5-0 out of 5 stars Carmen Sandiego Review
This program was fun and hard to solve. It was a wonderful learning experiance for me, I was far ahead in history and social studies because Carmen was hiding in some very interesting places. I recommend this program to kids 8-13 because its hard to understand in some ways but really fun when you get it. Oh, I'm off to find Carmen with Shakespere, bye!

1-0 out of 5 stars Won't work on Win 2000 or Win XP
Usually programs that work on Win 98 will work on Win XP and Win 2000. Not this one. Just be aware of this.

4-0 out of 5 stars four stars
This is a fun game that takes you to some dates throughout history. Carmen Sandiego is trying to rewrite history, and you must stop her.
This is a good game, but I gave it four stars because it's short game. Afteryou beat a level, you can go back to those levels later. A few of the levels are pretty hard, but most are easy.

4-0 out of 5 stars A learning adventure filled with excitement
Carmen has done it again, packing learning into an exciting adventure. Carmen has taken her villains back in time to steal priceless historical treasures.
The mission, travel to the past, solve any historical problems that Carmen's crew cause, and catch the villains.
The adventure will have you wrapping mummies in ancient Egypt, repairing pipes in Rome, traveling with Columbus and much more.
Recommended age level 9+ but we found it easy enough for a six year old with minimal help.

3-0 out of 5 stars Carmen Sandiego: The Simple Chase Through Time
With no time limit, and a guide who tells you what you need to know, this game isn't challenging and is best suited for children (although occasional assistance from an adult may be necessary). Compared to the original Carmen Sandiego, this version lacks a certain element of suspense and difficulty I was looking for. On the other hand, this game was informative and fun to play, and I would highly recommend it for 10-12 year olds. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Arthur's Second Grade
This is a good game that will prepare your child for the 2nd grade.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Good Buy
Arthur's Second Grade is a fun, challenging CD for 1st and 2nd Grade Children. Auto leveling (which challenges the child upon completion of a section of the CD), options to turn on and off the printer and background music, as well as suprises and rewards along the way make the CD experience interesting, stimulating and educational. My only complaint would be that the child's reading skills sections are uneven: sometimes too challenging, while in other places too easy, and that some math techniques could be more clearly explained. However, this CD is well worth the money and should provide hours of educational fun for your child. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Belle, Jasmine, and Ariel are your guides in Disney Princess Magical Dress-Up, a game that lets girls ages 5 and older play fashion designer with a vast range of princess dresses, hairstyles, and accessories. Players can design a model for the clothes on offer, choosing from a range of skin tones, body shapes, and hairstyles to create their inner princess. Alternately, they can create a new body and simply paste on a scanned photo of themselves.

Having constructed their model, girls can do a number of things--dress her up, search for more clothing and accessories in a trio of magical worlds, or paste finished ensembles into a sticker book. The last application allows you to literally insert yourself into animated scenery of Disney movies, creating pictures of yourself hobnobbing with characters from The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin.. Bright and relentlessly cheerful, the game urges girls to build pretty gown after pretty gown, complimenting their choices at every turn.

Burdened with an oversensitive installer and a balky interface, Disney Princess Magical Dress-Up never quite manages to overcome its flaws. Variations on this style of game abound, after all, hovering in an electronic netherworld between old-fashioned paper doll kits and more sophisticated makeover programs available to older girls. This particular version, though, has few things going for it. While it does allow players to design somewhat realistic princess models, its only real appeal lies in its three familiar characters and the recognizable aesthetic of its artwork. And even in this its scope is sadly limited, with no clothes on offer from the formidable collection of female villains in the Disney canon. Everything is very serious and very pretty, and girls wanting to build zany costumes--or even a reasonably varied wardrobe--may want to look elsewhere. --Alyx Dellamonica ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Kinda boring...
I bought this game because I love the Little Mermaid and seeing Ariel on the box made me very happy. Sadly, there is not much Ariel in the game. The most you can do is put your princess model into Ariel scenes. I was hoping to put my model into Ariel's mermaid costume, but sadly, there are not many Ariel costume options (just the wedding dress and a pink one that she wears when she is human). All the costume are the classic 'ballgown' princess style, and most of them are ugly, as a matter of fact. I enjoyed putting my face onto these models, but I was disappointed that there were no costumes I really liked to put myself in. A waste of time; if buying this, like me, because you are a fan of Ariel, don't waste your money. Buy 'Ariel's Story Studio' or 'Little Mermaid 2 Activity Centre' instead.

3-0 out of 5 stars My daughter likes it - I don't
We checked this software out of the library, thank goodness. I'd be unhappy if we'd spent money on it.

My five year old enjoys playing with it but I suspect she will tire of it before it's due back at the library as there is really nothing to do. You can decorate your horse, decorate the show ring, and run around a track. That's about it.

There does not seem to be any educational value whatsoever unless you're trying to teach a child how to click a mouse.

1-0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointed Royal Horse Show
Don't give your money to Disney for the Royal Horse Show. I'd hardly call this a game, more precise it is a vehicle to promote Disney princess characters. And even the promotion gained from this was probably a waste for them as my daughter's interest in the limited activities wained quickly.

There are only 4 options to choose from.
1-decorate your horse (this is probably the most engaging feature for my daughter but she lost interest quickly as there seem to be dead end options - you are told that you can show your horse in the ring but no path to do so is ever provided)
2-decorate the royal horse ring (my daughter had no interest in this)
3-ride your horse around the ring (the view is awkward - the top of the horse's head blocks most of the picture)
4-in the craft cottage there are the most awkward features of all (an empty scrapbook which you fill with your escapades - this never caught on with my daughter, a growth chart [what this has to do with the game I have no idea and because her computer is not hooked up to a printer the option just caused the game to hang], a box for horse cards to collect [we are still not sure what this is] and the value of any of this is lost on me).

4-0 out of 5 stars Cute
My 4 yo can operate much of this game. I'd rate it more for a 6 yo though... not any older. It's fun to dress up the horses. Not really a learning game, just for fun.

4-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for my little Princess
I got this for my preschooler for Christmas and she is loving it! I love the fact that she can design the princess to look like herself or a friend or just about anyone! Designing the dress and jewelry is her favorite part, but she could go all day if I let her! This is definitely a gift that won't lose its appeal soon and also one that will grow with her!!! ...

Amazon.com Review

Problem solving is at the fore of Curious George Downtown Adventure, a game that pits the inquisitive monkey against his own clumsiness! George has caused a series of minor accidents while shopping downtown with the Man in the Yellow Hat. Among other faux pas, he has trapped a window washer halfway up a building and lost someone's fan in a dumpster. In order to put everything right, George will have to travel all over the city, putting together the gadgets he needs to get the job done!

There are about 60 puzzles in this game, each structured as a challenge of mechanics. George must put together a group of simple devices like trampolines, ladders, and conveyer belts to move him to his current goal. Heavy objects can be dropped onto crates in need of shattering, while ramps and trampolines can get the monkey up to the otherwise inaccessible levels of the puzzle. Completion of some tasks will earn the player more "curiosity tools"--gizmos designed to help with the harder challenges. Be warned, though--sometimes finishing a puzzle just causes George to have another mishap!

Mechanically based puzzle games are nothing new, teaching basic physical concepts like gravity and momentum to children while giving their creativity a workout. In fact, some of these other games are vastly more complex, inventive, and rigorously devoted to the chain of cause and effect than Curious George Downtown Adventure. Even so, this package is competently designed and makes an excellent choice for kids who are newer to this form of gameplay. Its graphic design and interface are appealing, while its challenges increase in difficulty at a gentle pace. The game also offers plenty of help and encouragement for players who get stuck, and most of its puzzles have more than one solution, giving children an opportunity to try out new strategies as George tries to rescue balloons, elephants, and electric fans by the score. --Alyx Dellamonica ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Game
My 5 year old son loves this game. He has played through it 11 times in the last 6 months. Very original game that requires some planning and thought on where to put different items in order to move George through each situation. Also a help key that gives the answer away if you get frustrated.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great problem solving game!
I really like this game for my four year old, because it is different. It doesn't teach phonics, math or music, but the more abstract problem solving skills. And, he loves it because it's fun! He has to put together a sequence of events to get to the desired object. Very well designed!

4-0 out of 5 stars Only one complaint
My 5-year-old son loves this program. However, he is frustrated that he cannot enter one area because we don't have the "booster code." How do you get a booster code? You have to buy another product from the same company. It upsets me that the company cannot rely on the fine quality of their products to sell more, but have to resort to ambushing parents with a marketing gimmick that a 5-year-old is too young to understand.

5-0 out of 5 stars Once again, voted greatest Uncle of all time
My niece and I have a mutual understanding- monkeys are cool. It started with a monkey puppet "the tickle monkey" and evolved into Curious George toys. For her 3rd birthday I sent her very first software. She was very excited to get started on the computer (at long last since my sister has been fighting her off it) and loves it.
My sister feels this is a great introduction for her to the PC and she loves George's adventures. I'm looking forward to giving it a try myself, but until then I'll have to go on the assurance of a 3 year old that it is a great program.
(Well, her mom loves it too)

3-0 out of 5 stars Too hard for a 3 year old
This is a well-designed game and my son really likes to watch us play it but he is light years away from being able to do it himself. Frankly, my husband and I had trouble with a lot of the puzzles ourselves and we are both engineers. I was surprised that the previous reviewer said her 4 year old could do it, since I thought it would be pretty hard even for a six year old. Maybe we just haven't had enough practice yet. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Good addition to your educational software
My 3-year-old son loves the Winnie-the-Pooh games. He's not as big a fan of this one as he is of Pooh's ABC's; it's a bit "over-his-head," but I'm sure we'll get more use of it later on. The Winnie-the-Pooh Preschool game is by FAR his favorite. (I would also highly recommend it; VERY entertaining and educational, and that was how he learned to use the mouse. Great skill building activities.) Any of the Pooh titles would be a good buy.

5-0 out of 5 stars A One Hundred Acre Wood Full Of Spelling Fun!!!
Winnie The Pooh Spelling is a wonderful, educational way to learn, and have fun with Pooh. Spelling is adopted from the original Ready To Read With Pooh, but even if you already have that, it will still be a blast. As you begin Pooh will greet you with his cheerful "Here We Go Floating" song. Then, he will land right in front of your tree house, and he will say so. After which, Gofur will give you one of his mailboxes and you get to put your name on it. (Be sure to check your mail every time you come back to your tree house, because there will be letters from Pooh's friends that you can print.) Every direction around the tree house will be a game. To the west, there is Pooh's Hunny Pots. Pooh has just finished lunch, and he needs your help to put all of the hunny pots back on the shelves. To do that, simply put them back on the shelves in alphabetical order. You will receive highlighted hints of what needs to go where for level one, for level two, you don't need to necessarily follow the alphabet, but you'll need to get all of the pots matched with the certain letters on the shelves to clean up, without any hints, and for level three, you'll have to just, shall we say, "follow your instinct." After each level, Gofur will come down the chimney and present your prize. If you head in a rather eastish direction, you'll come to Piglet's Cupboards. Piglet is getting ready for lunch and he needs you help to match up his plates for it. To do that, simply open the doors until you get a match. For level one, match the plates with the same letters on them, (there will be both upper and lower case letters on the plates in this level,) for level two, there will be only one upper or lower case letter, (for example, A matches with A, and b matches with b,) And for level three, match the plate with the upper case letter with the plate with the lower case letter, (For example, C matches with c.) After you have completed a level, Gofur will break through the cupboard and reveal your prize. Finally, if you head "due north, by northwoodly", you'll get to play the best game here, Tiggers Don't Climb Trees. Tigger has bounced up into the tree, and it's going to be your job to help him get down. To do that, simply complete the quilt for Kanga, Roo, & Piglet to hold under Tigger to catch him when he falls. To complete the quilts on level one, put in the missing letter of the picture above the word at the front of the word to complete it, (for example, choose f for _an,) for level two, The same only with the last letter, (for example, choose g for do_,) and for level three, do the same only with the middle letter of the word, (for example choose a for c_t.) After you complete a level, Gofur will pop up out of the ground and reveal your prize. Speaking of prizes, you're probably wondering where they are going. Well, back to your tree house of course. Prizes will appear on the outside & inside of your tree house. So far it sounds like a great game, but wait it gets better. Also included are six, that's right, six demo games. There's Winnie The Pooh Toddler, Preschool, and Kindergarten. The same with Mickey Mouse. In Pooh Toddler and Mickey Toddler, help Pooh and friends get down to the ground after hanging on balloons, and help Minnie look for shapes all around her house. Toddlers don't even have to click to play most of it!!! Then, in Pooh Preschool and Mickey Preschool, help Pooh think of words to say to the magic tree to hear it in a different language, and help Goofy make 100 percent goof cars. Finally in Pooh Kindergarten and Mickey Kindergarten, make Tigger act out actions using wacky sentences, and learn the alphabet while keeping Goofy falling off the edge of a not-yet-completed building. Other titles in the Winnie The Pooh Learning Series include Pooh 123's, ABC's, Ready To Read, Ready For Math, Preschool, Toddler, and Kindergarten. You think I'm done? Yes, I am. Well that's it. I hope this review has helped you and encourages you to get this CD-ROM. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars mediocre software for avid Rescue Heroes fans only
Meteors have hit the planet, resulting in a series of widely scattered emergencies that require the Rescue Heroes to intervene -- and they need your help!!

The graphics are good, the intro is exciting .... but after that the game is totally mediocre. Four activities have three levels of difficulty, but they are quite tedious no matter what level you play. (1) Move around a water maze to rescue people in a flooded movie studio, and shoot a life preserver over a moving line of floating objects. (2) Navigate a maze on a rock face as you rescue stranded climbers while avoiding vicious eagles and snakes. (3) Aim a hose at brush fires so you can find and rescue animals on an African preserve. (4) Snowboard down a ski slope without hitting the shrubbery so you can dig people out from under an avalanche.

The hype is here, but the games are very boring. Your child has little flexibility or independence when performing tasks, and those tasks probably use only 2% of your child's brain power. For example, in order to dig people out of the avalanche, you click on the snow cave over and over, it doesn't matter where, until the person trapped within tells you how great you are -- and every time it's the same person in the snow cave. Each game is rather mindless in this way. There is little reasoning required and no skills acquired.

This is lame software that has neither educational value nor excitement. When there are so many worthwhile children's software titles out there, don't waste your money or your child's time on this lazy stuff. It may be worthwhile for the truly avid Rescue Heroes fan, but even that is doubtful. This was our first Rescue Heroes title. It is also our last.

5-0 out of 5 stars Lava Landslide
I gave this game to my son as an early birthday present. He's almost four and loves the Rescue Heroes. The reviews I read were mixed so I decided to buy it anyway. I'm really glad I did. Sure it's challenging, but it's a good excuse for the parents to get involved. First I did the hard parts for him, to show him what needed to be done. Then I guided him through them and finally he ended up doing it all by himself. He was so proud when he accomplished the hard tasks that he couldn't do at first!

Unlike most computer games this one requires the use of the arrow keys instead of the mouse. Well, it's always nice to learn new skills.
I can't wait to give my son the two other RH games I baught for his birthday. I have no doubt he'll love them too.

1-0 out of 5 stars Inaginext Pirate Raider
I gave it a 1 because they did not have a 0, to give. I bought this game for my son and I try to install it and it tells me that it has encountered an error. I go to the web site and it tells me what to do with that error, but after I do what it told me it does the same error thing again. My son and I both got so frustrated and finally gave up. I am returning it to the place where I purchased it for a full refund. Good luck for those of you that also bought this Horrible Game.

1-0 out of 5 stars Frustrating game for my almost 5 yr. old
I agree with other reviews that the mouse clicking is very difficult. It's difficult to maneuver the men around. My son tried for a few minutes, became so frustrated, I finished the one mission, but couldn't get him to do any more. Would recommend the I Spy software - ages 6-10, but he loves it! Don't have to know how to read.

4-0 out of 5 stars Yeah Pirate Raider!
My 7-year-old LOVES this game. He'd play from sun up to sun down if I let him. I hear him cheering and clapping in the other room and he's having so much fun!
I'm VERY anti-violence, so when he got this game I was concerned. I was pleased to discover that although the ships sometimes fire on each other, no people are ever involved. This makes it so much more abstract and less about killing. When you capture forts, you fire on canons only and never see people. When you capture other ships, your knife is used only to chop up fruit that's thrown at you by skeletons. Once you capture their gold, you're on your way to fulfill another mission.
Frankly, this game is so much fun I have to admit to playing it myself! ... Read more

Barbie is finally a woman of action. Taking up international espionagein Secret Agent Barbie, she travels the world in pursuit of justice. Athief has stolen valuable clothing from a friend of hers, a fashion designer whois just setting up for a big show.

In order to bring the thieves to justice, Barbie has a full team of helpers anda complement of gadgetry. To get past a guard who won't let her through a door,she uses her compact to blow foundation in his face. To investigate areas tootiny for her to access, she has a robotic spy puppy. Her Pinkvision goggles canseek out the combinations to otherwise secured doors. Finally, Barbie has twogymnastic skills: dive rolls that carry her past guarded areas, and jumps to getover obstacles and laser alarms.

By virtue of its emphasis on gizmos, this game makes itself a distant relativeof pop-culture heroes like James Bond or the Mission Impossible teams.However, Secret Agent Barbie lacks the defining characteristic of thismilieu: violence. Barbie has a stealth mode for sneaking around game scenery, anadventure mode for calmer moments, and an action mode for running and jumping.(Each of these modes comes with its own costume options.) What Barbie doesn'thave is a fight mode. Whether this is a good or bad thing may be entirely amatter of parental and player opinion.

Regardless of your position on mayhem, Secret Agent Barbie has a fewdefinite weaknesses. Gameplay is really just a process of moving from oneanimated sequence to the next--and the quality of these sometimes lengthy moviesis only so-so. The game is highly inflexible, pursuing a straight path to thestolen fashions. As a result, its replay factor is almost zero. As for themystery-solving element, players don't find clues so much as stumble overthem.

That said, Secret Agent Barbie does move the widely beloved doll into adistinctly macho career path, allowing girls to tag along with their heroine ona globetrotting adventure. (Ages 6 and older) --Alyx Dellamonica ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars "Secret Agent Barbie is so really cool and also colourful!"
I loved Secret Agent Barbie. Usually I think of Barbie doll as something for younger girls because some older girls seem to think of Barbie as lame or dumb or something, but not always because I do like her. Anyway, this game was so cool! Barbie is a secret agent, and the game is so fun from the start! It starts out on a plane, where Barbie goes in training to learn all these different moves like rolling and jumping. Barbie, being Barbie, uses cool gizmos and gadgets that look a lot like makeup. For example, to sneak past guards without them catching her or not letting her by, she takes out some powder that's like foundation or blush and blows it in the person's face to where he can't see for a moment but cough. She records private conversations using a lipstick I think it is, and she wears these pink sunglasses type things that enable her to see secret codes and combinations. She travels to exotic places like Paris, France and somewhere in Japan, also New York; she always goes by plane and lands by parachute! She chooses different clothes and outfits to wear and there are different modes to play-action is one. She has a robotic puppy, too. She also has a friend who talks to her a lot by a certain spy gagdet thing, who just happens to be in a wheelchair! It's funny, all the guard dudes look and sound the same. Sometimes Barbie can get a little annoying by saying the same things over and over, and the stuff can be frustrating by being challenging. Barbie's mission includes finding some thief who's making a invisible suit which Barbie gets to put on! The theif steals special dye from some plant and clothes I think from a designer friend of Barbie's, (who I think is Theresea). Anyhow, this game is soooo really cool and a must-buy for girls this product would interest! I haven't played it in a while though.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!
I was a thirteen year old when I recieved this. I had wanted it because I'm into girls saving the world, spies, secret agents, you know, the NANCY DREW sort of thing.

Barbie can jump from rooftop to rooftop, record secret conversations with a hidden device, find messages with a pair of sunglasses, and track a sneaky person using what looks like plain old perfume.

Barbie can blow powder in a guard's face when trying to sneak through a door she is not allowed in. You get a few seconds to put away the powder and walk past him.

She can also sneak and tumble when she is in STEALTH MODE. In ACTION MODE you can run and jump, in ADVENTURE MODE you can talk to people and walk around. In all modes you can use your gadgets and do puzzles.

You can go to Tokyo, Rio, Egypt, France, and New York in a private jet. Aboard the jet is a training room where you can practice all your 007 stunts.

This was a nice game, except it was a bit hard. You never died, or lost a life, you just got to do it again. The spotlights, lasers, and the cameras are pretty hard to dodge, so a parent should accompany their daughter while playing this game.

CIAO!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Game
Secret Agent Barbie is a fun game. I got it when I sprained my ankle a few years ago. It's strongest point would probably be that there is something in it for everyone.
But I also think that that can be it's weak point. I like the action mode, but you can only be in that for certain parts of the game. Barbie's pace isn't very fast in the other modes.
Also, this game can be un-realistic. Like Barbie will say, 'I think that's the suspect!', but will take the time to change her outfit before she goes after him.
This games a good one anyway. I'd reccomend it to any girl who likes Barbie. But another weak point is that you don't get to do much sleuthing on your own. It's all set out for you. If you want a real challenge, I reccomend the Nancy Drew games, which are really good.
Anyhow, this game is really nice. I'd reccomend it 9 and under. If you like either action, adventure, or fashion, you'd probably like this game!

3-0 out of 5 stars a great game for a while
My grandparents bought this game to for me, my brothers and sisters,and my cousins. At first it was great! It was challenging. I got to leap across roofs, break codes, desguise myself, and do lots of other things. There were quite a few cool gadgets like a lipstick recorder, robot spy puppy (my favorite) and a perfume tracker. You have to find out who stole barbie's friend's fashion clothes. There are dozens of different outfits that you can choose from at different times. First you can do training so you know how to do spy moves, but you don't have to. It's easy to use. After I completed the mission once though, it wasn't as great. I don't play it much any more. If I owned it though, I don't think I would play it at all! I think this should be for ages seven and up, because of the hardness of the puzzles. Hope this review is helpful!

3-0 out of 5 stars Just OK
My 6-yr-old daughter received this game as a gift and we found it to be fairly disappointing. It keeps jamming up, the graphics aren't great, and it's annoying that Barbie has to change her outfit whenever she wants to switch between "stealth" mode, for example, and "action" mode. My daughter hardly ever plays this game and prefers Barbie Explorer for its faster and more exciting pace. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Not for limited users on XP which kids should be.
I also should have read the reviews on this however, my Daughter loves this game. I do not have the problems with sound or graphics as they are very clear on our system. However, my 4 year old now has to have Administrator rights on the system in order to play this game. I bought XP so I could allow the kids functionality on the computer without me hovering over them. I studied how to set the system up for limited users and Administrators (which can do everything), but now all that work and the money for the product are gone. I have made my complaint with Disney as they are the ones that informed me that they have no intention on changing this product.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worst... Kid's Software... Ever.
Believe me, kid's software in general is not that great (though there are some notable exceptions.) So it is a pretty big deal for me to say that this is the worst kid's software I have ever seen. It literally kept my kid busy for about half an hour, and when I looked at it I saw why; no challenge, no interest, very little content.

The premise of the game is that you go to all these different rooms from the Cinderella mythos (the basement, Cinderella's bedroom in the castle, etc) and drop furniture, characters, and objects onto them. Sometimes these objects will interact with each other. Kind of like the excellent Catz! series, except for way more static and non-interactive.

First of all, even if this was enough to carry a game, which it's not, there's hardly any decent content. There are like 5 rooms total, and maybe 6 or 8 characters, and probably 30 total furniture and object items to throw on there. And then, your kid is done playing.

My daughter (5) summed it up nicely; she said "Daddy, this game is boring."

Avoid, avoid, avoid. A waste of money at any price. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Another wonderful day in the Hundred Acre Woods
I purchased this game for my two year old son after he just about wore out Winnie the Pooh's ABC's. This game is easy for my toddler to navigate by himself, and I can see daily improvements in his mathematical skills.

As a parent, I like this game because not only is it fun, but it is educational. My son doesn't have a whole lot of games at this point, but I do think that this game, and Winnie the Pooh's ABCs, are two of the better educational games. They have more interactive activities that challenge your child to use the concepts that the games are trying to teach, and they do so at an age appropriate level.

5-0 out of 5 stars A One Hundred Acre Wood Full Of 123 Fun!!!
Winnie The Pooh 123's is a wonderful, educational way to learn, and have fun with Pooh. 123's is adopted from the original Ready For Math With Pooh, but even if you already have that, it will still be a blast. As you begin, Pooh will greet you with his cheerful "Here We Go Floating" song. Then, he will land on a thistle bush, and say that since this is Eeyore's garden, we should make it more cheerful for him. After which Gofur will give you one of his wheelbarrows and you get to put your name on it. (Also, be sure to check the notes on the back of the fence every time you come back to your garden.) Every direction around the garden will be a game. To west, there is Pooh's Smackeral Pots. Pooh has some fresh picked veggies and fruits and it's going to be your job to put them all away. There are three sets of fruits and veggies all together. After all of the pots are full, there will be a special pot that will sing you the number song. Then Gofur will come in on a wheelbarrow and reveal your prize. If you go in an eastish direction, you will find Piglet's Cupcake Kitchen. Here, you get to help Piglet decorate his delicious cupcakes for his friends. But be careful. Tigger may come along and eat some of your delicious cupcakes!!!! After you have completed all the batches of cupcakes, Gofur will come down from the top of the screen and give you your prize. Finally, if you go "due north, by northwoodly", you will come to Tigger And Roo's Buggily Wuggily Game. Tigger and Roo are collecting bugs. You have to sort the bugs into each other's trays. On level one there are five sets, and on levels two and three there are five sets but not all of the bugs everyone wants are under the right magnifying glass. Take my word for it, this is the best game in the CD-ROM. After all of the bugs are sorted and all of the sets are complete, Gofur will give you a bug as your prize. Speaking of prizes, you're probably wondering where they are going. Well, back to your garden of course. Prizes will appear all over your garden.

So far it sounds like a great game, but wait it gets better. Also included are six, that's right, six demo games. There's Winnie The Pooh Toddler, Preschool, and Kindergarten. The same with Mickey Mouse. In Pooh Toddler and Mickey Toddler, help Pooh and friends get down to the ground after hanging on balloons, and help Minnie look for shapes all around her house. Toddlers don't even have to click to play most of it!!! Then, in Pooh Preschool and Mickey Preschool, help Pooh think of words to say to the magic tree to hear it in a different language, and help Goofy make 100 percent goof cars. Finally in Pooh Kindergarten and Mickey Kindergarten, make Tigger act out actions using wacky sentences, and learn the alphabet while keeping Goofy falling off the edge of a not-yet-completed building. Other titles in the Winnie The Pooh Learning Series include Pooh ABC's, Spelling, Ready To Read, Ready For Math, Preschool, Toddler, and Kindergarten. You think I'm done? Yes, I am. Well that's it. I hope this review has helped you and encourages you to get this CD-ROM. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Hot CD for my boys!!!
My boys who are 5 and 7 love this CD. The CD calls them by name which is really cool. The action scenes capture their attention. I bought this CD despite having no girls to share it with. Yes, there is a lot of pink, but the fun is worth it!!! My son who says he "hates girls" still loves this CD. We have had fun with it for 8 months straight. Ton o' fun for the money!!! Monika

1-0 out of 5 stars BEWARE OF WRONG MERCHANDISE!
This is NOT the Detective Barbie described. Instead of the carnival mystery, it is actually the VACATION mystery.. entirely different!!!
Even the wrong photo is displayed for sale. VERY DISAPPOINTING!

4-0 out of 5 stars not just for girls
My three older children have enjoyed the Mystry of the carnival caper, They like riding the rides and being the first to win a prize at the sideshow as several children can join in.
The game play is fairly basic once you realise that you find a clue and go to the place the clue describes and you will find the next clue or you will see the suspect and have to catch him. You sometimes find keys which you will need to rescue ken. The magifiying glass is often nessecary to find the hand print that leads you to the clue. You can talk to the other characters. Catching the suspect is not always easy but if you do loose him you get another chance by following his footprints to more clues.
The good points are riding the rides is fun, there are three suspects all which are randomly chosen as the criminal and you dont know until the end which one it is, so the end is always a surprise. No two games are the same as the order of the clues is very random. The place where ken is hidden changes each time. There is plenty of replayability.
The bad points, character control is very clumsey, you use the mouse but must place the arrow at the edge of the screen to get the barbie to walk where you want her too, my younger children found this quite frustrating as the position of the mouse does not relate well to where the character is.
You must pick a name from the list and although it is a large list with a good variety of common and uncommon names your childs name may not be there particulary if it is a boy, then you have to pick something that is close in sound or an acceptable substitute, Barbie requently refers to your child by name so if the names not there it makes it difficult.
Overall it is a fun game, just remember to follow the clues as one clue leads to the next and finally the suspect and if you get stuck use the magnifying glass and follow the footprints. The clue computer does show the hot clue, the one you havent followed and the cold clues the ones that have already led you to a clue, and remember there may also be a key or tool you need hidden in the same place as a clue so look around with the magnifying glass even after you have found the clue.
