5-0 out of 5 stars Easy for kids to do and FUN
Reader Rabbit Toddler is the best software I have bought so far - its easy for my son to use (if kids cannot use the mouse yet most games work just by hitting keys) and has alot of fun activities. From the main menu you move a "Star flower" to one of nine fun activities - including an alphabet train where you match the letter key to the boxcar to see it open; a musical meadow where you move a bee from flower to flower to hear them play; a bubble castle where you pop bubbles to free the animals - it has a variety of fun activities that my son has loved from 18 months to 3+.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great fun but a bit buggy
This program is a lot of fun and has a variety of activities to delight little ones. Because the activities can all be done just by moving the mouse or trackball (without pressing buttons), even a very beginning mouser can manage it. Pressing (or pounding on) keys also causes things to happen on the screen, so even without using the mouse your child can have a great time if you are brave enough to let him or her pound on your keyboard (not necessarily recommended - my daughter made off with my Z last week!) Many of the toddler activities are simple enough to do that a younger child can enjoy them too (but they still have learning potential for the toddler). My only complaint is that the program seems a bit buggy. It periodically locks up my computer so I have to reboot, which is very frustrating for my daughter. Overall it's a lot of fun.

By the way, this program is a combination of Playtime for Baby and Playtime for Toddler packaged together. I was a little confused about how these products were related originally.

5-0 out of 5 stars A joy for my 20-month-old daughter
My daughter Catherine enjoys this software package far more than the other two computer games we have for her (Lego Preschool MyStyle and Disney's Mickey Toddler, both of which are good in their own right). There are lots of activities involving cute animated animals, and Catherine never gets bored -- even Daddy is entertained. Some of our favorites are the Kaleidoscope at the Baby level, and the Bubble Castle and the Musical Meadow at the Toddler level.

The sounds, colors, and animation are excellent throughout. Many activities allow use of the keyboard as well as the mouse, a very nice feature for youngsters who can pound on keys with more facility than they can navigate by mouse.

5-0 out of 5 stars At last, something my little girl can do on the computer!
Emily was dying to "work" on the computer, but she kept hitting Windows buttons and crashing the machine. We bought Reader Rabbit and suddenly, hitting buttons actually made things happen (besides Mama yelling "stop!") and the "bad" buttons were disabled. Even the mouse is fun to use, because you can reunite lost baby animals with their parents, color a picture that sings to you, create music of your own, or many, many other great activities. Great software, very well done.

5-0 out of 5 stars So cute!
This game is adorable! My 11 month old son loves it and it keeps him mesmerized. He especially like it when he can 'interact' and pound away on the keyboard. Even my 4 year old son begs to play this game! Highly recommend! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars mother of two busy boys
I purchased this package two years ago when my oldest son was almost 4 years old. He seldom played with Little Bear, liked the computer adventure with Arthur, but loved Dr. Seuss. This CD ROM alone has been paid for over and over. The features that are great for the children not only include the 7 areas of play (sequencing, measuring, matching, alphabet, spelling, grouping, and math..... plus other little things to do along the way), but the ability to change the level of difficulty within each area. There are 3 levels of difficulty for each area that allow the child to master a level then challenge themselves to the next level of difficulty. It is easy to move up or down a level during the game.

Follow along with your child so you know what they mean when they tell you they like "the Star Belly Sneeches" or "the Rumble Tub", and "Truffula Fruits" the best. The Dr. Seuss vernacular is another one of those things that makes this game unique.

We own about 15 childrens' CD-Roms and this one is by far the favorite. It is fun for the children while the parents feel like they are actually learning something. Our oldest child is on the verge of out growning it (6 years), but our second child, age 3, is right there to take his place.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Programs, Good Value
These are not my four-year-old daughter's favorite programs but she does choose them occasionally from her CD-ROM album. The graphics are not cutting edge crisp but are still good by 2003 standards. Parents should love the Dr. Seuss as it brought back a lot of nostalgia for me. My daughter's first book to read on her own was Green Eggs & Ham so it's fun for her to see Dr. Seuss on computer too. All three games are highly educational and a good value sold together. It seems the "Little Bear" title is much easier than the other two.

5-0 out of 5 stars Loved the Dr. Seuss game
We have bought several CD packs for our 3 yr old daughter including: Living books: Grandma & Me, Brighter Child: The Muppets, Jumpstart: Numbers, Jumpstart: ABC's, and Jumpstart:Pre-K. Adventure Workshop: Preschool-1st grade seems by far the best. Arthur's Computer Adventure (part of this Adventure Workshop pack)is on par with Just Grandma & Me. Both are interactive stories that our daughter enjoys working with. She particularly likes the cashier section of the story.

Little Bear (also part of the Adventure Workshop pack) is a fun game. Our daughter really likes making cookies and dressing up various characters. But, by far the best, is the Dr. Seuss game. We really like this game because it is very educational. Our daughter really likes this game because she really likes the song and dance of the various Dr. Seuss creatures and the background story the games take place in. Unlike the similar Jumpstart games, the Adventure workshop games are challenging without causing her to feel frustrated if she hasn't mastered the task. Dr. Seuss has really helped our daughter better grasp counting and adding, recognize patterns, and identify letters of the alphabet. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Based on the popular PBS television show, Zoboomafoo Animal Alphabet takes kids on a guided tour of their ABCs, allowing them to brush up early reading and spelling skills while learning about animals from the Kratt brothers and their leaping lemur friend.

An educational activity center for children in the 3 to 6 years age range, this game offers a variety of simple minigames designed to build alphabet knowledge by capitalizing on a young player's curiosity about the animal kingdom. Users can color animal flash cards or play an arcade-style round of Penguin Pong, bouncing ice floes off each other to reveal the answer to a quiz question. Alternately, they can go to Animal Mixups, a top-notch activity where kids mix and match animals, grafting a zebra head, to take one possibility, onto a tiger torso, perhaps with a cow or reindeer tail to finish.

As an extra bonus, play is interspersed with lengthy live-action sequences from the television program. A win in one of the spelling games triggers a shot of the Kratt brothers going face-first into a mud pit. The Kratts and Zoboomafoo the leaping lemur also host a collection game, where players seek out animals whose names start with the different letters of the alphabet, and then get to see video footage of the creature itself.

Animal lovers and fans of the show should enjoy Zoboomafoo Animal Alphabet thoroughly, especially if they have never seen a game of this type before. More experienced players may recognize that about half of its activities are standard fare, reworked versions of games that appear repeatedly in educational software. This is the only complaint to be made, though, with what is otherwise a completely engaging game with lots of fascinating animal facts and great potential for teaching young learners some basic reading skills.

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice mix of learning and fun
My 3 year-old really enjoys this game. It is perfect for a child who is learning her capital letters, but who is not quite ready for phonics yet. Also, while the graphics aren't superb, they are good enough for a pre-schooler and make her feel like she is interacting with the show. The CD-ROM also has a nice variety of games where different skill sets are tested. My only reservation is that that the software seems to have a few glitches on my Windows XP.

4-0 out of 5 stars a good collection...
of games that teach spelling, reading and letter recognition. In addition to this, are the usual colouring and puzzle games. The positives: my 3 year old is quickly learning how to spell simple words and seems to enjoy the animal movies and graphics. The negatives: the font they've used for the games utilizing the alphabet is quite difficult to read (the k could be an x, etc.) Easy readability is crucial to a teaching program such as this, when will they learn? Also, the "Penguin Pong" program needs a patch but it is easily retrieved if you go to the Learning Company's website.

2-0 out of 5 stars Pass On This One
With all the software titles available now days, I would suggest passing on this one. My child loves animals and learning, however, this is one of our least favorites. Maybe this is because we have access to more software (family "hand-me-downs") so this one just sits. After using this a few times I kept thinking there would be more substance, there isn't. I would suggest one of the JumpStart learning series (jumpstart advanced preschool etc.).

2-0 out of 5 stars kids and parents deserve better than this lame software
I am really startled at the praise this software is getting. We own approximately twenty software titles for children and I would rank this as one of the three worst. In its favor it does not crash, but the quality of both format and content is poor.

First off, the resolution is bad. We've run this game on a Macintosh laptop and desktop computer, and the introductory footage looks fuzzy on both.

The live-action introduction is fun for fans of the show, but the few live-action sequences in the game's interior are not enough to keep little ones happy. The Kratt brothers are charming hosts of the television show but we don't see enough of them in this game. After the introduction children see a pan-and-scan version of Animal Junction populated with twenty-six clickable animals, each representing a different letter of the alphabet. When kids click on one of the animals, they receive a "page" with a picture and an assortment of facts about that creature, though in eight instances a child is presented instead with a game (more about these later). Confusingly, when a game is finished we hear Zoboo say, "That was great! Here's your animal page. Do you want to play again?" Instead of seeing an animal page, kids get a Yes-No choice. If they choose Yes they go to a game repeat. If they choose No they then go to the appropriate animal page. Did they beta test this at all?

Finally, the games are neither well-explained nor are they well-designed for children. Penguin Pong, even at the lowest of three difficulty levels, moves slowly and, in the vein of the classic game Pong, you have to knock out 49 blocks. It takes forever and kids get bored. Similarly interminable, the letter scramble is also a mess. A child must rearrange letters to form the name of a pictured animal, then click on a virtual spinner to advance Zoboo 1, 2, 3 or 4 spaces on a "game board". First complaint: when a child uses a letter from the scramble list it remains active, which is confusing for little ones. Second complaint: the game board is 35 spaces long -- it takes at least nine scrambles, and usually many more, for Zoboo to get to the end. Third complaint: when Zoboo does finally reach the 35th square, nothing interesting happens, unless you count that now-familiar non sequitur, "That was great! Here's your animal page. Do you want to play again?" What's the lesson here -- lowered expectations? In the Noodle Hut game, Zoboo asks for a letter and your child is supposed to click on it amid a field of noodles, each with a letter on it. But even at the lowest difficulty level, there are multiple examples of letters, again confusing to little ones. If there are three "R"s, which one should they click on? Also, some of the letters are presented at a three-quarter view which makes them less recognizable. Why would you do that to young children just learning their letters? My final complaint, and an important one, is that the games are not presented within any story or context to make them either interesting or meaningful.

I could continue to find fault with each of the other games, but why bother? This is lazy, sloppy software that is not good enough for your child. Instead, buy Blue's Clues or Franklin or Reader Rabbit software -- consistently well-designed and well-written. It is strange and disappointing that PBS, long considered THE leader in creative educational children's programming and products, seems to be faltering in the wake of recent competition.

Our family will continue to watch and enjoy the Zoboomafoo television show, but this software is a loser.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Educational Fun!
When my 6 year old was struggling with new math concepts, I bought a lot of software. I wanted something for her that was both educational, and fun. This program is by far the best we've tried. You can set the difficulty levels, so kids don't get frustrated, but also they don't get bored. The characters are really cute, and because there is an overall goal of building the boat, kids want to keep playing! For each 3-5 question activity they complete, they get a boat part as a reward. The various activities cover all math basics, including fractions, money, and time.

With other programs, my daughter would play, and then get bored or overly frustrated very quickly, but because of the ability to customize this game to your child's skill level, she played for hours and hours. The skill levels on it vary widely, so it can teach concepts from a 1st through 3rd grade level, unlike so many games that are only relevant for one grade. My daughter's gotten tons of fun math practice out of this game, and she's still playing! I'd recommend it to anyone.

5-0 out of 5 stars A kid favorite!
My sons will be in 2nd and 3rd grade in the fall. They just love this game and would rather play it than any of their other games. I hope to find a sequel for they will be done with this game before long.

5-0 out of 5 stars we love it
We got this software for our five year old daughter and she loves it. At first she needed some parents' help. But soon she likes to play by herself, occasionally asks some questions. She got it a few weeks ago and has already learned so much from it. Her favorite parts are actually pretty challenging for a five year old -- fraction, money and time. She will need to learn some more from school to play the difficult part of this game, but she can already "play" most of it. she enjoys play and learn at the same time. we are very happy about this game. Our daughter is a very advanced five year old who joins 2nd grade reading group in her school everyday. This software helps her catch up with the math part and really enjoy it.

I'm a 2nd grader and my friends and I play Reader Rabbit 2nd grade at school and we love it! Everbody in the class says, hey can I go on the computer. It is fun and educational. I asked my mom to get it for home, so I could play more.

Okay, I'm in sixth grade- a little old for a second grade game, but I DON'T CARE! This is a really great computer game that features my favorite Reader Rabbit character, Sam the Lion. He's so strange. And if any of you get stuck in the skillways because you can't get past the trapdoor (this happened to me), you can jump OVER the trapdoor by pushing the Up arrow and the LEFT arrow. (Many thanks to my eagle-eyed little sister for discovering this.) In short, this is a really great game that is not just for second graders. ... Read more

Ok ok I can't really say I've had the pleasure of buying this game (frankly I think it's a bit over priced ) but I can say I've purchased Knowledge Adventure's previous merchandise before it has always had complete satifactory. I've bought a few of there items in the past and they were very educational and benifitial .Knowledge Adventure trys to make there software educational and fun . That's what's important right? You wanna teach your children and help them to learn yet try to catch there attention with something at a children's level. This spy idea sure did catch MY attention ! I think it's one of the best ways to teach children instead of forcing facts in to there heads with telvision shows all the time and work books. In conclusion I'd like to say this item sounds like a good way of teaching your children langauge , math facts and so on . Go ahead and buy it!

Arthur and his buddies enthusiastically take over a library, using video walls, gigantic books, and funky contraptions to teach basic reading skills. Maybe they should have paid a bit more attention to one ingredient that all libraries have in abundance: interesting information.

Arthur's Reading Games contains five reading activities that deal with spelling, word construction using parts of words and individual letters, whole-word recognition, and story building. Kids can also take a break from the world of words by visiting the Dance Theater, where they can program Arthur to boogie along to his theme song, and paint different backdrops for the stage he dances on. The same activity can be found on Arthur's Learning Games.

Francine's "Word-O-Matic" is one of the better games. Francine has built a machine that turns a vat of green goo into parts of words. The invention intones the word to be spelled, and hands over the first letter, and players must decide which blob of goo will complete the word. A writing activity gets laughs with the nonsensical options it offers kids, who must fill in the blanks to complete a one-page story in a big book Buster has discovered. At level one, the options are pictures (toilet, tiger, liver) that get plugged into the story. At level five, kids get written lists of adjectives, verbs, and other parts of speech to choose from. The goofiness of the choices occasionally gets in the way of good grammar. We managed to create many wacky, yet incorrect, sentences such as: "It takes special tiger to shop for a nice outfit."

Favorite Arthur characters lead each of the five activities, yet they do not remedy the plainness of some of these offerings. A "guess the word" game that left us wanting more featured Arthur's little sis, DW, standing on a ladder in the stacks and demanding kids spell a word she's thinking of by clicking on letters on the spines of books. If the correct letter is clicked, the book gets moved onto the library shelf, and when the word is eventually built (the only clue DW gives players is the number of letters) DW repeats the word, and all of the books go back to the cart for another round. When we spelled "COB" the word wasn't used in a sentence, no book about corn flew out of the stacks, and the library remained indifferently silent. Arthur's Reading Games doesn't exploit the creative possibilities of its setting, nor does it effectively explore the wonders that reading can unlock, which is a shameful waste of any library.

4-0 out of 5 stars Teacher Recommended!
I teach kids on a K-4 level and they all love this game! Phonics, letter reconision, even ABC order. My students fight over this one. Better for younger students/children just learning to read or with a minimum reading background.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good choice for learning letter
My 3-year-old son really enjoys this. It's easy to navigate, colorful and fun. AND it does a nice job of teaching ABC basics.

3-0 out of 5 stars disney reading abc/disney math 123
The six demo discs mentioned in a review were not sent with my order nor is there any indication that they will be coming. Also the disc appears to be the same as a previous disc I purchased entitled Disney's ready for Reading/Math. This is a great disc, but reviews and titles were deceiving which accounts for my disappointment.

5-0 out of 5 stars A One Hundred Acre Wood Full Of ABC Fun!!!
Winnie The Pooh ABC's is a wonderful, educational way to learn, and have fun with Pooh. ABC's 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 Roo's Sandy Pit. Roo wants to play with his friends, but they are all to busy. So, Tigger makes friends from the sand for Roo to play with. Now it's time to imagine. First, you pick a sand friend, then an object from the sand, and then
Roo will imagine the rest. He likes to imagine at least five times, so you will keep track with flowers by the sand pit. Afterwards, Gofur will dig up a hole from the pit and reveal your prize. Take my word for it, this is the best game in the CD-ROM. If you go in an eastish direction, you will find Tigger's Jack In The Boxies. Tigger wants to play with all his jack in the boxies, but he forgot to label all of them to tell what sound they make. That's going to be your job. You need to click on all of the boxies, and see what sound they make. Then you need to take the letter off of a log and put it on that boxie. After that the boxie will open and show you something that starts with that letter. After all four sets are complete, then another boxie will drop from the sky. Gofur will be in it with your prize. Finally, if you head "due north, by northwoodly", you will come to the game Eeyore's Book. It was another blustery day in the Hundred Acre Wood, and poor Eeyore's book was torn to shreds. It is up to you to put all the pictures back on each page. There are twenty-six pages on level one, and twelve on levels two and three. After each book is fixed, Eeyore will give you bookmarks to print and color, and the prize from Gofur will be the book that you completed. 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 and 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, 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
