5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful computer animation and fun story
Kids don't usually learn much science (in public school anyway) and this computer game REALLY helps to fill that void. It is educational, VERY attractively designed, interesting, and my [...] daughter really enjoys it! It's not too hard either.

5-0 out of 5 stars A good blend of storytelling and fun
We got "Math Blaster" for our six-year-old, who has been a very savvy computer user since he was 18 months old.It was so difficult to maneuver the character (jump over wrong answers, run through correct ones) he actually cried over it.
5-0 out of 5 stars My 5 year old adores this game!
My 5 year old son love the Mia character and the stories. He loves the math(which does involve time), too! Even though the age group for this game is 6-10, he had no problems on Level 1. He only needed a little help with the time telling. As for the people that say this isn't educational enough I would say that it's not boring! My son has played the game over and over and never tires of Mia! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Buy this one Now
We have been fans of the I Spy Books & Software for some time, but this is our new favourite.The graphics are great & the levels within each "story" keep my 6 year old twin boys busy when Mummy needs a break.The I Spy Team should keep up the good work - this is a computer game that won't turn kids brains to mush!

5-0 out of 5 stars i spy fantasy

Editorial Review

"Not too long ago, Zoombinis enjoyed the good life. Though they alllooked slightly different--different eyes, noses, hair, feet--such differencesmeant nothing to the Zoombinis. And so they lived happily on Zoombini Isle,making small, useful products, which were prized the world over." So begins anunsuspectingly addictive CD-ROM, featuring uncommonly fun reasoning games thatrequire serious problem solving and math-thinking work. Yet the perils that facethis cheerful society are not as fearsome as the amount of time you'llpotentially spend on this pursuit. Beware the chubby, chattering Zoombinis ifyou don't want to get hooked to your computer for at least 90 minutes asession!Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Why I like Zoombinis
Hi, my name is Manuel, I am 6 years old and I like Zoombinis a lot because of all the adventures they go through to pass activities and discover new lands. I also like them because the stories are very exciting.
5-0 out of 5 stars So much fun!
This is one of the very few computer games where there are no glitches. The graphics, sound, and over all logic of this game are wonderous. Though some people may say it is for younger kids- they are wrong, my olmost fourteen year old cousin loves it- and even adults like it! It's not the same puzzle over and over agin either- clear directions and changing goals and directions give this game a little lift. There is so much more I could talk about with this game- but I don't want to bore you- overall this game is great!

5-0 out of 5 stars I love'd this game!
I was probably 14 when I played Zoombinis. My aunt had it for my cousins and well for her too, and thought that I would really like it. Not only do you learn and have fun it's so addicting. The best part about it is that you don't even realize you are learning. I am now 24 and recently purchased the game for myself. Not because I need a refresher course but because I enjoyed it so much. I think that this is a great game for the classroom. I've encouraged many of my friends that educate to install into their classrooms. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Graphics are excellent but game sucks.
The creators of Mia's Reading Adventure would be better engaged creating movies and not children's games. There is just way too much expository and not enough interaction to make this worth your child's effort. If you're looking to teach your pre-k/k child reading skills I'd recommend the Blue's Clues games instead. Any older children would probably get as frustrated as mine did.

3-0 out of 5 stars Content is ok but without state saving
I bought this CD for my 5 years daughter. She likes it but it is quite hard for her to progress. Everytime you need to spend a few minutes to listen to the sing without a way to get rid of it. There is no state save function in the game, every time you need to start from the begin.

3-0 out of 5 stars useful as a game, but not to learn to read or help with the process
I thought this game would be useful to help my daughter start with the reading process, but that is not the case. As a game it's pretty entertaining, and it has very subtle clues that makes children have to think and look farther beyond.I would place the correct ages for this game between 6 and a half and eight and a half years old.

1-0 out of 5 stars Avoid at all costs
I agree with the reviewer who urges you to stay away from this and other Scholastic products if you run Windows XP.I received School Days and Spooky Mansion today but can't get either to run on XP, even though I am generally quite adept at working with computers.I will never buy another product from this company, even if it works well on XP.These products say they work with "Windows 95, 98, 2000 or later."Don't believe it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not Windows XP Compatible
I just tossed this one in the trash. It looked like a good game for my girls but unfortunately Scholastic doesn't believe in updating or supporting their products. I'd be very leary of buying any software from this company since software returns are difficult to negotiate. I would appreciate a list of truly Windows XP compatible children's software titles. Windows XP has been around for at least a couple of years now. I don't understand why compatibility is such a problem. Their support site cites that the problem is "you have too much installed RAM." Well, for most software, that is not a "bad" thing.

5-0 out of 5 stars I spy school days! FUN!!!
Just a great fun game with so many rooms and levels. My 7 year old loves it and it helps in learning to concentrate! I like watching her play. There is a room where she can make her own clues for an I spy game. How fun is that and gives a child the room to invent and create!! Buy!! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars I Spy Spooky Mansion
My kids (4 and 7 yrs old) love this game.The haunted house element of this game adds a nice twist that makes this game even more fun than the other I Spy games.These games also have some educational value and are fun to play with multiple players or with the entire family.Highly recommended.

3-0 out of 5 stars Pretty good product
This product is pretty good.My little boy is 5 and is just really wanting to learn Spanish so I bought this product to help him.The animation is spectacular but he got bored with it very quickly.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to Play, Easy to Load, Easy to Love!
This game is great!After buying Mia Reading I thought it was a great idea to get my 2 girls to start learning Spanish since we live in a global village. They game was easy to load, easy to navigate and the level was perfect for beginners. The high quality 3D animation will blow you away. Even my husband who learned 3D animation at the Vancouver Film School was blown away. The best part is, that they love playing it as they think it is a game. They forget they're learning numbers and vocab and how to put together simple sentences. Well recommended. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars I agree - Not perfect but very good
This is a fun computer game.My 3 year old enjoys it, but finds it pretty easy.There are times in her week when such a game fits that bill.I will be buying more copies for gifts.The graphics are a little disappointing.

5-0 out of 5 stars Independent game
My youngest son is 3 and really enjoys computer games.I limit his time, especially since many that have entered our house don't seem to have many redeeming qualities or he can't do them himself.This is a game he can play by himself, which occaionally comes in handy, and I feel that it is not devoid of educational value.He also enjoys playing I Spy Treasure Hunt and Spooky Mansion with his 6 year old brother.

1-0 out of 5 stars Boring...
This was so heavily hyped, I had to have it for my five-year old twin girls.What a bore.They're either too old for it, or there is the outside chance that Scholastic really didn't put a lot of effort into this.It would bore a three-year old.Compare to Spooky Mansion or Treasure Island - can't compare with these gems.I'm 50 and play the latter two. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Tedious game-play with little emphasis on learning
The problem with this game starts with the introductury movie... it develops slowly, goes on forever, suffers from disconnected animation and does little to set up the ridiculous premise for game play.
2-0 out of 5 stars Really disappointed
I guess I'm spoiled by the I Spy games I've purchased for my children. This game has an enormous amount of "story"...it's almost as bad as sitting your child in front of the television. Interaction is confusing and frustrating. I'd rate this lower but it's clear that a lot of work went into the animation, which is top notch. I just wouldn't classify this as a learning game.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fun Game But Requres Good Hand Coordination
I purchased this game for my 3 year old who already reads a little and knows her numbers well. I hoped this game would help her learn addition. She loves to play it, but several of the games require hand coordination beyond her ability (the hand cart one in particular, as noted by another reviewer), and catching bubbles. It was frustrating to me because she knew the proper answer but could not "execute" because her movements were too slow. Over time, she has improved enough to play most of the games on level one. The game is very engaging ang the graphics well-done, but the educational part is under-emphasized. The game that "teaches" addition involves frogs jumping to lily-pads and my daughter is so focused on the frogs that the addition lesson is hardly noticed. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for schools and learning at home!
This game is excellent. I am a first grade teacher so was sceptical when I saw software claiming to teach the same subjects I cover in my classes through traditional means. I wanted to be open-minded so bought it and tried it with my students on our classroom's computer during the lunch hour. I must say i am dissappointed for having not tried this sooner.My students were glued to the screen the entire time and even after the lunch break they all wanted to continue playing.There are 16 activities covering reading, math, science and creativity and 3 diffifulty levels which allows the children to learn at their own pace and level. I especially like teachers mode which gives direct access to the activities and monitors the childrens progress. It also saves their games so other students can go on and play. The graphics are also astounding and I'm guessing this is what helps keep their attention so they end up playing longer and thus learning more. I would definitely recommend this to other teachers and parents who want to reinforce classroom materials at home. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Holds interest
This was great for my 3 1/2 yr old. He can explore all by himself. He loves that it's similar to big brother's I Spy games. Things make silly noises when he clicks them to add interest and entertain.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not compatible with my computer; a brand new Dell
This software will not work with my computer which has Windows XP Home on it.They provided two work-arounds, one didn't work and the other one was to start pulling RAM off of the computer.LUDICROUS!This product should not be marked as compatible with Windows XP.

4-0 out of 5 stars Gotta love I SPY!
We love all of the I Spy software and books.This one was not a disappointment.All of the I Spy games are simple for the very young child... So long as they can click the mouse, they can play the game.Clues are read to you so that reading is not necessary.This particular I Spy game is NOT as good as the others in the series, however it is a must have for any I Spy fan! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars I SPY
My children spent hours solving these brain building puzzles. There are 8 areas which are virtual theme parks. There are puzzles which they solve to finish the riddle. They search for objects in Nature, Wood block city, and Chalkboard....There is a crack code department. Balloon popper kept my 8 year old daughter busy and interested. Can even make your own I Spy picture riddles.Great Game. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Very good for building logic skills
    I tutor children for a living and I have found this software to be very good for building logic skills in children.It is stimulating to them and doesn't lose them by becoming difficult too quickly.This game is much better than it's math and reading counterparts.Although they are useful, they span too many levels at one time.I would say Thinking Adventures can be used as early as 3 years and still can remain challenging until 5 or 6 years of age.You can leave a child alone with this software for 2-10 minutes at a time (I would not recommend children playing on a computer for longer than this as they need physical stimulation), whereas most educational software for this age requires constant instruction from an adult.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Math Adventures is Great!
    I bought RR Math Adventures three years ago, and my son who is now almost 8 has used it off and on ever since. When he was younger I sat with him and explained some of the easier concepts, and little by little, he has finished the disk.I'm especially impressed by his understanding of fractions - which they haven't had in school yet, and currency - since we don't even live in the U.S. and he's never even seen U.S. money.Not to mention that English is a second language for him.I think that speaks very well of the teaching methods of this program. I've also run it on Win98 and XP with no problems. We've enjoyed this disk very much.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Says XP compatible - but not
    We got this game since our boy will be going to Kindergarten this fall. The description said it was XP compatible - but it won't even load.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A word to the wise
    I just wanted to make a couple of comments. Firstly, in the light of the first review, above -- we too thought that we had a defective copy because we couldn't get past the first stage and couldn't find all the objects. However, the key to success is that rather than "giving" the help-objects to Arthur to carry out tasks with, you have to "give" them to the thing you're trying to get. Once you've figured this out, it becomes much more straightforward to progress.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Am I missing Something?
    My boys (ages 5/6) could not get past level one on this game.Some of the items that needed to be found, never made their appearance. I even tried.Perhpas we got a bad copy.4-0 out of 5 stars Endless fun
    My six and nine year olds have a blast with this.At first they were a bit confused about what to do but once they figured it out they loved it.There are different scenarios, much like the Freddi Fish games so it is never boring. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars I Spy Spooky Mansion
    My kids (4 and 7 yrs old) love this game.The haunted house element of this game adds a nice twist that makes this game even more fun than the other I Spy games.These games also have some educational value and are fun to play with multiple players or with the entire family.Highly recommended.

    5-0 out of 5 stars FIX for running under Windows XP
    In reading the review from Angry Dad, I thought it best to give the "workaround" for the running of this game under Windows XP.
