Playroom, The box cover

Playroom, The screenshot
The Playroom is designed to encourage children's curiosity and then reward it with new discoveries. All the scenes take place in a child's bedroom where the child clicks on a variety of different pictures that lead into an activity or animates the picture. For example, if you click on the computer, it'll show a big screen with all the letter keys. If you hit a letter, the computer will show the child the lower- and upper-case letter so they can learn to connect them. The pictures are all colorful and clear. The sound is optional. There is a light, happy, repetitive melody that kids can hum to as they are working with the program. The two hosts, Ginger and Pepper also speak along with many of the animals. The program allows for printing the ABC book and the mixed-up toy scene. If the child gets confused, there is online help throughout the whole program. All-in-all, a great app for pre-schoolers everywhere!
