This likeable program offers a world of exciting new sights and sounds to babies and young toddlers. Reader Rabbit’s favorite sidekick Mat the Mouse leads baby through a series of experiences designed to stimulate and entertain. Whether it’s watching animals pop out of their barnyard hiding places, sharing Mat’s many moods as they are mirrored on her expressive face, or joining Mat in a chorus of her favorite songs, the activities included are guaranteed to please.
Although parents are encouraged to experience this program with their babies, there is no actual computer skill needed to benefit from its many activities. Striking a key, or moving the mouse initiates a response. Among the rich learning environments included are: a storybook activity with four simple stories that include special story-related sound buttons, a virtual kaleidoscope with stupendous, changeable colors and patterns, a body-awareness activity with Mat, a musical drawers section with instruments and kitchen objects to shake and tickle and pound with cacophonous effect, and more.
A second CD included with the program features peppy “favorite” songs with Reader Rabbit and the gang, and can be played on an audio CD player.
PC: Windows 95 or higher, Pentium 75 or faster cpu, 20 MB free hard drive space, 16 MB RAM, 256 color SVGA display, Double-speed or faster CD-ROM (Quad-speed recommended), Windows-compatible sound card.return to top of page
