This simple, preschool program features six activities that introduce basic school skills to young learners. Kids are joined by friendly jack-in-the-box host, Zack, who presents the activities and encourages kids to participate. He also acquaints users with Twinkle, a friendly star who performs a brief dance of sorts when its five points are lit by five correctly completed activity trials.
An included parents section provides insight into the learning experiences taking place in each activity, and encourages parents to enjoy the program with their children. Additional, away-from-the-computer worksheets are also available in this section.
In the course of our testing, we found that those preschoolers who are used to high energy, action-packed television shows and software programs quickly lost interest in this program. This dilemma was moderately mitigated, however, when users were joined by their parents or caregivers.
