problem solving software
Determined to collect the cookie box tops needed to send away for a Pajama Man action figure, Pajama Sam plows his way through box after box of chocolate chip cookies, and ends up gorged and queasy when Mom calls him for dinner. Imagination on fire, he surmises that it's the Cookie Gang that has caused his discomfort and vows to stop their evil deeds. His chase to confront them leads him to MopTop Island, where the junk food is trying to overthrow the healthy food. An emergency peace conference has been called, but only two delegates are present. Pajama Sam must find the missing delegates (representatives from four of the food groups), and help them get to the conference so that war can be averted and peace restored.
To succeed in their quest, users need good spatial awareness and mapping skills. They travel throughout MopTop Island, retracing movements as they discover pieces of the puzzle that were previously missed. Problem solving skills are required to decipher clues and decide what action to take to proceed. In addition, users learn about conflict resolution, sequencing, compromise, empathy, healthy eating and table manners in their attempt to bring the food groups together in a spirit of cooperation and unity.
