the imaginative animal-loving animated boy who stars in the
Playhouse Disney television series, is getting ready for a shark
project for school. Before his friend, Lester, comes over, Stanley
must find his missing shark tooth and animal cards. He also needs
to put his shark model back together again. This CD-ROM allows
kids to direct Stanley through a fun-filled facts-packed
adventure. It's bright, cheerful, and wildly responsible. Fans and
their parents will love it.
Dennis is Stanley's faithful companion. That he is a goldfish
doesn't mean he's not a big help. In fact, he is a brainy little
fellow. Dennis offers tons of facts about animals throughout the
adventure. Besides that, every now and again he reminds the very
imaginative Stanley of reality. Stanley easily sees a turtle's
back in a mere wastepaper basket, for instance. His flights of
fancy are fun for kids to watch!
What we have here is a very imaginative and original game. Not
only are there fun arcade-style games to play, the program is
loaded with creative "clickables" that teach early
learning concepts (such as under/over, time of day, and so forth)
and animal facts. Little pop-up quizzes often result after
multiple clicks on a hotspot. These are innovative as well!
Clicking a picture on the wall prompts the pelican to make a
happy, then angry, then goofy face just for fun; the bathroom
tiles are musical; and a can on the ground goes into the recycling
bin. When kids click on a skateboard that is left (quite
dangerously) at the bottom of the stairs, they are reminded of the
safety hazard and Stanley quickly picks it up and out of the way.
A parade of letters in alphabetic order emerges from the closet in
the hall too.
This is a fun and creative game that kids will love. They'll
learn all sorts of animal tidbits, reinforce a few early learning
concepts, and enjoy a few manageable games at the same time.
