As with all the Scholastic children range software, the installation was a breeze on our test machine that simple auto-installed once the CD was detected by the computer which is great for parents who are somewhat computer illiterate. The beauty of many Scholastic titles is that the programs generally need a minimalist computer setup and with this incarnation of Clifford the Big Red Dog, it once again follows the basic attributes of Windows 95 as a bare minimum.

Once again our software was tested with our 4-year old volunteer Ella who simply could not get enough of this education software package. Although Ella is familiar with other Scholastic software, she picked up the controls and interface of this incarnation in just one sitting that had her learning, singing and even dancing. Needless to say, many many hours of enjoyment.

The activities in the game are extremely varied that ensure children will not lose interest in this title and games from assisting Clifford to escape his way out of the cave through mathematics or matching up sounds, this program is definitely a must have for those parents that wish to give their children that pre-school edge.

Game Highlights

  • Counting, Addition & Subtraction
    Clifford needs your help to find his way out of the caves. Listen to the number of animal sounds in each cave to choose the right path.

  • Matching Sounds
    Emily Elizabeth loves collecting shells on the beach. Sort them by matching shells that make the same sound.

  • Listening & Memory
    The birds will teach you the dolphins' favorite song. Play the song back correctly to watch the dolphins flip!

  • Creativity
    Once you make an instrument, use it to create your own music in any style you choose - Rock, Caribbean, Country, Jazz, or Salsa.

  • Following Directions
    A storm has blown over the radio tower and Clifford, Cleo, and T-Bone need your help to bring music back to Birdwell Island!

  • Problem Solving
    Explore Birdwell Island for fun objects that can be used to make instruments. After you put together five instruments, create music with Clifford's band.

  • Rhythm & Creativity
    Practice rhythm with Cleo and T-bone at the bakery. Get ready for a delicious reward when you are finished.

  • Logic & Reasoning
    Samuel and Charley miss the music on their radio. Play the right song for them, then take a ride on their boat to explore the other side of Birdwell Island.

  • Pattern Recognition
    Clifford, Cleo, and T-Bone want to learn how to dance like Mac. Arrange Mac's steps in right order and he will show you his best moves.

Graphically, Clifford Musical Memory Games is extremely colourful and once again looks like a Saturday morning cartoon that is filled with simple yet colourful shapes and happy characters. The sound of the title has been professional designed with speech that is clear and fluent for those early learners.

In conclusion, Clifford the Big Red Dog Musical Memory Games is a great program that contains a variety of activities and challenges to assist with your child's learning and match that with an easy to use interface, a colourful and musical world and skills ranging from memory to rhythm, this program is a must have.
