Clifford the Big Red Dog Thinking Adventures
Children direct this skill-building
journey through Clifford's neighborhood looking for ways to make his
birthday party BIG fun! Throughout the adventure, entertaining
activities encourage each child to use their thinking and reasoning
skills as well as their imagination. In addition, kids are presented
with challenges that require them to use their problem solving skills to
complete various steps. The celebration begins once children have
everything they need to throw a party BIG enough for Clifford!
That loveable dog returns once again in
Clifford the Big Red Dog Thinking Adventures that teams our favourite
canine with Emily Elizabeth who, with the assistant of the younger gamer
must solve a variety of puzzles and challenges such as a decorating a
cake or building a birthday dog collar.
The game itself is situated in a small town
that has the player exploring various places such as the crotchety home
of the Bleakmans to the town's soccer field. There are over 18 different
activities in this game that assist in children in the following skills:
Logica and reasoning
Colours and Shapes
Fine Motor Skills &
The installation Clifford the Big Red Dog
Thinking Adventures simply auto-installed once the computer detected the
CD and in under a few minutes, the software was ready to be tested. With
that said, the interface of Clifford is extremely easy to navigate and
features some wonderful graphics, music and sound effect.
Probably the two favourite games in this
edition of Clifford is the activity that helps with spatial reasoning
and when Clifford causes a traffic jam, children must assist Clifford in
navigating the cars out of this mess. Other activities such as shape
recognition assist Clifford with his diet by teaching children different
shapes through shape recognition.
Another interesting aspect of this series
is that there are various levels of difficulty, depending on your
child's age and they also have the option of saving the game in order to
come back later and play.
As previously mentioned, the graphics of
this title are extremely colourful and rather basic that is similar to
cartoon series. Match that with some great voice acting, music and sound
effects and this title has all the learning attributes needed to assist
children with their education.
In conclusion, Clifford the Big Red Dog
Thinking Adventures was judged another winner by our four-year old
and at an extremely affordable price. Great work from Scholastic!
