Winnie The Pooh And The Blustery Day Activity Center is a PC game from 2000.

Description

Winnie the Pooh's Activity Center is a wonderful way to entertain your child on a rainy day; with six different activities at three different difficulty levels, kids of all ages can enjoy time spent inside. Also included is the animated storybook Winnie the Pooh's Animated Storybook: Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too, which offers more fun games and reading activities.

In the Winnie the Pooh's Activity Center, a friendly narrator greets you on "a blustery day." He presents activities such as Eeyore's house hunt--help Owl to find a new home; Heffalumps and Woozles--match the characters in Pooh's dreams; and Fly a Piglet--prevent Pooh and Piglet from running into trees and stumps. You may also choose to read the interactive book of Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day, which introduces different activities as you read the story along with the characters.

The gamelike portion is similar to the interactive book, but with better directions. Follow the story and play with Roo, Tigger, and other favorite characters. With each story, the highlighted words (reminiscent of follow the bouncing ball) encourages your child to read aloud and recognize words as they do.

The activities are amusing and, with the different levels of difficulty, mean the software's appeal will last longer than just one rainy day. Your child will enjoy the friendly characters, and you'll find that the activities serve not only to entertain but also encourage reading, matching, hand-eye coordination, and imagination.

An animated storybook and activity center in one, this program offers children lots to do. The e-book tells the story of Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day. Text is highlighted as it is read aloud, and numerous clickables are found on each page. Children can also choose from five activities. There's a very responsive obstacle course challenge, for instance, where kids help Pooh and Piglet "fly" through the air on a kite. There's also a fun Heffalumps and Woozles activity that requires children to pay close attention to detail as they build matching creatures. Two logic games and a room decorating activity round out the package. Testers voiced just a few complaints. Some grew impatient with the non-interruptible animations, and others reported that the pages of the story seem out of order. Several families struggled when initially trying to figure out what to do. Overall, though, this is a decent program- nothing too revolutionary, but good for rainy day activity. Teaches: reasoning, creativity
