5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE it! January 17, 2004
By A Customer
This is the best of the games I've recently purchased for my 4 year old. It's an adventure game in which the player must search various locations for specific items, people or tasks. Within most locations, there are little games the child must play to find the item in question.
The thing I really like about this game compared to some others: There are only a handful of locations and there is a map the child can access at any time to jump to the desired location. This makes game play soooooo much faster. As soon as I got the package open, my son took off with it and required no intervention from me to complete the game. He really enjoys playing it even now that he knows all of the "answers".

5.0 out of 5 stars Clifford entertains! December 18, 2003
My 4 & 5 year old daughters have been playing this one for a year now. It has never hit the bottom of the CD game pile! It is fun, while it teaches - which is the best part! You search for 4 jewels while you try to get things done for Clifford's party. There are games along the way as well as thinking adventures. One game involves sorting grocery items into their correct places on the shelves - which helps teach counting and spatial skills. There are plenty of activities to keep your child busy, and teach them something too! I highly recommend this one! Who doesn't love Clifford! "Woof!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Watch your child learn December 1, 2003
By A Customer
Our son started playing this game when he was three and loved every minute of it. The game "teaches" logic and computer skills in the context of a story rather than with the curriculum of games like Reader Rabbit and Jump Start (nothing against those products, this is just different). Even though he has finished the game many times and understands the order in which you need to do things, our son likes to play the game over and over. I particularly liked a sorting game that requires the child to clean up the grocery shelves and put matching items on the shelf that has the correct number of spaces. We have given this game as a gift and would do so again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Play, play, and play again December 17, 2003
By Toes
My three year old daughter loves to play this game over and over again. She plays by herself now, only needing help the first couple of times she played. It has a lot of activities to keep her busy and she has a blast playing. It's definitely one of the best computer games she has.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excelent Game! Keeps kids interested for a long time. September 27, 2005
I bought this game for my friend's three-year-old daughter. I wasn't sure if she would be interested or even able to play the game, having no previous computer skills. She is of slightly above average intelligence for a three year old, but had absolutely no mouse skills whatsoever.

I had to test out the game for myself when it came in. It only took me about 1/2 hour to finish it myself (on the easy level), but it was fun. So, I took it over to my friends house and installed it on their computer (old Windows 98 PC). It ran really well on their old computer.

I sat the three-year-old down and the computer and she began to play. In the beginning, I had to set everything up for her. She couldn't run the game on her own, or get it set up for her-self. Also, she needed a lot of help with the mouse in the beginning. She seemed to like the game a lot though. The only problem was that she couldn't play on her own. A few weeks went by and every time I came over, she wanted me to play the game with her. Her mother won't play video games with her. It eventually got to the point where she wanted to play every day. So I showed her how to get into the game all by herself and type in her name and choose the difficulty level.

It's been about a month now since she first played the game and she is completely independent. As long as the computer is on, she can open the game for herself, set it up, and play it without any adult interaction. She knows how to print, how to exit the game, and can complete almost any of part of the game on her own (the swimming part is still hard for her). I think that she likes this game even more every time that she plays it. In addition to keeping her interest in the game, she is learning a lot too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Autistic Kid Loves It October 14, 2004
Verified Purchase
My daughter, who is 7 years old and has high-functioning autism, really loves this game. She's had it running on our computer every day, for hours, since we got it for her a week ago.

She is afraid of real dogs in real life, but for some reason she really loves playing with Clifford in this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for hours and hours November 19, 2003
By Nora
This is a little-kid adventure game which is similar in nature to big-people adventure games like Myst, but obviously much more simplified.
My 3 year old daughter loves this game. She needed some help when she first started playing, but now she can go to the computer, start the program, and play all by herself. She has solved the adventure many times and she still has fun with it. We have gotten many hours of enjoyment out of this game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Helps plan Cliffords Birthday Party April 22, 2011
Verified Purchase
My 4&5 year old grand-daughters loved this one. I played it myself first so I could show them how it worked when they came over. I had problems in a few areas, but those youngsters are so bright nowadays, they knew exactly how to play the game by hit and miss mouse movements. They picked it up very quickly. Same holds true for the other Clifford CD-ROM "Learning Activities" Ages 4-6 CD-ROM I purchased for them.
