Product Description

While watering his garden in Wordville, Sam the Lion wishes for rain. Just then, something falls out of the sky and hits him on the head. Instead of raining raindrops, the sky is raining raingear! So Sam the Lion and Reader Rabbit climb into their fabulous Dreamship and soar up into the sky. They follow the path of falling raingear to Cloud Nine, where they meet Queen Cumulus, queen of the Cloud People. Queen Cumulus explains that a steady stream of raingear is being thrown onto Cloud Nine. The raingear has formed a pile so tall that it is starting to topple over-causing raingear to fall down onto Wordville. The queen thinks the raingear is coming from a funny island below Cloud Nine. So Reader Rabbit and Sam the Lion zoom to the island in the Dreamship to check it out. Reader Rabbit and Sam the Lion discover that the island is full of strange trees that grow raingear. The island is called Raingear Island, and it's the home of Irvin the Inventor. Irvin hates rain, so he invented a machine that throws raingear at the clouds to make them go away. But when Irvin hears how much trouble the raingear is causing, he agrees to turn off his machine. There's just one problem. To turn off his machine, Irvin needs three things-a big, round, purple hoop; a bag of extra-stretchy, jumbo rubber bands; and an extra-soft, double-stuffed feather pillow. But he doesn't have any of the three. Can you help Reader Rabbit and Sam the Lion explore Cloud Nine and Raingear Island in search of the things that Irvin needs? If you find the three items and bring them back to Irvin, he will turn off his machine and stop the avalanche of raingear. But don't delay-the pile of raingear is getting bigger by the minute. If you wait too long, it might topple over and bury Wordville!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun while they learn July 11, 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My son loves this game. He doesn't even realize he is learning while playing. Great math, art, vocab,reading lessons. However, if your child is sensitive to criticism or learns bad behavior easily then you may not like this game. I noticed that while my son was doing the counting money part the characters are very impatient, almost instantly after it asks him to pay for something and choose the right coins it starts saying things about getting tired of waiting, aren't you done already, etc. So I can see where it might discourage a child or they may learn the impatience and do it too. It does it in several different areas of the game. But overall it is a fun game and has lots of neat lessons to do. His favorite is making moving animations.

Purchased this game for my niece and she absolutely loves it! She is learning so much and having fun while doing it! She has moved way up in her class since she started playing. Even her teacher noticed a huge improvement. I highly recommend this game!!!

I'm definitely going to purchase Reader Rabbit 2nd grade next year for her!

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice, but not eough activities January 6, 2012

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This game has enough interaction for my almost 5 years old son. He spent a whole day (5 hours actually) with it and wanted to keep playing for a while.

Cons:
- After a while, there were no more things to do, so once he dominated the activities, there was little for him to do, so the game fun lasted a week.

- The software engineering of the software is rather poor, at least under Wii. Characters are nice, but the loading time for the animations is long (sometimes 4 or 5 seconds), so the kinds don't know if they are doing things right.

Overall, I believe this game has 7/10. Triple the activities, like a standard game, would have been so much better. A better response time would also help for the children to really enjoy it.

Very interesting game. Strongly recommend to everyone who is looking for a game for 3-6 year old child. Simple, easy to navigate and understand. More like an interactive cartoon. I am going to buy more games from this "rabbit' series.

5.0 out of 5 stars We love Reader Rabbit September 3, 2012

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
We bought this for our then 5 year old. He is 6 now and in 1st grade. He loves the wii but we didn't have many games for him, so I thought this would be perfect! He loves it, and is learning so much on it. It is simple and easy to understand and he plays it himself without adult help. We have never had a problem with RR (Reader Rabbit) items. They are always educational, clean, age appropriate, and FUN!!! Sometimes I wonder if our son actually know he is learning while playing.

4.0 out of 5 stars good game for kids to learn and have fun November 29, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a good game. There are many different things kids need to do, math, spelling, color codes, sentence pattern, ect. It makes it fun because the kids have to search for different things like a pillow or rubber bands to bring back to the prof. While searching for these things the kids must complete either math or spelling, ect. The only thing I did not like about this game is that once you find all the things the prof has asked you to you have completed the game. You can still play but you are not searching for anything unless you delete your profile and start all over, which to kids is frusterating they dont want to lose what they have done just to start again. Other then that the game is a good teaching game with lots of things to choose from. (It has 3 auto difficulty levels or you can put on manual.)

Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this for my son who was going in to first grade. It is a pretty boring, repetitive game so he lost interest very quickly.

4.0 out of 5 stars My grandson loves this game April 5, 2013
Verified Purchase
My grandson is in first grade and is interested in video games but has difficulty with the controller. He is also reluctant to engage in reading activities. With this game the controller is used in the standard button only moves (no tilt action required) and the reading is engaging so he loves playing! His younger sister is also enjoying the game.

2.0 out of 5 stars 4 year old never plays it
There are some good tools to learn reading, but getting there is pretty boring. Kid lost interest pretty quick. No real flow to where to go next.
