Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Bert's Bag is an incredibly simple counting app featuring Bert from Sesame Street. In video segments, Bert brings out a paper bag, which the player then opens and empties. Inside may be anything from marbles to sea shells. And your child will be asked to count the objects. That's the entire game.
Is it any good?
The humor in BERT'S BAG comes out of the Bert character -- he's famous for being the boring muppet. His comically dull hobbies include collecting paper clips and counting pigeons. So having Bert's "video game" consist of nothing more than him opening a paper bag and counting whatever's inside is, in itself, kind of funny. But it's a joke that could wear thin quickly with preschoolers who are looking for a bit more in their virtual play time.
