While all five activities are fun, the Garden station stands out. After hearing verbal clues from Miss Marigold, preschoolers hunt for certain animals, plants, and rocks by scrolling through the lush garden with their cursor.

This software is a good introduction to activities children discover in preschool. As in her television show, Blue and her friends create a cozy world of learning and fun. While there are only five activities, they come in three levels of difficulty so children can grow with the activities. A special "Parents Area" has some wonderful ideas of how to extend the computer activities beyond the computer.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
