Eh...

Why pay 20 bucks for a game?

What's it about?

Flying baby dragons and fanciful fairies await children in Dragon Tales: Learn & Fly with Dragons, featuring the stars of the Dragon Tales PBS preschool show. Cassie, the pink dragon, needs help teaching her younger siblings how to fly. Players join Cassie in taking her siblings on adventures during which they earn their Dragon Badges, a prerequisite to learning to fly.

To earn a Dragon Badge, each dragon needs to help two inhabitants of Dragon Land. When baby dragon Val stops to help Arlo put his prize-winning junk pile back in order, for example, the player learns spatial relationships by deciding whether to shrink or expand an item to make it fit in the hole in the pile. Other activities involve counting, memory games, logic, creativity, shape recognition, patterns, and following directions. After the dragons have earned their badges, they head to the Training Course to learn flying moves through more preschool learning.

Is it any good?

By the time the little dragons have learned to fly, kids will have played 11 math and logic activities, which automatically adjust in difficulty depending on the child's responses. This delightful software comes packaged with a free Dragon Tales book.
