Our review:

Kids say (6):

We tested this software on both the VSmile TV System and the handheld VSmile Pocket and did notice that a few of the graphics were hard to distinguish when playing on the smaller handheld version. As a result, players were sometimes unable to accomplish the game's educational objective. Overall, though, kids will enjoy diving into the large number of varied activities in SpongeBob's world -- and they'll learn something, too.
