Product Description

Review

This is a poorly designed fairy tale-based adventure in which kids follow a version of the classic story of Sleeping Beauty, in this case with Barbie as the star. They discover games as they progress through the story in a sequential fashion, or they can freely explore, encountering activities in no particular order. In either case, children move about the castle, seeking out magic to help Sleeping Beauty while playing ten activities. In one game, kids can decorate a crown. In another, they choose a dress color for Sleeping Beauty.

Unfortunately, technical difficulties mar the experience. Long transitions between screens, lost clicks and an unresponsive interface are among the programs greatest weaknesses.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fairytale Princess conquers all... 12 Feb. 2001
By Alison
Format:CD-ROM
Klara, my 4 year old has been playing this for a year now, and she is still enjoying it.
To begin with, she followed the story option, playing each scene of the story in order and enjoying the different games (none are very demanding). She now knows where her favourite rooms are and heads straight for those, using the 'scenes' option.
The games cover a good varied range:
- an art program using stamps and stickers to design a tiara for you to print, cut out and wear! (colours and size can be changed also)
- a 'zapping' type game, unusual in a girls' game but good for mouse control skills and much loved - (Deflect the wicked fairy's bad spells!)
- hide and seek with the fairies, choosing a dress for the party, a maze to challenge your spatial awareness & sequencing skills, opening presents ( the easiest part)
- a challenging music game where Rose has to copy the tune played by her magic flute in order to wake up the animals.
Some educational, some just for fun - all highly enjoyable. I removed one star for the voice of Prince Ken - a ham actor if I ever heard one!
