Product description Review

Can you build it? Yes you can, with Bob Builds a Park from BBC Multimedia. Featuring Bob, Wendy and the rest of the gang, this CD-ROM will be a favourite with any Bob fan.

It is graphically superb (as you would expect from the BBC) and all characters are faithful to their on-screen counterparts. The games run smoothly without pixelation and the screens are easy to navigate. A full-colour instruction booklet is included, guiding players through installation and activity and providing helpful hints and tips. This should be read before commencing.

In the first activity, you help Bob build a park. First you build a pond, then a bandstand and then decorate the park with trees, flowers, bushes, picnic tables and other park essentials. You can view the park in "winter" or "summer" mode, then print it out once complete. Next, you help Bob fix the skateboard park for the hapless Spud, then score points as you help the scarecrow perform his skateboard stunts. In "Mr Ellis' Dinosaur Discovery", the park becomes Jurassic, as you help Mr Ellis piece together the dinosaur bones he has uncovered. Choose from a T-Rex, a Velociraptor or a Triceratops and print out an impression of what the dino would have looked like.

In "Farmer Pickles' Pets Corner", you help Farmer Pickles round up his farmyard strays and lead them back to their correct homes. Next, you help Lofty build a squirrel run, then progress to "Bob's Crazy Golf" and make Muck collect building materials, while avoiding the mischievous Spud! Once that's built, you help Bob find his first hole-in-one, before joining "Bob's Band". Once you've completed all the games, you can open the park in grand style with a fireworks display. But even fun must be earned-you must help Bob and the gang set it all up first!

As well as promoting basic PC and mouse skills, Bob Builds a Park will help youngsters to learn hand-to-eye coordination, colours, shapes, musical pitch, planning, animal and dinosaur names and anatomies. It will also develop creativity, spatial awareness, problem-solving and many, many other skills. Varying difficulty levels keep children interested and learning and, true to the Bob the Builder ethos, the package promotes team work, hard work and Bob's trademark "can-do" attitude. It's recommended for ages three and above: younger users will undoubtedly need supervision and help, particularly with set-up. Altogether, this is another great Bob the Builder package. --Susan Naylor

My kids love this cd rom; has various park activities that can return to time after time. Especially my 4 year old, but the seven year old also enjoys the challenges. The activities are all quite different and test different skills. When complete all the activities (which it auto remembers what each sign on has completed) then you are rewarded with a firework show. Great value disk.
