This is an awesome idea and when it works it works really well. Beware however. Despite it clearly saying it supports Macs, it is not very performant or stable. I have three Macs, all meet the minimum requirements but all take over 15 minutes to load the software and 50% of the time the software crashes. Not good. Also, no contact details exist for support.

A big hit with children form 3-9 (amazingly)! Lots of lift up flaps & snippets of info for the younger ones as well as detailed info. I just wish the magnifying glass was attached as it's now lost!
