After an introduction to the story, you journey through Oz collecting jewels in order to rescue Dorothy. The graphics are stunning and there are many choices of route so that you are constantly dicovering new things to do and see. The challenges to collect the jewels are really imaginative - my children love to do them over and over again. The principles of the journey and the games are simple enough for children to grasp but executed so wonderfully that they are not repetitive or slow. One example is helping a lady to get back her memory by making a special fruit cocktail drink for her. First you have to catch the fruit, then measure out the correct combination and then mix it together. After drinking 3 drafts of this enlightening potion she then reveals where the jewel is. Those people expecting the game to be true to the original story will be disappointed - there is no yellow-brick road - but this new triumph of originality will not disappoint. I would recommend, whole- heartedly, this cd rom - it is one of the very best that we own (other popular titles that my children aged 4 and 2 play over and over again include 101 Dalmations Storybook and Pocahontas Storybook).

I can't think of a single criticism of this superb piece of software. Imaginative and challenging games that can operate at different levels, backed up by superb Toy Story-style graphics and an excellent soundtrack.
My daughter (aged 4) started at bronze level, then silver, and is now at gold, but needs a little help. She loves the idea of collecting jewels in order to rescue Dorothy from the wicked witch. All nine games are different and interesting, supplemented by extra little challenges as you navigate around the landscape. A wonderful buy, highly recommended.

This doesn't work properly on a modern lap top or computer. I suspect it's due to how old it is and I would strongly recommend an up to date product for learning. For example, the flower garden activity just doesn't function and it definitely isn't my computer. It is a disappointment as I'm sure if it worked it would be a good product. Save your money and purchase world explorer which is fantastic. I wouldn't even give it 1 star.
