Apple Games Features Playhouse Disney Preschool Time Online
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Apple Games' most recent feature showcases Playhouse Disney Preschool Time Online. The learning adventures provided by the game reinforce a variety of skills for young children using characters and locations from Playhouse Disney television programs. The article offers an overview of the software and a quick description of the various Playhouse Disney television shows.

Bear, of “Bear in the Big Blue House” fame, hosts the proceedings, speaking directly to your children in the same soft manner he does on TV. He greets your children and introduces the letter and number of the day, which must be found in a bureau. He also explains what’s special about today, such as: “It’s wear green day. Do you have anything green you can wear?”

Then Bear kicks off that week’s theme and sends your children to the main screen, where they engage in educational activities and games. Your children move through the learning adventure in a specific order; you can also change the setting to Discovery mode and allow a freeform approach.

At any time, your children can click on the Backyard icon and head there, where more Playhouse Disney characters populate activities involving art, music, reading, and other skills. (You can also access the previous two learning adventure themes there, in case your children were away from the computer for a while.) For example, they can click on a book featuring Winnie the Pooh and hear it read aloud, or create a unique work of art that uses musical instruments to dictate the style of brush stroke on the “canvas.”
