Hey, hey, are you ready to play? It’s time to come and play with the Tweenies software. Jake, Milo, Bella and Fizz are all waiting to improve your little one’s writing, art, reading and listening skills, as well as develop early gaming talents.
Tick, Tock, Tweenie Clock, Where Will It Stop?
Immerse your youngster in the colourful and familiar Tweenies world, brilliantly represented in sound and graphics on your PC. Everyone will love “Messy Time”, with the three different print and play games, as well as instructions on how to make finger puppets, masks, badges and spinners. Then there’s “Doodles Mail”–write to the Tweenies via Doodles, receive a reply, and see little faces light up. Watch favourite characters during “Telly Time”, and join in the action songs in “Song Time”. “News Time” will test pre-school general knowledge and Tweenies trivia, while “Playtime” encourages early gaming skills with “Catch”, “Flying Rocket” (an arcade-style game) and “Snap”. Then, if you’re sitting comfortably, there’s the old faithful, “Story Time”.
Clear, colourful and easy to use, the Tweenies software will appeal greatly to children from the age of three, but there’s plenty to keep the five- and six-year-olds happy as well. Language development, numeracy, creativity, elementary computer skills and good old-fashioned fun are all encouraged, and the whole package is designed to support Key Stage 1 in English, Art, Maths and Information Technology. Whether you select your own activities, or let the Tweenie Clock pick at random, child appeal is absolutely guaranteed. Though simple in principle, all the games and learning activities have the repetitive quality toddlers love and thrive on. This is every bit as good as the TV show with one major advantage–it lasts much longer. —Lucie Naylor
