Second in Sierra's short-lived series of edutainment games based on Disney's cartoon characters, Winnie The Pooh in Hundred Acres Wood is a fun adventure for kids that allow them to interact with their favorite Pooh characters while sharpening reading and logic skills. Even the premise is original: the blustery wind has blown objects out of houses in the Hundred Acres Wood, scattering them all over the forest. As none other than helpful bear Winnie the Pooh, you must locate the objects and return them to their rightful owners.

Gameplay in Winnie the Pooh is simple to understand, yet effective: every screen presents one or more choices for actions that are specific to that screen (e.g. "Climb up the tree"). There is also a row of verbs along the bottom of the screen for general actions, such as Drop the item you are carrying, and go North, South, etc. All the characters kids have come to love are here, from Eeyore the inconfident, to Rabbit the active and Owl the wise who will give helpful clues if you ask him about the object you are carrying. Experience with Pooh books is helpful, since you will likely know right away which objects belong to which person when you see them, but it is not necessary because the characters give plenty of clues about what they lost.

With attractive graphics (for its time, of course), good story, solid writing, and great depiction of Pooh's world, Winnie The Pooh will keep your childs entertained for hours on end. Highly recommended, especially for kids ages 4 - 8.
