Second in Sierra's short-lived series of edutainment games based on Disney's cartoon characters, Winnie the Pooh in the Hundred Acres Wood is a fun adventure for kids that allows them to interact with their favorite characters while honing reading and logic skills. Even the premise is original: the blustering wind has blown objects out of houses in the Hundred Acres Wood, scattering them all over the forest. As none other than amicable teddy 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 unconfident, to Rabbit the sprightly, and Owl the wise who will give helpful clues if you ask him about the object you are carrying. Knowledge of the Pooh books is helpful, since you will likely know right away which objects belong to which character when you see them, but it is not necessary since the clues are plentiful.

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