Winnie the Pooh is a much beloved character who has appeared on television and in movies for over 30 years when this game was released, and in books for far longer than that. It is not surprising that Disney Interactive chose to bring one of Pooh's adventures to the computer screen as an interactive story.
Players can enjoy this game in English or Spanish. One of the most enchanting things about the Spanish translation is that Pooh becomes "Winie Pu," though the character voices and essential story remain the same. In a way this can help players become bilingual, as after a few repetitions in each story, you can tell which words and phrases are the same or similar. While this may not be one of the intentional effects of the game, it is an added bonus.
Other nice features of the game are the two ways to hear the story. In the "Read" section, players are taken through the story without stopping, while in the "Play" section they can explore the items on the screen using the mouse, uncovering hidden animations and mini-games skillfully blended into the story.
This is an excellent animated book that kids will thoroughly enjoy. Best of all, they can play it whenever they wish instead of demanding that their parents read it to them over and over. With all the things to see and do, players will probably spend many hours with this game before they grow tired of it.
Graphics: Nice graphics that are very well animated.
Sound: Not too loud and the character voices sound just like those on TV or in movies.
Enjoyment: Kids will really enjoy this story.
Replay Value: You can hear this over and over without growing tired of it.

Winnie the Pooh is a funny bear. He lives in the Hundred Acre Woods behind the house of Christopher Robin, along with his friends Rabbit, Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, Owl, and Tigger. Like most bears, Pooh likes honey. In fact, it's his favorite thing to eat. So, when Pooh wakes up one morning only to discover that all his honey jars are empty, it's up to him to find more for breakfast. Unfortunately for Pooh, his love for the sweet sticky stuff gets him in more trouble than he'd bargained for. After being foiled at the bee tree, Pooh eats all of Rabbit's honey and gets stuck in Rabbit's door. Though his friends try pushing and pulling, he's stuck. All they can do is wait for him to lose weight. Each word is pronounced and highlighted to build word recognition and early reading skills. Four fun games give children an introduction to beginning learning skills. Five cherry sing-along songs include the beloved theme song "Winnie the Pooh".
