Fun Around the House
There’s nothing fun about Fun Around the House (Queue – ages 4-8). Take a 1950’s nuclear family – Mom, Dad, Jimmy, and Sally (really!), and the required pets – and plop them down in a suburban home. You can explore their house, click on objects like the telephone to hear “telephone,” find objects in the rooms, play a mindless matching game, or go to the coloring book where you get a piece of chalk and a limited palette to color on-screen pictures of the family at work and play. On top of all of this, it runs at a snail’s pace. You’ll want to pass on this one.
