Hans Christian Anderson’s Thumbelina
Hans Christian Anderson’s Thumbelina (Time Warner Interactive) suceeds as an interactive disc while retaining the charm of the Don Bluth film. It’s so simple that kids are comfortable with it in no time. It doesn’t try to do too much. It tells the story, has a nice read-along feature, and offers lovely illustrations and animations, a sing-along section, and enough games and puzzles to amuse. The coloring book has great appeal; after the kids add their colors, the animation comes to life. The cover says “Ideal for ages 3-8”, and that’s right on the money.
