Caillou Preschool - Alphabet, Colors, & Shapes Review
Review by Dylan
Preschool Aged Learning Activities
Caillou's Preschool might be the perfect game for young children developing both verbal and cognitive skills. This game which is divided into three parts is a learning game that truly seems to care about improving the mind of a child. In it your child helps Caillou pick vegetables in a letter recognition game and guides him through a maze by identifying different shapes and colors. This game is highly focused on learning, yet presents the material in a fun manner. It's simply perfect for your developing child.
Game Modes For Alphabet, Colors, Shapes and More
As you begin to play, once your language has been accepted, you come to another set of choices. There are three modes for you to play, each focusing on a different subject. The first choice is Alphabet. If you decide to play this game your child can play up to 26 different letter games, one for each letter in the alphabet. You can collect apples for the letter A, or find the letter Y in the yo-yo themed Y game. These games are specific to the letters they represent and help build hand-eye coordination (your child must navigate the mouse) and letter recognition skills. The instructions in these games, as well as in all the games are clearly spoken and explained. Also, if you need help figuring anything out, it is easily accessible.
The next of the modes is Colors and Shapes. In this mode you again have the option to play various mini-games. There are 24 in total and the central theme around these games is color and shape recognition. You might need to clear all the green leaves to reveal a surprise picture or you could clear the blue paint drops to help Caillou through the maze of color. The games are very comparable in gameplay as to those of the Alphabet category, however, they are more focused on colors and shapes.
The third and final mode of play is a coloring book. This helps build your child's creativity. In it you can “color” (filling the picture with color through mouse clicking) 11 different pictures. Some of the pictures are of Caillou, while others are toys or trucks. The pictures and coloring is simple, but it is a great addition to developing the creativity of your child.
Some Games Very Similar
As far as drawbacks are concerned this game has one potential problem. The objectives vary little and the gameplay is essentially the same. You might collect Vs instead of the letter A, however, the gameplay is nearly identical. This would pose a big problem for older players, but younger kids in or around preschool, might not find this to be a problem.
Conclusion - Good Option For Preschool Aged Kids
Overall, Caillou's Preschool is a fantastic educational game designed for younger preschool aged kids. The skills your child will pick up are important and numerous. Also, the ability to play in a different language makes this game a great second language tool as well.
