This is a great game for kids to learn and explore. Where else could you play with things like actual hearts, tuning forks, dogs, logic gates and number switches? Many of the parts in the tool trays are changeable. The heart, for example, can be a human heart, rabbit heart, elephant heart, tortoise heart, cat heart or gerbil heart. It is like letting kids loose to play in a place that combines daddy's toolbox, a science museum and a math-oriented classroom. More than that, the experiments are fun. The parts move and change in amusing ways that will keep kids entertained as they learn. I wish they had had this program when I was a kid! And more puzzles are promised in the future, if your child runs out.

Overall, this is a very good educational program. It is one someone can have fun with and learn at the same time. It is rated by Maxis for ages 8 and above. I feel that is a little too young. Some of the concepts I had trouble remembering (boolean algebra, and/or gates, etc.) I feel are a little too much for the average child to comprehend at that age. There is also a heavy emphasis on following the book to gain the initial concepts. For a product that is released on a CD Rom, I think a more intuitive on-line tutorial would be more appropriate. As far as the game itself, I again expected more from a CD Rom product. Some background music, and voices throughout the game would greatly improve the multimedia look and feel of the program.
