Barney's Fun On Imagination Island is an educational title aimed at pre-school children aged two and upwards. It was compatible with the Barney ActiMate toy via a device known as a PC Pack, for example covering the toy's eyes caused both the toy and the in-game character to play peek-a-boo while squeezing the toy's middle toe caused both Barney's to sing a song related to the current game. The game has keyboard shortcuts that perform the same functions for those who do not have an ActiMate.
There are six activities in this game:
Baby Bop's Buccaneer Bay is a game that teaches shapes.
BJ's Treasure Cove teaches colours.
Hootin' Annie's Musical Woods where children identify animals and the sounds they make.
Lucy's Letter Lagoon teaches letters.
Professor Tinkerputt's Tree House teaches counting and simple maths.
Video Volcano shows video clips from the TV series Barney & Friends.
