With literally hundreds of ''click-points,'' these delightful diversions will keep kids busy for hours-and maybe teach them something (how to bake a cake, how to earn money by mowing lawns) between giggles.

In my humble opinion, you can't go wrong with either series for kids between 3 and 8.
WindowsAll Game Guide (1998)
This is a fun game, but younger players will find it extremely challenging and may need an adult's help to complete it.
Fatty Bear ist ein sehr lustiges, buntes Programm, glänzt durch ein fache Mausbedienung und wunderbare Sprachausgabe (alle Texte können auch in geschriebener Form zugeschaltet werden). Das Spiel wäre also genau richtig für kleinere Kinder - wenn die in diesen Gefilden Englisch könnten! So wird auch dieser knuddelige Bär im deutschsprachigen Raum wohl kaum eine Platz im Kinderzimmer erobern können. Schade! Aber glücklicherweise soll es laut Electronic Arts das letzte Kinderprogramm sein, das ohne Übersetzung zu uns kommt.
This is a lot like the Putt-Putt games in that they are definitely geared for the younger players. Fatty Bear's is more of the same - learning and making cutesy things. If it is a toss-up, though, go with Putt-Putt.
All this freedom makes Fatty Bear a wonderful introduction to the computer for beginning users and a delightful game for more experienced youngsters. There's enough educational content to earn a teacher's recommendation. And plenty of adventure and fun to earn enthusiastic reviews from parent and their kids.
