More Shapes This is the first puzzle and it looks fairly easy There are two wheels to position but they occupy the same space on screen
More Shapes The later puzzles in this series are more complex. When completed the butterfly flaps its wings
Sounds Each coloured button plays a sound effect. The player drags the sound effect button to the 'hole' beneath the farmyard animal.
Pairs This starts with the relatively easy task of matching paint brushes to paint pots
Pairs Later puzzles in the series become more difficult. Egg could match to spoon or frying pan Toboggan matches to snowman but would a young child know this?

Morte Games Catch the thief is a variant of 'Whac-a-mole'. When the thief appears the player clicks on him and a police van turns up to tae him away
More Games The telephone game. The player is shown a number and which they enter via the telephone keypad. When I played it I got put on hold so it's good practice for later life

More Games This is a variant of Connect Four
More Games "Arranging the Doughnuts" is a puzzle in the same style as 'Towers of Hanoi'
