Tech with Kids (Computing with Kids) (Nov 18, 2002)
This software is outstanding because it allows children the freedom to explore complex ideas by using trial and error. To succeed at the puzzles, kids must form hypotheses and test them. They must collect data and analyze it. And all this higher-level thinking happens in the context of a fun adventure.

If you are new to the series, absolutely start with Zoombinis Logical Journey. It is the easiest to "get into" and master. If you've already played that game, then you will most definitely want more, and both Zoombinis Mountain Rescue and Zoombinis Island Odyssey will deliver just that.
Discovery Education (Nov, 2002)
This third title in the Zoombinis series plays a little differently than the previous titles, but it is an excellent, if challenging, exercise in logical thinking. With its science theme and compelling format, this program is recommended for both home and school use.

A great game that continues the tradition of excellence in children's software from TERC and The Learning Company. This game would have gotten a perfect score with more puzzles in the content and a more streamlined interface, but it's still nearly perfect.
Computer Active (Oct 30, 2003)
What we liked here was the mixture of good ideas and graphics, full of detail, with the slightly weird idea of blue blobs on wheels - the Zoombinis. Various challenges are presented and form part of a wider mission. All are tied in to make them relevant to both the game itself and real life situations.

Помощь твоя, о младый геймер, отнюдь не непосильной будет. Ты лишь блок свой логический активируй, да смотри на монитор внимательно. Тем паче, что картинка на мониторе дюже ясная, цветная, да красивая. А не веришь - глянь на скриншоты, познакомься с подшефным хозяйством. На сем прощаюсь я с тобой, да желаю с зумбини подружиться и блок свой логический не обесточивать боле.
