Little Bill Thinks Big



Little Bill makes his software debut in Little Bill Thinks Big, a CD-ROM that stays true to the TV show’s values of teaching young children about the importance of family, building self esteem, and learning to solve problems.
Players have four play dates with Little Bill at his house during the different seasons of the year. In each season, players help Bill solve a problem by creating a seasonal surprise. To make each seasonal surprise, the player must find five objects that are hidden inside five games.
In the games, kids sort aliens, arrange photos to create a story, match colors and shapes to create a hamster tunnel, count treasure coins in an underwater side-scrolling game, and decorate cookies by matching geometric shapes.
Little Bill is a great role model for children because he is funny, creative, and thoughtful. He cares for his family by doing things to help them.
While there are only five games in this software (there are some extra mini-games), kids revisit them in four different seasonal contexts. They also follow verbal directions to put together the seasonal surprises and have opportunities to create art. The games adjust up or down in difficulty, depending on how the player is doing.

This software is most appropriate for children ages 3-5 because its games are simple; and they don’t let youngsters fail.

All tech products are judged on a five star scale by looking at the following factors: fun, education, ease of use, value, and technical.
