Good grief! Linus's security blanket has come up missing, and it's up to players and the Peanuts gang to track it down. Team up with Charlie Brown or Lucy as Snoopy guides kids through the game. Along the way, there are nine hidden games to play at a computer camp or in the school library, or you can catch the magic show of the Great Houndini, who looks an awful lot like Snoopy. The Snoopy meter offers players an added challenge, and kids can print out scenes for coloring fun away from the computer. Designed to delight children of all ages, this unique play story presents lessons with humor and heart. Kids build social and orientation skills, explore math and music, develop their problem-solving and critical-thinking abilities, and more. Educational concepts introduced directly into the story line keep the learning fun, while the artwork remains true to Charles M. Schulz, "Peanuts" creator.

    My son is almost a year old and I bought this software on a whim, to see if I can figure out a kid’s game in my old age. Granted he doesn’t know what a computer even is yet, but I bought the game (cheaper at Target, BTW) and I plan to give it to him in a few years when he’s ready for stuff like this.I’m not sure about the 4+ age minimum. I took the easy route in this game to see and it seems a lot of things might stump the wee ones. At least they stumped this old mold bag. Maybe kids are smarter at that age today, but it seems to me like some of the puzzles may get frustrating after several attempts. I would put this more in the age range of 6 to 8 for beginners.Other than that, the game is a blast! Chasing Snoopy down the grocery aisle was the best part.I wouldn’t worry too much about the language issues raised by others here. ‘Peanuts’ has always been self-depreciating to a point – one has to consider that while the characters in the game do tend to belittle _themselves_ they never call the player “stupid” or “dumb”. In fact I found the characters to be very encouraging to the player when a puzzle failed, and downright flattering when the puzzle was completed. I don’t see many kids crying at the game because of something Lucy or Charlie Brown said. In fact, I don’t see them crying at this game much at all, unless they’re too young.

  2. I bought this game when my son was 4, because he had mastered most of the preschool games but wasn’t ready for games that required reading, math, or quick fingers. I thought it would be a good problem-solving mystery game featuring some of his favorite Peanuts characters. After several attempts to help him get Charlie Brown out of the house, I finally got frustrated myself and put the game away so he wouldn’t keep pestering me to figure it out (I was stumped, and didn’t realize there was a “help” file). He finally dug it out months later and figured it out himself, but I forbid him from playing as Lucy because of the negative language she used towards the other characters. We finally pitched the game and moved on to Putt-Putt, Freddy Fish, and Pajama Sam. Much more positive role models, challenging but not frustrating problem solving games, fun music, and a more kid-friendly pace. Don’t waste your money. This game is an insult to Charles Schulz.

  3. This game takes around an hour and a half to complete. It is VERY slow, boring, and any child under 7 will be bored to pieces after the first scenario of trying to get out of Charlie Brown’s house. The narration is too long, you can’t speed it up, and once you think you’ve solved the game and it’s over, it continues on and on again.The only way I can recommend this is for young kids 3-5, who just want to see the Peanuts characters interact on screen and the opportunity to click on things and see what they do. Once you have finished the game once, it remembers this and you can now play any one of the game/puzzle sections of it again, but if you take it out of your hard drive completely, you will be back to square one. Other than that, it is very frustrating to play the entire thing.

  4. I bought this discount-rack item for my kindergarten-age nephew shortly before the holidays. I read a series of negative reviews on Amazon.com and frankly didn’t expect a whole lot from the game.Superficially, there are problems. The animation looks like it was drawn by Charles M. Schulz, but the rest of the game convinced me that it was designed by people who’d never read the comic strip or seen the TV specials before. After all, the first words spoken during the introductory sequence are: “The Peanuts!”. The CD case itself points you to a German website, and I get the impression this game was designed by German programmers who know English only as a second language. Some of the things the Peanuts characters say during the game are 100% at odds with Schulz’s deceptively simple use of the English language.Once you get past the surface complaints, the game itself is a lot of fun. I solved it with my nephew over the course of four sessions (each about a week apart, but he kept asking to come back to it). I will honestly say I could not have solved this game myself without frequent reference to the help file included on the CD-ROM. Then again, I grew up playing all the Sierra “Quest” games (Space Quest, Police Quest), none of which you could solve without buying the hint book… at least here the solutions comes free of charge! To be fair, I didn’t read the answers directly to my nephew, I just gave him hints as to what he was supposed to do at certain dead ends.As with any good kids-oriented video game, solving the mystery is not the only goal of playing. There are several funny sight gags. There are nine games to play along the way, each at two levels of difficulty, and once you reach a game you can go back to play it at any time. The games vary hand-eye coordination with problem solving.In sum, a rewarding game that is not as cheaply made as it appears.

  5. It’s a fun game in good condition. Be careful to check if your operating system works with this software. It is dated.
