One Stop Fun Shop titles are design-and-print programs featuring lovable and familiar Humongous characters in this case, the resourceful Freddi Fish and friends who have starred in many a Junior Adventure.
Kids can create loads of printable art work including party supplies, toys, calendars, growth charts, and bookmarks. Activities include an easy-to-use paint pad with the ability to mix multiple colors on a paint palette, customizable coloring book stories, and a mix-and-match O-Matic activity that allows children to transform Freddi in a variety of ways.
See Pajama Sam's One-Stop Fun Shop for details and a full review.
Minimum requirements are Windows 95/98, a Pentium 90 processor, 16 Mb RAM, and 4X CD ROM. Mac users require a 90 MHz Power PC with 32 Mb RAM, System 7.6.1, and at least 4X CD ROM.
This title is pure fun and allows kids to imagine, create, design, and be rewarded with useful and fun printed results.
All children love to create and print their own artwork. With help from pre-designed templates, cute and easy-to-use design screens, and a fun paint pad, children can do just that. Familiar and lovable characters add to the appeal, and "extra" activities make this a title kids will enjoy.
Very kid-friendly controls make this title easy to use for even the youngest of designers. Added parental printer controls help save paper and ink.
Kids are only limited by their imaginations, and will return to this program time and time again.
At a retail price of $20 US, this title is a good buy. As with all print shop software for kids, figure in the cost of printer ink, paper, and extra arts and crafts supplies that will be necessary to keep kids happily creating.
