"Three little worms, Albert, Wendy, and Pablo, guide the player through a musical adventure featuring one clown piano, two steel guitars, and so on, up to ten. When you click on Albert, he fills you in about the background of a given instrument, while Wendy demonstrates the sounds. Pablo, the artist, lets you build an instrument or color it in; when you choose the coloring option, the paintbrush tool makes a delightful ploosh sound into the color you select."
"The multilingual, multilayered game lets children learn about numbers in English, French, Spanish, and German. With songs in all languages, it's also a great way for mom and dad to brush up on forgotten foreign tongues."
