SuperKids Educational Software Review

"Tonka Construction provides an informative introduction to the world of construction through a glossary section, called "Info Alley", which details 14 'rigs' and their uses; a puzzle/paint section that allows the user to study 3 of the trucks in depth by repairing and painting them, and hands-on experience with such basics as demolition, survey, excavation and building, It provides valuable computer practice for a group of children that may find sitting at the computer an unappealing and difficult chore. It furthermore drills necessary school-related skills such as following directions, and fine motor manipulation. Mouse clicking and dragging initiates and completes most actions, spatial information is observed and processed, and trucks are carefully and precisely maneuvered."
