Multimedia World, April 1995

"Completely narrated from start to finish, the disc guides kids through more than 100 craft ideas ranging from finger puppets to finger foods. Getting around inside the program is easy because all the instructions are spoken - just pass the cursor over an icon or picture to learn what it does and how to use it."

"The Supplies list is the most useful and compelling. From a pictorial list of comon household supplies, kids choose the ones they have on hand. The pictures selected drop into a search funnel at the bottom of the screen. Click on the Find button, and the program compiles a list of ideas using those items. I can't think of a craft book that makes such a search possible. One flaw is that the program finds common elements, not exclusive ones - so some projects may require extra materials."

"The craft ideas are fun and easy to do. Each suggestion includes a list of needed supplies. After a brief video introduction, the narrator explains each step. Written instructions acocmpany each procedure. Kids can review or skip to a specific point at any time by clicking on a numbered button. Each step is illustrated by a photograph, but without animation or video. All instructions are clearly explained in simple language."
