"The cab makes 10 stops, exposing kids to different math topics (counting, fractions, size, number names, and so on). Each stop features a scene rendered with silly animated characters overlaid on a photorealistic backdrop."
"Kids will love exploring Infinity City's park, museum, junkyard, stadium, and more. And they'll meet a culturally diverse group of people in a variety of helpful roles. They probably won't realize they're doing math."
San Jose Mercury News, Sunday, August 4, 1996
"The Gigglebone Gang is back - this time for a visit to Infinity City. They're armed with 50 activities that introduce youngsters to early math skills such as counting, shapes, sizes, classification, patterns and more. To see how math is used in everyday life, children visit 10 areas including a grocery store, hospital, construction site and junk yard."
"The program's strengths lie in the sheer number of activities and an easy-to-use design. Content is most appropriate for 4- to 6-year-olds, but even our older testers (aged 7 and 8) were kept entertained. In fact, it was hard for parents to make the youngsters quit playing.
"Our only serious complaint with the title is that it lacks a long-term record-keeping feature. Overall, though, this is an engaging program that provides many playful opportunitites to experiment with early math concepts."
MacAddict, November 1996
