HASH(0xb2d34600) out of 5 stars Excellent for challenging your child's brain! Jan. 19 2007
By Robin M. Elder - Published on Amazon.com
I used this as part of my home-school curriculum for my 1st and 2nd graders. It is great for teaching children critical and logical thinking skills. For example, in order to get the Zoombinis from one side of the river to the next you have to arrange them in a certain order according to certain characteristics. Usually, the player is given a clue as to what are the acceptable characteristics. The goal is to get all of the Zoombinis to the destination.

My girls LOVE this game and play it frequently for long periods of time. Sometimes, I have to read the clues given and explain them to the girls before they can proceed, but more often than not they are able to figure it out on their own.

IF you are looking for a fast action, thrilling, whiz-bang, cool graphics game, this is NOT what you're looking for. This is more of a game of strategy and thinking than run around and kill the aliens kind of game. Your child or student will have to be fairly independent to play this game and be able to do a lot of problem solving and thinking on their own. Also, if you're child/student has a low tolerance for frustration, you might not want to purchase this game. Frequently, it takes several tries to get the strategy or riddle figured out before the player is successful. There are several difficulty settings, but even at the lowest setting your child/student probably needs to be at least 5 or 6 years old to play on his or her own.

HASH(0xb2c9fc54) out of 5 stars Instant hit with my 7 year old Dec 6 2006
By amazonbuyer - Published on Amazon.com
Some buyers are having trouble because the Zoombinis they're inadvertantly getting old versions that give them problems on Win XP.

I purchased the Zoombinis Mini 2 Pack from rksglobalbooks thru Amazon Marketplace and both DVD's downloaded with ease on our XP. So if you want to get a current version that gives you no problems, check out rksglobalbooks. I got the cd's today, popped them in the computer and my son is playing as we speak.

Rksglobalbooks offers expedited shipping (if you want it). I got the item in 3 business days (priority mail). So if you want this specific Zoombinis product, this is the merchant to go with. I am very happy.

Just a note: One reviewer also said that with the older cd's you should say "yes" to loading Quicktime 2.1 when the option appears and then there should be no problems running the program.

HASH(0xb2cae120) out of 5 stars Great BUT DOESN'T WORK ON WINDOWS VISTA June 15 2009
By Amazon T - Published on Amazon.com
We had Zoombini Logical Journey on our old computer and our 6 year just loves the game.
But when we got the new computer with Windows Vista we bought this two-pak (thinking it would be updated for Vista) and it doesn't work.
We had to boot up the old computer with XP in the Den so the kids could play zoombini on that system. Only the original Zoombini logical game disk works on XP operating system. The Zoombini Mountain Rescue game that comes in this two-pak does not work on either of our computers XP or Vista, so it was a waste of money. Hope they make a compatible disk soon.

HASH(0xb2d5e5c4) out of 5 stars A good problem-solving game April 4 2007
By RHL - Published on Amazon.com
I bought the Zoombini Mini 2 pack for my daughter, who is 6 years old, because she no longer found her Clifford and Starflyer games Clifford The Big Red Dog Thinking Adventures,StarFlyers Royal Jewel Rescue,StarFlyers Alien Space Chase challenging anymore. She played with the Zoombinis Logical Journey CD for the first time yesterday evening and was completely hooked. A few of the challenges (e.g. encounter with the Pizza Troll) were more difficult than others, but they were not off-putting nor too frustrating, and it wasn't long before she discovered how to apply logic and pattern recognition to overcome those difficulties. The game occasionally pauses now and then, but it could simply be due to my computer and not the software design. Fortunately I installed it on my Dell without any of the problems described by other buyers. Overall, the game is fun for younger kids, but I can see how older kids might find the game repetitive after a while. In any case, my 6-year-old enjoys the game very much. The first thing she said when she woke up this morning was that she couldn't wait to come home from school so she could continue to play her Zoombinis game. The 2nd CD, Mountain Rescue, is reportedly slightly more advanced, so I'll wait a few more weeks before introducing her to it.

My 5-year old daughter loves it. My 3-year old son struggles a bit, but it is getting. Definitely teaches them process of logical deduction. It looks so fun, I actually would like to play it myself sometime.
