You can also reinforce the education of a foreign language by switching the chapter's dialog between available languages (available now: French, coming soon: German, Italian and Spanish), not to mention you also introduce the children to learning about history.

The gameplay is straightforward: the player reads the story, and looks for the objects that the characters are seeking to help them on their way. There are six chapters to each story. To unlock a chapter you must find the right objects scattered throughout the Catalog. To acquire the objects, kids play terrific minigames, earn points, and get the needed items.
