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.
