Description from the packaging.
An object recognition game. Children help Big Bird and Little Bird sort the mail and deliver packages to the right stores on Sesame Street. Everyone on Sesame Street waits for Big Bird and Little Bird to bring the morning mail. Children make choices to help their feathered friends make the right deliveries to the right places! As children help Little Bird make his rounds, they match each picture-package with the store in which it belongs. They can experiment with different possibilities while playing. Does the car go with the bus or with the egg? Do the shoes go with the tree or with the socks? By pressing one of three keys on the computer keyboard, children tell Little Bird the right answer. When a round of play is completed, all of the stores on Sesame Street light up. If there is a mail mix-up, the shopkeepers gently point out mistakes and encourage the child to try again. Big Bird's Special Delivery provides a playful setting in which children can practice an important pre-school skill: classification of objects. Children feel at home with their Muppet friends, especially Little Bird, who is just their size and relies on their help. The accompanying manual illustrates the ease of play in a tone and vocabulary that is appropriate for pre-schoolers. Emphasizing computer interaction and featuring lively, colorful graphics, this unique computer activity helps children improve their understanding of the attributes of form, class, and function- while having fun! This product was developed by Children's Television Workshop, producers of Sesame Street, The Electric Company, 3-2-1 Contact and Square One TV. CTW software is designed to attract and hold children's interest, providing an environment in which they can grow and learn.
