Humpty Dumpty, Little Bo Peep, Jack and Jill, Oh my! All the nursery rhymes are mixed up, and Mother Goose needs YOU to help put them all back together. Be either a little boy or girl as you go searching all throughout the nursery rhyme land for the lost items. Bring each item back to their rightful owners and watch each nursery rhyme play out.

Quite simply this game was made for kids. Your job is to just walk around the screens finding an item, and returning it to the person it belongs to. There are up to 18 nursery rhymes in all that are mixed up, and returning one of the items starts an animated sequence, as well a musical melody of the respective nursery rhyme. Unfortunately the one flaw is that they tried to make it so simple, that you can only carry one item at a time, and walking over another item will automatically switch which item you are carrying. This can cause problems when you accidentally walk into an item you didn't want, only to find that it is now the only item in your inventory.

As for re-playability, each of the nursery rhyme items that you need to find are always randomly placed throughout the land, so each time your kid plays through the game it will bring a new challenge to the table. Add the fact that solving a nursery rhyme gives your kid a reward by hearing the nursery rhyme play out, and you might just have a game that your kids will enjoy for days.
