Bob the Builder Can-Do Zoo

This giveaway is now closed. Thank you for your participation.
The winner is Sylvia Belle.

Can she play it? Yes, she can!

This is the first computer software program that Baby Bug has ever been exposed to and she loved it! She’s not too familiar with Bob the Builder but that didn’t matter. She just enjoyed the fact that she could follow along with the verbal instructions and complete the many tasks.

From the site: “The delivery train has come to town, dropping off all of the animals for the Bobland Bay Zoo. Unfortunately, there is no Bobland Bay Zoo! Monkeys have moved into the school playground, alligators are in the swimming pool, and the lion has taken over the Mayor’s office! Work doubletime with Bob and his Can-Do Crew to get the zoo built and make homes for all the animals. Teaches: pattern recognition, memory, hand-eye coordination, spatial recognition, shape and color identification, planning and time sequencing, and problem solving.”

Thank goodness Baby Bug didn’t have to actually construct a zoo but more of matching shapes and colors, recognizing patterns, and finding hidden objects. The voice explained directions in simple terms and there was always a “question mark” on the screen in case you needed it repeated. This was a great feature since Baby Bug is still a little too young to read.

Girlie Girl, being on the older side of the age recommendations, found this game a little too easy and breezed through the activities fairly quickly. However, she still enjoyed it since she’s always been a Bob the Builder fan.

Overall, we found Bob the Builder Can-Do Zoo enjoyable and entertaining. It can be purchased at for $19.95.
