This children's program is a great combination of live-action and computer-animated characters. Blue, the adorable bright blue puppy dog with floppy ears, helps her friend Steve play games and learn about their environment by leaving him clues. Steve uses his notebook to record all the clues -- great memory and logic skill-builders for children. And then there's the catchy Blues Clues theme song, which Steve sings whenever he starts the game. Great fun for ages four and under.
This kids show set in a department store uses stories and songs to encourage problem solving. Characters include Jeff, a mannequin that comes to life; Muffy, a mouse that talks in rhymes; and a security guard named Sam.
