The Mario's Early Years Collection is a compilation of three point-and-click educational games starring Mario (Fun with Letters, Fun with Numbers and Preschool Fun). To create the games and ensure suitability for children, Software Toolworks hired child development specialists, educational research experts and speech and language teachers.
The three games are each made up of several minigame activities designed to reinforce or foster basic skills and help children in discovering aspects of everyday things, providing them many hours of entertainment. The respective games help children recognize colors, letters and numbers. Fun with Letters teaches phonics to users. Fun with Numbers teaches grouping, separating and organizing objects to/from a set as well as thinking about numbers through songs. Preschool Fun teaches learning materials for children on their first school year with a mix of Mathematics and English language. All three products aid in promoting self-esteem, interaction between children and parents, developing new skills and imagination as well as confidence and being positive about learning.
