The Jolly Postman's Party

Following on from the success of The Jolly Post Office CD-ROM, The Jolly Postman's Party is the second title based on the best-selling Jolly Postman books. This beautifully crafted CD-ROM has all the fun and excitement of a traditional birthday party and is set in Goldilocks house, where the Jolly Postman is hosting the festivities for this well-known storybook character and her guests. The user can join in the party games and activities, which have all been created in line with the National Curriculum, to entertain and educate young users.

Sign in the Party Guest Book, help the Postman make the birthday tea, and play traditional party games. In addition the great selection of clip art party stationery allows you to plan and prepare for your own party, or design and colour birthday cards which can be sent to other users, or storybook characters via the Internet.
