The five characters in the Gigglebone Gang offer a variety of mathematical activities as they take children on a tour of Infinity City. At each of the ten locations in the city (shown with actual photographs), children can play a mathematical game, use a free explore area, hear a song with a mathematical theme, practice counting, and view and participate in a cartoon-like mathematical story. Some of the activities offer only limited opportunities for interaction -- instead, children watch and listen. Each location focuses on a different content area, including counting, numbers, sequences, sorting and classifying, money, time, and parts and wholes. Despite the suggested age range of 4 - 8, many of the activities involve content appropriate for pre-school and kindergarten children. No reading is required.
