What is Bears?


At the risk of causing distress to a few toddlers, I will confess that Ted & Floppy didn't really author this CD-ROM. It is a children's educational cd-rom with games, music and a interactive storybook. This was a self funded project that took me about 3000 hours to complete. I wrote the script, drew all the illustrations, designed the interface, did the animation, programming, casting, organised production and even designed the packaging and marketing material. Despite completing the project without the skills of a specialized team or any financial assistance from a publisher, it is still a top quality product that has earned a number of awards and some excellent reviews.

More information:


The House

Play in the garden or explore the rooms in the house. Listen to the town crier in the hall call the hour. Play in the play room or go to the lounge and listen to the Bear Orchestra play some of your favourite nursery rhymes. And if you want something a bit more upbeat, head to the study to jam with the Bears Blues Band.

Play hide-and-seek with Ted, who could be hiding anywhere in the house. But Ted is good at hiding, so you might have to click on Floppy for clues.

Find the many hidden objects like the bi-plane, hot air balloon and the flying saucer. This house is full of fun and surprises and wherever you go there's always lots of things to do.
