Cat in the hat party character) and the most popular character for children in a single game in history. The game was released in North America in 1984 as a kit-based model kit, later in North America, it was licensed by Milton Bradley. The game kit had a box which was actually two boxes together, one for the box contning the character's card and the other for the accessory box contning the hat, gloves, and the like.

History

The Cat in the Hat originated in 1972, when a group of British parents founded The Cat in the Hat Ltd. company. Cat in the Hat was brought to the United States by Milton Bradley Company in 1984.

Themes

The Cat in the Hat is notable for being one of the few educational games that does not focus on mathematics. Rather, the game teaches the children logical thinking, problem solving, creativity and concentration, and the importance of learning. Cat in the Hat teaches children to think by asking questions that do not have the standard multiple choice answers, children must come up with their own answers.

In addition to teaching children creativity, Cat in the Hat teaches children the importance of reading. The game contns over 500 jokes, which the children must read and recognize in order to progress. The joke can be used as a test of how much a child knows about the subject of the lesson. After solving the jokes, the children must match the answers to the jokes with the characters in the puzzle.

Game mechanics

When asked to solve a problem, the children are asked questions. These questions involve an object, animal, object and so on. Each item represents a possible answer to the question. Sometimes the items, characters, objects and so on would be found on the board, in which case they are called 'moves'. The pieces are usually hidden behind a curtn, requiring the children to 'move' the pieces to discover the correct answers. If the correct answers are not avlable, then the children are given hints. Eventually, the children are given a 'free-play' time in which they must use their imaginations to find the answers.

Reception

The Cat in the Hat was a big hit with parents. In its first year of release, over a million units of the game were sold, and since then, it has consistently sold over 250,000 units per month.

The game has not been met with universally positive reviews, however. Some reviewers point to the game as potentially being addictive to children.
