7th Level 



Barney Goes to the Circus

There are 6 different activities within this software, with 3 different difficulty levels (1-easy, 2-medium, 3-hard), and an explore mode. This software helps children learn different facial expressions and emotions, positional terms (i.e. up and down), different circus animals and their sounds, recognize capital and lower-case letters, and understand the differences between whole and parts of objects. The cursor icon used is a red arrow. When the cursor passes over an object that can be clicked, the arrow becomes larger. After the child has correctly completed 3 questions within an activity, Barney and the other characters will sing a song.

Baby Bop’s Clown Coaster
Baby Bop and Barney are in front of a roller coaster. The goal is to choose the clown that has a certain expression that Baby Bop is asking for. The child is given 4 clown face choices. When the child chooses the correct clown, the roller coaster in the background goes through the loops of the roller coaster tracks. In the explore mode, the child can make different clown faces by mixing different expressions of the different parts of the clown’s face.

BJ’s Carousel
BJ and Barney are in front of a carousel. The goal is to choose the seal in the position that BJ is asking for. After the child chooses the correct seal, the carousel cars will move up and down and play typical carousel music. Some of the terms that the child learns is up, down, on, under, in, etc. In the explore mode, the child can create their own carousel given different cars and other objects normally seen on carousels. When the “Go” button is pressed, the carousel cars go up and down on their poles while typical carousel music is played.

Hootin’ Annie’s Big Top
Hootin’ Annie and Barney are in a circus tent. The goal is to match the circus animal to either the picture that Hootin’ Annie is holding or the name of the animal. Depending on the level, the child matches the animal using a matching picture or the matching sound that the animal makes. In the explore mode, the child can mix and match the different circus animal parts and sounds.

Terry’s Letter Train
Terry the Train and Barney are in front of railroad tracks. The goal is to match upper and lower case letters to their shadow. At level 3, the child is required to match the upper case letters to its lower case counterpart. In the explore mode, the child is given the choice of 10 different pictures to paint and 6 different colors to use.

Professor Tinkerputt's Snack Bar
Professor Tinkerputt and Barney are in a snack bar. The goal is to separate whole and parts of different foods and put them in different bins. At level 2, the goal is to choose the correct part that will complete the given food. At level 3, the goal is to create a whole food given different sizes of that food. In the explore mode, the child can make their own pizza given the choice of traditional pizza toppings, flowers, animals, and bugs. The child can also feed the pizza box located at the bottom left of the screen. My boys love making really weird pizzas, the grosser the better!!!

Video Ferris Wheel
There is a video screen located on a ferris wheel. The child can play different clips from the actual Barney TV shows. This activity teaches children the VCR symbols for play, stop, and repeat (rewind). There are no difficulty levels or explore mode in this activity. This is a good starting point for learning how to use the mouse.

For Windows (32-bit Systems) [*Please review compatibility/platform sections in 'What You Get']

This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.


All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.


Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.


Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.


Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.


  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.

Additionally, international orders typically have to go through governmental customs, which can delay the arrival process.
