Bear's Sense of Adventure

Jim Henson's Bear's Sense of Adventure PC CD learn social interaction kids game! 



Jim Henson 



Based on Jim Henson Television's popular 1999 children's television show on the Disney Channel, Bear in the Big Blue House. This interactive learning adventure puts you right inside the Big Blue House with just a click of the mouse! Join Bear and his friends, Pip, Pop, Ojo, Snowbear, and Treelo, as you explore over twenty activities, and discover the meaning of the five senses--sight, sound, smell, touch, and taste.

When the game begins you will need to sign your name and enter your birthday in front of Bear's Big Blue House. You can then start your visit, pick a path, and begin exploring the house! Once inside you will encounter Bear and his friends. There are five adventures that can be accessed by clicking on any of the characters. Pip and Pop need help making their famous clam dip (learn about the sense of taste), Ojo needs helps building a house for her friend Snowbear (learn about the sense of touch), Treelo needs help making music (learn about the sense of hearing), Tutter needs help redecorating (learn about the sense of sight), and you can also help Bear make a tripleberry pie while learning about the sense of smell. You will collect stories from Bear each time you complete an adventure. These will be collected in your storybook that can be accessed through the tool bar.

In addition to the five adventures, there are other games and activities that you can play in Bear's house. These include Pip and Pop's Kitchen Concentration, Touching Stories, Follow Bear's Nose, Sound Creatures, and Tutter's Cheese Maze. You should also keep your eyes open for berries that are scattered throughout the house, you need to collect these to help Bear make his tripleberry pie.

While exploring the Big Blue House, watch your cursor. It will change shape as you move the mouse around the screens. An Arrow means you can move to a different part of the room (left, right, or straight ahead), a Magnifying Glass means that you can take a closer look at that part of the room or go to a game, and a Yellow Paw means that you can interact with the object or get information from one of the characters. You can also move the cursor to the bottom of the screen to bring up the tool bar.

The game includes eight songs (six original, plus two from the television show), two modes of play (Mission and Free Play), 3D graphics, live-action video, and a printable storybook. This game of social interaction was designed to encourage children to think creatively; solve problems; use their imagination; build self-awareness, self-esteem, and friendships; and help others.

Bear in the Big Blue House: Bear's Sense of Adventure is for children ages three to six.

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.
