My daughters are big fans of I Spy. They have I Spy books, puzzles, and games. They even watch the I Spy show on HBO. Recently I started buying them the I Spy Computer games. The first one I bought on CD, but lately I have just been downloading them.
If you would like to try out the I Spy games for free, Real Arcade is running a great deal. You can download an I Spy game (worth $20) for free when you sign up for a 30 day trial of GamePass. The trial is also free! Here are the games available:
I Spy Fantasy
I Spy Treasure Hunt
I Spy Spooky Mansion Deluxe
My five year old and eight year old have played all three of these and love playing them together. They learn reasoning skills as well as attention to detail. The elementary school teachers are always recommending the various I Spy activities for the kids. It’s a wonderful way for the kids to learn computer skills and cognitive skills while also having fun.
Edited 10-16-09: Bad news! They have discontinued this program. they are now offering a free trial of their GameHouse Fun Ticket. It does have a lot of games that you can play online as well as one monthly download, just not I Spy. Click here to check it out.
