Official Fact Sheet:

Though this is a fairly large age gap to bridge, the content on Pingu: A Barrel of Fun achieves it effortlessly. For the younger end of the age group, there are shape-sorting, number- and letter-matching, sound-and colour-recognition puzzles to crack. For five and six-year-olds, the “hard” rather than “easy” skill option will give plenty to amuse. For example, in the easy letter game, players must choose the initial letter of a given everyday object, whereas in the hard version, must spell the whole word. (Hover over the letter and you get the name of the sound; once you’ve placed it, the voice-over tells you the name of the letter–an extremely sound educational approach.)
