MR T is back again in this Good Housekeeping package aimed at 4-7 year olds. There are two games on the tape, both concentrating on 'look closely!' problems.

Rainy afternoons with the youngsters could be filled with the task of beating Mr T at matching pairs. There are 12 cards which are turned over in turn, either by two children, or one child playing the computer.

There is plenty of button pushing to be done which should satisfy even the most eager of fingers. The game operates on four levels with either animals or mosaic shapes.

Switcheroo, the second game, requires a little bit of planning. At the easiest level you have to change one animal to another choosing an intermediate stage, either colour, size or animal with or without a bow tie. There are three intermediate stages to be chosen at the most difficult level.

The problem with such games is that they are so structured that they allow a child little feeling of control. Mr T could be a friendly playmate, or he could become a tyrant.
