Don't be fooled by the title - this is no game for cissies! When it first appeared it had all the reviewers tied in confused knots. You are a teddy bear, shut in the toy box with the other toys for the night, but your baby's crying so you must get out and go and comfort him. The only way out is by using all the coloured building bricks and assembling them correctly, whilst avoiding all the nasty toys who want to stop you. When you escape the box you realise it is inside another, bigger box, and that one's inside another, and so on... What confused everyone at the time was the method used to assemble the bricks, and Imagine's cassette inlay is of no help, nor are the game's instructions on screen: this is the outline idea - pick up the brick and take to top of screen slightly to right of correct colour block, then drop it. The brick should slide into place as if by magic. Considering the packed screen, the graphics are excellent. Confusion of keys, but this isn't an arcade speed game. Watch out for clockwork soldiers, play people and the aggressive train - and the baby's crying - there, there, there...
