zip2 Fisher Price - My Grand Piano

Fisher Price - My Grand Piano is a music education program for ages 3 - 8 for the Commodore 64 or 128 (in C64 mode).  From what I could gather, I believe a hardware keyboard overlay accompanied this, but isn't necessary to use the software.

zip4 Sky Travel

This astronomy program, designed for persons ages 12 and up, was released in 1984 and included a 138-page manual. It provided an interactive guided tour of the universe—in the past, present, and future. The universe model could show the location of more than 1,200 stars, 88 constellations, 8 planets, deep sky objects, and the (then) future appearance (1986) of Halley’s comet. The program had four basic modes: map, set, sky, and chart. Map was used to select the location on Earth; month, day, year, and time were determined in set; optional displays were chosen in sky; and chart was used to project the sky on a celestial sphere with coordinate lines for creating, viewing, and printing your own star charts.

Here's are some links to the manual (including cheat sheet and easter eggs) and the addendum.  Additionally, here is a link to an article in the June / July issue of TPUG reviewing the Sky Travel program.

zip6 Story Machine NEW

Story Machine by Spinnaker (1982,83) - So I ran across this CRT image for the Commodore 64 and thought it might be a word processor, but after loading it, it quickly became apparent that it's a children's game that let's you create your own story in a semi-guided way.  After looking at a few screens, it struck me that it was a really neat idea, and that even young children of this day and age might find this not only fun, but educational.
