An exciting, fun filled animated journey around the world aimed at 5 to 8 year olds.  

Clever animation combined with vivid photography makes Carmen Sandiego Junior Detective Edition great entertainment for kids as young as 4 years old. Meet Zack, Ivy and the Chief as kids play along for hours. Easy to navigate, clues are given in pictures and spoken dialogue with lots of help from the ACME Detective Agency.

Ever want to send your kids to Saudi Arabia? It's only a mouse click away when they play Carmen Sandiego Junior Detective Edition! Kids stumble on some pretty amazing facts about different countries as they search for Carmen and her wacky gang.

Kids start their worldwide chase by signing in on the GizmoTapper, a sophisticated yet wacky crime stopping gadget. Of course, the ACME Detective Agency provides our young detectives with built in help with Dee Jaye, the voice of the GizmoTapper. There's an option to turn off the automatic help, although children can get help at any time during a case by clicking on Dee Jaye's Call Button.

Each case concentrates on one region of the world so kids can discover different countries and world cultures. After the Chief greets his new agents, kids click on a flashing Map Button to continue. A Map Screen rolls down to show them a world map, while it automatically zooms in to the country where the crime took place. Kids piece together a Wanted Poster puzzle to identify which crook they are chasing.

Pre readers and readers will practice their memory skills by collecting clues and paying attention to country flags, animals and local products.

The object of the game is to catch the villains before the GizmoTapper runs out of juice. Good versus bad is the prevailing theme in this software.

As kids capture members of Carmens gang, they will be promoted through a series of eight ranks from Rookie to Super Sleuth. Promotions are great fun for the kids as they are commended for a job well done. Catching Carmen is the ultimate honour for any agent, of course.

Playing Carmen Sandiego Junior Detective Edition is one way to prepare for Broderbund's Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?, which is aimed at kids 9 and older. It's also a fantastic way for kids to see the world without a passport as they develop memory and matching skills, gain familiarity with maps and symbols and learn to piece together clues to solve a mystery.

Questions (2)
Is there a way we can order with a license for 15 computers instead of buying 15 copies?

I'm afraid not, this title is obsolete, sorry. If you do end up purchasing our last 14 copies (as of right now that's all that's in stock but we can double check the warehouse for you) we can take them out of the jewel cases & put them into a cd-wallet to make storage easier for you. It also only works on 32-bit computers, up to Windows 7. Most Windows 7 computers sold were 64-bit, so you would need to check yours. You can email us for further information at

Have bought older game for Windows 95/98 and can't get it to work on Windows XP Home Ed. Any suggestions?

I'm afraid that version probably won't work, but you can try applying compatibility settings & see how you go, sometimes you get lucky. Follow the instructions here: Best of luck! :)
