    An old mid-late 90's PC game, I played it on my 1st ever computer a packard bell my parents bought me and my sister for christmas. It had a bunch of activities for kids I think. I don't remember many of them but I remember one that had different themed pictures for you to color, like a picture of space and a martian and when you finished coloring it the way you wanted, it had a play button or something and the picture would come alive and play a short cartoon. Martian jumps in a ship and flys to the moon or something like that.

    It came free with my computer I remember along with the game "Dangerous Creatures"

    Tried searching history of Packard Bell Sale deals but no luck ....

    Please, been looking for along time haha

          Are you perhaps thinking of "kid pix"? It's a drawing prog designed for kids, and IIRC, it had some kind of stamps that would animate.

            Maybe but I don't think so, I can't tell because I can't find any video or pics or info about KidPix. The only pic I found looks like a game that came out not too long ago and doesn't look like the one I remember.

              Keep in mind that there's more than 1 version of the prog. There's the original that came out in the 90s sometime, then there are more recent versions with more eyecandy (deluxe & 3d).

              http://www.grenier-du-mac.net/fiches/applications/kidpixcouleur.htm
              http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TA2t09mkbDQ

              We had the kidpix prog on a mac in highschool (but the prog was available for windows too), it was my first experience with any kind of drawing software. The animated stamps in that youtube pic are like the ones I remember. I also seem to remember a martian/UFO one, but I'm not 100% sure. When looking for pics or vids, avoid anything with "deluxe" or "3d", those are later versions.

              Do you remember these monochrome photos?

              They would act as a sort of eraser, you could "erase" parts of your existing drawings by selecting the photo brush, then you could draw on top of that photo.

                Don't think so, thanks though. None of those links you gave look anything much like it...

                  I think it may be Math Workshop.


                  I made a video for you since I couldn't find many images on it or videos for that matter. I think it may be the line thing or the videoblock thing. Each gets animated after you complete it. I didn't record or play much because mine was crashing. Also there is no sound for some reason.

                  More Information on the game:

                    Sorry to bump an ancient thread but I'm looking for this game as well. I'm 100% confident I am thinking about the exact same game as the original poster here and it is driving me insane. If anyone has any more ideas about what it could be I'd be very appreciative.

                    It's none of the games that the people have previously mentioned.
