Ah Diddums is a computer game for the ZX Spectrum and Commodore 64 home computers released by Imagine (in the UK) in 1983.[2]


The player controls a teddy bear who is trying to escape a toy box in order to comfort his crying baby owner. Teddy's job is to arrange building blocks in a certain order in the shelf at the top of the screen,[3] allowing him to escape the toy box. On escaping one box Teddy finds himself in another toy box, escape from which is more difficult; there are 99 toy boxes in total from which to escape.[4]


Ah Diddums won "Best Original Game" at the Computer and Video Games 1983 Golden Joystick Awards.[2]
