Creative Wonders was an educational software corporation from 1994 to 1999. It created computer games based on children's characters like Sesame Street, Madeline, Schoolhouse Rock!, Arthur, Little Bear, Dr. Seuss and ABC World Reference. It was a Joint-Venture between Electronic Arts and the American Broadcasting Company.

History[edit]

Creative Wonders started out in 1994 as a division of Electronic Arts called EA Kids before renaming to Creative Wonders. Creative Wonders was responsible for creating popular games like the Sesame Street and Madeline series. In 1995, Creative Wonders teamed with ABC to create the ABC World Reference Series, a series of encyclopedias and atlases on CD-ROM.

In 1998, Creative Wonders' assets were purchased by The Learning Company and was folded into the latter, and later Mattel Interactive.
