Disney's Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree is for children of all ages but is targeted at preschoolers through first graders. This CD-ROM focuses on both comprehension and word recognition (reading skills) through an explorative approach.
Winnie the Pooh is a funny bear. He lives in the Hundred Acre Woods behind the house of Christopher Robin, along with his friends Rabbit, Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, Owl, and Tigger. Like most bears, Pooh likes honey. In fact, it's his favorite thing to eat. So, when Pooh wakes up one morning only to discover that all his honey jars are empty, it's up to him to find more for breakfast. Unfortunately for Pooh, his love for the sweet sticky stuff gets him in more trouble than he'd bargained for. After being foiled at the bee tree, Pooh eats all of Rabbit's honey and gets stuck in Rabbit's front door. Though his friends try pushing and pulling, he's stuck. All they can do is wait for him to lose weight.

All the misspelled words (such as HUNNY and RABBIT’S HOWSE) are corrected in this game. Even the misspelled words in the movie pictures of the sing alongs were digitally edited to show the correct spelling. These changes were probably done to avoid encouraging children misspelling.
