Counting World is a location in Mario's Early Years! Fun with Numbers and Mario's Early Years! Preschool Fun. It is one of the islands in the games and is represented by two hands with the numbers 1-10 sprawled across the fingers. In Preschool, it's represented by the numbers 1-4 on a blackboard. The player leaves through the pipe when finished.

Mario's Early Years! Fun with Numbers[edit]

Looks a bit big.

There are two sub-worlds within: Mario's Bedroom and Mario's Kitchen.

Mario's Bedroom Unlike other worlds, there is no traditional learning activity and as such, the room is more suited to discovery. Mario stands inside his bedroom while you count items within. Said room contains these selectable items:

  • A drawer containing a coat with Five buttons and Four pockets
  • Another drawer containing seven multicolored socks.
  • A Toy box containing six toys. (A rubber duck, a top, a ball, a fire truck, a teddy bear and a pony.)
  • Eight Shoes. (4 Pairs)

Mario himself is used for the numbers ten (fingers, toes), one (mouth, nose) and two (legs, eyes). Despite this being an educational tool for preschoolers to learn how to count, there are no selectable items for the numbers three or nine.

Mario's Kitchen

Looks a bit small.

Again, there is no traditional learning activity involved and as such, the room is more suited to discovery. Mario stands inside his kitchen while you count items within. Said room contains these selectable items:

  • A drawer with three spoons.
  • A cupboard with three cups.
  • A fruit bowl containing six fruits. (Two Apples, a Banana, some grapes, an orange and a tangerine.)
  • A cookie Jar with seven chocolate-chip cookies.
  • A plate rack with five different colored plates.
  • A fridge with eight fruits and vegetables. (An eggplant, some celery, a carrot, a squash, a tomato, a beet, a pepper and a slice of watermelon.)
  • A freezer with four popsicles.
  • A standard twelve-hour clock.

Despite this being an educational tool for preschoolers to learn how to count, there are no selectable items for the numbers one, nine or ten. This is also the only island that counts up to twelve.

Mario's Early Years! Preschool Fun[edit]

Teacher Kidnapping drills are common classroom protocol.

Yet again, there is no traditional learning activity involved and as such, the room is more suited to discovery. Princess Toadstool stands within her classroom as the player counts various items. As the items are counted, the children use their fingers to keep track of the current number for the player. The selectable items are:

  • One paint box
  • Two drawings (A Sunflower and a Whale.)
  • Three Teddy Bears
  • Four potted plants
  • Five paintbrushes
  • Six toy cars
  • Seven books
  • Eight pieces of chalk
  • Nine alphabet blocks (Spelling PIBEZ DJLT)
  • Ten fingers on the children
