Mario's Early Years! Preschool Fun is an educational Mario game released in North America in 1994 for the PC and SNES developed for children under six years of age. The game is set around a group of islands, where each island teaches a different subject to the players.
This world contains many art-related objects, such as pencils and ink jars. Here, the player must click on the indicated forms to make a picture. Luigi is sleeping, click on him so he will be awakened in order to start the game. When a form is clicked, Mario approaches and strikes it, resulting in the form being transported to the canvas.
This world is similar to a child playroom. Here, the player can count objects. When a group is tapped, the objects will be counted while the children in the room show the number with their fingers.
This world contains a grassy area with mountains in the background. Here, the player can click in some of Mario's body parts. If the player clicks on Mario's cap, it floats and show Mario's hair. If Mario's right hand is clicked, he slaps his fingers. If Mario's left hand is clicked, Mario claps his hands. If Mario's right foot is clicked, he taps it on the ground. If Mario's nose is clicked, he shakes it a bit.
The player can also click the monkeys in the background, causing them to wave. The sun in the background can be clicked, causing it to raise its eyebrows.
This world is similar to a farm. Here, the player must wake up a sleeping Luigi to start. Three animals are shown and a sound is played. The player must click the animal that makes the indicated sound.
In this world, the player must click the opposite item to the one that is being indicated at the top of the screen. The player must wake Luigi up first.
In this world, the player must first wake Luigi up. Then the game will indicate some pictures and their color. The player must click on the indicated object.
