The Learning Company makes educational software for children, with an emphasis on games that teach topics such as reading and mathematics. Many of its older titles, including "Reader Rabbit," are considered obsolete. However, as of 2015, series such as the "Carmen Sandiego Adventures in Math" line remain current.
The Learning Company is known for using licensed characters in its educational games, including SpongeBob SquarePants and Scooby-Doo. Most of the titles by The Learning Company are aimed at children 8 years of age and younger, but it has also produced educational software designed for the 9 to 12 age bracket, such as "The ClueFinders" series.
