The Hula Hamsters When you begin this game you find yourself in a colorful, activity-filled bedroom with your tour guides: Hula Hamsters Frankie and Bean. The room is very interactive - just use your mouse to click on practically anything you see in order to be transported to that part of the room and a minigame, watch (and interact with) an animation, or just listen to fun sounds and see mini-animations.

Some of the minigames:

Velly Balls
Throw these colorful balls at the target's numbered rings and create an addition equation - then type in your answer. There are no penalties for wrong entries!

Where's the Bean?
A hamster version of the classic shell game; Bean is hiding under one of four cups and it's up to you to find him by clicking on the right one after they've been shuffled.

Brain Twister
Concentration, on a Twister-style board - test your memory by matching up eight pairs of animated pictures.

Mini Moeba's Miraculous Microscope Matching Game
Peer through the microscope and try to match what you see to the original item on the right side of the screen - harder than it looks!

At any point you are able to click on an arrow to back out of a game or return to the Hula Hamster's bedroom. You are never forced to finish or made to feel incompetent. [source:mobygames]
