The Playroom was a computer game for ages 3 to 6 manufactured by Brøderbund. It featured Pepper Mouse and was set in his playroom. Features included the spinner, which taught kids how to count, an ABC book where kids could place objects wherever they wanted on the screen, the computer which taught kids to spell, the cuckoo clock which taught kids to tell time, the mousehole game which was a dice-rolling game, and the mix-up toy, where kids could arrange heads, torsos, and legs from various characters to create others.

A sequel to this game, called The Backyard, was released in 1993. It featured several new games, including tic-tac-toe, an animal matching game, and a clip art storybook illustrator that could save players' storybooks.
