Children's Computer Workshop (CCW) is a division of the Children's Television Workshop created in 1982 to develop educational computer and video games based on the characters and concepts from Sesame Street.
CCW's first set of games was released in 1982, and they could be played on a 48K Apple.
Mix and Match used AppleSoft BASIC; the other three required Integer BASIC.
CCW began releasing a set of games in 1983 for the Atari 2600 VCS computer and game system. CCW worked with Atari to create a Kid's Controller for young children, with a large keypad. Each CCW game was packaged with a plastic overlay that could be placed on top of the keypad to help the child learn how to control the characters in the game.
Games released in 1983 were:
