{{Video Game}}s designed to educate as well as entertain, often, but not always, using the conceit of AlphabetSoupCans. They may also be PopUpVideoGames.

These were also thought to be primarily for children, as a school supplement, but Nintendo showed adults can be into this as well.

Compare {{Exergaming}}.
