Creatures Playground is the second of two titles in the Creatures series intended particularly for young children (ages 4-10), the first being Creatures Adventures. In these games the norns are bigger, rooms are brighter, and it generally feels more like a game than other incarnations of Creatures.
When both the original Creatures Adventures and Creatures Playground games are installed, they can be merged to form a single game known as Creatures Village. Creatures Village is also the name of the remastered Windows and Mac OS X compilation games that include both titles.
Creatures Playground was originally published in 2000 by Vivendi/Encore.
Creatures Playground features "a never-ending fairground for children to explore", with features including:
- A costume design workshop
- An alien space station
- A scary swamp
- Carnival rides with a build-it-yourself roller coaster
