A bit MINIMALISTIC, BUT nice EDUCATIONAL DS game. He likes it, and we are happy.

Summary: Moving from Leapster to DS. Our son (6) got more interested in Mario games on the DS, than the educational games for his Leapster handheld. Although we don't deny him playing Mario and other non-educational DS games, we still prefer to see him playing educational games. Which he doesn't do that often anymore. We decided to try this game, to see if he would play with it on his DS, and learn from it. It was a success. He likes it, plays a lot with it, and learns from it.
Summary: I bought this game for my 7 year old, he loved it, the only drawback is that there are only 25 animals you can win, he did it in about a week, after that you start over winning the same 25 animals, he was not happy, he was over it so fast and had no more challenge, he wished there were more animals to win and more challenges as you win more of them.
Summary: This game keeps my daughter entertained for hours. There are several different games to choose from, and all the games teach a variety of facts about many different animals. My daughter loves using it to quiz friends on animal facts.
Summary: This unisex game has a good mix of educational quiz type games and pacman style maze adventures. I didn't want my kids to learn that animals are just cute commodities that we dress up, put in cages and enter into shows (like most DS animal games). This game is good for kids who genuinely like animals and they will learn a few facts along the way.It is quite fast paced and not too easy or too hard for my five and a half year old.
