Summary: My 5 year old loves this game. Sometimes he is less inclined to choose educational games over others, but Animal Genius is his new favorite go-to game on DS. He loves animals and this is just perfect for his age level. He is always so excited to win more animals and can't put it down.
Summary: This game is GREAT for 4-5yr olds. I bought this for my 4yr old and he has learned SO much about animals. There are several different games the kids play to learn about animals. It keeps them occupied for hours. I highly recommend it to all parents if they want an educational games for their kids!
Summary: We got this game for my now 10-year old daughter who played it a bit but never loved it. About a year ago, my younger daughter (now 7) found it and asked if she could play. In the game, you do mini-games and answer animal trivia questions to "earn" 25 different animals in 5 different areas. She has fully played through the game at least 4 times and still plays it! If you have a 5-9 year old who loves animals, this is the game for you!
Summary: My nearly 6 year old daughter received this as one of her first Nintendo DS games and she loves it! Educational and fun = "edutainment" Great for kids with beginning reading ability (no long directions to follow on the screen) and she can play it without assistance!
Summary: We bought this game for our 6 year old daughter for her birthday and she has earned all of the animals after a week or so but she has played this games so many times. She just enjoys all the games and the quizzes. Frankly, it was the best money I ever spent.
