Summary: Face it- a lot of games made for kids, especially on the DS, are embarrassing. When my daughter turned 2 last year, she started to show a lot of interest in the DS, and one of the games I was looking into getting for her was Disney Friends here. It got solid reviews, and the one thing that stood out to me was that it seemed to be made with fun for kids in mind, and wasn't just a 'hey, this is stupidly easy to play. Let's ship it out!' release.
Summary: In this game, you are the gaurdian to four popular Disney Characters, Pooh, Stitch, Dory, and Simba. You have to keep each character happy, feed them, make sure they sleep, and play with them, kind of like pets. Eventually, you will become each characters best friend, and you earn Gaurdian points, coins to buy various items for each character, and special items that each character will give you as you progress each day.
Summary: My 4 year old got a nintendo DS for x-mas, since she is unable to read yet it's hard to find games that she is able to play. Usually I have to sit and read to her what the game says as she play's which is quite boring for me .. This game does have some reading but she is able to figure out what needs to be done without knowing what it reads. It has many levels and she loves discovering new things.
Summary: Bought this for my 6 year old as she loves Simba in particular. Some of the repeated phrases are wearing, especially Stitch who appears to be constantly hungry when you see him... Slighly frustrating that you have to wait an indefinite amount of time to access all of the characters...so far we have only been allowed to visit 2. Lovely to buy things and manage coins, decorating the waiting area. The game has been regularly visited so far.
