Summary: My 3 yr old (who is only allowed ds time infrequently) finds this game great fun but it's pretty mindless and not very challenging at all. If they like dora and are small i.e., 3-4 this will entertain them and is easy for them to do. However the entire game lasts about ten mins and it's really pretty stupid stuff. I got it because my little one kept erasing her big sisters games and wanted her to have one of her own when she got time on the ds.
Summary: Bought this for my 4 year old girl who loves Dora. She thoroughly enjoys it and finds the games the right level for her age. A great DS game for preschoolers. Would definitely recommend for girls.
Summary: My niece loves the Dora games on my Wii, so when she got a DS for Christmas I got her this game. She is four, had never played a DS before and had finished this game in half an hour. Right to the end. I was astonished and spent ages reading through the instructions to see if there was anything that I had missed, but that was really it. She played it through again, in about twenty minutes the second time, and I doubt it will be looked at again.
Summary: Bought this for my 4 year old daugther, no honestly I did, for a long train journey. Went down a storm with her. Very easy controls and simple gameplay, infact she completed the game at the first attempt, however she thoroughly enjoyed playing it and since children love repetition and learn that way, she still plays it to this day (2 months later).
Summary: If you are looking for simple games that are not going to put off those who are just learning to read, this is probably your best bet. Yes it is basic, but think of it as an entry level game. My 4 year old loves this as she is not yet confident with some of the other games marketed as 3+ and gives up on them.
