Summary: I really like this game for my 5 year old. The only thing that I don't like is that it has you speak into the Mic ("MAP MAP!!!" - other things too) and it always says "Say it louder!" lol, i normally have her play her DS during quite time... IE my youngest is NAPPING!!!! Further, my 5 year old doesn't completely understand that it will have you repeat it no matter what. She firmly thinks she didn't say it loud enough, that Dora didn't hear her.
Summary: I read the reviews and should have taken their advice. Got this game for my daughter as a gift for her DS and she completed the game the first time she played. It was not challenging at all. Would not recommend for a 5 year old.
Summary: I bought One Dora Birthday Surprise for one 3 year old granddaughter and by the time the other 2 grandchildren ( 4 years old) watched her play it I knew I had to buy 2 more and I was glad to because they truly enjoy it!
