Summary: Our daughter just turned 4 and really likes this game. From a parental prespective, it is pretty short and I would never buy for someone over the age of 4. It's too easy and short for the older kids.
Summary: I bought this game for my three year old grand-daughter and she played it for the first and then dhe jus pit it down. It is too easy for and it has too uch talking which slows it down since you have to wait until she finish speak to play the game. But it is an okay game.
Summary: I bought this for my daughters 6th b-day. I think she played it the day she opened it and hasn't played it since. She tells me that it is toooo easy and it was over too quickly. very disappointing.
Summary: My daughter loved this game, but completed it with no help from me in less than an hour. This was her first DS game ever and she just turned 3. Some unlocks/challenges would be nice to make the game last longer.
Summary: I bought this for my 4 year old daughter and it's way to easy for a 4 year old. She's 4 years and 2 months old. Game was over and done with in 30 minutes. It is a noisy game and even though there is a volume control on the DS Lite, her screaming into the mic was loud. It was fun at first, then the novelty wore off. Still a good buy for any Dora lover.
Summary: My 5-year old daughter really likes this title, but she beat it in about 20 minutes. That's not to say it doesn't have replay value, because she's played it several times since then, but it's a very small, very limited game - 20 minutes from start to finish? We'll see how much she still wants to play it over the long term, but I gave it 5 stars for fun and only 3 for value, since it's a full-priced title at almost $30 and it seems like there should be more to it than...
