Summary: My 3 year old (who is new to gaming) finished it in 20 minutes after I showed her the basics. There's only a couple of mini games and a drawing section outside of the main adventure mode. We bought it at walmart for $19.99, as a goal/reward for her to work towards. WHAT A WASTE! D: I think she'll be fine with replaying it a few times for a while though. I would have rather spent about $8 or 9 (new) on a game with this level of content.
Summary: We had purchased a DS for our daughter's third birthday. She had never really played any game system before. The first game we got for her was Dora Saves the Snow Princess (after all, what is better than Dora?). My daughter was excited, and it was easy to get the hang of it. She played it, and in twenty minutes had mastered the game. And was done. It has the same format as a TV show - a problem, three 'places' to go, and then a happy dance.
Summary: I bought this game for my 4 year old daughter. She has mastered the nintendo DS fairly quickly! She learned how to play "Rhythm Heaven" with me and it took up her time and attention. I wanted to buy her something a little more age appropriate and thought that a Dora game would be a great surprise. She was thrilled when she opened it. We put it in the system and looked forward to a few occupied hours on Christmas morning..
Summary: My 3 year old was so excited about getting this game, but it took her about 20 min to beat the entire game. She plays the mini games a little, but after she completed everything she asked can she put her Carnival game back in! Such a waste of money even for a 2 year old! Should have been more learning stages or something more to look forward to!
BEWARE! NOT the same game as DORA Snow Princess on WII!

Summary: My daughter saw the commercial for Dora Saves the Snow Princess video game on television and HAD to have it. We do have both a Wii and a Nintendo DS but we got the DS version because she normally plays her games when we are out of the house and on the go. The commercial makes the game look exciting, with lush snow levels, shaking snow off trees and riding pegasus. It looked like a "lite" platformer for the preschool crowd. This game is nothing like that.
Conclusion: I bought this for my 4 year old and she had completed it within 20 minutes. I think she has played it over again maybe twice and now its too boring for her. It doesn't have much playability, maybe ok for a young 3 year old but not for long. Not good for a child who needs to be challenged, far too simple. I certainly would not recommend it. It has got all the fave characters and my daughter did enjoy it. for 20 minutes. Is that worth the money, i think not.
