Summary: The game is decent, however some of the tasks are a bit tedious or dare I say , boring. My daughter who is 9 played it a few times, but it is definitely not her favorite from this series. The girl character is blue eyed blonde. Not that this is a problem, however,it would be nice if the game a variety of characters that the child can choose to play as. Boys also may want to play at being a reporter and being able to choose would be nice.
Summary: My daughter received this for Christmas (on a Sunday) and by Tuesday had mastered it. She really enjoyed the game, and, yes, was plaing with her brand new DS excessively during that period of time, but I was disappointed that there was really no writing involved (for some reason, I was under the impression there was) and she 'beat' the game that quickly.
