Summary: I thought it would be good for an 8-year-old, but probably better for a 5-6 year old. The "animation" it advertises is not user generated. The program will just make the drawings move. Also you can only store a few drawings.
Summary: When I bought this for my 8 year old daughter I thought it would be much more interactive - the description said that things she drew would come to life and she would be able to use the characters she had drawn in games. There are only about 4 or 5 mini games and only 4 items that she can draw that come to life - all animals that have to be copied from a master.
