Summary: I bought this game for my 3 and 5 year old granddaughters. They both love it. Even though the 3 year old can't read, she does follow directions. She has also figured out that there is a time limit on the games so she has to pay attention. Both girls love making money to go shopping.
Summary: We are new to DSi and our 8 year old had quite a problem with some other games that were just too difficult to figure out (for someone who has never played video games before). This one has been perfect and she has played with it for hours. While it is not difficult, it is not a "baby" game either.
Summary: I bought this for my five year old daughter and she loves it! She isn't a strong reader yet so I was looking for something that wasn't going to be too difficult. She is able to easily play this game by herself. She espcially enjoys putting her own design on the clothes.
Summary: I bought this for my 5 year old daughter for Christmas since she is always after me to play my DS & I don't really have games she is capable of yet. Once she got this game in the system I have to fight her to put it down!
Summary: My daughter is 6 years old and has played this game non-stop since we got it for her. There is minimal reading, only instructions on how to play mini-games and once they figure it out, they don't need to read instructions anymore. :) I would highly recommend this for a girl under 10.
