Summary: I bought this for my 5 year old. While it is an enjoyable game for children that age, there is almost nothing to it. She got through the game start to credits in WELL under a half hour. It would be a good game if there were more levels or chapters but once you find your 20 presents the game is over. I can see her playing this MAYBE once again before she becomes bored and the game gets put away for good.
Summary: my girls (4 and 5) got bored with this game pretty easy. there just isn't a whole lot going on in it. it doesn't teach anything and only takes about 30 mins to beat the whole game. they don't play it much.
Summary: Got this game as my daughter's first DS game for her 6th birthday. It was cute and she enjoyed it, but she "passed" it within about 2 hours. She played through the whole game again two more times (each time taking her only about 45 minutes) and then was totally bored with it. There is only one level and once you find all the gifts, and play with them, the game it finished. I think it would be great for a 4 year old, but was too young for my 6 year old.
