Summary: My Pet Shop is mainly a children's game, but it is actually surprisingly challenging and addictive. Pros: Great graphics for this kind of game, it's pretty upbeat, there is a wide selection of animals to catch, it has a nicely paced storyline, and it is GREAT for completionists. Cons: The music was real hit-or-miss, this game may be a bit TOO challenging for kids, it was VERY repetitive, and its reply-value is a bit questionable.
Summary: I got this game because of all the reviews saying it was great for 5 year olds. I purchased it here, because it was a great price. It is a little difficult for my 5 year old. She gets frustrated and board. Her 8 year old sister helps her and tried playing it, but it was to kiddish for her.
Summary: My 9 year old got 5 games for Christmas and this was the one that she was least interested in. When she did finally get around to it, she was surprised that she actually did like it! It's not as good as the Animal Crossing or the original Tinker Bell, but it did pass the kid test!
Summary: I bought this for my 11 year old daughter as she loves the Cooking Mama games. She loved it, and even I got into playing it. Extremely cute game but make sure your kids understand that pet shops do not get their animals by shaking them out of trees. That diffusing bombs does not magically produce fruit to give to your pet. Never to go into the woods alone looking for stray pets.
Conclusion: daughter absolutely loves this game - plenty of tasks to do and build up a stock of pets to give away, sell care for etc nice graphics and easy enough to follow for your average 7 -10 year old. cant complain for a tenner - bargain !!!!
My pet shop DS game was not as good as made out to be!

Conclusion: Many people have put in their review that My pet shop was a great and different pet game! I have to disagree because in the game you just do the same thing over and over again and it gets very boring! You dont have to look for animals very often and when you do it is not exciting you dont do anything you just waiy until they come to you! It is not too expensive but i would keep your money and spend it on a better game!
Conclusion: My 6 1/2 year old LOVES this and gets on easily with it. Finding new pets, earning points to buy things, what most little girls love to do. Highly recommended! A game parents don't have to help with, what a relief.
