Excerpt: My 8-year old son got this game for Christmas and he loves it. He has to ask us how to spell a lot of words, but that's okay because he's learning to spell words that he doesn't already know. I like the educational aspect of the game. My son just thinks it's fun to play.
Summary: My daugther wanted this game and hasn't put it down since it arrived. I can say that it helps her to spell words so there is an element of education involved so I don't feel "mommy guilt" at letting her play her Nintendo for long periods!
Summary: My son desperately wanted to buy this game for his DS. I am anti video games and highly discouraged him not to. Yet he has his own money and so he won out. I have been highly satisfied with the purchase. I like that it teaches spelling and rewards one's spelling attempts with results.
Summary: I ordered this game to go with my 9yo son's first DS. I debated between Scribblenauts and Scribblenauts 2, but ultimately went with the original. It is a HUGE hit! He loves finding ways to solve the challenge. It gives you the option to replay a challenge, earning more points by being more creative.
Summary: My daughter purchased this game through Amazon at a great, discounted price and absolutely loves it! She is 6 and enjoys the spelling & creativity this game has to offer. It's worth the money!
Summary: This is one of those you 'don't have to feel guilty as a mom for letting your kid play video games' game! It helps begging readers and writers hone their spelling skills, and allows kids to use their imagination to problem solve. We will definately be getting the second version of this!
