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.
