Summary: I purchased this game for my 3 year old son that is pretty savvy to video games. He always watches his older brother play video games, so I decided to purchase him a game for a family trip that only he could enjoy. He has enjoyed playing it still a month later.
Summary: My 3yo son has 3 big sisters who all play games on the DS. Of course little brother doesn't want to be left out, but it was so difficult to find an age appropriate game he could play. He knows how to use a DS but didn't have a game that was at his skill level. Then I found Smart Boys Game Room 2. It's perfect! He can navigate the game all by himself and it keeps him entertained with no help needed from anyone else (like when we're riding in the car.
Summary: I bought a DSi XL and Gameroom 1 and 2, and Let's Draw! for my almost three year old son for Christmas as means of preventing him from destroying my wife's and mine cell phones which he learned to unlock and play games on and, occasionally, make international phone calls. He enjoys Gameroom 2, but not so much the original Gameroom, which is a much simpler game with not so good graphics.
Summary: My 3 year old son got this for Christmas. He plays with his other toys for a little while, then wants to return to this game. It is easy for him to play with by himself without much guidance from us. His big sister has a DS too and so he can play his DS without having to ask for help to pass levels. I can see that it has helped with his independence! Great little game with no violence! Many games targeted for boys are violent gun games!
Summary: I purchased this game for my son for Christmas. I was hoping for more of a fun type of learning, but my son has played it (maybe) twice. He would still much rather play the Pokemon games that grandma and grandpa bought. It is a cute game however and I love the fact that a lot of the DS games are educational, to a point.
