Summary: I bought this for my daughter who's 5 almost 6 and it's perfect for her. She loves all the little games including the drawing, painting, decorating, and making music. There's pretty much no reading, other than the game titles, which is good because she's not quite there yet. I would highly recommend this for girls 4 to 8.
Summary: I was looking for a game with a lot of different fun choices in one spot and that is easy enough for my 5 year old to operate on her own without being able to read. This is it! Graphics are not spectacular, but it is good enough for her. Some of the games are a little difficult for even me, but I think that will make it last longer as she grows out of the easier ones. There are coloring pages and simple puzzles too, which seem to be her favorites right now.
Summary: I bought this game for my nearly 6 year old daughter. She received many other games as gifts, but this is the one she loves. Not too complicated, not boring either. No reading involved. I think there are 15-18 mini-games. She loves the coloring pages, the "when I grow up" game, planting flowers, and decorating the rooms. Great for 3-7 year old girls.
Summary: So I actually decided to give my kids an early Christmas present and they now love their DS more than me! I read some great reviews on Smart Girl's Playhouse and after doing some research, decided to get my daughter the new sequel, Smart Girl's Party Game. My 5 year old daughter has been literally glued to her seat playing this game. I was actually going through the game myself and by far, this has been one of my best investments.
