Summary: If you are looking for something that a toddler can play with minimal adult help, this is for you. The games are quite simple, but for the very young only. older children... say 4 and up will get bored somewhat easily because there is no challenge for them... this game has competition free games like coloring and dress up and they can be played in a 1 - 5 minute span so short attention spans aren't a big issue either!
Summary: not what I thought it was its just mini games I wanted a game she could decorate her own house not in a mini game and dress her dolls and play with them maybe mini games but she couldn't do any of that and got tired of the game very quickley
Summary: I got this for my daughter the summer before she was going into kindergarten for a road trip. She liked the game but was done with it in about 30 minutes. When I encouraged her to play it one time, she said it was ok, but she already knew everything. I looked at the game and it seemed to be way under her level but a good game. I believe this is a great game for preschoolers but not for advanced preschoolers or kindergarteners.
Summary: Buy this if it is the first game your young (3 or 4 year old) child will own for their DS. It is quite simple, but fun enough to get them acclimated to a hand held game system without frustrating them. Only 4 stars because most kids will probably out grow it quickly.
