Summary: I wish I would have read the reviews first, but we were quickly getting my son a Mario game when my 6 year old saw this one. It was priced well and it's Tinkerbell, so obviously I thought it would be fine for her. But unless your child reads well, it's a bust. There are 4 mini-games, but 1 has to be downloaded....so that stinks. I'm not very techy or into DS games so I want the ones that kids can just put in and figure out easily.
Summary: My daughter LOVES the game, however, I am very disappointed. The reading is much too difficult for her so I end up sitting with her reading every single thing the fairies say. This is how you know what to do next. Basically, you click on a fairy, read what she says, then fly through five different screens to find the next fairy who tells you you should have done something else, at a different part of the forest. It is so boring.
Summary: My soon-to-be 7-year old daughter got this for Christmas. She wouldn't play it, saying, "it's too hard." I finally got a chance to get on it, thinking if I figured it out, I could help her. Well, it's a fun game... if you are a good reader. This game is PERFECT for 9 and up! There is a lot of reading involved. Each fairy character tells you things, either helping you out, or telling you of a task to do. A child who is not actively reading yet would get very discouraged.
Summary: I bought this as an add on Christmas gift. My four year old got a DS XL for Christmas and we got this as she loves Tink. The game play actually isn't that bad. It is simple for the most part. However it doesnt read what the fairies say out loud, which actually tells the player where to go and what to do. So now we have to sit and read and play with her.
Summary: I bought this game this year for my eight year old for a gift..As mentioned, there is loads of reading and truthfully its not geared for an eight year old normal reading level anyhow...The mini games are extremely hard..I played them and as adult had a hard time let alone a young child..Was a waste of money..It says basic reading skills are needed to enjoy this game..This isn't basic reading skills...Theres nothing but reading...When you make the clothing.
