Summary: Maddeningly frustrating! Some of the mini-games don't seem to work properly, as they are incapable of remembering their own patterns. My 5 year old daughter, who is no video game slouch, can't grasp most of the gameplay. Even with my help (I'm no slouch, either), we couldn't make the game function properly.
Summary: I agree with the other reviewers. My 6 yr. old daughter got this as a birthday present and was so excited to play it. It was DEFINITELY NOT created for the Wii system. Game play is constantly interrupted by having to load new screens, which takes forever. It is very difficult for her to navigate and figure out which remote to use from game to game. It requires a nunchuk for some games but not others, and often the nunchuk doesn't end up working for its intended purpose.
Summary: I read some other reviews (on other sites) and so was forewarned about this game. Still, I rented the game for my four and seven year old daughters. They both hated it and asked me to return it the same day! They complained that the game was too difficult. I offered to help them play it, but they were so frustrated that they had lost interest. Try Disney Princesses instead, if you need a game for girls ages 4 to 6.
Summary: My mother in law bought this for our 5 year niece old. She was very excited as she loves Barbie and she loves playing Wii Sports, Carnival and Making Miis. However this game is terrible on the Wii and she was soon frustrated and angry. The Wiimote is only used in about 25% of the games and cannot be used to navigate the game menus. Our niece was very frustrated and confused because she could not understand what controller to use when.
