Summary: I rented this game for my five year old and had to return it but she loved it so much that I ordered it now for her as a Christmas gift. She is 6 now and she loves everything about Barbies! I think that the game is challenging for anyone younger then 5.
Summary: I bought this game after my 5-year old daughter played with the Disney Enchanged Journey game for a month. The graphics are great and the game is easy to learn and good to play in 30-minute stints. The controls are easy to learn for small kids.
Summary: I don't know about these other reviews; maybe parents interjecting on their kid's behalf. My 5 year old daughter loves this game and has no troubles. She can play it by herself just fine. This and Mario Party8 are her favorite choices amongst the games we own!
