Summary: Overall the video is suitable for 3 -5 year olds, anyone older would soon get bored, but for that age it appears to be just right. It's educational as well as enjoyable. It doesn't take my grandson long to complete the various tasks so we only have it on for between one and two hours at a time, any longer than that and he tends to get bored. Overall its reasonable entertainment for 3 - 5 year olds.
Conclusion: The genius of this game is that it is aimed at 4-8 year olds, and is excellent for hand-eye coordination, problem-solving, and has music and dancing segments that made my sons start dancing around the room, they found this game extremely user friendly (took about 5 minutes to get the hang of it), and there's an elephant you can click if you get stuck. There's puzzles, interactive games, and a family that lives in rocket ship...what can be cooler than that?

Using the controller is quite intuitive for little hands, for example navigating the game brings to mind using a mouse as the pointer changes when something selectable appears, whilst in some games, dragging and dropping items (for example, decorating...
