Summary: My grandson at 3 1/2 didn't play this video at all. Now that he's 4, he has shown great interest in figuring out the tasks that Sam must do to get thru the woods. Little by little he is getting further along in the game. I think it is colorful and well animated. Not sure if I would label it educational : more about reasoning and solving problems.
Summary: Pajama Sam was always a computer favorite, and now the kids are enjoying it on the Wii. It is actually quite a bit easier to navigate in this format. Even my 9 year old has had a good time with it.
Summary: I purchased this game for my 17-year old daughter because it reminded her of the computer game she used to play with a neighbor when they were younger. Yes, it is a bit juvenile for her. However, it filled that place in her that only this particular game could. If you have a younger child, they will love it. It is not scary, but fun.
Summary: Bought this game for my 7 year old, based on the reviews. This game is kind of slow for us, but my 7 year old likes it enough, i guess. Maybe it gets more exciting as you go higher in levels, but for us, it's nothing special.
Summary: As a mom of 4, ages 2, 4 (twins) and 5 when we acquired this game, it is a family favorite. Like the PC games, it is a point and click based game, but it does require some critical thinking skills. One section of the game play requires reading, but other than that, my children were able to play this mostly on their own. You have the ability to save multiple games - handy if each child has their own game, it is a single player game.
Great game. I still play it even though I'm 20 years old!

Summary: I first played this game way back when I had like Windows 95 or 98 and was looking to update and decided to go with the Wii version. The Wii version is essentially the same as the original, which was a fun game, even today being a 20 year old. It's fun for kids of all ages to play but the game is quite short once you get the hang of it and play it a few times.
Summary: I was concerned about some of the reviews indicating this game was just a "point and click" type of adventure, but it's not. You have to use your mind to actively solve puzzles (e.g., how to cross the river in a boat that doesn't believe it will float) that are challenging even to an adult mind. I confess I had to look up some "hints" online to solve some of the puzzles. My 5 1/2 year old loved this game, but I did too. Definitely worth playing!
