Summary: Navigation of this game was not intuitive, which is a major pet peeve of mine. After 20 minutes of trying to navigate through the insect game, we gave up in frustration. Before that, we played the math game which was OK. Not super fun, but not horrible, and it seemed to be on the appropriate grade level for an average 2nd grader. We moved on to the insect game and could not move beyond the first puzzle.
Summary: My daughter got into this game the first couple of days she had it and then sort of lost interest. The games feel like "homework" sometimes because they get a little difficult for her (but she's only in 1st grade!)...but she kind of likes it. The graphics and things could be better, but Reader Rabbit is a bit older of a game, so I expected this much. All in all, I still feel like it was worth the ten bucks!!
Summary: I was skeptical, but had to give the educational a try. It didn't take 5 minutes to see both my 4 & 5 yr old kids were effectively using and completing this game. Math parts were too much for a 4 yr old and only some were beyond my son (5). Language, word recognition, reading and sentence skill are not even being taught in school yet, but they were able to successfully engage and complete on their own after 5 minutes.
