Summary: One thing I want to make clear right now, since I was confused about this until I got the game, is that this version has BOTH the original cats and the new bears included. The original release of the game on disc had only cats, and there was downloadable content on Xbox Live that added the bears for $15. Now for $14.99 (as of this writing) you can have both cats and bears! I got this game for my almost 4 and almost 7 year old daughters, and they both love it.
Summary: This is the cutest game. Both my kids (5 & 8) love playing it. It's not as exciting as other games, but the pets are SO adorable, we find ourselves just sitting there watching our kids pet them and take care of them. There are also challenges to participate in and medals to be won. Great, great game for maybe a younger sibling who always watches his/her older siblings playing video games but isn't old enough to really join in. I would really recommend it.
Summary: I found this while searching for games that my grandchildren would like for the new XBOX they were getting for Christmas. Even though I paid for overnight shipping, it did not arrive for Christmas. It's difficult to explain to a 3 year old why the box they opened had only a picture on a piece of paper. Amazingly she got it! When she got the real gift 4 days after Christmas she loved it. Now she has her OWN game for the new XBOX.
