Summary: I am a 42 year old man. I found this game to be far too challenging. After 12 minutes of flailing around, I found myself overstimulated and broke my Kinect out of frustration. That's why I'm not allowed back at my sister's place until I buy another Kinect for my nephew.
Summary: My daughter wants to *desperately* play this game. I think the Kinect part of this game is poorly done, my daughter can't get the pages to open and there is no way to skip the intro every time you start it. This is very frustrating to her and me as I can't get them open either. She loves Elmo but this game is a bust.
Summary: We were excited about this game and it looked beautiful when it started. But we wanted to sign in my daughter and that's when the trouble started ... we kept trying to sign out a profile and it went into a loop where we couldn't sign out the current profile. So I quit the game and signed in as my daughter and restarted the game.
Summary: It has the usual inaccuracy and frustrating controls of any Kinect game. However, the most disappointing aspect is the terrible game design. The game requires you to log onto an xbox profile but of course my 4-year old doesn't have an xbox profile. If I sign in as me, it expects to see me in front of the screen, not him. Which means I can play this stupid freaking game, but he can't. That's ok - he's losing interest anyway.
Awful. Shortest game ever! My 4-year old made it thru the book in the 1st hour!

Summary: OK, are we missing something on the game? You start it, it doesn't allow you to SKIP the opening sequence with Elmo and Cookie Monster... then, it goes to the same book with 6 or so games? That's it??? My 4-year old made it thru them in the first hour! Then it tries to get you to sign up with XBox Live so you can d'load other material! What? This is the shortest game ever! We've been playing Kinectimals for months.. now IT's a great game.
Summary: This game is horrible. We couldn't turn the pages and get past the beginning. I'm selling it on Craigslist because it just put my daughter in a bad mood. They need to test the product to see if it works before selling it to the public. It's supposed to be fun and it just doesn't work!
Summary: My husband got me a Kinect for Christmas and I was really excited! We have a four-year-old and I bought this game so that we could play together. If the game were more user friendly for little ones it would be SO much fun! It's short but there are great activities in each part of the story. The Kinect doesn't recognize her and I both at the same time so she has to play alone. When she does, her movements are not recognized correctly.
Summary: This game does not track my tall four year-old or my short six year-old at ALL. They can't even "pull the tabs" to open the pages without a struggle. If a parent participates it is slightly better, but we have never gotten past the first three scenes because it is emotionally exhausting. Also, I would like to note that on an educational level, I found this a HUGE missed opportunity.
