Hard for toddlers
5 March 2015
Summary: This game is cute for toddlers but, my child is as tall as a 4 year old but moves a lot and this game didn't pick up his movement very well. Every time he would wave I would have to enter the game to get it to start then it would lose him again. He ended up getting too frustrated with this game so now it just sits there. I haven't had problems with other kinect games and my toddlers I think the sensitivity is off on this one.
Summary: This game was bought for a 4yo, 3yo, and 2yo. The 2yo danced and enjoyed seeing the characters. The 4yo & 3yo played and although some of the tasks were a little confusing to them at first...once they got the hang of it all they had a blast.
Summary: Not sure if it was the connect sensor or the game but it was extremely difficult for the kids to play. They lost interest pretty quickly. I do like the concept and it seems like it could be fun if you have the right setup and children with a bit of patience.
designed for toddlers but the kinect has issues recognizing the toddler motions
14 March 2013
Summary: Ok, so the game itself should be tons of fun for my 3 year old (who is the size of an average 4 yr old girl). However, the kinect has issues picking up her movements because her limbs are much smaller than the average kid. Also, toddlers tend to move quickly as well, which also plays some part in the kinect's inability to recognize her movements. She needs to move slower, but she is only 3 and can't really maintain that kind of control.
Summary: The ideas here are really neat, and the kids *desperately* want to like this game. I just don't think the Kinect is designed for very young kids. My 3-year-old can play Cosmic Family on the Wii with only a little help, but getting the sensor to actually recognize her and let her play this has been an uphill battle of frustration and disappointment. Sometimes it sees her without incident, but a lot of the time it just doesn't even notice that she's there.
Summary: Bought this for my 5 year old, we both struggle to understand the characters who are not clear at all. Bought this as it was age appropriate, but should have stuck to Adventures and Sports for her.
Summary: The age group is 3+, however we feel it more suited to 5+, our 3 1/2 year old is intelligent and picks things up quickly - but this took some while, however her sister is almost 6 and seemed to pick it up quicker - however the page turning & entering chapters took some patience! With the exception of the above however we found it a good program. This is the first item we've written a review about - but feel it worth letting other purchasers know our feedback.
