My son aged 4.5 had this is as a gift. He learnt to move around the "classroom" very quickly and loves listening to the clues given by the escapee hamster to work out where he is hiding. He also likes the rewards given for completing activities: a chance to take a photo on the farm and fill up an album with moving cartoons. Another of his favourites is "bursting balloons" on a climbing frame, following a pattern of letters spoken very clearly by the narrator rabbit. Altogether a very good choice for someone about to go to school.
