TOP 500 REVIEWERon 9 September 2012
Some clever thinking and plenty of humour has gone into this software. Firstly there is an amazingly good race game on it - the whole family have had a huge amount of fun with that (and that's coming from a technophobe, anti-game couple). Secondly, there is an amazingly good ebook story which has some brilliant touches - including Finn McMissile's voice - an English accent that sounds just like Michael Caine, which I am sure is deliberate.

It has a sophistication and intelligence behind the whole package and excellent graphics, particularly on the ebook story, which is very interactive (hilarious!)

It is for age 5 to 7. Our little one is 4 and a half, but it is six months since he had his Innotab for his birthday and he needed a change from Toy Story (incidentally Toy Story is the only boys' cartridge for the 4 to 6 age group - there are three cartridges for girls in that age group! Ok so it's the modern world, but not many boys want Disney Princess and Dora the Explorer). He loves the film Cars 2, so even though it is aged 5 to 7 we got it. It's absolutely fine - stretches him a bit too, which is good. However, the maths is hard, and definitely over the level of a four and a half year-old. To be able to achieve a decent score in the race game, he has to be able to do the maths quickly - so we have to help him with that - but he's learning and picking up a lot, so this gives motivation to learn his sums - so he can win the race! The maths is only part of the winning formula - there are many other challenges too (all of which he is an expert at already).

Highly recommended - we managed to get it at £7 off the full price - which helps - these cartridges are expensive!

Very good entertainment for my 4 year old boy. He loves cars two so I got him this game to play on his inno-tab by v-tech. Would highly recommend.

I bought this for my four year old to go with his innotab max but it just won't work I checked the update list on vtechs website and it says it will work from 28th November 2014 ! Maybe they got the date wrong as it won't do anything other than say it's not compatible! I'm sending it back along with the Micky mouse cartridge I have bought in the hopes of a refund!

Should be zero stars. There is a technical problem with this - I've had the same problem as the other 1 star reviewer - I purchased this cartridge and Innotab Max for my son's Christmas present, but despite being sold as Innotab Max compatible and being on the compatible list, the device says that the cartridge is not compatible. I've spent several hours following the trouble-shooting instructions and also Vtech Innotab website, but nothing works. My son is very disappointed, and I can think of better ways to spend Christmas afternoon and Boxing Day morning apart from trying to get a cartridge to work!

I brought this for my 3 year old, he absolutely loves it, the best feature is the fact that you cant complete it but can carry on playing.

Bought this for my nephew for christmas and was extremely annoyed to find it does not work on all innotab systems like it says as it won't work on the innotab max so will be asking for a refund as the item is now no use and my 3 year old nephew has now been left with no game to play

My 5 year old kid loves it even his brother of 2 years old loves it, i'm glad i bought it for them. The only downside is that it is a bit expensive with postage and everything, it costed me 25 euro and when you consider that they are watching and playing the same games and reading the same e-book over and over again its not that worthed (for me as a parent) infact after spending almost a whole week watching it they lost interest in it, to buy lots of software of this kind its not worthed. I prefer the old fashioned way board games and real books, they learn much more, it's unfortunate that nowadays kids need these things :o(

This is the first game I've bought for the innotab so I have nothing to compare it to apart from the ones you download off the website and it is much better value than those. My sons been playing it since christmas and still enjoying it. There's a good balance of educational games and ones that are just ordinary games like the racing one. There's also a book included. Most of the educational element has been fine for my 5 year old apart from some of the sums you have to do on one game,which are for an older child.
