Great, but not for younger ones
on 10 January 2010
I love this game, or I would if I could play it alone! I bought it for my 4 year old, who cannot read yet, but she loves it so we have to play it together. The graphics are lovely and the amount of detail amazing. However it is too hard for the younger ones. I find it hard to create a map in my mind of where all the fairies live and who I've got to visit to do something. I went to the jewel mine once and I'm blowed if I can find it again (and I have a PhD!!!). My daughter loves it and will sit with me for an hour playing together, with me directing the play and her giving appropriate seeds to fairies and helping with the tasks. The DS is great, but you get neck ache after a while sharing it! A lovely game that I would play myself, but there is an awful lot of complicated (i.e. not cat, mat, dog) reading for young children.
