I bought this game as a present for my niece, who is five and a half. I wanted to buy her something that provided a lot of variety, as she has quite a short attention span and this game incorporates lots of different games. Not necessarily educational, but lots of fun! A great game for someone of her age.
Many of these games are really great, and my 3, 4, 7 and 8 year olds (and me actually!) have been enjoying playing them as there are 3 different ability levels. However, some of them are a bit touchy in terms of the stylus control, you can easily press twice if you hold the stylus down a fraction of a second too long, which if you are trying to do a pattern, clearly can end up with you getting it wrong which is very frustrating. Also, there's a 'pick up sticks' game, which I couldn't pick up one stick on the first level. That said, there are also lots of great, educational games with counting that are not so reliant on this aspect and so I would certainly recommend it for more experienced 'gamers'!
I bought this for my 7 year old girl and she loves it. As there are 3 levels to each game, she can work at her own level.There are different types of games, spot the difference, sudoku, hangman, jigsaws and more - all themed around animals and safari. Some of the games are very similar to each other.
I find myself picking it up and getting quite addicted too!!
Bought this game for my son who has the Nintendo Ds and loves playing games. Overall this is a good DS game to buy. The minus points for me are that there are some games on it which are on a timer and in a matter of seconds the game is over if you do not solve it within a certain amount of attempts which can be a little soul crushing for little ones trying to do well. On the other hand, my son has learned loads from it and obviously has favourite games on it which he will play again and again.
