This review is from: Junior Brain Trainer DS (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
Having read several of the reviews on Junior Brain Trainer I thought it worth pointing out the difference between the 6 - 11 age range in the product description and the 3+ PEGI logo on the front of the packaging.
The Pan-European Game Information (PEGI) age rating system was established to help European parents make informed decisions on buying computer games. It was launched in spring 2003 and replaced some national age rating systems with a single system now used throughout most of Europe.
What do the labels mean?
PEGI age rating labels appear on front and back of the packaging at one of the following age levels - 3+, 7+, 12+, 16+ and 18+. They provide a reliable indication of the suitability of the game CONTENT in terms of protection of minors. The age rating DOES NOT take into account the DIFFICULTY LEVEL or SKILLS required to play a game.
PEGI 3+ - The content of games given this rating is considered suitable for all age groups. Some violence in a comical context (typically Bugs Bunny or Tom & Jerry cartoon-like forms of violence) is acceptable. The child should not be able to associate the character on the screen with real life characters, they should be totally fantasy. The game should not contain any sounds or pictures that are likely to scare or frighten young children. No bad language should be heard and there should be no scenes containing nudity nor any referring to sexual activity.
My 8 year old daughter and 10 year old son both play this game and both find it equally challenging!
Quick update, have just got Junior Classic Games Junior Classic Games (Nintendo DS) for my daughter off the back of an email suggesting I might also like it, and she thinks it's great.
