Very disappointed,dull,lazy content.
on 11 February 2012
I personally think this game should be freely installed in the leapster. Our 5yo daughter loves to draw and colour and decided on this as a first addition to the console. She likes (not loves) it but unfortunately I have the relatively rare feeling that I've been ripped off by Leapfrog. The game is pushing £30 and is absolutely basic. It has pictures that can be coloured but are ridiculously poor and uninspiring for a child of any age. You can find far better colouring apps on lots of children's websites. The game contains the same over long repetive narratives that are in the other games. I think these are there to fill out the lazily put together content and are so dull it's easy to lose interest in waiting for the main "action." Our daughter has mainly used the game to rub out the installed (shockingly bad) pictures and then draw her own. Mail order is a hit and miss affair so I tend to just roll with the occasional punch but at this price, added to the leapster breaking down after 5weeks, I'm absolutely incensed!
We bought two other games,(in the sales thankfully),hoping they'd be better but they're just as bad, monotonous, narrative padded and I'll use the word again..lazy. Over a hundred pounds all in all and I have better laid out games on my cheap, works mobile phone than on this which incidentally our child finds fun and still works after a year!
My wife said get her a DS, I said she may be a little young yet but I should have listened.
