I bought this game for a great price ($19.99), but soon learned that it was not worth it. My daughter is seven-years-old and I got her a DS for Christmas. She has an Xbox 360 with Kinect as well, so this is not her first gaming system. She also has a Mobi-Go and a Leapster, and I wanted to get her something that would more aptly challenge her little mind, so I got the DS. This game's product description made it sound as if there were many levels of play and I thought that it would be fun for her on those long car rides. When she first plugged this game into her DS, it was cute and had decent activities without the violence or explicitness found in most other games. Your child can pick a character and then travel through the land helping friends find their pets and making gifts for them. After visiting about ten or so friends, and helping them locate their lost pets, my daughter found that there was nothing else to do in this game. That was it. It was over. She traveled back through the game and re-visited the friends, but the only thing left to do was make the pets happy by brushing, feeding, and petting them. This can go on forever, if your child does not get bored with it first. It took my daughter one day to complete this game, and since then she doesn't spend more than a couple of minutes on it before changing to another game. We got a couple of hours of use from this game before it was placed back in its case and put on her media shelf. Which is where it has been ever since. I am not happy with this product, or how easy it was to complete. It was not worth the $20, in my opinion. This game might be more apt to captivate a younger audience's attention for a longer period of time, but I would not recommend it for older children. It is easy to complete, and does not take much time do so. After that, it is just repetitive. So if you are looking for a game to challenge your child, this one isn't it. However, it is age appropriate for younger children and does not contain offensive or violent language or activities. It is a cute game, it just has no real point.
