There are princesses and a few very east puzzle.
If you can get it for cheap, sure but full price, it doesn't worth it since it has no replay value.

This game is so wonderful! The graphics are rich and detailed, as good as any Disney film. There is none of the jagged pixelation or "stutters" of the graphics in some of the children's games we have for the Wii. The minute the game started, both my daughter and I got sucked right into it. My daughter played and I watched and helped when necessary. The gameplay is very intuitive and easy to figure out, but challenging enough that it's not boring.
Instead of being thrown right into the action when the game starts, the game is like a movie or a storybook- a backstory is presented, and your character is brought through a magical castle as she is introduced to both the goal of the game and how to play the game. Yes, there is a "dress up" part at the very start of the game- and it's really lovely and well done. Gameplay is "filmed" from many angles so as your character moves through scenes, it almost feels as if you are there, with her.
The "Enchanted Journey" itself is basically a quest to assist several of Disney's most beloved Princesses- Ariel, Snow White, Jasmine, and Cinderella. Your character is escorted into each of their "worlds" (which are richly illustrated, animated, and scored) and given small tasks to do in order to help the Princesses out. Almost all tasks in the game are completed by waving the Wii remote like a magic wand- there are several different motions, and each does a specific kind of magic.
I have to admit, I'm not a fan of kid's games at all but I got sucked into this one instantly. It almost felt like being on a ride at Disney. The music, the colors, the animation... it's all really well done.
No, it's not a long, time-consuming game. The tasks are simple. For each Princess, there are about three tasks to accomplish. For an older child, this won't take long. But for a little girl, it's perfect. There's enough to see and do in this game besides the gameplay that it makes the game well worth the money.
If you are remotely on the fence about buying this for your Disney Princess fan, just do it.
This game is great for them. The 6 year old can play this by herself without adult assistance which rates this game very high on my list. the 4 year old loves it, but requires some help since the movement around requires use of the toggle on the nunchuk, and that requires some dexterity she hasn't perfected yet.
the only thing that gets them is that if it's being played without adult assistance, then sometimes the boggs can surround the character can trap it, and the kids get quickly upset that they're being trapped and attacked.
There is no killing in this game, the characters just loose magic on a meter, and the boggs turn into butterflies, so it's pretty harmless.
the length of game is ok, the 6 year old has now beaten the game, with some help, in about 4 hours.
I would recommend for young girls, but just realize that some dexterity is required since it requires use of both hands plus the left thumb at the same time.
UPDATE: My 6 year old can now beat the game by herself now without assistance in about 3 hours. Doesn't stop her, she's played it all the way through 3 times in the last week. She says it is still SO much fun, so it hasn't lost it's appeal. I am hoping that I can find another game that requires similar skill levels. Also, this game has a pretty detailed, verbally narrated story line that they like, so there isn't any required reading of tiny cramped font words for young kids.
I frankly am concerned that playing a video game like this is bad for my daughter, since it does not allow for much, if any, player creativity. It's kind of like if you watched a princess disney movie and, every 5 minutes, you had to swing a controller over your head for 60 seconds to get the movie to resume. Is that fun? Is that challenging? Is that even a game? I am skeptical.
