An excellent game for young children 4-6. Our little one could play the game on her own with little instruction. It is short once the kids know how to play. No frustration as you can't really die in this game. Would love to see opportunity to use the gems that are collected by purchasing clothes for dressing up the princesses at the end. Currently you collect the gems but you can't do anything with them. A lovely game for little princesses.
I got this for my three nieces (all between 5-6 yr olds). All three of them really like the princesses, and all of them have played through at least part of the game now. One of them LOVED it, picked up the movements very quickly, loved the story, the mini games, dressing the princess, etc. I don't think there is any part of this game she wasn't absolutely thrilled with. The other two...not so much. One found the movements tricky to remember and got frustrated and bored very easily. The other was terrified of the idea of the bogs (they are the 'bad guys' in this game) to the point that she flat out refused to play for a while.
I had to explain that the bogs were just butterflies and couldn't hurt her character, even if she stood there and did nothing. (I checked to be sure, there is a bar that appears and loses color any time the bogs are around, but once it gets to the bottom, it just refills automatically and nothing happens to the players). She is enjoying it now, but get frustrated with some of the actions as well.
One very important thing to note - you have to play ALL of the princesses before you can unlock Belle. When you come back, be sure to play Belle before you go up the stairs again - if you do not, you cannot go back in and play Belle later, unless you play the entire game again (we learned this the hard way).
My daughter is 5, but she is a little slow to catch on sometimes(she's a little behind in kindergarten with letters, reading, etc). I read a review that said this game was way too easy for their daughter and that she had finished the game in 2 hrs. Well, it was perfect for my daughter. Some of the harder levels required my help - another great thing about the game - you can jump in as player 2 and the two of you run around together and you can help without her feeling like you're doing it for her. My daughter thought this was great fun and pretended we were best friends in the game.
Each level is a story about a different princess, and once we finished that level, she was able to run around and interact with the story very easily without having to do tasks.
Overall, this game is great for younger kids or kids with some learning disabilities.
We bought this hoping that our 3 and a half year old would be able to play it. She has done pretty well and can play as long as one of us is with her. The remote aspect is easy for all the need to do is wave the wand around the numchuck sometimes gets her stuck. It is not a long or that challenging of a game, but perfect for children who don't have a lot of experience with the wii. She asks to play the game and we usually play in half hour segments. She loves all the disney characters and really enjoys the game. I figure for [...], it wasn't that bad of a cost, the graphics were decent. One aspect I liked about the game was that each section (other than Belle's) game with three chapters each, so she could complete a chapter and then go back later to finish each section.
First of all, I cannot believe that this game has so few reviews. So, here I go. My four year old loves this game. As mentioned by others, this game does have a small learning curve, but overall my 4 1/2 year old did fine. Her older sisters helped her the first few plays and now she is fine.
My seven year old likes this game as well because she is into princesses and Disney. I would recommend this game for 4 to 6 year old girls in general.
My only complaint is that in two-player mode only ONE princess gets to wear the crown. This causes unnecessary envy and arguing, but it is also an opportunity to teach 'sharing' and 'taking-turns.' Overall, this is a good game for this age-group.
This is the first Wii game that my 6 year old daughter has played. She loves it and it was the perfect level for her skills -- she has beaten the game but it took a while. It was challenging but not overly so. She had fun going through the levels and "helping" the princesses. I personally wish there was more to it because now that she's beat all the levels she doesn't seem too interested in going back through it all. My 3 year old son tries to play with her, and the 2-player setting is kind of annoying, in my opinion. He can do some of it, but it's more for a 5-6 year old than a 3 year old.
First I thought this will be hard for my four years old girl. But at once she figure out even without an adult assistence. And she finished all the chapters within couple of days (except snow white chapter). Then I thought she is done with that. But I am wrong still she loves to play it. Her favourite chapter is Jasmine's chapter. Bad of this game is some times it take time to figure out what to do since there is no assistence where to go or what to do next. Some chapters doesn't work properly. My girl couldn't complete the snow white chapter since it stucked in the middle. There is a gate to go inside but still she couldn't go inside what ever she tried.
I gave this game to my daughter when she was almost 3 years old. The game is very simple, and she enjoys watching the stories every time a princess is found. Most of the movement in the game is done through the nunchuck, and the spells are done with the wii control. Both are easy to perform by a toddler. There are no super computer graphics or great plot behind this game, but for small children is good enough. If your daughter is starting to recognized Disney characters and loves Disney princesses, then you can't go wrong with this game, and it will keep your child entertain for a while.
