My first bit with this game is that the achievements cannot be unlocked. I made it through most of the game, and never unlocked a single achievement. I completed every race that was required, and finished first place. The game is definately on a young childs level. If you are not worried about raising your gamer score then give this one a try.

This game is actually pretty hard. especially for little kids. The characters are suitable for children, but difficulty doesnt match. I own over 15 racing games, and this is the hardest one ive ever played. If you get it just to do fun little races here and there, you might like it. although it gets boring really quick. If you plan on actualy doing the full version story mode, and really playing the game, and getting achievments, I would not recommend it. The camera view is not very good. Its difficult to pass some of the races and tasks, therefore you cannot unlcuk th rest of the events in the game. also the cars are difficult to control. They slide off the road easily even when powersliding and tilting. I would not recommend this to anyone. Not worth the money. If you want a really fun racing game for kids, Thats easy to do try, Sonic All-stars racing. :) Its very similiar to mario kart, and very easy to get the hang of.
This is one of the best adaptations of "from film to game" video games I have ever seen. The game play is great the open ended environment is great more of a go as you please game play. This game is not just for kids, ant fan of the film will find it great to play with mater and lightning and others from the film. A great game overall.
