This game has very little actual game playing involved. It is mostly an elephant telling you what to click on. Sometimes there will be a simple game such as assembling a puzzle or choosing the right shape to fill a hole. More often, the object clicking results in a short cartoon skits. Most of the skits are humorous. The main point of the title seems to be following directions.

It is relaxed, no timers or penalties for clicking the wrong things, no reading involved. There are three levels of difficulty, all of which are pretty easy. I'd rate it for kids ages 2 to 4. I gave it a Good rating of 7 because for those young ages, it is a great choice. This game is not meant for adults.

Cosmic Family has no replay value to anyone old enough to remember things from day to day. My 5 and 7 year olds played through the whole thing on the same the day we rented it and lost interest.

We rented this game for my 5 year old son, and in the past he has had a hard time navigating games because of the on screen text--it was difficult for him to know what to do, as he is just now learning to read. This game gives excellent audio instructions, and my son had no trouble at all knowing what to do next. Each step of the way, a voice would tell him the specific steps he needed to do, for example, "point your wii remote to the picture of the flower and press the a button to get to the next game". The games were very age appropriate, such as shape matching, patterns, color recognition, etc. I would highly recommend this game to anyone with small children. Another additional plus, is that there are harder levels, if you have older children, and the games become more challenging. I have put in an alert to purchase this game when it becomes available, that's how much we enjoyed it.

This is a great game for kids 4-6. Most of the titles that appear appropriate for this age group have timers and other features that frustrate these kids. Cosmic Family was the one title (of many attempted) that kept the attention of my 5 year old and her friends. There aren't many out there; this is a great option.
