I really liked this game. I like to play without a lot of time pressure. This game takes the pressure off and lets young and old gamers just explore and try out the challenges as they're ready. It is meant for girls, but the activities would be acceptable to young boys too. You do have to be a reader, but the directions are easy and clear. If you're older and looking for games to play on your DS this one will remind you of being in a girl (or boy) scouts club from the good old days. If you're a really great gamer, definitely skip this one. But for a slower pace , younger kids or new gamers it's a very pleasant experience!
