I rented this game out for my 6 year old. Not only did she think it was cool to make her own princess, but loved the fact that it wasnt too hard. I think this game is great. My daughter played this for a good hour the first day it came. Then a couple days later she said "hey mom, I really want to play my game...please...please..please!!" So she was very interested in it. The only negative I would say about this game is that there are only 4 princesses. So if your daughter fav isnt one of them she might get upset...
I am always looking for titles that are both appropriate for my younger children (3.5 & 5.5) and have gameplay controls that they can use with little or no assistance. Its even better if the two of them can play onscreen at the same time. This game has all three.
Creating two princesses, my children played through the entire game with only limited help. (I sat with them and helped move the princess for my 3.5 year old.) Using the princess' magic wands was simple and fun for both and they were able to understand and complete the challenges.
Even after they have completed the game, they still ask to go back and 'visit' the princess.
The only negatives is that I should mention is that camera control was occasionally tricky as it follows player 1's princess and player 2's princess is sometimes left offscreen or in a spot where it is difficult for them to move. This applies to conversations as well...my 5.5 year would ask why his princess wasn't talking. The only other issue is the duration. We played it on several days, but it didn't seem like it was very long before it was done. The fact that you could go back and visit (and replay challenges) alleviates that, but a fully developed Belle (instead of a single challenge) would have made it a bit longer.
