This game is way too short, even for a three year old. The controls are okay for young ones (just left and right tilt plus the 2 button). The graphics are poor, and the voice animation is horrible - no attempt was made to coordinate: i a character is talking, their mouth just moves in a random fashion.
Very annoying is the constant cutscenes, as you approach a "new" challenge which 9/10 involves a long talk just to explain that you once again push the "2" button so Boots can do something.
Another big turnoff is the "backpack" and "map" portions, which require you to tilt the remote to pick the right item. However, because the game insists on talking every time you pick an item "Is this the way to blah blah blah?", and because it is easy to tilt instead of pushing the button, it can be a very frustrating experience for little ones.
The game itself is /very/ repetitive, which is not always a big drawback for little ones, but can grate on the adults helping out! :)

My daughter is 4 years old and she loved it. It was really easy to play. It took a few tries before she was able to play on her own, but after that she played all by she self serveral times. its even better if you have a childs remote.
