I rented this game primarily for my youngest who just turned 5. He found the mini-games boring and repetitive and beat the game in less than an hour. That didn't bother him until he realized that the game doesn't change when you continue. Within 2 hours of receiving the game, he was ready to return it. I gave the game a "4" because the characters are very appealing and the concept of the game was intriguing for him.
This is one great way to get your kids to learn and how to teach them to think. It is hard to get a kid(s) to sit down and learn. But with this it will get them to do just that. My 6 and 4 year old loves the game and I had to just get it for them. It not only has a story mode for them but it is really simple for them to play it. It really teaches them hand-eye coordination but it does it within Mini-games. Our kids played this game for hours (3 hours). I had to make them outside because the game was driving me crazy. But if you want your kid(s) to learn get this game for them and get it here at Gamefly.
