This is the first game my five-year old daughter could play without bursting into tears! She actually did better without me helping her.
We are new to the Wii, and the other games we tried were just too difficult. I see that a lot of reviewers complained about the skill repetition, but I feel it was helpful for us in learning and succeeding at the moves. And the scenes are too cute!
This is one I would buy for my daughter -- she loves it!
