You'll spend most of your time creating toys. There are 4 seasons lasting 31 days per year. As you get better at making certain toys, not only does the time it takes you to make them go down, so does the amount it costs you to make the toy. In each of the seasons, different toys are popular. For Spring, you'll need to have lots of teddy bears. For Fall, you'll want masks and costumes. If you talk to Michael in the Shopping District, he'll make you special clothes to wear for each season, this is free. If you talk to the neighbor kids after you've successfully made a new toy for the shop, they'll ask if they can try it out. If you say yes, this will help get the word out about the new toy. The more toys you make, the more new toys will appear that you can try to make. And each season unlocks a few toys of its own. Some toys you can only unlock by talking to the townspeople however. So be sure to spend a few days each season doing so!

Not so good

My son doesn't like this game. He says that when you make toys, you aren'y always successful. You have to have a certain number of skill points to increase your chances to make toys. In order to get skill points, you have to keep practicing over and over again at making the same toys. It gets very tedious. The days are short and you only have a little time before your day is over and you have to go to bed. The furniture for you to buy costs a lot, and you have to keep churning out toys in order to upgrade. Again, its the repitition that is causing the problem.

I did not enjoy this game. Not only ere the instructions poorly constructed, it got boring doing the same thing. I sent this game back after just two days and hoped for a better game to come after that one.
