Definitely for children

I review games and when I see a popular kids title sometimes I like to throw that into my pile. I had no idea what to expect from this game since all I knew about it was seeing the toys at the store. I gave it a try just to kind of mark where kids games are.

This game is for small children and I'm going to say ages 8 and under. I don't have kids but I know what I liked when I was a kid. This is like the new Tomagotchi. You take care of pet hamsters and play mini-games with them in habitrails. You can find baby hamsters and find and take care of many other hamsters beyond the one you start with. This is not a bad game at all. It seems pretty well made and fun for a young child. That's not to say they won't get bored with it. I did nearly everything in the game after only a couple of hours. The more you do the more you unlock and get. There are challenges and various games.

It's not a remarkable game or anything but it's a good distraction to amuse your kid. I'm going to stick to that age recommendation though. I assume if your child likes Zhu Zhu pets or has them then they are probably the right age for this game. Any older and this title will probably bore them after a couple of weeks.

My seven year old little sister loves Zhu Zhu Pets. And so, I decided to rent this game; after some pestering from her of course.
She played it, and was pretty much addicted to it!!! She was finally through with it in three weeks though. ;)
I wondered...what IS so great about the game? I played it and it was alright. Cute and wacky, but it sure isn't for hard-core gamers out there! I think Zhu Zhu pets are the new thing now. I remember other things back from MY childhood that were way bigger though.
Anyway, this game was amazing to my little sister. But I found it kinda decent...but fun for the first part in a way. It's something that gets old for older gamers in about thirty minutes or so.
I'd say...kids 7-8 should play this; especially if they like Zhu Zhu Pets. It's very kiddy and adults probably would get sick of it quickly.
Rent it, but don't buy. There's plenty other kiddy games. :)
