I have been looking around the DS circuit for games for my 5 year old daughter. She has a hard time playing some games because she can not read yet. When I saw this game I got super excited. We Tivo Shaun the Sheep every time it is on Disney Channel. We all laugh so hard at it! I was hoping she would be able to play it. So I got it for her 6th birthday and it was a success! There is a story mode and a mini-game mode. It is very age appropriate for her. It holds her attention and I can hear her laughing as she's playing it. In the story mode, the object of the game is to find all the sheep who have escaped from the pen and spread out over the farm. If there is an object that Shaun can interact with, it has his head above it. The game pretty much tells you what to do. It is fairly simple. The mini-games that we have seen so far are easy as well. Some use the microphone, which my daughter loves. I think the game would be great for younger kids, probably not so much for the older ones. I'd say, probably 7-8 or younger. The graphics are great, the game play is entertaining, and it plays the "Shaun the Sheep" theme song which is cute. All in all, I am very pleased with the game and I am so excited that my daughter has taken to it like she has. A great buy!
