Parents need to know that Dora & Kai-Lan's Pet Shelter is an animal care simulation game featuring the stars of several Nickelodeon preschool shows (Dora, Kai-Lan, and Diego). The game is made easy enough for very young children to handle. There are no real negative consequences other than an animal looking sad. Animals do go to the bathroom in the game, but they always do so behind a bush, so there's nothing to be seen.
Kids can learn a bit about the responsibilities and emotions that go along with caring for a pet. Players perform the sort of pet care tasks that some kids might try to avoid in real life, such as washing, brushing, and feeding pets. They'll also perform veterinary exams, which many kids could find exciting. If kids fail to properly care for these virtual pets, they will see sad-looking kitties and pooches and learn about the consequences of inadequate care. The game doesn't offer a lot of concrete knowledge, but kids can learn about the general importance of caring for animals.
