Good introductory game for children

My 5 year old son loved this Nintendo DS game, but he acquired all 25 animals in three days. As this was his first "gaming" experience, it was not very challenging. "Maze Munch" is the only questionable content (i.e., lions eat/pounce on blood), but my son did not want to play the maze games where his character was chased (i.e, grouper catches/eats clown fish, fox catches skunk)...also, some intimidating music with the grouper/clown fish. Very educational...lots of fun animal facts...very enjoyable!

Great for a first gaming experience

My son loves this game and is able to play all of the games as it asks the questions out loud. I would love to find another game similar to this for him as he enjoys it so much. He just turned 4 at it is exactly the right level for him
