Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Very Educational!

This game is very educational, but more importantly, it helps with helping the brain work faster, especially with the games that require you to think fast, and my brain power and speed has greatly increased because of this game. I loved playing this game with my sister when I was younger, and we loved viewing it as a fun way of still going to school and learning. I highly recommend it for the whole family, and what makes it different from the other Wii games is that it is more on the educational side, but in a fun way. This makes this Wii game very unique.

This title has:

Great messages
Easy to play/use
Too much consumerism
age 7+

Another option for family game night.

Fun family activity but it can be hard to play against each other competitively - too much time between events. It can also be harder for younger children, if they don't grasp the point of a particular puzzle.
