Kids say (1):

The Parent Guide for the software suggests that the two levels of difficulty correspond to concepts for preschoolers and kindergarteners. But the skills required to race these cars are too hard for most preschoolers. Players must be able to use the multidirectional arrow pad to speed up, slow down, and change lanes, while also pushing the A and B buttons to perform other tasks that require timing, including jumping over oil slicks, inflating tires to drive over puddles, and blowing the horn to tip over tractors. Kids 5 to 7 are the ideal audience.

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.
