While the movie tie-in will draw kids to this software, the playability will keep them coming back. These games are an enticing combination of simple logic games, logic puzzles, and learning games. Kids will find a variation of the game where you pop matching colored balloons -- but this time they are popping colored spider eggs to help them hatch. They must move bales of hay within a maze to open up a path, find words in a spider web full of letters, and collect rings on a bumper-car rink by driving into others.

The game is best suited to kids ages 7 to 12. While younger kids could succeed at some of the games, others will frustrate them -- and they won't be able to unlock all the game's content. A minor weakness is that the onscreen instructions are sometimes insufficient. For those looking for a more traditional action platformer game, turn to Charlotte's Web for Nintendo DS and Game Boy Advance.

Did we miss something on diversity?
