Kids say (1):

Whether kids have fun with this little downloadable adventure will depend largely on their ability to digest the game's odd presentation. The unusual household activities -- such as trying to find a pork belly amid various ingredients in a fridge so a pair of talking mustard and ketchup bottles can prepare dinner -- are attended by bizarre scenes in which strange characters do a lot of talking about nothing in particular. Kids will either get the weird humor or they won't.

If they do, they'll likely have a lot of fun not only with the strange mini-games but also the photo-snapping core of the experience. Tracking down and then properly framing the objects the curator wants to display in his gallery -- a book, a CD, a paper cup with a straw -- is fun and can be surprisingly challenging. The resulting 3-D objects are kind of cool-looking and may even contain surprises such as collectible stamps if you examine them closely enough in the game. It's well worth the $9.99 price -- assuming you can get down with the peculiar Japanese vibe.
