Fans of Cooking Mama (and Gardening Mama)'s task-based gameplay will be right at home with Crafting Mama, too. What really stands out in this game is the creativity of the projects and the fun and unique steps you must follow to finish them, whether it's constructing a squirt gun by brushing out the inside of a cut piece of bamboo, turning it upside down, and shaking out the dust -- all with the stylus -- or blowing into the Nintendo DS's built-in microphone to keep dust and leaves from settling on the glue you've just laid down. Unlockable bonus items (including pictures to hang on Mama's wall), multiplayer support, and a Mystery Craft mode with additional challenges, round out the package nicely.

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.
