Is It Any Good?

Fairyland: Melody Magic is incredibly sweet and has some very cute animation. There's not a whole lot to the game, but what there is should delight preschoolers who long to play "big kid" games on an older sibling's DS. The brevity of the adventure is the game's main flaw, so in order to feel like you're getting your money's worth, choose this game for children who like to replay games. That may not be a problem, though, as we are talking about preschoolers -- the same people who are not only willing, but eager to watch the same Dora the Explorer DVD thirty times in a row.

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.
