This has been one of the easiest DSI games for my granddaughter to play because all of the instructions are audio. As a kindergartener, she can't read the instruction screens on some of her other DSI games so she either has to ask one of us to sit with her so we can read the screen or just try to figure it out. Hello Kitty is a fun game that she can play on her own when we are driving around, etc.

Is It Any Good?

Very young gamers on the lookout for software that's not over their heads or beyond their abilities will find much satisfaction in Hello Kitty Party. The party-themed mini-games in this collection are incredibly simple (a few are actually over a bit too quickly, even for kindergartners) -- find the right vegetable in a produce stand, match a character to its silhouette, sort buttons into the right boxes, etc. They're generally set against time limits, though it's unlikely even young kids would have difficulty finishing the required tasks before time runs out. The time limits almost seem like they're added to give little ones the illusion of challenge more than an actual chance that they might lose. Hello Kitty Party is a great diversion for kindergartners and preschoolers new to gaming.

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.
