Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is a slow-paced video game that's perfect for young kids new to gaming. As kids get comfortable with controlling the characters onscreen, the game gradually increases in difficulty. Don't choose this game for kids who are seasoned gamers.
Is It Any Good?
Little kids who want to learn how to play on the Nintendo DS need simple games that slowly increase in difficulty as they start to master the fundamentals of making characters do their bidding. Miss Spider's Harvest Time Hop and Fly is just such a game.
If parents are willing to help read the instructions and tutorials, this video game is a good introduction for kids as young as 5 because it gradually introduces basic gaming techniques.
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.
