Perfect for everybody!

I think that it teaches children of preschool age the Mandarin Chinese langauge, friendship, and love.

Audience age for Ni Hao, Kai-Lan: Super Game Day probably maxes out around six, but for younger children, there's a lot to love here. The graphics are bright and colorful, the characters cute and friendly. The games have lots of kid appeal (butterflies and bubbles always work for that) and all have easy enough controls that "I can't make it work!" frustrations should be at a minimum. Many of the controls are designed with pantomime movments (swinging a net, waving a fan, paddling with an oar, marching with a parade float), which gives the entire game a "let's play pretend" feel. Super Game Day's only negative is the small number of mini-games to choose from. For preschoolers, twelve games may be plenty, but it still would have been nice to have more content. There could be more characters, too -- especially girls, as Kai-Lan herself is the only female in the game.
