The creatures are definitely cute and the game is kept light and easy. The only areas where the game tends to bog down is when trying to find a way to register the game and redeem codes online. Petz Fantasy Sunshine Magic is definitely for younger players and that age group may not mind the repetitious nature of this title. This is a wash-rinse-repeat style of game that will slightly increase the challenge of the mini-games, but still keeps its target audience firmly in mind. The focus seems to be on making certain young players succeed and enjoy caring for these fantasy Petz. There is a companion title with 20 different Petz called Petz Fantasy Moonshine Magic.

Online interaction: Players can go online to redeem codes to unlock new costumes for the Petz, but the DS could not connect to the Web site to either register the game (and parents will need to register with the Petz page at in order to access the various elements) or redeem the codes. The process is not easily accomplished.
