While most of the puzzles are fun to solve and great for kids as young as 4, one is too tough for the target audience: The game with Honey Pie requires kids to add and subtract. Parents of preschoolers may need to help with that one. Also, the puzzle about inserting musical notes into a song was challenging.

In addition to earning items that appear in Strawberry Shortcake's scrapbook, kids can get printable black-and-white pictures to color. There's one freestyle Mini game where kids can design their own cake, and two of the best puzzles are playable outside of the story-driven game for high-score bragging rights. Parents worried about how much time their kids spend on the computer will appreciate this game's parental controls, which allow you to set how long your child can play.

Did we miss something on diversity?
