A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
Princess Tiana is busy setting up a new restaurant and her new husband, family, and friends are all there to support and help her. The game sends the message that starting a new business is hard work but worth the effort. The game also sends a message that playing mini-games with friends can be fun.
Positive Role Models
Princess Tiana is a hardworking business woman, who is also fun and supportive of her family and friends.
Ease of Play
The game houses 25 mini-games but some of them suffer from poor or unresponsive controls -- particularly the dance games. But with so many to explore, you can just ignore the ones you don't like.
Violence & Scariness
Some of the games have you throwing things at others, like pastries.

Products & Purchases
This is a game based on the Disney movie The Princess and the Frog and can be viewed as promoting the movie since you relive scenes from it.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this Wii game is based on the Disney movie of the same name and that it is a different game from the ones played on the Nintendo DS and the Leapster. The game houses 25 wholesome mini-games. While there is one in which you can throw pastries at others, the rest are about dancing, dress-up, decorating, memory, and targeting. This is the only Princess Tiana game in which you can play with up to four others in multiplayer games.
Is It Any Good?
Many of the 25 games are quite fun, but not all are winners. For example, the memory games and the ones about leaping in the air to perform tricks are exciting and the controls work well. But the controls for the dancing games are hit-and-miss. With 25 different games (although several are very similar), there is enough selection here that kids will have a good time playing with Princess Tiana and her friends.
Of the three different The Princess and the Frog games (the other two are on the Nintendo DS and the Leapster), this one is the best for families wanting to play together while enjoying the antics of the characters from the Disney movie.
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.
