Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue is an excellent game. It looks great, has wonderfully intuitive controls -- -- and features loads of creative and varied minigame content. It's so much fun just making your fairy fly that you may want to simply ignore your missions for a while and just zip figure-eights through the air. One on-going quest allows you to plant seeds and maintain a gloriously lush garden; another let you use petals from the flowers you grow to create and sew new outfits for your fairy wardrobe. While there is a storyline and a main quest that must eventually be followed, there's an very nice openness to the game that let's you customize your entire experience in Pixie Hollow. Kudos to the developers for doing more than just trying to duplicate the film's plot in a retread video game.

Online interaction: The game can connect go DGamer, Disney generally safe online community where kids can experience safeguarded chat. If your child has an account with Pixie Hollow Online, Disney's fairy-themed virtual world, she can download her custom-created fairy from that site directly into the DS game.
