5.0 out of 5 stars Perfectly Fun and Created for 4-7 year olds! December 29, 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
It is really difficult to find a satisfying DS game for my almost 5 year old and 6 year old. Even the age appropriate character games are usually too advanced for this age group. Most DS games require a lot of reading and they can only get through them with parental assistance. Skill level can also be too advanced on many DS games marketed for the younger ones. This game is smart - it does what I have been complaining about all along - it reads the text to them! How simple, yet how frustratingly absent this has been in many of my 6 year old's games. The games are challenging but not too difficult that they cannot get through them by themselves after a few tries. Both of them will really enjoy this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars 6 Year Old in Heaven. November 15, 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a nice game for little kids who like dinosaurs. It has a bunch of mini games and you need to earn "digging points" to get more dinos and games. So far my 6yr old boy loves this game. No reading required for game play. Easy to learn and grow in difficulty. I even want to play some of the mini games. Scholastic finally put this on the DS and it is cool. According to the masses "I am the coolest mom ever". Enough Said!

5.0 out of 5 stars My 5 year old daughter LOVED it! June 22, 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My husband and I purchased this game for our 5 year old daughter over six months ago. It is EXTREMELY hard to find good, educational games. I'm not just looking to entertain my daughter but want her to take some type of knowledge away from her "game" time. This totally fit the bill! She could name all the dinosaurs by the end of the game. Even after she finished the game, she wanted to go back and redo the digs again. She enjoyed the different games, which have three different levels of difficulty to them. Completing the games gives you points to go and dig. I had to explain that to her, though. She didn't understand why she couldn't just go and uncover the bones. There isn't any reading involved. The narrator tells you everything you need to do. Your child just needs to listen, which I had to remind my daughter to do! I highly recommend this game. Even I cannot name all the dinosaurs! If you are interested in other educational games, Magic School Bus Oceans was phenomenal and so was Animal Genius.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun but easy to beat. January 20, 2011

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My six year old still likes the game but he beat the whole thing in the matter of a couple of days. We limit electronics time so he did this in a limited number of hours. If your child will keep playing it even after winning then fine but if not you might just want to borrow it from someone.

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I purchased this game for my 4 year old(he turned 4 in Sept 2011) in October 2011 and he finished all the levels in the game in less than 2 days of non-continuous play. Although the game says recommended for kids from age 5, I think this game would be best suited for kids from 3.5 years old or even younger as they don't have to know how to read to play the game, the game is fully narrated and once kids are familiar with electronic gaming consoles like the DS, they can figure this game out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Digging for dinosaurs May 13, 2013
Verified Purchase
I bought this game for my 4 year old son. He absolutely loved it. I love how he can mainly navigate around and play the game by himself. He is learning the different species of the dinosaurs and I would recommend this game to any child who loves dinosaurs.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My son loves this game... He won't even let me play. He plays it all the time. Well when I let him play... Don't want to be on it all the time... He's even tried to burry his Dino's at home in the sand so he can unburry them.
