Product Description

Reader Rabbit Kindergarten is an educational adventure game based on the characters from the popular and long-running series of learning games for young children, Reader Rabbit. Intended for children ages 3-6, the game is designed to teach basic skills to prepare kids for success in kindergarten and provide a foundation for further learning. The game's main character, Reader Rabbit, and his sidekick, Sam the Lion, are flying their airship over a new island when they are mysteriously captured by a giant bubble wrap. They then come to realize they have landed in Balloon Town, an island made of balloons where all sharp objects including their airship are locked away in a palace. In order to free their airship and continue on their journey, they must first gain access to the palace by helping the band wake-up the sleeping bull in front of the palace. To do this they must gather the 5 different instruments for the band that have been scattered around Balloon Town. In order to receive an instrument, players must help Reader Rabbit and Sam in a series of educational mini-games designed to teach kids basic skills such as memory, recognizing patters, simple math, phonics, rhyming, following directions and placing items in order. All mini-games have simplistic point-and-click controls using the Wii Remote. Once players have retrieved all of the instruments and gained access to the palace, they must complete two more mini-games (a listening comprehension/sequencing game and a reading skills game) before gaining access to their airship so they can continue on to a new adventure. The game is presented in a colorful cartoon style with short videos, full voice acting, and sing-along songs designed to engage young children while still teaching basic skills. Players will be able to adjust the difficulty level of all mini-games independently which can add hours of replay value.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun but too short June 28, 2011
By Cappy
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was thrilled that my son really enjoyed this game. He was so anxious to collect all of the instrument pieces rewarded for individual skills. I was hearing a chorus of angels singing in my head - thinking it would help provide kindergarten review practice over the summer months. 2 hours later he finished the game. So far he hasn't had any interest in repeating it. Maybe in a few weeks...

One thing that irritated me about the game is that if a child doesn't respond to a problem quickly the lion and rabbit make comments like "we don't have all day". It didn't seem to bother my son but I thought it inappropriate. Just sayin...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent inexpensive educational learning tool June 20, 2011

I thought that I would give the Reader Rabbit Kindergarten game a try because of the low cost and the fact that it is educational. I was really surprised by how my my son liked to play and learn from the game.

There are Reader Rabbit 1st Grade and Reader Rabbit 2nd Grade Wii games sold on Amazon as well. I am going to purchase those once my son masters the Kindergarten game.

2.0 out of 5 stars Is good for practicing skills, not learning them February 22, 2012

Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Our 5 1/2 year old is struggling with reading due to an Auditory Processing Disorder, so we were trying to create more fun opportunities to learn the reading skills in addition to the typical work we were already doing with her. We thought this game would be ideal for that and she was very excited to play it. Once we started though, we were all pretty disappointed. The graphics in the game are pretty bad, but that's not much different than some of the other kids Wii games we've purchased. What was frustrating for us as parents and particularly for our daughter was that this game wasn't built on actually teaching any of the reading skills at all. You have to already know all the things they're teaching; this is simply practice to solidify the skills. It's not made like the Reader Rabbit I remember using as a child.
We've only used the game three times and each time our daughter has ended up in tears because it's very frustrating for her. It may be fun for a kindergartener that is already able to read well, but not for a child that is struggling. We ended up just going to ReadingEggs.com and while it's not what we wanted initially, it has been incredibly beneficial.

3.0 out of 5 stars Can't skip the meaningless chit chat March 29, 2012

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
It's alright for a kids' game I guess. The graphics are of course not great. There's a whole lot of talking from the characters and you can't skip through it. My 3 year old plays it just fine after I taught her how.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too much talking May 26, 2012

Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Receved from Amazon a few days ago. It's almost as if my 4 & 6 year old tolerate this game for the sake of not hurting mom's feelings. I am encouraging them to think of it as a interactive cartoon. They are big fans of Mario bros & wii sports, it would be great to be able to find a wii educational game that was faster paced and more engaging for the kiddos. This one "talks a lot", lots of story line and the kids lose interest. Almost seem frustrated with the redundancy of the games.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kid don't like it
This game is difficult to figure out. I wasn't sure what to do at first, and it seems that every game/ activity has to be done 3x. My kindergardner and preschooler are bored by it.
