My 4.5 year old daughter enjoys playing this a lot. I wouldn't call it educational per se, but it's just the right level of mentally stretching for her, as she tries to figure out what roads will end depending on where the tile is placed, and which players will score more points because of it. 4.5 is a bit young, older children would probably enjoy it even more. But the real benefit is that it's a children's game that adults don't mind playing, so you can play together. Adults will eventually tire of this game, of course -- I encourage you to check out the normal version of Carcassonne if you haven't already, as that one keeps adults entertained for far longer and is a great introduction to European strategy board gaming.
Lastly, in case this helps you make up your mind, we received this game as a gift, loved it, and have now given it as a gift multiple times to multiple board gaming friends with children. As I say, it's perfect for gamers with young children.
I am so grateful that I discovered Kids of Carcassonne -- finally I have a game that my youngest can play that also doesn't bore me. He had a little difficulty at first understanding the concept of a closed vs. open road, but after playing it a couple times he gets it. The level of strategy is perfect -- not too much that he can't play well, but also enough that the adults still have to think about their moves. There's also an element of luck involved, so a yonger player can still win even if he doesn't make all the best moves.
I'm looking forward to playing this game and watching my son get better at it over next months and years. I highly recommend this game as a gift for any six- or seven-year-old.
The only real concern I have is how easily a 5-6 year old can lose one the meeples. They are jumbo-sized, but prepare to have to use 'analogs' as stand-ins for the inevitably lost play pieces if you invite children to play with you.
P.S. if you get sculpy in the 4 colors of the meeples you can 'trace' and bake up some extra guys and not worry so much about losing them.
