I know - everybody loves this game. What's not to like? Well in my case, it's my 4-1/2 yr-old who played with it once and has shown little or no interest in it since. Granted she likes princesses but she doesn't LOVE them like lots of other girls. But I think the real issue is the relative lack of challenge. We got Monopoly Jr. at the same time (both for Christmas) and we have been playing that almost every night for the past several weeks. So my recommendation is to buy this game if you have a 3 yr old (and older) who loves princesses. Think twice if your child is older and is into more advanced games already because if they are this game has the potential to be a very short-lived thrill.
