Fantastic Game for Umizoomi Fans,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Team Umizoomi - Nintendo DS (Video Game)
I purchased this game for my five year old to help him improve his math skills prior to entering Kindergarten next fall. I was so happy to see that my 3 and 7 year old also clamored to give the game a try. My 7 year old is veyr skilled at math and isn't really a Umizoomi fan, yet he even said he enjoyed playing the game and thought it was cool (high praise). The game interweaves the characters talking and the games you play. I like that the characters talk the children through how to play the game so kids can easily follow the instructions. If you are purchasing this for a 2 or 3 year old I would say that you should be prepared to help them a bit. My 3 year old has just turned 3 and some of the sections were a little challenging for him and he'd get frustrated. One of the things I don't like about the game is that it's not that easy to skip from section to section. You have to get through the first part of the game before you can move between areas. I'd like to seem them change this if they make an updated version. For my five year old I was pleased because the content is a good mix of easy and more challenging. My goal is to familiarize him with addition and I think this game does this in a nice way.
