My son just turned 3, and I thought he'd love this game based off of the reviews. Unfortunately this is probably the game he plays the least. If this is your child's 1st DS game, it might be worthwhile, but since my son has older siblings (the oldest is 8), they have more fun, challenging games that are more enjoyable. Super Mario is probably his favorite. The activities on Go Diego Go: Safari Rescue are extremely simple and I guess it just does not keep his attention. If your child is even a little advanced at playing the DS, this one might not be the best buy.
