I love this game! I'm a 34-year old mom of three and I feel like this game was tailor-made for my family. My kids are 1, 4, and 7, so obviously the one-year old doesn't play, but it has been such a fun family bonding experience for the rest of us. The characters are so cute and my kids love the cat power. I do wish there were more characters to choose from in terms of game play (Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, and Blue Toad are the only options). It really is a delightful game, especially the levels with Plessie the dinosaur (pretty sure it's a dinosaur). My four year old son can play with no problems. Sometimes when we were at a hard part, he would have his character just stay in the bubble while the rest of us got through a challenging part in a level. My seven year old daughter is very pleased that she can play as Peach. Hardcore gamers would probably find the game a bit too easy, but it's perfect for young kids (I'd say 4 to 10 years old).
