Hey Pants, will a staff member at x360a do a review of this in the near future? The reviews are a joy to read here. I was thinking of buying a Kinect this holiday season, as friends randomly decide to storm into my home without a moments notice. I was thinking that this should be one of the Kinect games I may pick up this year, because my brother drops off his son(3 years old) at my house over the weekends, and he seems to be getting tired of watching my old Thomas the Tank Engine VHS cassettes all the time.

105 added points, why the 5? Makes the total 1105, seems a bit random to me

To the ones asking about the game: It is really a great game to play with small children. I play it a lot with my 3 and a half years son, it is a blast. He really enjoys Elmo (it may not be so appealing if the kid does not know Sesame Street).

The mini-games are varied and fun, the little stories and very toward little kids, this is really a family game. The "controls" are quite forgivable, the game starts to perform the moves for you, and it will stop if you do not continue right for a while, but the motion detection does not seem to care much if both person playing are doing the right move, it forgives your mistakes (it is hard to describe, it is not that it is not detecting your movements, but rather it looks like the game is really programmed for small kids, allowing fun without much compromisse).
Again, this game is for little kids, if your kid is over 7 he may not be interested on the activities. It is fund and one of my best Kinect purchases.

I just downloaded the DLC, will try it with my son over the weekend.

I will also try Kinect Disneyland in the weekend to see if it compares.

The game has a 79 on Metacritic which is good for a Kinect game. Most reviewers say its great for children and some say adults might have playing as well.
