    Reminds me of MySims, sort of.
    Cutesy characters, 3D, and business simulation...sounds like MySims to me!

    Going to try this out later, as soon as I can get a hold of it.

    I think I might try this, even though it looks way too childish.

    I've been looking forward to this, I can't decide between Emblem of Gundam and Toy Shop!

    Say.. a Toy Shop Simulation? And toys level up and stuff, I don't know whether that unlocks the next set of toys or evolves into better toys.

    7.5/10 IMO.
    Good Sim. actually,

    NVM:
    I judged to quickly! I judged first by looking at screenies online.
    After i downloaded it, I COULDNT EVEN FIND MY OWN SHOP =O
    And the "3D" thing, you cant even see ur characters head, its like a tilted Birds Eye view.
    So..
    4/10

    You go to the shop by pressing X. You can do it at any time. It says it right at the top of the screen at all times...

    I think if got a hold of a manual you would be able to find your shop no problem =P Don't think "I don't have a manual" is a good enough reason to give poor score review. And I don't know what you mean by you cant even see ur characters head. Do you mean their faces?


    I'm on day 19 of Summer, year 1. Making $1250~$1400 profit a day. Early game was seriously a chore, but once I got some toys to level 20+ and expanded the shop, it became much more fun. Tweaking prices, shop layout, toy "tech-tree", side quests and hidden blueprints are good enough for a store sim.
    If you can withstand the repetetive workshop in early game, I'd give 8/10. Personally this beats Animal Crossing and My Sims on single player, but the lack of online interaction hurt the score quite a bit.
    I'd say over half of people would think "this is so repetetive and feels like work instead of fun" and quit. Probably it's a hir or miss kind of game.

    This is surprisingly fun. I expected another "Build-a-Bear workshop" clone, but this actually had some thought and creativity put into it. It's not Zelda or Final Fantasy by any means, but worth checking out if you need to kill some time. And, of course, kids will love it.
