    This sounds like a game about safe sex birth control and not letting a video spread across the internet.

    I just tried the previous one for my daughter, Smart Girls Playhouse, which is a little bit easier from what I read. I must admit for my five year old daughter it's a real fun package with things like memorizing cards, colouring in, playing a toy piano and even a very primitive Cooking Mama clone. Finally a fun computer game for my kid.

    I'm very excited about this release because my daughter loved the last game.

    I suggest trying Smart Kid's Gameclub (#1926). It combines the girl (Playhouse) and boy (Gameroom) versions and allows you to record encouraging messages.

    I suspect that the people bashing this game are too young to have children of their own.

    Practicing safe sex and not having a kid if you really don't want one, has nothing to do with age. Why create something that you don't want.
    Kids are NOT sex-trophies, they are living human beings.

    People bash titles like these because it falls into the "crapware" section of titles,reguardless if it's ment for the younger kids or not.......

    RAAAAAAAAAAGE about games with animu front covers not released every single day, posting "shovelware" pics and one-word comments, pathetic attempt to get posts up with said posts, etc... it's not an uncommon sight to see here nowadays.

    Because your kid would be smarter than every kid in the market, all of whom eat this shit up. Mhmm.

    Sorry man, kids are dumb, they don't know the difference between SPONGEBOB PARTY GAME and Kirby Super Star.

    There's no upper limit, so adult who are not the intended audience can still complain about the game.

    If it said AGES 3~5 then you can just tell the whiners to learn their age.

    What's crap about this game??? Well I don't know if this is very much different from the last one, but from my gamer's point of view off course this has nothing to offer me. It's too simple and premature and has no real challenge. But that's EXACTLY what my daughter likes. No hard challenges, just a bit of doodling, dressing up a virtual doll, etc.

    In the past I've tried dozens of games that were supposed to be made for "small children". Well, she couldn't make anything from it, the interface/controls were far too complex most of the times. And I had to agree, some kids might be into action shooters from the age of 3, just because they are very interested in games from an early age on, they are very good at mastering the controls, but my little girl hasn't got those skills (yet). But still she too wants to play a sort of "videogame", which is obvious, because all the time she sees her dad gaming. But even the most simple platformer is far too complicated for her.
    So because of this game being so simple and basic it makes the game perfect for her. So I think it's really stupid to call this "crapware".

    Oh, and by the way, allthough Wii Music might be a let down for many Nintendo fans (including me), my daughter loves it. Last sunday we were "jamming" together and it was great to see her face light up when "playing music" together with her dad and even make her own little "dvd package" from the performance. She exactly knew what kind of artwork she wanted for the sleeve. It was great. So Wii Music also is a game very suitable for youngsters, it's fun and, above all, VERY educational. Great work Nintendo.

    It seems to me this game doesn't come across as "crap" to little girls which is what this game is for.... It's not aimed at you that's why you think like that, can't you see that?

    What? You've completely missed the point. These types of games keep the little ones quiet so they're good at what they were designed to do. Giving NSMB to a 2 year old doesn't quite work out.

    If you don't understand that's your problem not this game's fault.

    That's really strange! My kid is five and can barely cope with these type of games. As I expected, tonight I let her play the previous Smart Girls game and she loved it to bits! Good stuff (for her)

    Yeah its really stupid, and its usually by posters with quite a lot of posts too. Mods should hand out punishments its just flooding the release threads with crap.
