Kid Tech Review - Animal Crossings Wild World - DS

My daughter (9-years-old) has already paid off her mortgage on her first home and is now furnishing her two story home with all the money she makes from her apple orchard.  Everyday new strangers come into town, some she likes while others are rude.  And when her "real" friends come over, they sit side by side visiting each others homes, stealing eachothers fossils, and drawing constellations in the sky.  As a parent, I give this game 10 stars for safe, interactive entertainment.  Here is what 9-year-old Taryn has to say about the game.

30daysof: What is the name of the website/game/device you reviewed? 
TC: I reviewed the game Animal Crossings for the Nintendo DS.

30daysof: How did you learn about it?  Who told you?
TC: My cousin (age 12) told me about it. 

30daysof:  What ages do you think are best suited to play this game/website/device?  What abilities or devices are needed?
TC: Girls ages 8-11 would like it best. It plays on the DS and DSi.

Note: they also have the new game Animal Crossings City Folk for the Wii.

30daysof:  How many hours a day do you spend with the game/website/device? 
TC: Probably an hour a day.

30daysof:  Do your parents set rules for you such as: chores first, then games:  or only 1 hour a day; or no rules, I have all the control!
TC: I can only play it in the car or if a friend comes over and they have a DS also.  Otherwise my mom makes me talk to people.

30daysof: What is your favorite part of the game/website/device?  Which part do you play most often?
TC: When you pay off your mortgage and get a bigger house.  I am always decorating and working to get a bigger house.  And I like to search for dinosaur bones.

30daysof: Please give a secret tip or hint that you want other friends to know about the game/website?  For instance: how do you get to a certain level, find a gem, kill a bad guy, earn extra money?
TC: Buy two shovels from Tom Nook's shop then bury one then the next day you have a golden shovel

30daysof: Why do you like this game/website/device better than the others?
TC: Because you get to interact with animals\buy things\fish and soooooo much more!

30daysof: Write one sentence about this game/website/device that would make others buy it!  
TC: You can teach your kids to pay off  mortgage and use money wisely and help their reading skills.

30daysof:  How could they improve this game/website/device and make it even better!
TC: If they made a restaurant it would be better.
