A scanning stone. Never knew I had to do that. Geez. I already threw that piece of paper away. Grrr. Of course I am not the one playing it, my son has been mostly playing it.

Mine scanned too. I was hoping the wind-up toy would wind-up in game, but you still end up throwing it.

Anyone see the Fantastic Pets coming out in the next couple of months? Looks like pretty much the same thing, but done with unicorns and other exotic type pets. A little more pet dress up involved too, but otherwise it looks pretty similar.

I tried scanning in the burger king animals but I dont think it ever worked or maybe I was doing it wrong. They were toys that came with the kids meals back when the game first came out. Oh well.

My daughter is all about buying stuff from the lemur. Kind of scares me how much she likes to spend. She is into decorating the house up.

There is a certain toy in the last obstacle course before the snow area. I don't want to release any spoilers, but it is a toy character from another game. I REALLY want it, but can't seem to get Gold. I try and try and sweat and sweat, but haven't gotten it yet. It is those climbing obstacles that really slow me down. Ugh.

I like the game in that it is like a tech display of what the Kinect can do. Voice commands, throwing, hitting, pointing, etc.

As for the huts, you can keep going to the bonding circle to get more. But I think it is clearing up space for the animals you can scan in. I scanned one in that I bought with the original package. There are supposed to be more coming out in the Spring that Toys R' Us will be selling.

yep just fill the meter up top to finish basically. Most games I got silver in....I only tried harder if the gold prize was something really good lol. NEVER bought anything either...no food/water/toys etc you got enough in game. MY big question is there is so many huts...was I supposed to find that many cats? I was confused on that lol

My kids and I are on the last part of the map now...the ice part. At first, I was trying to get gold on on all the contests, but then by the time I was throwing the alien ship trying to break china, I was done with that idea. To get the end character, did you just earn all the xp to get to #5 in on the last area?

Have to say I enjoyed this game alot...my daughter is to young to really play it but loved watching me jump and play with the tigers. I finished it this weekend really cute end character you unlock :) and hints towards part 2 another island :)

I will say by the time I got to the last map to explore I was a bit bored and just wanted to beat it already. SOOOO I hope game #2 has a bit of different stuff to it :)

all in all I give it a strong 7 :)

This game is PURR-fect for kids. Sorry for the pun. lol

I have tried several Wii games and I only got a limited gaming experience out of them, where I had to navigate the menus, etc. With this game, they are pretty much self sufficient. My daughter (4, almost 5) navigates through the menus with a breeze. She laughs, jumps, throws, runs, etc. She goes from the main area, to the store to buy stuff for her house, to the obstical course with not much problem. Every now and then she calls me in. Usually it is because she is trying to eat a snack and navigate the menu at the same time. The system is reading both hands and doesn't know what she wants to do with a hand up to her mouth.

My 3 year old has a lot of fun with it, but needs help navigating the menus and getting what he wants. he can select yes and no, but not know where to go to find the map, etc.

Here is what I have heard so far. This game as cute as it is may be is actually setting up a young gamer. LOL I know it sound weird like how you get young kids to smoke the same thing is happening here. INteraction, side quest and so forth. I think think gaming is becoming like a drug now. Hook them while they are young.

Yeah, Kudo, the dude you always see in sunglasses promoting Kinect, has said this is one of his favorite games. It is much more than just petting, there are several mini games and tasks to do. Loads of fun here.

Don't forget about the cats out in the wild. You can get the plush animals and scan them in. It is really something special to see a plush animal come alive that you can train.

Also Burger King has the kid meals that come with toys your cat can fetch.

As for the voice recognition, it works crazy good. I was playing with my cat, Snickers, last night and teaching it tricks. I would jump and spin and it would jump and spin. My wife said, "can you make it roll over". Guess what? It rolled over! I didn't do a thing. She said, "how did you do that?". Lol. She then said, can it lay down? And, yes, it laid down. lol

Can we say awwwwwwwwww sooooooooooo cuteeeeeeeeeee this game is so cute and I was going to overlook it...but picked it up today because of my boys...and I played it and this is the cutest game I've seen in a while....It reminds me the dog games on the DS...but with differences of course...

It's made up of all wild cats..etc..a lion, panther,cheetah and so on...there left along on an island and you have to interact with them...this game is adorable and I had a blast doing so...there are little challenges..and acheviement points to be had....

I'm telling you I would have never picked this up thinking oh this is for 3 to 10 yr olds but I'm 45 and thoroughly enjoyed it....I might just be the biggest and oldest kid here on sparks....

5 Stars for this game
