Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town available for Nintendo DS and Wii Review

Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town available on Nintendo DS was a welcomed surprise to my youngest daughter (Nat, age 6). She has a fond love for her DS XL and for Santa Claus too. Now she can have them both with her as we travel for the holidays and play games too.

For a Nintendo DS game the graphics were decent and in my child’s point of view they are happy and bright. She spent her entire allowed game hour working on puzzles, activities and listening to stories. She would have taken Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town to bed with her if I had allowed.

This is a fun-filled, holiday themed game that is great for children ages 5-10. Very simple to understand and navigate. I did help my six year old with a little reading of the bubbles, but for the most part she took complete control of the play.

Would I buy Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town on DS and/or Wii? Yes, I would. Even it for the sure fact that the Santa theme will keep them occupied for hours as we travel. I have a feeling that they will continue to play this long after the gifts have gone too.
