I bought this game for my sister as the name of the game indicated that it is aimed for girls. I also tried playing the game, although i did not enjoy it as much as my sister did. I believe this is because it is a young girls game rather than an adults.
It is about a woman called Katie inheriting her grandfathers boutique that sells things such as books, cakes, chocolates e.t.c. It starts at an easy level and as it gets harder more costumers come to the shop that need help with their purchases.
I believe that the game also aided my sisters maths skills as it requires money to be totalled and change to be given.
The game also has challenges as rival boutique owner known as 'Mr cheapo' constantly tries to ruin your business. Therefore, this provides a interesting storyline throughout the game.
Overall was fairly pleased with the game as it was not that expensive and it kept my sister occupied until she finished the game.
I bought this for my 6 year old daughter as a treat as she already had a lot of the other imagine series of games and enjoyed them. I got it from my local Asda's and it cost £12.
Quite simply the game starts by your uncle putting you in charge of his small shop and you have to run it. This game is great for younger ones as the tutorial to help you learn what to do is simple and really fun so you learn how to run a successful shop without really realising you are gaining the skills required to play the game.
This game starts with just one department and then the more you fulfil the shopping brief for your customers the more departments you earn until you have built up a really successful department store.
Both of us have great fun with this game and I think it makes her think a bit more than some other ds games around. The game also involves quite a lot of reading so is good for her reading skills also.
Overall a great game for the money and recommended for any little girl who has an interest in shopping!
