How fortunate that I have 2 kids that fall within the age parameters. Also fortunate that if there should be any restrictions on number of entries per household, they can enter from either their place or at mine.

Only downside is that I have no interest whatsoever in seeing this movie in 3D and 95 percent of what I've seen from the toy-line is stuff I find to be absolutely hideous. My oldest son has no interest in the toys and my youngest is lukewarm at best.
I finally have a contest that the I can get the family into and none of us would really even care to enter it. Go figure! :BANG_HEAD:

Meh. There are only 4, 5 levels and they are the same. Would be better if each level was randomized in words and locations, and a heck of a lot more levels to play. This is good for kids, which is there focus I believe, but adults like these things too. I would want them to impliment some puzzles that are more challenging for us older people.
