and animal lovers will enjoy this just-for-fun software game
starring Barbie's little sister and some of her doll friends.
Though the program isn't educational, it is enjoyable and
satisfying for little kids. Children meet up with Kelly, Tommy,
Chelsea, and Kia in
front of Kelly's Clubhouse. Each doll has a "pet"--but
these are not all ordinary pets! While Kelly is taking care of a
pup named Butterscotch, the others are readying an elephant, polar
bear, and pony for the upcoming Kelly Club Pet Parade.
Clicking on any of the animals launches a multi-step
activity, while clicking on a doll will open a dress-up game. PJ
the pony needs to practice for the parade, and kids need to help
her jump over fences and through hoops in perhaps the most
challenging activity of the game. Kids need to follow a particular
order of the stunts, but maneuvering is a little tricky. Players
win a ribbon and then feed the pony the carrots (pictured below),
after which PJ gallops away and gets messy. Children brush the
involves similar steps. Emmy elephant needs to practice catching
bamboo batons, is rewarded with leaves to eat, and then her
toenails need to be decorated for the parade. Butterscotch the dog
practices bouncing a ball with Kelly, is fed the bones he has
earned, and then he needs to have a shower and blow-dry!
are nice little extras, such as a printable friendship bracelet
with the child's name printed on it, and printable rewards. Once
all of the dolls are in costume and the pets have practiced their
tricks, a very fun parade sequence ensues. Children can decorate
the floats, add bursts of hearts and stars to the production,
organize their floats, and watch the final parade in action.
This is not an educational game,
but it features beautiful graphics and just-for-fun activities
that will please preschoolers. Except for the pony jumping
activity, the games are manageable for the target age group.
