I have bought this game with the intent of supplying fun game to kids. Shortly after starting it, I realized that ME - not really a kid anymore - have already played it for five hours straight! Game doesn't give any instructions - and that's 50% of fun, from discovering things yourself. It's a great feature, some of us, relying on tutorials for every game out there, already forgot.
That said, I wouldn't recommend this game for kids, buy it if you like solving gradually harder puzzles of "how to get up on that platform?" or "there should be 10 items on this level I have only 5, where's the rest?". You need to make surrounding creatures to do your bidding by singing for them, stomping the ground around or teleporting them wherever they're needed. You'll be lighting dark areas with a fairy, which you need to invite there by singing, you will use frog's bubbles to raise to higher areas, you will even need frogs bubble-fly another frog from time to time. Sometimes you will need that pesky bird, which god-knows-why has uber-affection for you, to be removed by zapping it with two slugs. There are times, when you will have wondered "how to get up there?", but having progressed slightly further you will discover new ways to do things, something you haven't thought of before, or just simply a new ability. This makes you go back and complete that task you haven't done before.
Warning to those that are alergic to trying things repeatedly and failing 90% of the time - you're gonna want to be zapped by a slug yourself, so try another game.
Writing anything more would be a big spoiler on how the game works, so enough to say - get it, you won't regret it.
