This tech-vest wearing, hiking boots sporting teen Barbie is committed to helping pets by working in an pet rescue center. Players join Barbie in rescuing fifteen different pets. They need to find the animal in distress and then use logic to help in the rescue. Players also help the animals at a clinic. In addition, the program allows girls to play games with the rescued animals. Some are as simple as throwing a dog a treat, but a few involve critical thinking such as moving tiles to complete a tube trail for a hamster.
Superb graphics almost make you believe the animals are alive--these virtual pets are nothing short of adorable. However, while this title is high on fun, it misses many opportunities to teach about animal care. It has limited replayability.
All tech products are judged on a five star scale by looking at the following factors: fun, education, ease of use, value, and technical.
