This activity center offers five activities. Unfortunately, only three work well. Kids will have fun in an arcade-type maze game, playing a logic game in which you ask questions to deduce which dog is the 'Top Dog', and a standard art creativity activity that allows children to use stickers of the movie characters.
The other two activities are uninspired and down-right boring. Kid-testers lost interest in tossing bowls of food to puppies and trying to play with dogs in virtual parks.
As in Groove Center, this software hosts an ill-conceived online component. You have to quit out of the game, go online to download a small program, and restart the game to add more parks in which to play with your dog-an activity that isn't that much fun to begin with.
For the price, children will get very little satisfying interaction with the characters from the movie. The age recommendation is off too, these activities are too hard for 4 year olds.
