Methinks it's just a game, as long as he doesn't get overly addicted to it!!

My son also "picked up" animal kaiser from classmates at K1. He has a collection of version 5 cards which he reads about the characteristics of the animals & even memorize key facts. Co-incidently, school theme was wild animals & he was very interested in researching from library books, improving his vocab & knowledge. In a sense, it's good...

What's not good is the game itself. Expensive & waste time. Scan a card & press some buttons. But I must say the graphics is nice. Good bonding time with kids too. We laugh over the "alien egg E" ramen & other silly miracle card stunts.

My point is no point avoiding it. It is just a game. Now my son is sian with it & beyblades. Interest in books & drawings last longer. He can design his own AK cards & beyblades move in his free time

There's another one called Digimon, at the entrance of almost all the ToysRUs stores! Works almost the same concept as Animal Kaiser.

My boy does collect both cards n the different versions! We don't go all out to complete the set though!

I thk generally both are ok games! We control his 'game' time, ie, once a week once IF we happen to walk past either machine!

In fact, it's quite a good 'tool' for making frens! Cos somehow when u put a bunch of kids together, they tend to chat on common interest, which includes the abc two!!

Haha!!! There are lots more, ie, Ninjago, Beyblade etc! Key to it all is ' In Moderation' :wink:

IMO anything that uses money to buy virtual items is bad.

my sons are more interested the the cards than in the game. They will draw their own super rare cards! Tried to stop them when they first got interested, but I think better to let them have controlled doses.

Hi Vicki,

Hahaha from your comment, I got a sense you like it too? :lol:
To be honest, I'm interested too. The cards are nice. :smile:
That's why I sense that this game is quite addictive.

I do agree that same intrest can brings the kids together.

Ok. I'll let my son know n play this game once in a while... It's just I fear to loose control myself... :lol:
