It’s such a cute and relaxing game

I absolutely love this game. It was made years ago but I still love coming back to play it once in a while🥺. I really wish that more people will check it out cause the characters are so cute. It gives me a calm vibe with the art style and the music. If anyone could tell me the name of the music I’d love that because it’s so calming and helps me feel relaxed, it gives me so much nostalgia. 💜💜 thank you so much for putting this game out there for everyone to check out, I see that you put so much effort into it. I’m grateful thank you for that 💜💜💜 :D

My grandchildren’s favourite

A great entertaining time for children that allows them to discover cause and reaction in humorous scenes. My first grandchild is now 17 and he loved playing with the petting zoo. My youngest grandchild (5) now enjoys playing the same game. Over the years, the program has been updated with more interesting scenes and reactions. Well done! It has been well worth buying.
