Great for kids!
I played the hour demo. This was such a fun game, I was quite surprised the hour was over already! I enjoyed it myself, but primarily I see this as an excellent educational tool for kids. (Who give it the thumbs up as well... :-) It is on the "kid factor" that I based this review score.
The game is self explanatory, each puzzle type gives easy to follow instructions (8 year olds figured it out), the puzzles are varied (same type of puzzle would have a different theme each level), and the puzzles increase in difficulty as the levels progress. There is just enough story to this game to tie it together, but that's about it. No plot to distract from puzzles.
There are matching puzzles of various kinds (enough that it didn't feel repetitive), spot the difference type puzzles, and word game puzzles. It is feasible there are others I didn't encounter during the trial because each level introduced new puzzles while keeping more difficult versions of prior puzzles. (I got to level 3 playing each one through, not sure exactly how many total levels there are)
Potential Cons - while I had to think on a few of the puzzles, most I found quite easy. I think that for most adults, the game will be rather short due to the lack of difficulty. I do not know (yet) if the level of difficulty increases to the point that children would become overwhelmed. I have a hunch if it gets harder, it still will be a great parent/child game.
As an educational tool for kids [1st grade (good readers or playing with a parent) and up], the children find it challenging but fun enough it disguises the learning. Thus for this aspect, I highly recommend this game.

my third big fish review
i loved this game! it has a great storyline and all kinds of different games to solve. i dont think i would call it a hidden object game though. its more of a puzzle game. but i thought it was a lot of fun to complete it. i will definately replay this game in the future.

Fun for an hour
The game had fun categories like "find the difference" and "what do these have in common." Fun to play the hour demo, but I wouldn't purchase it.
