Disney Princess: Charmed Adventures lets the player join in mini-games with their favorite Disney Princesses. Each mini-game uses different types of thinking skills. The games also match the princess. Rapnuzel, for example, has a painting mini-game (because she loves to paint) as well as a hide-n-seek mini-game with Pascal (her chameleon). The princesses included at the time this guide was written are Rapunzel, Ariel, Tiana, Cinderella, and Belle.

The game is free to download and also comes with one princess. An in-app purchase unlocks the others. The game got an E for Everyone rating. LW4K stands by this rating, but recommends the game for its 6-8 year old target audience. Charmed Adventures also has ads for other Disney games.


Disney Princess: Charmed Adventures helps kids practice and improve the following skills:

FocusDisney Princess: Charmed Adventures

Getting started and then maintaining attention and effort to tasks.

While each mini-game in Charmed Adventures will use a slightly different mix of thinking skills, all four of Rapunzel's mini-games require the player to be able to focus on short-term tasks. In the lantern matching mini-game, for example, the player must be able to focus on the lantern they are trying to match. However, they only need to focus on that specific lantern for three to five matches. Then the game moves on to a new pattern. The attention for the mini-game as a whole is also short-term as it only lasts approximately 60 seconds. Hide-n-seek with Pascal and hunting for Flynn Rider's wanted posters have a similar set-up. If the player does not use their focus thinking skills for these short bursts of time, they will not be able to get three stars for the game, and without three stars for the game, the player does not receive charms for the charm bracelet.

Time Management

Being efficient and aware of our use of time and effort.

Three of Rapunzel's games have a timer and, therefore, require the player to keep pace. The timer is both visible in the upper right hand corner of the screen and audible (if the player has the volume turned on). While Rapunzel remains encouraging the entire time, the number of stars earned depends on how many tasks the player completes before the timer runs out. In Pascal's Hide-n-Seek, for example, stars depend on how many times the player can find Pascal before time is up. The better a player uses their time management, the more stars the player will receive. The more stars they receive, the quicker they will unlock charms for their Rapunzel themed charm bracelet.
