Bella Sara Review and Giveaway-CLOSED


Bella Sara is a fun-filled magical world where girls can expand their imaginations. The online playground is a private user experience - interaction with others online is not possible, offering parents piece of mind. Bella Sara keeps all personal information private and keeps their virtual world a fun, safe place. Parents can also determine their child's appropriate level of interaction with the Bella Sara world.

Bella Sara are a series of trading cards, much like Pokemon, only girl oriented with female characters and lots of horses and fun adventures. Their most recent release, Bella's Ball, invites children to the magical land of North of North where they will learn about the enchanting ballrooms of Rolandsgaard Castle while unlocking new adventures. Bella's Ball is one more addition to the imaginative online world created by Hiddent City Games and conceptcard. Also new are the Miniatures Series 2 set, which features 20 velvety figurine horses, each with their own secret code to play. They have also released their first animated DVD - "Bella Sara Tales: The Adventure Begins".

I had the opportunity to review two packs of the Sara Bella, Bella's Ball cards. Each pack contained 5 trading cards, 1 sticker card (w/ 2 stickers), and 1 Ticket Card. The graphics on these cards are enchanting, and carry a brief description of their character. These would be perfect for any little girl for Christmas, slipped into their stocking or tucked into a card. The adventure mode is easy to play, and fun! I would have had this review posted earlier, but I tried out Bella Sara for myself - I was drawn in, enjoying the graphics and game and ended up playing for an hour :)

The online world of Bella Sara has many layers. One playing option is to care for your very own horse - you select the horse and give it a name. Naming is made simple by clicking on arrows of two boxes, until you find the name you like, making it simple for younger players. The adventure mode is much more complex, and requires a solid reading ability. Game play is simple - your character moves by clicking on various spots of the board, or by clicking on characters to "talk", which gives you your next adventure. To keep the game simple and fun, you have three items on your bottom bar - a map, a journal so you won't forget the next part of your adventure, and an inventory bag to store items. Your game is saved online, ready for you to play again.
