IGN: 8/10 "a daily dose of lightweight fun disguised as toil"
NGamer/Nick Ellis:: 8/10 "They say there's a fine line between genius and madness and Zoonami are tip-toeing along it with what is surely the world's first game where you style vegetables' hair."
Edge: 7/10 "...if you've done your job well, you will make some carrots and celery really damn happy"
In this debut WiiWare title published by Nintendo and developed by Zoonami, the village residents are hungry for the latest in foliage fashion, and it's up to you, the new barber, to fix them up.
Use the tools of your trade: scissors, clippers, spray can, and more in this humorous, first-of-its-kind "first-person-groomer" game. Bonsai Barber features a colorful cast of 12 intriguing customers, including a temperamental shallot starlet (don't call her an onion), an oddball strawberry boffin, a cactus cowboy, a daredevil carrot, and a suave banana with top-secret clearance. Each day, five customers arrive to test your stylistic skill. If the customer requests a specific style, you'll plow that furrow, or you can rely on your expertise to pick from more than 30 popular fashions. Or, why not turn over a new leaf? Be creative and see how they react. They're a demanding bunch, so if you miss an appointment, you'll hear about it-on your Wii Message Board. If you do a good job, you may receive a gift or even a postcard from an exotic destination as your happy customers travel to distant lands and show off their exquisite coifs.
