One of my fears as a mom is that as winter approaches my daughters will spend more and more time indoors being sedentary with unspent energy making all of us a little nuts. So, I love Wii games that get my girls moving. Just Dance Kids is one of those games. First of all my 8 year old daughters are very wary of games that could seem too young. Just Dance Kids has two modes – older and younger kid, which instantly put them at ease and garnered some “cool” points. On the mom-of-the-80’s plus side there are songs like Holiday and Mickey in the dance list – though not sung by Madonna or Toni Basil unfortunately – but still some songs for a mom who remembers wearing leggings the first time around!
Just Dance Kids is not easy – and best of all not easy to cheat. My daughters found out long ago that they could cheat the Wii by just moving the remote and not their whole body. That’s hard to do with this game. You’ve got to keep up and keep your body moving to get the remote going the right way and earn your points. The only downside is that there is no practice or learning session, you just jump right and in and try to follow the lead dancer. It’s not that easy to pick up even on the easy level. Some rehearsing would have been nice. But, overall the game kept them dancing, and moving. On a cold, rainy day it was just the thing to work off those Turkey Day leftovers and keep cabin fever at bay.
