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.

I am allergic to dogs, and cats, and rabbits, and hamsters…you get the idea. So of course my daughters are obsessed with all of those pets that will never be a part of our home. And trust me there are days where they’d probably trade me in for a puppy. But they have learned to transfer their obsession to the virtual world and Petz Nursery is one of their all time favorite games for the Nintendo DS. Just in time for this holiday season Petz Nursery 2 is hitting the shelves and they couldn’t be more excited!
In Petz Nursery 2 you can:
- Take care of up to 22 baby petz and help them grow. As newborns, your baby petz will need to be picked up and played with, and eventually taught to crawl. When night comes, help them fall asleep by rocking them or singing them a lullaby.
- Unlock never-before-seen exotic petz. Animals such as baby pandas, tigers, polar bears, and leopard cubs, you will be able to pamper wolf cubs, piglets, and 4 different breeds of penguins!
- Play activities with two babies or just one; but make sure you give both babies attention or one will develop faster than the other.
- Send your baby petz to the Petz virtual world, Petz World, and unlock exclusive exotic animals.
Sounds like hours of fun right? And all without the sneezing, itchy eyes and 3 am walkings!
You can purchase Petz Nursery 2 at Amazon or Toys R Us but best of all you can enter right here to win your very own hypoallergenic copy!
