Ohanarama is an online social game environment where children and families can connect and challenge each other to all kinds of fun games, bringing family fun that much closer.
To celebrate the official beginning of summer, Redbox is asking moms of the blogging world, “What’s your favorite video game to play with your family?” In addition, they are rewarding fun-seeking families with the opportunity to win $10,000 as part of their Summer of Fun & Games Sweepstakes.
Our recent trip to the Disney Studios in Hollywood, CA brought more fun and magic than I could cram in to one post. So, here’s part two of our exciting adventure, filled with the latest Disney Fairies have to offer!
After screening Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue the day before and flying high off the wonderful facts and tidbits the creators and animators shared with us, I (foolishly) thought “there’s no way they can top this.”
I was absolutely, totally, wrong.
Folks, we took a trip to the magical land of Pixie Hollow.
MySims Party for the Nintendo Wii will keep your young kids entertained. Play individually or against up to 3 other players. Compete against each other as you play 50 different mini-games.
The arcade-style games, like many Wii games, are more physical than typical videogames. For example, one game involves outrunning a robot. Others include flipping bacon and extreme snowboarding.
You can make summer a fun, educational time for your kids. Prevent summer learning loss with “stealth” educational activities.
If your kids enjoy playing video games and being online, introduce them to the All Star Buddies. Moms Caryn Burns and Cindy Prince started www.allstarbuddies.com in order to close the gap between websites that were created for entertainment and those developed for education.
I received a review sample of the Thomas and Friends Great Race Game several months ago. I finally had a chance to test it on a rainy afternoon when a friend and her children visited. Her 3 year-old and her 5 year-old played happily for several hours.
My hopes were high when I received a review sample of Jillian Michaels Fitness Ultimatum 2009 for the Nintendo Wii. My Nintendo Wii is an essential part of my exercise and fitness program, and I thought it would be fun to add more variety to my Wii Routine. (Click here for my Wii Fit review.)
The Amazon reviews of Jillian Michaels Fitness Ultimatum 2009 are mixed. Some love the workout, and others pan the poor graphics and slow response time. After trying the game, I can understand the love/hate reviews.
Make family game night even more exciting with Trivial Pursuit for the Nintendo Wii. Play a video version of the classic game or try a new twist by playing in “Facts and Friends” mode.
We reviewed Bella Sara trading cards and online gaming community before. Each card includes a unique code that activates a virtual version of the horse pictured on the card at the Bella Sara website. Girls can feed, groom and play games with their virtual horses as well as read stories.
Bella Sara has just released two new products that would be perfect for your little girl’s Easter Basket. The first is the Bella Sara Miniatures Collection ($1.99). Each pack contains a small velvety horse and a bonus code that can be redeemed online to play special games. I wouldn’t recommend the miniatures collection if you have babies or young toddlers in your house since the little pieces could be a choking hazard. But the older girls (7 & 8) who tested this product loved being able to hold and play with the horses they adore from the online games…
Video Games aren’t for everyone. Candace makes a big effort to engage in only “unplugged” play. Her little girl watches almost no tv, and I highly doubt she’ll be playing video games anytime soon. While I embrace the unplugged play philosophy in theory, I see a lot of value in video games as well. I have many happy […]
