With a husband who is a gamer, and loves to play video games for him it is important that our children learn how to play video games, and I am not as enthusiastic as he is about it so I prefer that they play video games that have some sort of educational value to them. My main reason for us getting the Wii as the console for the kids games is because it is physically interactive instead of just sitting in front of the T.V. I myself am not one that has much experience playing video games, so chances are if I can play it so can my kids:)
We recently got Pet Rescue, by Jumpstart for the Wii. Princess Pretty Pants thought it was the coolest thing that she could adopt a pet, and take care of her pet. She choose a Bunny and named her bunny Maggie(the game makes naming your pet so easy because there is a list of names to choose from, perfect for little kids who do not know how to spell things all the time), she took her bunny to the park and then gave it a bath and changed its outfit. My Little Man loved being able to paint and draw, and it was so easy for him to do with out having to have me help him at all. My favorite part is that along with being fun for the kids it has educational games and the kids are learning, and being rewarded with extra things to use while playing the game.
You can buy Pet Rescue on Amazon.com
One Luxury Living Frugal Style reader will win a copy of their own!
