A few years ago we got a family gift for Christmas that has been a hit ever since. We were a little late to the Wii game, but once we got on board, we were hooked. The only problem is a problem that plagues in a bunch of areas of life (board games, TV shows, movies, rides at amusement parks…..)
How do you find something that entertains everyone from the 4 year old to the 10 year old (and the adults would be nice too). Lily’s favorite Wii game is not a game that Silas can possibly grasp. Even Hannah struggles a bit with some of the more complex games.
There is one game that everyone in our family is always up for. Just Dance Kids.
Ubisoft’s latest, Just Dance Kids 2014, has 30 different songs for kids to dance to including some of my kid’s faves: “7,8,9” by the Barenaked Ladies, “Fireflies” by Owl City, “Put Your Hearts Up” by Ariana Grande and “Give Your Heart A Break” by Demi Lovato. Plus a bunch of classics for their mama (I may or may not wail away to “Hit Me With Your Best Shot”)
Just Dance 2014 has some new features that I really love. They allow for up to four person cooperative play. So all of us can play together. You can also create playlists where you can keep dancing to a list of songs without having to constantly stop and searching for a new one. There are also tons of different game modes so you never get bored even if you stick to the same songs. And my personal favorite: lyrics to all the songs so you can sing along with all the other teens and tweens in the country.
My favorite things about all the Just Dance Kids games is that my kids never get tired of it. They will dance and dance and dance and I love that they are a) moving, b)wearing themselves out, and c)making me feel a bit less guilty about saying “go down to the basement and play for awhile and give mommy a break already”…….
It is the perfect gift to add to your kid’s gift list this holiday season. Or get one for yourself, pour a glass of wine after the kids are in bed and get your Pat Benetar on……
