Something’s gotta be said for a product when your almost 6-years-old is playing a game and turns to you several times to say “thanks.” As in, “thanks for getting this, Mom” and “I really like this game, Mom, its so fun.”
We came home today to a delivery of Wii’s new Birthday Party Bash for about an hour now and it is the perfect set of mini games for preschoolers and young elementary kids. The idea is to buy the game and host a birthday party (up to 12 players can play.) The host can select from 10 themes (we like “Monster Party”) and the party is then matched with about 10 games (of over 20 party games) to play during the party. Or you can create your custom party with your favorite games. It even comes with birthday party invitations–all you need is 4 remotes and a real cake and you’re set.
Of course, we’re not having a birthday party today. But we’re still enjoying the fun. We’ve played almost all of the games at this point and my 5-year-old’s favorites are Pin the Tail on the Donkey, Sak Race and Slingshot Blast (which may be my favorite, too.)
When it comes to fun, new wii games, Birthday Party Bash is definitely taking the cake. (Pun totally intended.)
