The new craze that has whirled through our home is the Nintendo 3DS. When the older cousins got theirs, Jett was obsessed with watching them so he could learn. They were really good about taking turns and sharing, so it went over pretty well, but when he turned 5 this month we decided to splurge and get him his own DS. Its so cute to see him play the fun games we played as kids. I am looking at you Mario Kart…
The newest game we got is called Yoshi’s New Island. Its is similar in format to the other Mario story type of games but has a few new exciting twists. Yoshi can eat his enemies, poop them out into an egg form, and shoot them as bullets. Its quite entertaining, and the bathroom talk is perfect for our 5 year old. There are some levels where you have to tip the DS side to side to drive it, and while it throws him off its a fun change up to the regular levels.
Final Verdict: Buy it for your kids, and enjoy it yourself. Try not to stay up late after the kids are in bed to pass more levels. 5/5 Stars!
