Some of you may have remembered my review a couple months back for the online game at Jumpstart.com for young children. Well, the online game had so much possitive feed back, that Jumpstart had a Wii game made based on the online game called Jumpstart Pet Rescue.
I got the game a couple weeks ago and have been trying to get my kids to play it. Sam has a really hard time working the Wii remote and Nephi just wants to watch me play it. Mario Cart is more their style. But I am not giving up hope, I think in a few months, Sammy will show more interest.
But I really wanted to do a good review for Pet Rescue! So I called in the Calvary... aka the kids that live upstairs. Gordon (4 1/2 who Nephi lovingly refers to as "Gummy") gladly came down to try out our new Wii game. He even brought his little sister, Kate, who we think could be Nephi's twin.
As you can see, the game was a hit! Gordon doesn't have a Wii at home, but it only took him a few minutes to figure out how the remote works to play the game.Gordon's mom and I watched him play from the sidelines. While we really loved the educational content of the game, we could tell Gordon was having so much fun that he didn't realize he was learning things at the same time. When it was time to go home, I asked him what he liked the best about the game he said, "Everything!" and then his mom asked him which part he liked the best and he said, "I liked them all!" So there you have it folks! A fun Wii game for ages 3-6 that is actually educational!!! Yippy!
Here are a few facts about the game:
- Release date: Sept 1st at Walmart; Sept 2nd to Best Buy, Sam's Club, Fry's, and other retail stores.
- Pet Rescue is the FIRST educational fame on the Wii for ages 3-6.
- Price: $39.99
Are you excited? I am!
P.S. There are a few remaining copies of the game left, and Jumpstart is having a contest to give them away, you can check it out here!!
Disclaimer: I did receive a copy of this game free of charge to review. This review is honest and I have not been paid to do this. I will not stand behind a product I don't believe in.
