TOTALLY FUN PARTY ACTIVITY: JUST DANCE KIDS 2014
We already own JUST DANCE 2 and love it! So when Ubisoft sent me the new JUST DANCE KIDS 2014 video game for Wii to review my girls tore it open and immediately wanted to play it!
JUST DANCE KIDS 2014 which is targeted to the under age 10 set, plus parents.
THE MUSIC: There are over 30 fun songs to choose from. For the really young kids there are songs from Yo Gabba Gabba and The Wiggles. My girls are 7 and they jumped for joy when they saw Victoria Justice, One Direction and Selena Gomez on the list! The songs are all kid-friendly and I didn't have to worry about any inappropriate lyrics. You have the option to turn the lyrics on and off, so kids can sing along as they dance. For our first time, we opted to keep the lyrics off so we could just concentrate on following the dance moves. I always get a chuckle when I see the music chosen for parents. Included are songs like "Shout" and "Do You Love Me?" Yes, we like those songs, but even parents love the current pop tunes, and frankly, those are the ones I personally enjoy.
THE DANCING: The dances are led by actual kids, set in different backdrops. For the most part, Renee and Siena were able to keep up with the dance steps, and I assume the more difficult songs will get easier the more they use it. The degree of difficulty is given for each song. However, the girls went by their favorite songs over how hard the moves might be. The graphics are very clear and fun to watch.
GREAT PARTY ACTIVITY: If you have the room, and you don't care about keeping score, this is a really fun activity to have at a rock star party! Or any party where you want to get the kids moving. Renee and Siena have already enjoyed it on play dates, too.
PERFECT HOLIDAY GIFT: JUST DANCE KIDS 2014 would make such a great gift! It's now available on Amazon and Game Stop. As we head into the colder weather, it's a great motivator to get the kids moving, since outside play will be limited. And it's great exercise for moms, too! I certainly plan to jump in when I can, and get some quality fun time with the kids–or just do it on my own! ;)
