There are two things about spring and summer that I love its finally time to get outside and play. This spring was pretty lackluster in NYC as it was raining most of the time but now summer is around the bend the sprinklers are in the park and its a great time to get outside and play. In my mind there are many great outdoor play games…
When you have a young child nothing beats watching them chase after bubbles – it used to be that you’d get light headed after 5 minutes of blowing said bubbles but with recent technology you can have hundreds of bubbles being blown for as long as the More >
The idea of the virtual pet has come along way from the days of little black and white little egg shaped toys years ago. Now children (and adults) can raise their own interactive pets… Kinectimals [amazon] is the first video games that allows you to be the controller using the xbox 360 kinect system to interact with your virtual pet. There of course is a great twist which is you can purchase different stuff animals/plush toys to unlock different characters. Since this was one of the first games being developed for the system its still by far one of the best. Microsoft certainly has More >

Just Dance Kids [ Amazon ] is just that a dance game for kids. Its pretty awesome to see my son’s face light up when we pull it out… cause he knows its time to DANCE!!! and thats just it since this has three yo gabba gabba songs we created a custom playlist and thats pretty much all he dances too.
I challenged my wife to a few goes to the random choice, of course she kicked my butt! Over 40 fun dances/songs that are led by real kids, which really gets my son into the game (as he watches the kids on TV and tries to follow along – monkey see monkey do right?!).

A few weeks ago I gave everyone a good scare (myself included) and as I tweeted from the hospital the King himself gave me a gift of an XBox 360 & Kinect, I was trying to win one just like everyone else. I cant wait! It’s by far the most popular video game gift of the season.
I went to my friends at Burger King (because they partnered with Microsoft for the release of this amazing game system) and asked if I could share the joy of giving a family a Kinect prize pack because this will really help out with their holiday shopping! Of course was their answer!

John Tartaglia’s Imaginocean is an amazing show for kids 2 and up. The story of 3 fish is highly engaging to the kids as they’re super bright in colors based on the blacklight approach the show takes. Its interactive as many times the puppets break the 4th wall to interact with the crowd.

I totally More >
