This post is part of a sponsored series from Ubisoft, celebrating “12 Days of Giveaways.” See below for how you can enter up to 12 times to win fun and family-friendly video games.

Petz Fantasy: Sunshine Magic [Amazon] is a second generation game the follow up to the smash hit Petz (it was all the rage in 2009!) For many its the software equal of tamagotchi.  You hatch these pets, care and tend to them.  This is a great game for little ones that understand the concepts of pets or if you’re trying to teach the concepts of owning a pet.

I’d bet there will be a number of parents who’d rather get a virtual unicorn instead of a puppy this holiday season.  So the interactive play is with mini games that are easy enough for kids as young as 3/4 to figure out. Once they hatch your child will feed them, clean them, play fun games and learn their preferences to help them grow. Unlock tons of accessories and up to 20 different costumes inside the game. Which will add a lot sticky value to the game. Fantasy Petz are based in a virtual world with 4 types of powers: Flight, Ice, Fire or Speed – which will allow different games for different petz.  There is a sister version of Petz Fantasy: Moonlight Magic which also holds another 20 petz.

Overall the game is worth wild and certainly would make for a great holiday gift – which I would say is way better then a puppy or a kitten that you’ll end up dealing with long after the batteries go on the DS.

Now its time for the giveaway!
