Littlest Pet Shop (for DS) ~ Review

As those of you who follow me know, that I provide in-home daycare for kiddos of all ages. In doing that I am not a provider who lets the kiddos just sit around and play video games all day. First I they are only allowed to play if they are older than 6 and I set the timer for a half hour per kiddo, and it can not be violent games whatsoever.

My daycare kiddos love when the UPS or Fed-Ex truck pulls in the drive way and let me tell you, they never miss it because our dogs bark like mad. Our Shadow, who weighs in at 150 pounds, can hear him coming down the road and can't wait for him to get here so he can meet him at his truck for his treat. Okay, so anyway the kiddos never miss a package arrival and they are always watching to see what it is. When I opened the package containing the DS games Littlest Pet Shop Beach Friends, they were so excited that they were jumping up and down and these are the little kiddos, not the big kiddos. Well of course the little kiddos could not wait to tell the bigger kiddos when they got home from school.

This past weekend when my darling 20 year old daughter finally found the cord to her DS, I got out the Littlest Pet Shop Beach Friends and let a few of the bigger kiddos go at it. Guess, what they loved it!! Of course they were upset when they couldn't sit and play it all day long. After them begging and begging me, I thought I would be nice since it was the weekend I would let them play it longer. Now, they love me!! Thanks EA Sports and Rocketxl for sending me the DS game to review.

I have to confess, I blackmailed the kiddos. I told them they could play it but then they had to write what the liked or didn't like about the game, so here are some things that the kiddos wrote about the game:

"LS", who is 9 said: "I like that they would let me bake a cake. Also, I got to play on "BW"'s file. I liked the kibble game."

"BW", who is 7 said: "I liked the game because we got to make a cake. The arcade was so fun because the ring toss. I liked the kibble cone. I liked to play with the bird.

"JS", who is 11 said: "I think that game was very fun to play. It was great. I liked the duck game. The duck game was awesome to play."

Me being a big kid at heart just had to get it out and play it, after those kiddos went home of course. Here is what I thought: I agree that the kibble game is fun to play and it makes them use their brains. Unfortunately I could not find where I could bake a cake:( I am going to have to have them show me. It's amazing how kids can figure out some things that us silly adults can't do. lol Overall, I would have to rate this game awesome also!
