But I love new things, too. I love pop culture games because I try to keep on the up and up of the era. All kids love new things but my kids have really taken to our new games from Wonder Forge. We tried out a few Cat in the Hat games about a year ago or more and we loved them. So I was excited to work with Wonder Forge again. We received Who Shook the Hook? (a Jake & the Neverland Pirates game), The Joker Funhouse (DC Superfriends game), and the Enchanted Cupcake Party game (Disney princess game).
My boys were gung-ho about the Joker Funhouse game, them being so big into Superman. We've played it several times together and it's quickly becoming my favorite kid game. The rules are simple, the boys get to have "super powers" that they get to use (Superman uses his x-ray vision, Batman has a device that you fire to shoot the Joker off his feet, Green Lantern uses a shield to protect himself and his friends, and The Flash has super speed). My favorite thing about this game is that the superfriends have to ALL cross the finish line in order to beat the Joker. I love things that teach teamwork instead of "I win!" and this game does just that.
I played the Enchanted Cupcake Party game with Squirt. I would say that, of course, this is more geared toward the females in the crowd or anyone who loves princess movies or to bake.
I love how cute the little cupcakes are!

We really do enjoy playing games. It's such a great activity for dexterity and learning to take turns. Winter is coming here in Kansas so I am armed with these wonderful games for those cold and snowy days. You can be too! Wonder Forge has some other terrific games available and I wanted to share a few others that I find to look like great fun:

I hope you can find something suitable for the kid in your life. Games are fantastic for coordination, social skills, and just plain fun (without the tv!).
