What We're Playing:
This final week before school starts was full of doctors' appointments, check ups and endless waits in waiting rooms. Our DS and 3DS made the down time much more fun. Fill your waits with less whining and more winning with fun new Nintendo games from Best Buy.

Here at ChiIL Mama, the tween, teen, my husband and I love to chill out with video games to relax and have fun. Thanks to our friends at Best Buy and our partnership with the Wolf Bloggers, we had a chance to score a review copy of Tomodachi Life for our 3DS. It's too much fun, and all of us have enjoyed seeing our personalized Mii characters populating the Tomodachi town and having virtual adventures. All our friends and family are there! This town rocks with magic shows, rock concerts staring your family members, conflicts and cooperation. You can even customize each character's exclamations (though the pronunciation may be a bit wonky unless you spell it phonetically).

At first my Pokemon obsessed kids weren't sure Tomodachi Life looked that fun from the commercials they've seen, but once your friends and family populate your own personal island, hilarity ensues. The kids have been laughing lots and playing Tomodachi Life early and often. They've been entertained for hours making silly mash ups, creating clever shows, and exploring their own personalized Tomodachi Island. This is also a fun choice if you have kids of varying ages or a competitive one who gets moody about losing. It's non competitive, interactive, and as much fun to watch as it is to play. Help your friends and family problem solve in Tomodachi Life and watch the rewards roll in.
