Now you really can play with your Build A Bears!

Build A Bear - A Friend Fur All Seasons is a new an awesome extension of your children's favorite bear friends. Finding great video games that are interesting to older children but still playable for the younger set is tough. The Wii seems to be the perfect platform that makes true family gaming accessible as using a Wii controller just seems to be intuitive to even beginner gamers.

Build A Bear - A Friend Fur All Seasons is a two part game and in many ways is two totally separate games. The first half is an explorer game where you can pretty much wander around explore the islands, interact with the other bears, and collect chests. It reminds me a bit of a kiddie friendly version of the adventure games that many adults including myself love to play.

The real fun starts when you start with the second half of the A Friend Fur All Seasons. Like many family Wii titles the real fun is in the mini games. You can play alone or you can play many of the mini games with up to four players and its fun by yourself but its great to be played as a group. The games are simple, easy to understand, and I'd venture to say that even a three year old could easily master some of the games though they are fun enough that parents won't be bored. Some of the games get you moving as well and with thanksgiving coming my butt could really use the extra help. All of the games are fun but I broke a bit of a sweat on the jump rope game which is a huge plus to me as my biggest complaint with letting kids play video games is the fact that they end up sitting all day on the couch.

Build A Bear - A Friend Fur All Seasons is available right now for the Wii and you can pick up your own copy on Amazon!!

I'm so excited as I have a copy of Build A Bear - A Friend Fur All Seasons to give away to one lucky reader!

What excites me about this game is that it is a "quest" type game where you hunt for things and collect things. Who doesn't love that ?! cdziuba@aol.com

reb said...

My daughter has always wanted to go there, but there are none around us. She would love it.

This is the part that excites me "Choose, name and customize your very own furry friend at the start of the game. Then join it as it explores the islands, meets the inhabitants, helps its friends and has a blast in the process." I can see that this game would be a blast for anyone of any age.

Thanks so much!
