Just Dance Kids 2014

Hi lovelies!  With the holidays approaching/upon us, it's time to start thinking what the heck to get the kiddos in your life.  I try to maintain a healthy balance between electronic toys and actual activities that get the heart rate going for my little ones.  I'm thrilled to be partnering with Ubisoft to review their newest video game, Just Dance Kids 2014.

My kids love the Just Dance games for our Xbox 360 Kinect.  It's such a great idea, a way to make them move while still 'playing a video game'.  It makes me happy to see them being active and not just couch potatoes, and heck I love to play along too!

While my kiddos are a bit older (8 and 12) than the intended audience, this game is perfect for them regardless.  My daughter was so giddy to find some of her favorite songs by Selena Gomez and One Direction among many others.  My son just loves to be silly and goofy so he likes to throw on The Wiggles or Yo Gabba Gabba and laugh the whole way through it.  The dance moves are much easier with Just Dance Kids 2014, so even my no rhythm having self could follow along and get a bit of cardio in.  Seriously, I'd much rather dance to a fun upbeat song on the Kinect than go to the gym.

So I think my favorite part is the Parent's Corner, where you can create custom playlists or even check how many calories were burned! (Genius, right?)  That way I can justifiably skip the gym knowing I burned more calories than I would have had!  But it's for kids, right.  There's some really fun modes you can play in, too, like the Freeze n Shake (stop dancing when you see the stop sign and start at the shake sign) or my favorite, Balloon Pop (dance to fill up and pop the balloon, shake to grab stars and points).

Since we have the Xbox 360 Kinect, there's an exclusive Just Create Mode, which allows kids to make their own music video using their own choreography and routines.  So cool!

In all, we LOVE this game!  It's a must-play on constant rotation, and for me it's also a great workout!  If you're at a loss for what to get those kiddos on your list, head on over to Amazon and get them a copy of Just Dance Kids 2014!

    By the way thanks for your enthusiastic comment Amalia, you really made my day! :D
    I can't wait to see your version. The nice thing about diy our own lace up trousers is that we can make them in any color! :)
