My oldest daughter is big in to trading card games and she is only (almost) 6 years old. Because of this, Yu-Gi-Oh has quickly become one of her favorite shows to watch. She has quite the collection of cards and is actually really good at the game. There is nothing like getting to watch your favorite characters and creatures come to life on the TV though. That is why she was super thrilled to get an advance copy of Yu-Gi-Oh: The Dark Side of Dimensions – available now on Digital HD and coming home on Blu-ray June 27th.

Your Child Can Solve Cases & Learn Language Skills with Noddy Toyland Detective | #NoddyToyland

My daughters are big gamers, just like their mama. They have a tablet that my husband and I have filled with great games for their age that they share. The newest game we downloaded is Noddy Toyland Detective. This app is based on a show that they watch on Netflix all the time. It is one of their favorites so you can imagine how excited they were to see a game where they could play as Noddy and solve cases! They couldn’t believe they could meet characters from the TV show including Bumpy Dog, Revs, Pat-Pat and the Panda Pockets, Fuse, the Naughticorns! This game quickly became one of my favorites too.

We are a family that loves to play games. In fact, many nights and days are spent around the dining room table playing board games.

My girls flip over the little yellow guys, and my husband and I enjoy the fact that this a franchise we laugh at while watching too.

I run my girls around a lot – and I know this is only the beginning. They both do dance, but they are on different nights so it is a lot of time out of the house.

Elephant Mouse, the independent game publisher of the iOS hits Star Trek™ Rivals and Archetype, recently released the colorful and clever endless climber game, Twisty Sky, for iOS. The game, which requires both puzzle solving and quick reflexes, is available as a free download on the iTunes App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices.
