Ages: 3 - 5 yrs.
Price: $19.99
Gaming System: Nintendo Wii

Grab your Wii remotes and jump into the magical world of Sparkalot as you help Reader Rabbit and Sam the Lion restore missing sparkles to both land and air. This colorful and fun game fuses entertainment with education with mini-games designed to teach key preschool skills such as Letters and Sounds, Matching Attributes, Shapes and Colors, Creative Expression and counting. Each of these activities can be played in English, French or Spanish (set via Wii console). Game levels include: Lighting Bug Match-up (babies and parents), Rainbow Falls Painting, Sparkle Rocket Math (load each rocket with the correct number of Sparklenauts), Rush River Letters (match each object to the correct initial sound), Sparkle Shape Mining (shape matching) and Create-a-dancequake.

Each mini-game features multiple, easy-to-change difficulty levels to add to the variety and diversity of game-play. Cut-scene video clips are interspersed with the activities to keep children interested and engaged. The game also includes an interactive, illustrated map for navigating through the various games and activities.

It’s refreshing to find a video game that you can allow your children to play guilt-free: it’s fun, visually appealing, wholesome and educational.
