UbiChamps Smurf Dance Party Review
I grew up loving the Smurfs on Saturday morning TV. Never missing a weekend, it was one of my favorite cartoons. Now when I tell my kids that the Smurfs was one of my favorites, they think it’s pretty cool that they like something I liked as a kid.
Naturally the kids saw the Smurfs movie at the theatre when it came out; to top it off with The Smurfs Dance Party Nintendo Wii game was an absolute hit. Not only do I love the fact that the game is in some of our favorite characters but the best feature is that it gets my kids up and moving. That’s one of the biggest reasons I don’t mind letting my kids play video games.
Each of the kids have their favorite characters but mine is Smurfette; she was always my favorite. Each player dances along with Smurf characters, matching their dance moves. If the player matches the correct dance moves, the player gains points in the game with bonuses for a series of correct dance moves. One of the other features about the game that I like was the Parents section where you can track progress, trophies and more; this feature adds more interaction with the kids while they experience the game.
Not only can you compete with your friends or family to see how talented you all are while getting a good exercise, everyone has a blast doing it. My kids were laughing at each other as they each tried the dances; it was great to see the kids so carefree and happy. Hubs and I even had a try at it and we did “not bad”, or so the kids said between the giggles.
