I don’t love video games but when it comes to video games that get the kids off the couch that is a different story. A few years ago we purchased Just Dance and boy it makes you sweat. We have had adults come over and play late night. Wonder why I was so sore the next day but after a few hours of dancing, competitively if you will, was tiring. The kids liked that game, but eventually get tired of the same songs. When I was able to review Just Dance Kids 2014 I thought there would be some new modern songs to get them moving.
Once it arrived I was curious as to what songs were on this version. To my surprise there were a lot more “kids” songs than modern ones. There are three different categories, little kids (Wiggles & Fraggle Rock), Older kids (Arianna Grande & One Direction) and All Ages (Shout, Fireflies & Walking on Sunshine). Since my youngest is 7 we skipped over the little kids and went straight to older kids. You can find more songs on this game on Just Dance Website.
He did have fun picking his own character.
We have never had the Ubisoft Just Dance for Kids before so we have nothing to compare it to, but my kids said that the dancing was too easy. My 7 year old would not admit it but when he was alone with me, he was having a fun time. When big sister came down with her opinion his seemed to shift too.
There are several different play modes including a balloon chase game . In the short time he played, we could not figure out but my guess it is for the younger age that can not follow the moves as easily. I would definitely recommend this to kids under the age of 7. I think both younger boys and girls would enjoy Just Dance for Kids, as I recall having dance parties with the kids when they were younger in the kitchen or following the Wiggles on TV.
We have a video of my middle dancing to a Wiggles Song while watching it on tv. While it is not as competitive as the regular series, I need to remind myself that they are younger kids playing. They do get points so if your kids like rewards that element is still part of it.
