I was recently sent the Wii game Bonsai Barber by to review on my blog.
The kids were all excited by the prospect of a new Wii game, and this one was no exception.
The instructions were easy to follow, and once I read the inital on-screen instructions to my 5 year old, he could easily snip and trim all the “clients” without a problem.
My daughters (11 and 9) could often be found “helping” their little brother, and thoroughly enjoying the fun, despite assuring me they were a bit to old for the game.
According to them all, the best part is snipping off a bit too much, and then being able to “spray” water, and watch the vegetation regrow before their eyes. Painting was also a fun option. I most enjoyed the gong you were able to whack on completion of each customer.
So in summary, a fun game, easy to follow for younger kids, but all the family can enjoy together.
It is great for hand/eye co-ordination and the controls are very sensitive to movement.
The kids were happy to take turns, as each “cut” only takes a few minutes, so it was soon there turn again.
The only one in the family not too impressed by the game was our cat, George, who refused to participate, insisting on dozing on a near-by chair.
For a chance to win one of THREE copies of the game, follow the instructions below
– you MUST live in UK to have a chance of winning, and please state “I live in the UK” as part of your comment to be in with a chance of being selected.
– you must be able to be contacted by email or blog (if you have one)
– the prize will be delivered via your Wii code, so your Wii console must be able to be connected to the internet to receive the game. It is not too complicated to do – even I managed it, and I can supply a link to step-by-step instructions if required.
– closing date will be Friday 27 November at 10pm, GMT.
Now I love all comments on my blog, and I hope my non-UK and non-Wii owning friends will still comment.
So my question to ALL of you is – what is top of your Christmas list this year?
