We have been stuck in the house for days and school has been canceled,my kids have been going stir crazy and hate the snow. So to beat the Winter Blues I introduced the kids to some new Nintendo games for the 3DS.
Mario and Luigi Paper Jam:
When Luigi accidentally opens a mysterious book hidden away in Peach’s Castle, he gets more than he bargained for when characters from the Paper Mario universe spill out of the pages and start running amok. Players must take control of the terrific trio of Mario, Luigi and Paper Mario to defeat Bowser and Paper Bowser and bring the Paper Mario characters back to their original world.
Maro and Luigi’s Paper Jam is a fun game featuring the original characters. They go from level to level trying to collect all the paper characters and put them back in the book. The game does have a lot of talking from the characters which can take a while to get from level to level, but still fun.
The popular Japanese sensation YO-KAI WATCH has come to the United States with hundreds of cute, spooky and mischievous Yo-Kai (physical beings that inhabit the world and represent different personalities and fears). Explore the world to find Yo-Kai, befriend them and turn them into a team to battle other Yo-Kai
Yo-Kai Watch is a monster catching game and while it looks a lot like Pokemon, but it is very different. I am not any good at these games when it comes to catching and battling. It was struggle for me. My kids were trying to show me how to play and I am slowly starting to understand the game more. It has been interesting. After a few levels the game became more interesting as you need find healing items and game money. You will love the mini games and hunting down all the fun Yo-kai with their own personalities.
Snowed in or having the winter blues, you can find both of these games retail for around $39 for Mario and Luigi Paper Jam and Yo-Kai Watch.

The Smurfs are back for a brand new adventure, meet all your favorite characters in the new 3DS Surfs game.
Help Papa Smurf, Smurfette, Hefty Smurf and all their friends rebuild their village, but Gargamel and his cat Azrael are lurking around so beware not to get caught while searching for supplies in their dangerous lab.
Unlock mini games and all new characters.
*** This game was a bit confusing to me at first as you mainly just build Smurf Village. So it seemed a little slow, but after the mini games started unlocking it started to get more lively.
The mini games consist of breaking wood, collecting rocks and more to help build Smurf Village.
My kids love being able to design and create their own surf village. The graphics bring it all to life on the Nintendo 3DS, my kids said they felt like they could really be there. This game is perfect for smaller kids as it seems to be just at the right on par with their age. For Tweens and teens it might be to easy.
You can get The Surfs on Amazon for $26.99

Chibi-Robo Zip Lash is a tiny hero. Chibi-Robo must swing his plug to whip enemies, reach far-off platforms and solve environmental puzzles, as well as collect upgrades to extend his plug for getting hard-to-reach collectibles and uncovering hidden areas.
*** This game has been so addicting for me, I am just determined to beat a level. Every level and world is totally different with different challenges. Chibi Robo uses his Zip Lash to defeat enemies, as well as swing from area to area and more.
My kids love this game is challenging but fun and that you can use the Amiibo with it and change Chibi-Robo up.
We are still in the process of getting through levels, but one thing I don’t really like about the game is you don’t get to choose the level to play. You spin a wheel and that chooses how many spaces you move. So we have been stuck playing the same levels that have already been completed. You can buy panels to add to the wheel to make sure you get to the level you need, but that becomes a pain. If you get really stuck on a level you can choose to pay through it with the coins that you have collected.
