Fashion games to play

The fashion games to play are on the increase.The latest trend to sweep the country has been the Nintendo Wii.Apparently Ubisoft has developed a game where a group of you can all be baby sitters,each babysitter gets a baby and you are free to dress the baby as you want!! Ubisofts line if games run from being an imaginary babysitter to a vetinerarian.Im just posting a little bit about these imaginary games as it too long for me to type out. Another Wii workout can be had with “High School Musical Senior Year Dance,” which lets fans of the runaway Disney hit take part in the show within the show. “We have songs from ‘High School Musical 1, 2 and 3’ in the game. So you're gonna be able to dance to all your favorite songs,” said Derek Dutilly of Disney Interactive Studios. “It's just about dancing to those songs and learning the choreography. Just having fun with the energy and excitement that is the ‘High School Musical’ franchise." For energy and excitement on a much smaller scale, there is “Disney Fairies: Tinker Bell.” The game recognizes the date and time entered into the handheld game console and then only allows certain activities during the day or night. It even throws special celebrations on days like Halloween or birthdays. “It allows girls to enter the world of Pixie Hollo, to play as the beloved Tinker Bell, and interact with all her fairy friends. So you repair things, you paint ladybugs, you collect dew drops,” said Victoria Lerner of Disney Interactive Studios. Finally, “Flock” will excite all kids who've dreamed of flying a UFO in order to either help or harass herds of cute animals. To make the game more appealing to girls and women, the virtual landscape for the herding game looks like a giant, pillowy comforter. “The whole goal [of ‘Flock’] is that you have to herd animals, sheep, cows, chickens and pigs to the 'Mother Flocker,' which is a mother ship,” said Kraig Kujawa of Capcom. “And I think the way that it looks -- that kind of clothy, sort of touchy kind of cloth thing where you kind of poke and pull at stuff -- is really making people get excited about it.” In another nod to women, if all the male sheep are disorganized and not going where you want them to, bring over a pretty little pink sheep and she can lead them anywhere -- even to their own demise. So the world of make believe games is getting big business!!! seeing as my grandaughter is apparently having a Nintendo Wii for her birthday soon..what do you think of these reality games..im interested to know????

My eldest had a wii when it first came out but he was not enamoured of it and had sold it within a few months. I must admit it quite interests me with all the fitness things that we can do on them and I would like one in the house just for that. My other kids are 7,6 and 2 but they are not interested in the wii yet, they have asked for a nintendo ds each for christmas so far.

No Wii ,but I have a game boy,and love germbuster,I can play for hours on it,there are so many ways to bust those germs.But the good game is the brain training,im getting a lot better at the games on the brain training one now,it takes time and a lot of learning though.
