❄Holiday Gift Guide❄Scholastic Nintendo DS games Review

For nearly 90 years, teachers and parents have recognized Scholastic as a trusted name in learning. Scholastic continues this successful history by remaining focused on encouraging children to learn to read and love to learn, helping teachers carry out their important jobs and supporting parents in their role as their child’s first teacher.

                Scholastic has been a very well known name in our house as I am sure in many of yours too. Growing up I remember waiting for my monthly scholastic book order from school. It makes me very happy that my kids are able to take part in looking through scholastic order forms to pick out what fun books they might be interested in reading and go to the book fairs.  My son school just recently had their book fair and to my amazement they had some video games for sale. Video games are not usually something I would think has any educational value but since they had the Scholastic name on them I know they do. 

  Scholastic was very kind to send me a few of their Nintendo DS games to review. The first one I want to tell you about is ISPY Universe! We love ISPY books there are so much fun and it is so cool they have video games you can play for hours! After doing an ISPY book a few times you remember where everything is with the video game there are over 400 different things to find! My son loves to solve things and this game is perfect for him he has so much fun playing it and solving riddles and finding the objects he even has been playing it. I love how it has a hint feature so if hes is having trouble finding the object he can get a hint.

The next game I want to tell you about is Digging for Dinosaurs Just seeing the case this game was an immediate hit with my son he couldn't wait to play it. He loved digging for fossils to build dinosaurs i love how it tells you what dinosaur you build and facts about it. He also loves the games where he earns digging points to be able to unearth more fossils. 

Engage as a Triceratops battling the mighty Tyrannosaurus Rex, an Eoraptor hunting its prey or an Archaeopeteryx taking flight. Each dinosaur discovery unlocks a game that allows players to be one of these legendary creatures. With each adventure, kids separate fact from myth as they learn the true tales about 21 different dinosaurs roaming the earth millions of years ago!

And the last game Is My Amusement Park It is a game where you build and run your own amusement park from building rides to fulfilling food orders. Who knew running a business could be so fun.  My son enjoys being able to build his own park and really loves the logic games and puzzles he is doing great on the game. Looks like I have a future amusement park owner on my hands.

All of these games are fun to play and educational! My son really enjoys playing them and even has my daughter interested in them every time she hears a new dinosaurs name she repeats it shes learning new words just hearing it so you can imagine how much my son is learning playing them!
