Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Fun for the whole family

Initially rented as a lark, the whole family gets right into this game. It's one of the more physically active wii games, which really increases the fun (and decreases the lazy video game playing guilt). I really appreciate that our 9 year old twins, my husband (a VERY avid gamer) and myself (up until we had the wii my video game playing was windows solitare) can all play and have a good time playing this game together.
