Any time you can supply a new video game to a preschool child, they seem to go crazy with enthusiasm. It’s great when you can capitalize on this enthusiasm to help reinforce healthy habits. This game’s message promotes Healthy Habits in the form of physical activity, good nutrition, hygiene, and rest and relaxation. Ready, Set Grover! uses several Sesame Street characters such as Grover, Elmo and Abby Cadabby to guide your preschooler through various activities. I loved the sheer number of games and activities included as part of the game. It seemed as though we went from one activity to another without duplicating an activity. The game provides a short audio visual tutorial before each activity to direct your preschooler how to complete the task. My son took the directions and knew what he had to do to complete the various tasks. He has played a few Wii games before and really loved Ready, Set Grover!
The Wii game comes with a Grover Remote cover which is super cute and easier to hold. The cover also hides unnecessary buttons and therefore aids your preschooler in touching the correct buttons, reducing wasted time and parent intervention. Another great feature is the “Parents Page” where parents can check progress on activities and customize specific games for their kids based on their preferences or set limits for play. This new Sesame Street game has a great message and is really fun for your toddler, so if you allow your toddler or preschooler to play Wii, this is worth a look.
