With our recent move and so much change going on – Lennox has had a tough transition into a new school, new friends, new house and about 10 other things, plus she’s 5! That’s a lot of change for a little 5-year-old. Lennox spends almost all of her days at school, learning and working hard. Most of it is technology free as well. So when she gets home or on the weekend, she wants downtime just like we all do. In theory I’d love to work on extra things with her, do something educational or even get outside more – but really, she just needs a ‘brain break’ – and lets be honest – so do mom and dad! So usually that means she is free to watch some tv, play on the computer or play video games.
She recently got a “hand me down” Nintendo 3DS, so we have started looking for games that are age appropriate for her to play. Some of the games are easy to play but there are too many on-screen directions that she can’t follow. However, when we received Yo-kai Watch, it seemed like a great fit for her. There was not too much story for her to figure out and read and she could jump right into the game. She eagerly sat down and played it, with a a little help from Dad! I could hear them in the other room talking about what the Yo-Kai were doing and her character, which she created, Eleanor. Where she picked the same Eleanor, I have no idea!
If you are unfamiliar with Yo-Kai Watch, here is a little more information: Yo-kai Watch is a Japanese video game that is just now starting in the US. Yo-kai are mischievous little creatures that inhabit the world. The player must find and befriend them to create teams and battles versus other Yo-kai. Yo-kai Watch is made exclusively for Nintendo 2DS, 3DS and 3DSXL for $39.99 wherever video games are sold.
