Jump Start Get Moving: Family Fitness Game Review and Giveaway

I was thrilled when Jennifer approached me about doing another review for JumpStart!  We love the products that we've gotten from Jump Start!  And this latest one has been a HIT!  Our family LOVES using our Wii and its been great to incorporate the Wii in our Friday "Family Nights"!  We started doing Family Nights around the beginning of December and over the last few months, we've been more consistent with our planning!  With Jump Start's newest Wii Game Get Moving Family Fitness, its given us the ability to allow our older children to safe and family friendly playing.

"Get Moving Family Fitness, JumpStart is making fitness fun too! Discover the ultimate family sports game with fitness expert and mom of 4, Brooke Burke. With more than 15 sports challenges in 11 exotic arenas, Get Moving is the fun, new way to keep your family active!" 

Some key features in our new Wii game make it all the more exciting! You can design your own character to race and play, build customized routines for extra challenge, compete head to head or play solo, play underwater, on a farm, in Egypt or 8 other exotic locations, and access expert tips for more ways to stay healthy!

Some more quick facts:
- The game is in stores now!
- It will be sold for $29.99
- It's rated E for Everyone with Comic Mischief by the ESRB

We have definitely had fun with this one....  We each created our own character and had fun with that.  You get oodles of options from hair color, clothing, shoes... you name it!

Also, the activities that you get to pick are engaging.  The colors are bright and vivid!  And user friendly!  Even Peanut has been able to play and he is just barely 2.5 yrs old and has little to no experience playing on computer games or the Wii!

This game has definitely been a blessing to our family!  We have enjoyed it so much!  The kids ask for it by name!

Now, here comes the BEST part... a giveaway!  The fabulous people at Jump Start have made an extra copy of this great Wii game available for my readers!!!  How awesome!!!

LikeWear Review and Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed and the winner has been notified.  Thanks to all who entered!  

When MomSelect asked for bloggers to review and participate in a giveaway with LikeWear, I was intrigued.  I had never heard of LikeWear, but it involved children's clothing, so I was hooked!  As a mother of 3 little boys, durable and fun children's clothing is a must for my children!   Once I was selected to participate, I was pleasantly surprised that the shirts were fun and I had a hard time picking out which designs I wanted!  

I chose the "Give Peas a Chance" with the Jolly Green Giant!  So cute!  

And, of course, Bubbie instantly picked these for him and his brother.....

"Big Boy Bike" is definitely their favorite!  

LikeWear is a modern day fusion of a high quality, casual boutique children's clothing line and a plan direct sales company.  We offer a flexible, fun way to have your own clothing "store" without the risk of carrying inventory.  Their fun, exclusive line of clothing and accessories is loved by kids- and only available through their team of independent LikeWear reps and a handful of leading boutique stores.  

With fun design features, family friendly and well-known brands like Lucky Charms, Tootsie Roll, Jr Mints, Dots, Honda motorcycles, the Pillsbury Doughboy and many others, it isn't hard to find something for everyone!
