Holiday Gift Guide: Games for Nintendo DS and Wii!


"Mama’s Combo Pack Volume 1 for Nintendo DS™ serves up a recipe for fun by combining the original best-selling classicCooking Mama with Camping Mama: Outdoor Adventures. In Cooking Mama, players use their stylus as the ultimate cooking utensil to create more than 75 real dishes under Mama’s watchful eye. Once they’ve mastered the kitchen, fans join Mama and her family on an exciting wilderness getaway. Players take the role of Mama’s son or daughter as they set up camp, interact with wildlife, endure forces of nature, and hunt for treasure through 38 levels and 100 different games.

Get creative both in and out of the kitchen with Mama’s Combo Pack Volume 2 for Nintendo DS™ that includes Cooking Mama 2: Dinner with Friends and Crafting Mama. In Cooking Mama 2: Dinner with Friends, Mama and her finicky friends will taste every dish and judge each kitchen creation. Players can make more than 80 new recipes from macaroons to shark fin soup, and customize Mama and her kitchen with unlockable goodies. Then it’s time to get crafty with Mama! As the premiere dedicated crafting game, Crafting Mama features 40 different projects where players are challenged to sew, mold, paint and cut with the stylus as they create jewelry, quilts, candles, mugs and even kaleidoscopes!

Mama’s 2-Pack brings the culinary action to the Wii™ system with Cooking Mama Cook Off and Cooking Mama World Kitchen. The Wii Remote™ transforms into a universal cooking tool as players chop, grate, slice, stir and roll in motion-based cooking activities. Players whip up kitchen fun in Cooking Mama Cook Off as they go head-to-head against other chefs in two-player competition. In the Wii™ sequel, Cooking Mama World Kitchen, fans will enjoy Mama’s 3D makeover, fresh recipes from around the world, hilarious kitchen mini-games and new gameplay modes that will transform even the most uncoordinated chef into a master culinary artist!


Hello Kitty Picnic with Sanrio Friends invites players to join Hello Kitty and Sanrio Friends as they prepare for the perfect picnic party. Play 10 mini-games including Hidden Object, Spot the Difference, and Picnic Blanket Checkers as you collect goodies for the picnic. Explore and decorate whimsical environments including Hello Kitty’s bedroom, kitchen, and more. Earn apples to receive special items to customize Hello Kitty’s outfits. Interact directly with Hello Kitty using the 3DS touch screen and listen as the game guides you along. Invite your friends to join the fun in a variety of multiplayer modes as you play with your favorite Sanrio characters including My Melody®, Keroppi®, Chococat®, Badtz-Maru®, Little Twin Stars®, and more!"

What we thought:  We reviewed the Wii version of Mama's 2 pack and the DS version of Hello Kitty Picnic.  Both had cute graphics and entertaining mini-games.  Most games were easy enough for the kiddos and they continue to ask to play them which is always a good sign:)  Who wants to waste money on a game that will only be played once or twice?  If you have a Wii or DS, check out these great games.  They would make fun stocking stuffers:)
