Friday Favorites: Mario Party Mini Games

Mario Party is one of those series that really tests friendships, like Monopoly. Most of the earlier installments of the series were much better, in my opinion, with mini games and the boards that you travel around for stars. With Mario Party Top 100 out today, I thought I’d share some of my favorite Mario […]

Mario Party Star Rush Game Review

Title: Mario Party Star Rush Company: Nintendo  Console: Nintendo 3DS Release Date: November 2016 How we got the game: I got it as a gift The Main Game I’d like to say that this game plays like the other Mario Party games, but it doesn’t.

A Nintendo Survey of Parents

Happy Tuesday! I was scrolling through Nintendo’s blog yesterday and noticed something interesting. They surveyed parents and apparently the majority of them said they don’t have enough time to play with their kids. I’m a preschool teacher in a special education classroom. I’ve met a wide variety of parents. Good ones, bad ones, smart ones, […]
