Do you have a Wii? Do you have older children who play the Wii? Do you also have younger children who want to play the Wii? Then this is for you. :-)
I had the pleasure (or should I say Hope had the pleasure) of reviewing the new Wii game designed just for her.
Since I am video game-challenged, I asked my 12 yr old son to set the TV up so we could play the game. (I used to be the one setting up the VCRs the Ataris, etc. Now I feel old and stupid.) He then proceeded to help Hope create her own character. Hope had a blast!
Hope had a little bit of difficulty using the Wii remote to control her character, but she has mild CP that affects her entire left side, so many things are challenging for her. With a little help from her brother, though, she did great.
