Next up in my Holiday Gift Guide is a fun dance/workout game for kids called Nickelodeon Dance 2 from 2K Play.
The game is so much fun for kids. Lauren especially liked seeing her favorite Nickelodeon characters on the screen dancing with them. It includes characters from Dora the Explorer, The Fresh Beat Band, Team Umizoomi and Bubble Guppies and more.
The kids really had fun playing it and especially liked playing Freeze Dance. Evan plays Freeze Dance at the end of Hip Hop class and it is always his favorite part so he was excited to hear that the game had it too.
Here is some video of them doing Freeze Dance.
There are 30 party tracks include chart-toppers from hit Nickelodeon TV shows like The Fresh Beat Band, Bubble Guppies, Dora the Explorer, Team Umizoomi, and The Backyardigans. The kids really got moving to it. I thought they might think it was too young for them but my 5 and 7 year old had a fun time playing.
Lauren enjoyed the workouts too. She said that it was so much fun and got her sweating. So good to see kids playing games and being active at the same time.
It really was a heart healthy workout with stretching, lunges, jumping jacks and more.
Here is Lauren doing the workout:
Original dance routines developed especially for kids with the guidance of an Emmy-recognized children's dance choreographer. It is available for Wii, Kinect for Xbox 360 and priced at $39.99.
