Celebrating Groundhog Day With The Chipmunks

philWell it’s Groundhog Day, so Happy Groundhog Day to you all.

In case you missed the news, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow and declared six more weeks of winter. I am not too thrilled with today’s results. I am definitely ready for sunshine.

Do you do anything special on this day that is devoted to the rodents of the world?

I found some fun Groundhog Day links for you to share with your children.

Your children can also celebrate with the rodents they have come to know and love. It’s the perfect day for watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse or Pixar’s Ratatouille. There is also the lovely Chipmunk trio Alvin & The Chipmunks, who are sure to get everyone dancing.

In celebration of rodents everywhere, we have a fun Groundhog Day giveaway just for you – Alvin & The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel video game for Wii and Nintendo DS.

Wii My daughter loves Alvin and The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel because of its introduction of Brittany, Jeannette, and Eleanor, The Chipettes. I knew she would be thrilled to have the chance to review this game for the Wii.

I was right, she has been loving it. I have even been having fun watching her play the game, because she gets really into it. It is quite entertaining. It almost reminds me of Dance Dance Revolution. She has to get into the rhythm and move her arms to the pattern of arrows on the screen. It can get a bit challenging, which is nice. I like it when games help to teach my kids that practice makes perfect. My boys had fun right along with her as they danced around the living room to the game’s soundtrack.

    OMG – my kids would LOVE LOVE LOVE me (and you) if I won. We went to see this over Christmas with the cousins (who are twins and 5 and sound just like the Chipmunks). After the show, it was new years eve, we had to go get the cd so we could sing and dance the night away – so FUN! Thanks for the chance!

    I’ve been a subscriber since last year’s awesome blog party. Thanks for another fun chance to win the Wii Version of the Chipmunks game for my grandchildren. :)

  5. says

    My kids love Alvin and The Chipmunks. We’ve yet to see the squeakquel though. My daughter has a DS and I think she’d LOVE a copy of this game. Fingers crossed that maybe I won’t have to buy it. *LOL*

  6. Tracey Byram says

    I took Liz and Tristan to see this movie over the Christmas holidays and they loved it. I could use the game in either platform since we have both a Wii and a DS.

    My best friend had her second baby yesterday and it would be so much fun to get the Nintendo DS game for her older child so he dosen’t feel left out and to commemorate the day his brother was born :) Thanks for the chance to win!

  8. Kathleen says

    Either the Wii or DS game would be fine as we have both systems but if I must choose, I’d prefer the DS game, thanks.

    My poor neglected children don’t have DSes, so we would need the Wii version.

    My son is SO IN LOVE with Alvin & The Chipmunks, at Christmas, I probably listened to the Chipmunks Christmas album 100 times lol

    Thank you so much for the opportunity! :)

  10. Tawnda says

    my daughter has a ds so that would be my first pick… but her friend has a wii so I could find quick homes for either…

  11. Dave says

    We would like the Wii version please. This looks like fun. Thank you for the chance to win. Happy Groundhog Day. (Which also happens to be my favorite Bill Murray movie.)

  12. Brandy says

    I’d love to win this for my kids. We have both systems but I guess I’d want the DS version. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  13. Jill Myrick says

    I would love to have the Wii game for my children.

    This movie is all my 7yr old can talk about. We have a wii and a DS so either one would be great. But if I had to choose one I’ll go with the wii so the whole family can play together.

  15. Sherry E. says

    Woo-Hoo! My daughters favorite movie! If I won I would like Alvin and The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel video game for the Wii! Thanks so much!

    My family would LOVE this game! We have both a Wii and a Nintendo DS, but I think they would enjoy the Wii game better. Thanks for this amazing oppurtunity!

  17. Jodene Gildea says

    My daughter would love this – she loves Alvin – we would love either game as we have both Wii and DS and don’t own either game.

  18. Lucy Schwartz says

    I would like the Wii if I would win. As for Groundhog Day,It is 6 weeks of winter if he sees his shadow and 6 weeks of winter if he doesn’t.

  19. Erica C. says

    I’d prefer it on the Wii for both girls to play, but my older would love it on DS too. Haha…also, I could play too if it’s on the Wii!

    If I won I would like Alvin and The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel video game for the Wii! Thanks so much!
