Win a copy of Animal Planet Emergency Vets for Nintendo DS

Does your child have a Nintendo DS?

Last fall, Nintendo sent my son Jackson a Nintendo DS Lite so that we could review various games. Jackson was six at the time, and had been begging me for a DS. He was saving his allowance to buy one when Nintendo sent us the DS Lite. Perfect timing. (Jackson was beyond ecstatic of course — and he used the money he had saved to buy his first game, Lego Star Wars.)

And it is because of moments like this…


…that I love his Nintendo DS almost as much as Jackson does!

On long car rides, on airplane rides, or even on afternoons at the cabin like the one pictured above, it is so wonderful to enjoy the peace and quiet of Jackson enjoying his Nintendo DS!

But since Jackson’s favorite game is his Lego Star Wars, I am always interested in him trying out games that aren’t based on good vs evil, etc. I like it when that little box of wonder is challenging his mind in other ways than just zapping the bad guys.

So I have been pleased to see Jackson enjoy games like Brain Age 2, which is actually for adults, but Jackson had fun trying it out, and Nintendogs, where you get to raise and train puppies!

The latest game Jackson tested out was Animal Planet Emergency Vets for Nintendo DS.

We took it on our trip to the cabin this past May, and Jackson – along with our friends’ two kids who were vacationing with us – was hooked by the game.

They spent hours taking turns pretending to be veterinarians by performing veterinary procedures on different animals, like teeth cleaning, medicating and operating with the NDS stylus and playing games that challenged their memory and dexterity.

This “E” rated game was a hit with ALL of us!
