  • Enchanting Environments: Set on a fictional island, the unique and lush sceneries will surely set the mood for family vacation fun.

    I am not a huge video game person though I have always owned at least one since the first Nintendo came out back in the 1980's. I think kids spend way to much time on them when they should be being active outdoors.  For Christmas we got the Wii and I absolutely LOVE it. We play as a family and it is something (even though I limit the amount of time) I don't mind Aaron playing. I love watching him get up and move around yet still get the enjoyment of playing a video game. I got the chance to try Vacation Isle: Beach Party in our home with my family.The setup are super easy and game play is easy enough my four year old had a blast. There was no crying because he could not figure out how to play or because *gasp* he died.




    Aaron's favorite game was the Fire Dancing and it was so funny watching him dance on the Wii; while Ken and I agree our favorite is the Ski Jump. With most Wii games I have to set things up for Aaron but on this one once the game is on he can do the rest! I also love the versatility of this game! You can use the Wii Balance Board or just the nun chuck and controller. I will admit though it is easier to imagine you truly skiing if your using the balance board.

    You can buy Vacation Isle: Beach Party most fine retailers or online and it retails for $29.99
