This giveaway is now over. The winner is jeanine. Congrats!
Madison loves when I get Wii games to review. She especially loves it when it's a character that she watches like SpongeBob Squarepants. I was a little worried with how she would do with the new SpongeBob's Boating Bash. It is a driving game, and those type of games tend to frustrate her. At 6, she's not a great driver (I'm hoping that will improve by the time she's 16. LOL).
SpongeBob has tried to pass his boating test about 78 times and has yet to pass. The game shows you a shady shark character that talks SpongeBob into taking the zany D.R.I.V.E course. The course is super crazy. You drive around in boat mobile in a demolition style party. The goal is to be the last boat standing! You get to choose from 6 boat mobiles that can be customized. Spongebob and Patrick are just two of the characters you can choose to be too! This game can be played with up 4 players, so you can a ton of fun as a family!
Now, the game is rated E for everyone, and I can definitely say that's a good rating. Madison, my 6 year old, could play this game. She has had no problems playing this. The driving doesn't frustrate her too much, and she found a ton of other little secrets of this game. One of the things you can do is take the characters and play musical instruments. It's almost like having a band in your living (I'm not sure if that's a good thing at times. LOL). Madison likes this game quite a bit.
In case the Easter bunny didn't bring you everything you wanted, I've arranged for one lucky reader to win a basket filled with SpongeBob goodies, candy, and a copy of this game for both the Wii and the Nintendo DS (see picture above.) Here's what you need to do (please leave each thing in it's own comment):
