Yoshi's New Island new DS game

We are super excited in this house to have been chosen to be part of the Nintendo Family UK Blogger Network!
We've now got quite a few Nintendo products, and the girls love them all. The Wii U is used almost daily by the girls (and supposedly by me, to do Wii Fit, ahem...), and it's been lovely to see their teamwork and co-operation when they're on it together.

Recently we were welcomed 'to the fold' with a gorgeous box of Nintendo biscuits, and the promise of some future reviews to bring you.

So now we can let you know all about Yoshi's New Island game for the 3DS system (this also plays on 2DS). There's a great trailer for the game which gives you an idea of what it's all about.
This game is described as a 'magical journey with Baby Mario and the Yoshi clan in a quest to find Baby Luigi'. The idea is that the player can use giant eggs called Mega-Eggs to destroy blocks and pipes, revealing hidden secrets like keys and coins. The more things you destroy, the more lives you get and the bigger the egg grows - a giant egg just like this one, which is waiting to make an appearance at Easter in our house...

Tamsin (who is 8) has been playing this avidly on her 2DS, and her view is that it is the perfect balance of fun and just enough frustration, as it's not all so easy you can do it in one go. You need to persevere sometimes, but not to the point where it gets annoying! A good life skill, I reckon.
I'm sure all Nintendo fans will love this - but equally as good for those who have not yet been introduced to the world of Mario/Yoshi.

We were sent the above product for the purpose of this review, but have not received payment. All the views expressed here are our own.
