We love to hang out as a family, it’s something that no one really does enough of, but it is always fun to discover different and fun ways to do so. The ideals are to go outside and play some games together soccer, biking, Frisbee, things that make everyone run around (to tire the kids out!) but with fall here soon it will be getting darker earlier and soon it will be cold . . . yuck!

When it is colder and darker earlier outside, sometimes the four of us will play a video game. We have so much fun when we have a game that all four of us can play at the same time. A great example of this is last winter the four of us would play Super Mario Brothers a couple of times per week..It was a blast! Kora & Logan designated specific spots for each of us on the couch and we each had our own character that we had to play with every time. The kids had an absolute blast, and so did Dave and I!
That’s why I’m excited to tell you about a new video game. . . Rayman Legends. Right off the bat we were happy to see that this is a game you can play with up to five users on Wii U or four on most other platforms. The graphics look amazing, colorful and plenty of fun.
Your character, Rayman and/or one of his buddies, is on a quest to protect the Glad of Dreams where the nightmares have multiplied and spread. There are new monsters to take on, and these monsters are the stuff of legends! Dragons, sea monsters, giant toads and other evils are waiting to battle! I know all the evil and monster talk may scare some little ones, but relax, this game is rated E for everyone 10+. It does has some comic mischief and cartoon violence, but nothing too crazy.
The characters in the game, Rayman for example are quite unique, somehow they manage to survive without a neck, arms, and legs, but have no fear, they still have a head, hands and feet, even though they aren’t all attached!
Check out Rayman Legends here and also watch this short video for a fun review of the game and an interesting idea for how to solve the missing neck, arms and legs issue!
I would love to hear how and if you incorporate video games into your child’s time, share your story in the comments!
