One of our favorite new kids’ movies in theatres is How To Train Your Dragon from DreamWorks Animation. I think it has a great message and we love that Hiccup the dragon never actually speaks throughout the entire movie. It’s a sweet story of unique friendship and of thinking outside the box and embracing change. It’s not surprising to me that my 7-year-old also loves the new How To Train Your Dragon Nintendo DS game! You might think it’s a “boy” oriented game, but she enjoys it.
Key game features:
- The “Create Your Dragon” feature allows players to customize six different types of dragons, providing virtually unending combinations of ways to modify your dragon’s appearance. This is our favorite feature!
- Level up your dragon’s speed, power, fire and other abilities through intense training to face the critical Viking challenge of becoming the ultimate dragon trainer.
- Explore this epic world of Berk as Hiccup or Astrid in single player Adventure Mode.
- Use your arsenal of dragons to battle your friends in multiplayer action in Arena Mode via the DS’ Wi-Fi connection.
If your kids enjoyed the movie, then they will love the DS game!
