My boys don't have any pets yet. They both love animals so why not let them learn how to take care of a pet while doing something else they love, playing the Nintendo DS. Little B has owned a DS Lite for a couple years now. I didn't think he would be interested in any of the Ubisoft Petz games so we never bought any. We now own Petz Bunnyz Bunch for the Nintendo DS and I kind of wish we had some of the Petz games sooner. For the past month the boys have been
fighting over taking turns playing the Petz Bunnyz Bunch. It's so easy (and fun) that with my help even Baby B plays the game pretty well. I was all ready a Ubisoft fan but now that I know they have games my 3 ½ year old can play and be non violent I love them even more. It's difficult sometimes to find games that are fun for my guys but I like to make sure they are at least some kind of educational fun going on. With the Petz Bunnyz Bunch your child(ren) can learn the 8 different breeds of bunnyz but it teaches them how to care (as much as you can) for a virtual pet. I remember the Nano pets I had years ago. All you could do with those was feed them and play 1 or 2 games. With the Ubisoft Petz Bunnyz Bunch you are more interactive with the bunnyz. You can even send your bunnyz to Petz World Online, and be one of the few with a bunny to play with! In Petz World Online, your petz will be able to travel the world, set out on extraordinary adventures and meet tons of other petz.
Now to the meat and taters (main reasons) we enjoy the Petz Bunnyz Bunch Nintendo DS game. You start out at the adoption center where you choose your breed, gender and name of your bunny. Right now we have 2 bunnys. Just look how cute they are. Meet Oreo and Stripe.
Oreo is a female Dutch bunny that likes raspberries but doesn't like carrots or radishes. A rabbit that doesn't like carrots? Yeah. She likes some of her toys but she gets mad if you try to get her to play with the red ball or pop bubbles. She likes baths,watching tv and loves to be rubbed on her neck. She's really good at playing the 4 mini games.
This little guy is Stripe. Stripe is a male Dutch bunny. He doesn't have a favorite food yet but we know he doesn't like carrots or lettuce. What do my bunnyz have against carrots? Strange little critters. Stripe likes playing with his box and playing with bubbles. He also likes baths, tv, to be brushed and rubbed. He's not as much of a game player as Oreo but he still does well when he does decide to play the mini games. The more mini games you are successful at playing the more coins you earn. The more coins you have the more you can buy for your bunnyz. You have to buy food, shampoo, toys and you can even buy furniture for your bunnyz.
Just like a child, each bunny has its own personality and will show you just what they want and will show you just how they feel. If you take good care of your bunnyz they will surprise you with games of hide and seek and other gifts. We will be traveling on a 8 hour ride this weekend and Little B has all ready asked to take the DS and the Petz Bunnyz Bunch game with us. The only down side with the Petz Bunnyz Bunch (not really a problem with the game) is I think we are going to have to buy another DS and more Petz games so the boys aren't arguing over who's turn it is to play with their bunnyz haha. There may be a Nintendo 3DS purchase coming in our near future. I guess them having the Petz bunnyz is good enough for now. I'm surprised they haven't asked us for a real bunny yet.
You can purchase the Ubisoft Petz Bunnyz Bunch at most retail stores where video games are sold (such as Toys R Us or Walmart) or you can find it online at sites such as Amazon.com. The retail value of the Ubisoft Petz Bunnyz Bunch game for the Nintendo DS is $29.99 but Amazon has Petz Bunnyz Bunch right now for $28.54.
