I hope everyone has had a chance to check out MIBR 2011 Holiday Gift Guide—it’s full of fabulous gift ideas for all members of the family!


My Lil’ Man is all about video games and though I do limit the time he spends playing them, I’m convinced that he would spend all day every day playing if I would let him! 


Needless to say, video games are always a great gift idea for Lil’ Man—so they are always at the top of his wish list for birthdays and Christmas!  This year for Christmas Lil’ Man has asked for just about every video game known to man, so when I was given the opportunity to review a couple of new video games I just couldn’t say no!


We received three video games for our review:  Punch Time Explosion XL, Sing 4: The Hits Edition and Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town  and I can’t wait  to tell all of you about them!

Lil’ Man loves Cartoon Network (and Samurai Jack, and Johnny Bravo are two of his favorites) so I know this game will be a huge hit in our house!  And I don’t know about anyone else, but I can’t wait for the next family game night so that we can all play Sing 4: The Hits Edition—I see a good time in our future!
