I large box arrived the other day and I was perplexed at what was in it. Knowing what I was waiting on I couldn’t think of anything that would have been in the size that was sitting on my kitchen counter.
This is what awaited us in the box. This was one of the nicest displays of thanks I’ve received to review an item. Instead of simply sending us a HOP : The Movie Nintendo DS Game we received this cute Easter basket with candy filled eggs, a chocolate bunny, and a cute HOP bath set. Attached was a note thanking us for reviewing the game.
This game is one of our “shared” games. The boys were ready to take on the challenge of the review but Honey was just as eager. I asked Honey what she thought after the game and she said it was fun but she needed her brothers help with a few places that you need to be able to read.
The boys said it was fun and that the point (in their words) is to save Easter by completing different challenges and levels. The thing about my oldest son is if he doesn’t like a game he has no problem telling me it “sucks”. That was not the case with HOP, he really seemed to enjoy the game. All of them are ready to see the movie.
This game is a prefect item to be found in an Easter basket Easter morning and Shibley Smiles gives it a big thumbs up!
