  The Smurfs Dance Party
 
My grandchildren are playing with the Smurfs that I bought for my son. A testimonial to the lasting charm of these little blue people, The Smurfs movie and The Smurfs Dance Party have proven that there are still lots of assets in these 30 year old characters.

The game plot little there is of it has Papa Smurf lead a group of Smurfs to big, bad New York City to rescue an errant Smurf. Some of the more familiar Smurfs take part in the rescue, Clumsy, Smurfette, Brainy, Grouchy, Gutsy begins to sound like the Seven Dwarfs. As the title implies, it's a dance party. There are three modes Story, Dance and a Freeze and Shake mode which is reminiscent of a street game called Statues. More than twenty original Smurf songs give plenty of tempo choices for dancing.

The game is most likely to be appreciated by the younger set under five. My grandchildren, five and seven, prefer the sophistication of Ubisoft's Just Dance 2.

Cost About $30.00
