Lalaloopsy: Sew Magical! Sew Cute!

The surprise hit doll of 2010 (with a new version out for the 2011 holiday season) has a super cute video game for the Nintendo DS.

What It Is

Lalaloopsy: Sew Magical! Sew Cute! allows kids to explore the Lalaloopsy world as one of their favorite Lalaloopsy characters. All 12 dolls in the real-world product line are included in the game as playable characters so kids can select from such favorites as Mittens Fluff ‘N’ Stuff, Crumbs Sugar Cookie (my personal fav.), Tippy Tumblelina, Bea Spells and the rest as they set out on such adventures as finding their pets and growing flowers.

Why It’s Fun

The game combines mini-games, puzzles and virtual pet elements in a world that is designed to evoke the handcrafted look of the real-world dolls. Kids can create crafts and gifts in the game using the DS’ touch screen and stylus. It’s like a kid’s Etsy video game.

There are 12 craft activities in the game that are specific to each doll. Additionally, each of the playable doll characters has her own personality, pet and home filled with items specific to the fabric used to make her.

Who’s Going To Love It

This is a perfect game for the 3 - 7 year old Lalaloopsy fan. Game directions are spoken out loud so kids that can’t read yet can still play the game on their own. Kids that are unfamiliar with Lalaloopsy but love crafting might also enjoy this game.

What To Be Aware Of

Lalaloopsy: Sew Magical! Sew Cute! is in stores now and rated E for Everyone. The game includes a limited edition Mini Lalaloopsy doll in the box.

This is a great activity-driven game and not a competition-based game. Kids are rewarded frequently throughout the game and there is no winning or losing.

Replayability

Kids can return repeatedly to the pet care area of the game.
