This game is sort of like Twister meets Simon Says. Lay the Hullabaloo pads around on the floor about two 'kid's feet' away from each other. The pads are different shapes and colors and have pictures and words on them. Turn on the game console and the cheerful music begins, a happy voice welcomes you to the game and then gives the simple directions you'll need to play. "Jump on a square shape," "Slide over to a red shape," "Hop to a shape with an animal on it" and so on. Then it might tell you to freeze, or to put a body part on one pad, and then a different body part on another. Then, it'll tell you that if you are on a particular pad at the end of that round, you are the winner. We found it to be fun, and easy to understand--though we did wonder how long it might hold a child's interest. --Megan Sullivan

Parenting Tip: Keep a box of musical objects and instruments in a corner of your gifted child's room or some other spot in your home.  When your child is looking for something to do, he or she can find something in the box!  Encourage your child to go to the music box to relieve stress, anxiety, or to express joy.

Karaoke Revolution

From the Manufacturer:
Take center stage with Konami's Karaoke Revolution! Turning the PlayStation 2 into the ultimate karaoke party machine, Karaoke Revolution is the only interactive karaoke game to score gamers on pitch and rhythm with a virtual audience reacting in real time to their performance. Designed for amateur singers of all ages and all levels of musical abilities, Karaoke Revolution brings the only interactive karaoke experience into the gamer's living room.

With more than 30 hit licensed songs from the 70's, 80's, 90's and today, gamers will have a chance to sing their way from small clubs to the ultimate concert venue when performing in "Showtime mode." For those pop stars that can't part with the mic, sing all night long in "Arcade mode" or "Karaoke mode."

Karaoke Revolution is a game for Playstation 2.  If your child doesn't already have one, you can get one almost anywhere.  Visit the Electronics pages at Gifts for Learning and find one there.  Another really good Playstation 2 game is DDR (Dance Dance Revolution).  It keeps kids moving, not just sitting in front of a game console, computer, or TV!
