Kirby's Epic Yarn

Spring 2011 Video Games
Ages: All Ages
Price: $49.99
Gaming System: Nintendo Wii

Kirby's Epic Yarn is on-point for young, inexperienced videogame players. Though perhaps not an educational title, it is a craft-store full of fun in the form of a graphically unique but traditionally side-scrolling platform videogame experience.

Everything in this game relates to materials you'd find in a crafts store. Kirby is a longtime Nintendo character who must make his way jumping, jogging, swimming and leaping through the fabric of this yarn of a world.

While there's no quit here, there's plenty of quilt-especially for younger players who might find this fascinating and fun.
