     This game is rated E Everyone 10+.  Although Jayden is 3 he loves wii dance games.  What made me want to get Jayden a wii was seeing him have so much fun playing a dance game at a friends house.   The Alvin and the Chipmunks Chipwrecked is a great game that he is able to move along to.  I love that you answer a few questions and the game pairs you uip with your Chipmunk or Chipette.  The free play is the easiest to jump in and play.  We love jumping around and dancing together as a family.  This game is a great Christmas gift or stocking stuffer this year.  And with the movie coming out tomorrow this wii game and get you in the spirit and mood for the theater. 

Buy it:  Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked $29.99
