One of the gifts under the tree for my twins this year was a new game for Nintendo DS: Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus Friends: Asian Elephants. They’ve really been having a lot of fun with this game! It’s similar to those games where kids take care of pets or babies, but this time they get to take care of a circus elephant!
At the start of the game, players can pick one of five colors for their elephant and give him a name. Throughout the game, they need to make sure that their pachyderm friend eats well, gets enough exercise, and stays clean and healthy. They can dress up their elephant in various costumes and engage him in more than 15 fun activities, such as plate spinning and painting. And they can earn Pachyderm Points to purchase food, toys and costumes. It’s all with the goal of becoming a master elephant trainer!
Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus Friends: Asian Elephants for Nintendo DS is rated E for Everyone. There’s also a Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey game available for Wii. Go to www.ringlingbrosgame.com to check out both of these terrific, family-friendly games!
