At the beginning of October Nintendo launched Play.Nintendo!  With, you now have more ways than ever to connect with your favorite games and franchise characters! And that is just the beginning.

This website gives Nintendo fans of all ages access to all their favorite characters, the latest videos and cool new downloads and activities. Parents will love that Play.Nintendo has two sites! One for kids and one for parents!

The kids part of Play.Nintendo has some pretty awesome features from Tips & Tricks, DIY Crafts, downloads and full character descriptions.

When you first get onto Play.Nintendo you get a great selection of things to check out. Like right now I love that Play.Nintendo has a place for kids to start their Holiday Wish List!

Play.Nintendo is fun for both boys and girls! My daughters love to play various games, but they also love finding things that re appealing to the girls. Animal Crossing is one of those games and Play.Nintendo has tons of activities all about Animal Crossing.

When you click on the “Explore” button kids can choose all kinds of things to do.

I like that Play.Nintendo is a safe site all about Nintendo and the fun characters for kids! There is so much to do that your kids will be very entertained! Plus new content is added all the time!

I also mentioned that Play.Nintendo has a Parent’s Site too!  Parents can learn all about the games and characters. Events to take the kids too, parent tips and so much more!

Almost like a blog the tips for parents are extremely useful! One that I personally found important was learning about the dos and don’ts of “friending” people on games. This was great for me to read and then share with my kids. We have already set up a strict rule that my kids can only “friend” their real life friends and families-no strangers.

I also really like that the Parents Play.Nintendo has a complete Parent’s Guide. This allows parents to learn all about game consoles, games, characters and the important aspects of the parent controls.

As a parent I am so glad to see Nintendo committed to the safety of our kids while they enjoy playing games.



Nintendo wants you to come check out Play.Nintendo too! They want to know what you and your kids think!  We are giving away TWO amazing prizes too!


That’s right TWO Winners will each receive the Nintendo Wii U Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Set!

He’s been asking for a Wii U for a long time and it really saddens me when I tell him no we can’t afford it right now. This would be change that and would bring a huge smile on his face. The memories that we would create playing Mario Kart 8, Nintendo Land, and other incredible Wii U games would be priceless. Thank you for the opportunity.

  127. Cindy Castro says:

    I was looking at the Play Nintendo site and my 4 year old grandson scooted me out of the chair and started looking at it himself. We don’t have a Nintendo and it seems like everything I saw was for kids and the games were rated E. So much better than the Xbox. The grandkids keep wanting to play the games they see their dad playing and which I’m continually saying no. I liked the parent guide and thought the homework blog gave some helpful hints.

  128. Sarah Hayes says:

    I like the Tip & Tricks section the best!

    I’ve been a Mario fan for ages. The site was a fun experience to click and discover the game all over again with my kids. Great idea to relive the fun with more activities!

  142. James says:

    The creative visuals are great to keep the kids’ attention span going. I liked it just as much. Crazy how far Mario has come since I was a kid. Didn’t expect to be sharing the same interests with my kids : )

  143. Kim James says:

    Love it. My family has been fans of Mario for years!!!

  144. Alyson says:

    I think it is a great site with lots of potential, but my boys aren’t sold on it yet. I think there are so many great new Nintendo games that just came out so they are preoccupied with them. I’m sure they’ll get more into the site when the newness wears off.

  145. Ladee says:

    I would love to win this for my nieces and nephews. I had the opportunity to grow up with older nintendo consoles (i.e. snes, n64 and gamecube) and would love for them to have the same opportunity with the newer gen of nintendo
