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!

  40. my daughter is a gamer and I like that fact that they have a parents site as well, keeping parents in the know… plus the layout is very user friendly and there is a lot for the kids to do.

  41. This looks like a website my kids would love and I wouldn’t have to worry about, since it was designed with thoughts about safety in mind.

  42. I think it is a really cool! I like that I don’t have to worry about the content my son is exposed to when visiting .

  43. I don’t know, I mean, I guess it is ok but honestly after checking out the site I think it might have more uses on the parent side.

  44. I think it is great that they are expanding their line to include smaller children. The kids can learn so much from playing these games.

  45. I am so excited for this! I love the nintendo site and the games! My sons 5 and 7 would love this and we all love Mario Bros.

  46. 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.

  47. I can finally get my son a Wiiu, so he can experience the same fun I use to have when I use to play Nintendo games when I was younger.

  48. I love the tips and tricks section. I’ll bookmark this site for my kids. They are gonna love exploring all the modules and finding out more about their favorite characters.

  49. My kids love the bright colors and easy navigation. I think it’s eye pleasing for any age to enjoy exploring all the fun content.

  50. My daughter was ecstatic to see Mario online. She can’t get enough of that game. It’s fun to see the fun continue for her on the website. Great site suggestion.

  51. The quizzes are fun. My kids love this interactive website. I had to give up my mouse pretty quickly. And make sure they took turns exploring the site together. Fun for adults and kids. Thanks!

  52. 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!

  53. 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 : )

  54. 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.

  55. 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

  56. I like the website there are some fun things there and I really appreciate how Nintendo strives to make things safe for kids.

  57. I love that there is a huge amount of content and they keep adding more. My family couldn’t get bored.

  58. Nobody would ever be bored of the new Play Nintendo website. It comes packed with a bunch of content of Nintendo for everyone!

  59. I think the new site is a good tool for parents to explore what their kids are playing on Nintendo.

  60. I think it’s great and easy to use, and good for people just getting introduced to Nintendo, or for those that have been a Nintendo fan for a long time.

  61. Thanks so much for the chance to win this! I’m trying to get one for my son this season and I just cannot afford it. I hope I win. If not thanks anyways. Take care!!

  62. I love the site. I really hope I can win this system for my grandkids, they would love to find this under the Christmas tree.

  63. I think that the site is great. I love that it has so many great activities for kids and a parents section as well.


  64. I love the over all appearance especially color wise. I also really liked how easy it is to navigate.

  65. I think this looks like a lot of fun and I would love to win this for our 4 kids. Thanks for the chance 🙂

  66. I like the site a lot. It is easy to navigate and visually appealing. I think I could accidentally spend too much time on there ha ha…

  67. I love this site and love all the activities and that there is a place for parents. My kids would love this.
