The beautiful ballet the Nutcracker is one of the most recognized ballets for the Christmas season. With the music of Tchaikovsky and the Sugar Plum Fairies, it is sure to be part of the wonderment of Christmas. It is one of my personal favorite ballets.
That is why I was excited when I got the chance to review the Nutcracker Music Game for children. This award winning game is excellent for teaching children listening skills.
The premise is as children go through the different screens they achieve keys in order to save the Nutcracker. Children learn to use their memory and listening skills in order to achieve these keys. The game itself has 9 different games of achievement.
The game is listed for 4-10 year old children but as we went through just the first few screens it was obvious that it would be better suited for the older child. Younger children would enjoy the music and the awesome animation but would need help navigating through the game.
The only thing I had wished about this game was more of the music of Tchaikovsky could have been listened too. After awhile I wanted more and really think kids would too.
However, I did think it was really cool that one of the places you could go was to learn about the composer and see his picture. In fact, there is a whole encyclopedia just waiting to be explored which includes things about the different instruments, the history of the ballet, trivia and so much more. The animation in this game really is remarkable!
Overall, I would recommend the Nutcracker Music Game for any child who loves music. I could also see this being used by Music teachers as a unit for Christmas. Children will grow their musical vocabulary with this one.
