Because we have a Wii, and 5 kids, I am always looking for games that the majority of my kids can play together. Of course, it needs to be uncomplicated enough that my husband and I can join in now and then as well.
Cars Toon: Mater’s Tall Tales totally fits the bill on every level! My kids are already big fans of Mater and Cars. When a short clip comes on the Disney Channel of Mater’s Tall Tales, they’ll stop whatever they’re doing and focus only on the tv. I’ve quickly learned that no amount of interrupting will pull them away from the tv during these short clips. Luckily, they are short, so things go back to normal fairly quickly.
The Cars Toon: Mater’s Tall Tales game is so much fun for everyone. And I’m not just saying that! There’s just so much you can do. Up to 4 people can play at once, there are 30 games to choose from. My boys are 6 and 7, and they could play for hours on end if I let them. Even my teenager, Ashley, loves to play along. And Lucy and Parker enjoy watching them play.
The boys get so excited and are so proud of themselves when they win a new trophy or other prizes. And they are constantly changing up their cars to fit their personalities.
Here’s the info about the game, directly from the game’s website:
Cars Toon: Mater’s Tall Tales is part of the Mania! line of games, featuring fast-paced, multiplayer, family fun. This captivating game is as fun to watch as it is to play and will engage up to four players of all ages.
The video game will feature a large collection of pick-up-and-play games inspired by Disney/Pixar’s popular Mater’s Tall Tales animated short series. The game will bring Mater together with Lightning McQueen and the ‘Cars’ gang for a new set of adventures, capturing the endearing sense of humor of everyone’s favorite tow truck. Players will join Mater and his pals as they relive the wild stories he conjures up about hilariously unpredictable events that may or may not have taken place.
Cars Toon: Mater’s Tall Tales for Wii will allow family and friends to experience Mater’s Tall Tales with a Mania! twist. The Mania! franchise, hosted by beloved characters, provides accessible and frenzied pick-up-and-play experiences to be enjoyed by everyone in the living room.
With up to four players at once, Mania! video games reward competitiveness and cooperative play among players and features immersive storytelling experiences that are appropriate for all ages.
I love how well the kids play together with the Cars Toon: Mater’s Tall Tales game, and I love how excited the kids are about achieving their goals. I would definitely recommend this to any family. At $49.99, it’s not too expensive, and it’s definitely worth every penny. It would make a great Christmas gift that the entire family can enjoy!
