This giveaway is now closed. Thank you so much for stopping by and entering (all 700+ of you!). The winner is Pamk (#543). Congratulations!
I still remember the day my parents bought me my first Nintendo Entertainment System. I was so excited I could hardly contain myself. Technology has come a long way from this:
Gaming is all the rage, particularly now that summer is here! And with the launch of the Wii (which I’ll probably never get closer to than I did at BlogHer) there is even more reason to get excited about gaming. Regardless of the gaming system you currently possess, check out GameStop, the world’s largest video game retailer. I stopped in two different stores (one by our house and one on the way up to visit the grandparents) and I have to say that I have never seen such a diverse and abundant selection of games in one location. The staff were informative and helpful and moms and dads will appreciate their commitment to safety by adhering to the ESRB’s standards. I was pretty close to buying Wii Fit….except that would lead to another purchase that I don’t think hubby is quite ready to endeavor.
Kids are getting smarter and smarter these days and it’s very likely that they’ll either get tired of their current collection or manage to finish the game and then get bored. GameStop’s trade-in program allows you to bring in your child’s old games and get credit towards new titles or systems. I was thinking about bringing in my old Super Mario Bros. but I didn’t want to get laughed right out of the store it may be a classic and actually worth something! When I walked into the store there was an entire section of gently used games. We love purchasing DVDs, CDs, etc. used because they’re affordable and usually in excellent condition. If you like saving money and keeping your kids entertained, this may be the perfect option for you.
By the way, GameStop’s selection is not limited to Nintendo systems. You’ll find games for Playstation, XBox360, and even your computer! Since I’m feeling so generous (wink, wink) I’m going to give one lucky reader a $30 gift card to use to your heart’s content, courtesy of Mom Central and GameStop. Head on over to GameStop and have a look around. Come back here and tell me which game you’ll purchase if you win (of course you can change your mind!). And if you tell me you’re going to buy Wii Fit, you must understand that may entail me becoming a regular frequenter of your pad!
