Olivia Holt at Nintendo NYC

Some days this is how it goes, I rat on my mom.  I spent the morning at the Nintendo store, playing Disney Magic World 2 with a few friends and Olivia Holt from Kickin’it!

 

A day aboard the Intrepid Museum

Had so much fun today spending the day with mom in the city.  While Mom learned ways to save money for my college fund I was able to learn about The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, a military and maritime history museum with a collection of museum ships in New York City.

I learned doing simple things like opening locks with “Space Hands” are not so easy after all.

Wow, this bed is super thin! My sister could never survive in space her mattress alone is 18 inches. But I think its cool to sort of have bunk beds.

Have you ever visited the Intrepid Museum? What was your favorite part?

Nintendo Hosts Disney Art Academy Preview Event with Sabrina Carpenter

Disney Channel actress Sabrina Carpenter, or as I know her Maya Hart, stopped by the Nintendo NY store for a Disney Art Academy preview event.  Spending the morning with playing and getting lesson in Disney Art Academy from Sabrina Carpenter was AWESOME!!

Take a look, at my video below I will admit I was a little shy, how can I not be?!

Have you ever been shy meeting a celebrity?  Tell me about it below in the comments.

Update:  I am totally obsessed with this game, mom says when I am so quiet when playing it, she forgets I am even there. LOL

Nintendo NY is officially open! #PlayNintendo

We arrived at the Nintendo NY store at 9 am, and already the line was down and around the block! People must have spent the night waiting for Nintendo World to reopen at noon.

I am so grateful I am a Nintendo Kid Reviewer because I was able to go in early, and attend the ribbon cutting ceremony with Charles Martinet the voice of Mario, Luigi, Wario, and Waluigi.

I had my birthday party at the Nintendo Store last year, and I loved the store then, but now its even cooler!

The new look includes a 15 foot screen which I really enjoyed playing Twilight Princess on, new demo stations for both the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.

“Nintendo is constantly evolving its experiences for fans,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “The new Nintendo NY store is a must-see location for anyone that has a memory of Nintendo, or who wants to see what Nintendo has in store for the future.”

I agree, and plan to spend much more time in the Nintendo NY store, and hope you will join me!

Yoshi’s Wooly World Playdate with FREE Printables!

It feels like we have planned and replanned my Yoshi Wooly World playdate with my friends like 4 times already.  My cousins were sick then my mom was sick, then my cousins again! What gives?! Finally I took control and said thats it, we are having my party.

So we did, mom drove me, my sis and cousin up to my friends house so the three of us, him and his brothers could have a Yoshi’s Wooly World Playdate, and untangle some fun! Take a look, Mom added in some party printables for you to use for a Yoshi Wooly World themed party.

Stay tuned for my full video coming next week on Yoshi’s Wooly World.

For us it isn’t a party unless Domino’s pizza is involved. Delivered in 30 minutes or less, and always delicious.  It’s always good to know when our pizza and dessert will arrive thanks to the Dominos tracker!

Mom wrapped and taped a streamer around the fork, knife, and spoon of each place setting, it looked cool!

Splatoon on YouTube

Hey guys! JD here…. This is how my videos normally start out….

Well that is until my mom edits them LOL.  We spent a little over a week trying to understand the Elgato Capture HD60. When I say we I mean the parentals.

One week later, several trips to Best Buy, (for gear I am sure they did not need), I have this video of me playing Splatoon.  Obviously we need improvement but for a first timer it will have to do!

Have you ever played Splatoon?

Comic Con with my Dad

My dad works ALOT!  So spending time with him is sometimes hard.  You can’t imagine how excited, and grateful I was when Mom scored Dad and I two tickets to Comic Con!

Comic Con for us started with a breakfast at the Nintendo booth, and a little bit of playtime with YoKai Watch, due out 11/6/15.

Can’t wait to get your hands on it? I know the feeling, so I will let you in on a little secret you can actually pre-order the downloadable version HERE, or you can pre-order the retail version or the Bundle, (YO-KAI WATCH along with the Nintendo 2DS system) from Best Buy.

Review to come soon!

I then walked around with my dad and checked out some of the limited edition figures, toys and met some of the coolest characters.  Of course we shopped too!  Dad and I got the coolest Five Nights at Freddys t-shirts.

Super Mario Maker

#PlayNintendo Kid Reviewer JDPs World

Super Mario Maker is availble for the Wii U and it is the coolest game ever!

For starters Nintendo rocks!  They have now given us the chance to play Super Mario on our own board. We can create our own Mario levels by using our Wii U game pad, by simply dragging and dropping objects into the course of our choice. Yep thats right we can add, as many enemies, power ups, pipes as we want too.  I like the cool hand that comes across the screen while we are creating the levels, showing its really me creating each level.

Super Mario Maker JDP's World

 I love Super Mario Maker because…

  • I have the ability to use four different Super Mario game themes, six different level themes, to create, play and save each board.
  • I can make giant Gumbas stacked on top of each other and combine enemies for uncommon outcomes like having a pirhana plant shoot cannons etc
  • You can use amibos to change into different costumes by tapping the amibo on your Wii U gamepad or by completing the 100 Mario Challenge
  • Your copy of Super Mario Maker comes with a Mario amibo, and a special booklet filled with fun ideas to design courses, like a how to get started booklet.

Back to School is here!

Kicking and screaming? Me Nope!  It’s third grade and I got this!

I am so ready for the third grade, ready to make new friends, meet a new teacher and hopefully become more organized (mom is over my shoulder, I had to write that part).

Weather here is a little crazy, not too hot, but not cold?

Shorts and a tee with a button up will work perfect. I layered up so if I get hot I can take one layer off and carefully place it in my backpack (mom still watching).

Disclaimer: My outfit of the day was provided by Kids Headquarters, tee is Quik Silver, Button Up Nautica.
