On Reliving My Childhood (Plus Smurfs Dance Party Review)

Smurf ice sculpture at Clever Girls rock star BlogHer party

When I was little, the Smurfs were huge. Huge. And, I loved them. I loved Smurfs so much that I wrote poems about them nonstop.

True story.

My dad and I used to create limericks about Smurfs at night before I went to bed. Oh, how I wish we still had some of those! (I’m still convinced they’re somewhere at my mom’s house—it’s not like she throws anything away.)

I am thrilled to see the Smurfs back again to share with our girls. We’re big on reliving our childhood favorites with the girls—they know every song by Jem & the Holograms, crack up at the Muppet Show and now we have a house of full of Smurf figurines.

I was so excited about the movie that I actually took the girls to see it in the theater! (Of course, $5 Tuesday and a free popcorn coupon were a deciding factor there.)

So, imagine how excited I was when Ubisoft sent me the new Smurfs Dance Party for the Wii. I couldn’t wait to bust it out, but one of the girls was away at Camp Grandma for the week. I am not a patient person, but I forced myself to hold off until we could all play together. And, it was totally worth the wait!

Smurfs Dance Party with Lorelai & Brenia

You get to dance with the Smurfs to pop songs such as Like Whoa and One of the Boys, plus smurftastic remixes like Who Let the Smurfs Out. I totally rocked out the Smurfs theme song—Mommy wins!

Yeah, I might be a little competitive. So is our 5-year-old, which is a problem since the games are often a bit to challenging for her.

Enter Clumsy Smurf—he awards bonus points for the most misses so Lorelai’s score gets a boost just for being young. She loves to watch her total go up after the game ends, even when she still finishes last. It’s a nice change from all the tears at the end of most other games. I definitely like the giggles best!

And, it makes me smile to share the Smurfs with my girls in such a fun way. What are your favorite childhood memories to share with the next generation?
