Activision's Squinkies for Nintendo DS

My daughter loves her Squinkies and she has quite a collection built up of the squishy, squashy fun Squinkies! She has the little play sets to store her collection in. And when she first caught wind of the new Squinkies for DS game, she had her eye on not only the awesome game but those ultra rare Squinkies that come with the game. To her it was a double score. Not only would it be a new game for her to play with on her DS but she would also be getting some new Squinkies to add to her collection. When we were given the game to review, the first thing she had to do was mark off the Squinkies that came with the game off of her list! Then it was game time! She loves this game and all of her little friends seem to be just as excited to try it out as well. She loves that when you are playing, you earn coins then with those coins you put them in the gumball machine looking thing, that is just like one of the play sets she has, and she earns more Squinkies to play with in the game. She also likes how there are multiple things to do in the game so she wont get bored with it, lol!!
