Microsoft’s Kinect has been awarded The National Parenting Center’s 2011 Seal of Approval recommending it for age 6 and up.
The National Parenting Center was founded in July of 1989 with the intention of providing the most comprehensive and responsible parenting advice to parents everywhere.
Unless you live in a cave it is pretty hard to avoid the crush of media coverage for Microsoft’s newest baby, the Kinect for Xbox. Hype can be a blessing or a curse, living up to expectations is a road filled with potholes. So, does Kinect connect? You betcha! We have never seen anything like it and neither have you. We all marveled when the revolutionary Wii was introduced, and rightfully so. Be prepared to be marveled again. Like the Wii, activity and movement are the key to the experience, but this time there are no controls apart from your body. What does this mean for you and your children? No more couch potato-ing, you’ve got to get up and move, immerse yourself in game play like never before and we assure you, you will. There are only a few titles on the market at the time of this writing, but there will be many, many more in the months to come.
The advice provided is furnished by some of the world’s most respected authorities in the field of child rearing and development.
