My kids love animals (in theory). I grew up around a lot of animals in Virginia, so sometimes I feel badly that they aren’t growing up around them as city kids. (Granted, I don’t feel bad enough to go out and get them a dog like they want – I am not picking up poop on the streets of Manhattan. Sorry!) To compensate somewhat, I have a couple of virtual pet games that I allow Michael to play on the subway during his preschool commute.
If your kids love animals too, Animal Planet has partnered with Activision to create “Emergency Vets” for the Nintendo DS. Based on the popular Animal Planet series “Emergency Vets,” kids can interactively pretend to play as up-and-coming veterinarians in this new virtual pet game. They will help the other vets perform veterinary procedures (i.e. teeth cleaning, medicating and operating) on a variety of animals (30 different species!). After the procedures, players will be able to interact with each animal and see their reactions. This game is rated “E” for everyone and retails for $29.99.
