Giveaway Results: Animal Planet Emergency Vets DS Game


Thank you all for entering our contest.  We chose our winner randomly and would like to congratulate Commenter #57 (Oona B.) on winning this prize pack. Please check back each Tuesday for a brand new giveaway and thank you all for entering.

Today we have a great giveaway for a new DS game for kids called, “Animal Planet Emergency Vets” for the Nintendo DS. Kids who love animals and dream of becoming veterinarians now have a new, interactive way to play pretend.  Animal Planet, known as the authority on “all things animal” has partnered with Activision to create “Emergency Vets” for Nintendo DS!

Based on the popular Animal Planet series “Emergency Vets,” kids can play as an up-and-coming veterinarian that helps the other vets at the Alameda East Hospital perform veterinary procedures on a variety of different animals, like teeth cleaning, medicating and operating with the Nintendo DS stylus.  After performing successful procedures, players will have the opportunity to interact with each animal and see their reactions.

This game is rated “E” for everyone and retails for $29.99.

To enter this giveaway, please leave a comment and tell me what your child says he/she wants to be when they grow up (and it is totally okay if it is not a veterinarian). Leave your comments by Tuesday (04/28) at 8PM EST to be entered to win. Only entries that follow the rules for entering will qualify to win.

Betty said, ” My favorite game to relax after a long day is bejeweled but with the kids it’s Uno, hands down.”  Thank you to everyone who entered and we look forward to offering contests to our readers regularly and sharing our loot with you. As a frugal gal, I know what a treat it is and that is why giveaways will always be a priority here!

If you have a Nintendo DS in your possession or are planning to give a Nintendo DS away for a holiday gift, I have the ultimate giveaway for you. Today I am giving away FOUR Nintendo DS games to complete your gaming collection. Yup, you read that right- FOUR games.

Here is some information about each of the games:

Build-A-Bear is a Nintendo DS simulation that recreates the in-store experience. Gameplay offers a unique immersive experience, which replicates the process of shopping and creating a Bear when entering a Build-A-Bear Workshop store. The game allows you to approach the Build-A-Bear Workshop concept with the same hands-on and do it yourself formula. This level of interactivity is achieved through the use of the touch screen, wireless technology, enhanced graphics and innovative control mechanism. Choose, create and customize your own personal virtual Bear and participate in various activities with your new furry friend.

Based on the classic “Rubik’s Cube” puzzle of the 80′s, this other worldly game will look like and play like no other game out there. Rubik’s World is a collection of extremely addictive, easy to pick up puzzle games that increase in difficulty as the player delves deeper in this brave new world. But, these games are not mere mini-games, but serious puzzlers and brain teasers, offering the player an immersive experience whether it be for a few minutes or a few hours.

Relax by playing puzzle games inspired by the movements of the tide, rippling water, riffs and corals, beach vegetation and sea life. Zenses Ocean is an indulgent, soothing experience with high quality visuals and ambient sounds inspired by the natural sounds of the sea. Subliminal addictive puzzles such as Hot Spot, Shell Twirl, Turtle Turn, Pearl Diver and Wave Breaker were created to give you an escape from the stress of every day life.

Explore the Amazon while playing games infused with rain drops, exotic flowers, waterfalls and giant trees. Zenses Rainforest encourages you to recharge your batteries while playing puzzle games such as Sapphire Wheel, Mirror Maze, Stack Jack and Bumble Breaker.

To enter this contest, tell me your favorite game to play. It can be a DS game, board game, online game, anything that is entertaining to you! Leave your comment by 11/11 (Tuesday) at 8PM (Eastern time) and we will enter your name into the drawing. Thanks so much for entering & good luck to each of you!
