All those Guitar Hero and Wii families out there will love this giveaway. We have 3 copies of the new Wii game, PopStar Guitar.
Think Guitar Hero but for a younger audience – rather than using a guitar, there’s a cover that pops over the Wii remote for the kids to “play” the songs. Songs featured include ones by the Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, Blink 182, 3 Doors Down, Fall Out Boy, Maroon 5, Paramore, Simple Plan, Rihanna, All-American Rejects and more.
Check out the bundle on Toys R Us. Three lucky Mommies with Style readers will receive a copy of this game.
The game releases November 18th and will retail for $59.99.
To enter, leave a comment in this post. Just for fun – share with us: what was the first game or game system you played as a kid? (If you didn’t play games growing up, you can say that too, just leave a comment so you’re entered!)
This contest will run until next Sunday, November 16th. Three winners will be selected and notified after that time.

    Damn I feel old…Atari’s Pong! Or Speak and Spell! Ha ha!

  2. I remember ours! We had a Commodore 64 and there was a game that had letters falling down from the top of the screen and you had to find them on the keyboard before they reached the bottom – and then at the end of each level there would be a hot air balloon with a short word you’d have to type in time (before it rose or fell, I can’t remember). I can’t remember the name of the game, though!
    And I think that might’ve been the same computer that had a game with a little unicyclist catching balloons on his head… but I’m not sure. Ahh… good times. 🙂

  3. Atari or Nintendo. Can’t remember which one but for sure it was Pacwoman!!

  4. Atari when I was 5. I’m not sure my first game, I started playing young 🙂

  5. I can remember how excited my sisters and I were to play Asteroids on our Atari. My parents had a separate black & white TV set up for us to play on. It was the best!
