DDR: parent style

Last night I turned on DDR (Dance Dance Revolution) while I was watching Emma. She loves music, so I wondered what she would do while I was playing DDR. At first, she just danced along over to the side. Then when she figured out that the mat had something to do with it, she climbed on the mat.

Now Emma is quite a small person, so she only really covers up one square at a time. So at that point, DDR becomes a game of not only hitting the right pad at the right time, but also keeping from losing when one square is completely unusable due to Emma covering it.

I didn’t last long at this version of DDR, but it was certainly fun anyway.

  1. Our boys really love watching us play DDR. They’ve even tried a couple of times at a really low difficulty setting and had moderate success.

    They haven’t tried climbing on the pads while we’re using them, but if only one of us is playing they like to use the spare. =)

  2. we have the VeggieTales version. Abigail (age 4) can do pretty well on the easy level. The others are still to young, but they all love to try.
