Summary: I wanted safe music for my kids to dance with their xbox. The regular just dance ones were inappropriate for my 8-10 year olds. This one is for little, little kids though, and does not interest my 8-10 yr olds at all. Well my 2 yr old will love it.. but it's not what I was looking for.
Summary: My 6 year old son loves Dance Central for the Kinect but the songs are not always kid appropriate. I thought this might be a good alternative for him but he has played it once or twice since receiving it. On the plus side it has child safe music and dance moves. The game also gives different difficulty levels for different age children. The dance move sensor does not seem as good as Dance Central and seems to frustrate my son.
Summary: We already owned Dance Disney and expected Just Dance Kids 2 to be just as good, but it wasn't. For example, when we put it on shuffle, it shuffles in three different languages. It had other glitches too.
Summary: My children are 2, 4 and 11 years old. The Kinect will not pick up the 2 or 4 yr old. I've calibrated it with them and on my knees. The kinect senses them but does not recognize them as a player and they must constanstly wave to re-activate their side of the game. Rarely can they wave enough for the game to pick them up. The songs for younger children are fun and the dance moves are easy for them to follow.
Its OK. But Dance Central for adults is just better - even for kids.

Summary: We have Dance Central 2 (DC2), and my 2 and 4 year old love that game. So we thought it might be cool to check out this version too. Unfortunately, this game falls short in a few but important areas: 1. You can't use the controller to drive the menu - you have to use the Kinect. My kids are good dancers, but keeping them still enough to use the kinect controller to select menus doesn't work.
