Super Smash Bros. Brawl Character Guide: Link

Link is a very straightforward and balanced character. He’s got a versatile array of moves, great all-around stats, and is generally good in many situations. Most of his specials are ranged attacks, while his melee attacks have good power and a range. His only real weakness is that he’s not that fast, both in terms of movement and attack speed, but he’s not that slow either. 

Overall, Link is a great character for beginners, but he’s still a great choice for pros. Of course, most really high-level players will prefer Toon Link, but Link is still a great character. Which is why you can choose him as you play the game. Although, there are tons of other game characters that you can find in the game such as Super Mario, Luigi, etc. and if you want to learn about them as well, then you can follow the link Poker Online Indonesia here. 

Standard Attacks

Link’s standard combo is good. All three attacks have a good range, but the final stab has more recovery time, so you might want to stick to just the first or first and second attacks for some quick damage racking. On the other hand, the final stab is the most powerful and has decent knockback for a standard neutral attack, so use it when you need to. Link’s running attack is one of his quickest attacks coming out, but the recovery time can be pretty bad. Use it to surprise your opponent when he has high damage, but watch out or you’ll get punished.

Link’s tilts are all pretty good too. The down-tilt has decent speed and range and is a great move for popping your opponent upward if he’s right in front of you. The up attack is a great juggling move with a good arc of effect, range, and power. It will be your primary defense from air attacks as well. The forward tilt is kind of slow, but it’s got a good range and power is a good killing move.

Link’s smash attacks are all multiple hit attacks with great power, range, and damage. The up smash is a triple hit upward combo. Unlike in Melee, all three hits will usually hit and this move is a good killing attack, but for most other purposes you’ll want to stick with the uptilt (which is also a decent killing move). The down smash is a double ground sweep, one hit on each side. It comes out quick and with good power, so use it whenever you get the chance. Finally, Link’s forward smash is a double slash with a huge range, but you’ll have to press the button a second time to get the second hit. The good part about his is you have a fairly large window of opportunity to initiate the second slash, so you can make it come out immediately or with a delay, making the move very versatile and unpredictable. The second swipe is much more powerful and is the preferred killing swipe. You’ll only be able to hit both slashes when the opponent is at low damage, which is the best time to attempt it since hitting both hits will rack up massive damage.

Special Attacks

Link’s specials allow him to really mix up his game. His up special should really only be used for recovery. It’s Link’s one move that is really worse than it was in Melee in every single way. It is worse as an attack and worse as a recovery move since it is less controllable in the air that it was before. On the ground, it can no longer be used as a diagonal spike attack, and it’s too punishable to be a viable attack, so don’t try.

The rest of Link’s specials are his ranged weapons. The boomerang is decent as an attack, but from farther away it does less or no damage. Of course, you can angle it up or down and it can bounce off the ground, making it decent for mind games. Just be aware that it pulls enemies towards you on the return trip, which, in practice, usually works to your disadvantage. Link’s arrows are much better than they were in Melee, though they do much less damage. Still, they are now actually useful even if you don’t charge them up very much or at all. When charged, they get great range, speed, and damage. Finally, the bombs are just a great move to disrupt whatever is going on and are pretty strong, so throw them all over the place every time you get a chance.

Throws

Link’s grab is a long-range but also a long recovery time, meaning you will probably get punished for missing. Therefore, Link should only grab when he absolutely knows he will connect. Once you have grabbed someone, Link’s throws aren’t anything special. They are easily the worse moves that Link has. The forward and backward throws are both pretty weak and you probably shouldn’t ever use them. The downthrow can be useful to lead to other attacks. The up throw is pretty strong, so you can try to use it to lead into an up air, juggling, or a bomb thrown upwards.

Aerial Attacks

Link’s air attacks are all good, and he’s got an extra one compared to most characters. His neutral air is a quick forward kick that’s not very strong, but useful for its speed. The back air is a double kick which is also a decent quick attack, though it’s stronger than the neutral air. The forward air is a double slash with a decent time in between the hits. Unlike melee, the second slash is now much more powerful (in both damage and knockback), so try to always hit with both. This may be tricky, but if you master the time you can short hop the attack in such a way that you’ll hit directly with the second, stronger attack.

Link’s up and down aerials are both very powerful and have very high priority. The up attack is great for attacking from underneath and will break through most attacks. It also lasts for a decent amount of time, making it easy to hit with. The down aerial is a drop-down attack (though not an auto drop), which you can fast fall for additional speed, damage, and knockback. The fast drop version is an excellent killing move; it does high damage and very high knockback and will break through almost anything, including hammers, though this is tricky. Finally, Link can use his grab in the air as an attack. It is very quick and has amazing recovery time, and if you short jump it you can hit twice for a respectable 10% damage. This is a great damage racking and disruption attack, and you can use it as a recovery move (it latches onto the edge).

Final Smash

Link’s final smash is a good move, but you have to put some effort into connecting with it. The attack goes directly horizontally, and it’s easy to dodge but jumping or dropping. If you hit, you’ll rack up massive damage and possibly kill someone, and you can hit nearby opponents too. Also, Link well fly horizontally to reach his target and gain a huge distance, so if you have a great aim you can use this move to recover as well as attack.

Review: Hershey Kisses Limited Edition Cherry Cordial Creme

When I think of cherry cordials, I think of cheap Christmas chocolates. Cheap, yet oh so freaking delightful at the same time. The cherry flavored cream, syrup, and the delicious cherry in the middle.

When I came across Hershey Kisses Limited Edition Cherry Cordial Creme a few months ago, I was thrilled! I imagined a creamy cherry syrup center. These kisses though didn’t have any syrup center. In fact they only came with the cherry flavored white cream, lacking of course the cherry, and cherry flavored drip on your chin syrup.

Packaging:

Hershey Kisses Limited Edition Cherry Cordial Creme comes in a bag that easily make them distinguishable as new cherry cordial flavored kisses. The bag itself features a cartoon like drawing of 2 cherries on their stems. The bag has a clear window located on the package allowing you too look inside at the new limited edition’s foil wrap.

Hershey Kisses Limited Edition Cherry Cordial Creme comes in dark cherry colored foil, with swirls of dark, dark brown.

Texture:

Hershey Kisses Limited Edition Cherry Cordial Creme have a weird texture, where they are not hard like originals, yet not overly soft like some of the newest limited edition kisses like Pumpkin Spice.

Hershey Kisses Limited Edition Cherry Cordial Creme is somewhere in the middle.

Appearance:

When you unwrap a Hershey Kisses Limited Edition Cherry Cordial Creme, you will see that it looks just like an original kiss. However if you bite it in half, you will come to the softer creamier cherry flavored creme center.

Taste:

The Hershey Kisses Limited Edition Cherry Cordial Creme do indeed taste 100% like chocolate cherry cordials, only it lacks that extra pizazz that the original treats have. The cherry, and the cherry syrup.

I think that these Hershey Kisses Limited Edition Cherry Cordial Cremes would have been perfect had they added just a small dot of cherry syrup. I know they couldn’t fit a whole cherry in there, but man if they added some syrup these cordial creme flavored kisses would have been flawless.

Due to the fact that there is more cherry creme center than there is chocolate, you mainly will be tasting cherry flavoring, and not much of anything else.

Overall:

I like them. They do resemble cherry cordials, one of my favorite Christmas time treat, but at the same time they lack the flavor-rama, and that texture that the actual cordials have.

I do however find them to be delicious micro versions, which is sure to tickle your fancy if you love cherry cordials.

Where To Find:

I have come across Hershey Kisses Limited Edition Cherry Cordial Creme, for quite some time now. I first spotted them last year around Christmas time, and ever since then I have run into them in numerous stores such as Sam’s Club, Walmart, and Target.

Eating this chocolate will be even more fun if you also play Pkv games online. There is nothing more than fun and exciting than playing online games and at the same time eating your favorite chocolate. So what are you waiting for? Go now and buy Hershey kisses limited edition cherry cordial crème.

Free Resources For Making Your Toddler Computer Savvy

Here are some strategies to introduce your toddler/preschooler to Computers and some free sites to start learning both computer skills and general learning. The age group that I’m considering is ages 2 to 3. You could use the same strategy but different sites if you are introducing the child at a higher age.

This is an article for those who have understood the pro and cons of putting a child at so early an age onto the computer and have decided that they want to introduce the kid to the resources available on computers and internet.

While today’s kids are quite sharp in their observations and the touch screen does the rest for them where they just have to press their tiny fingers on the screen and a new site opens up, which will get them hooked and they won’t be addicted to Pkv Games.

What should be your strategy for getting the little one cozy with the computers? Here is a step by step guide.

Remember that children love repetition, so for the same step do not introduce new games each time, let them play with old games. They love familiar characters so try and find sites which have characters whose TV serials, DVD, books they see or read. Also important is the interest of the child: drawing, cars, trucks, princesses etc. Finally, most important is what all you want to introduce via the computer resources to your child. There is so much available on the net that you need to surf, find sites, play with them yourself, once you decide what you want to teach your child through the identified program then put it in your internet favorites based on categories like songs, puzzles, ABC and counting, words etc. Now that you have your resources in place this is what you need to do.

Step1:

Start with you doing all the navigating and talking and letting the child observe.

There is a wonderful site called Uptoten which is partially free and has all topic wise (Colors, Wind, family, Strawberry ,car, tennis, birthday) components containing a simple 1 minute stories, 2 games, off-line activities and a song. It has some very cute characters called Boowa and Kwala and the accent is the cute Singaporean accent. Site: http://www.uptoten.com/kids/boowakwala-adventures-homeadventures.html

The child will love the stories and the songs and will love to help you verbally through games like making sandwich in the ‘We are going on a picnic’ component. The child’s vocabulary increases phenomenally as you go through all the components.

Step 2:

Next do the navigating and talking and using technical words like ‘Cancel’, Back, Next etc as you navigate the screens.

Step 3:

Then give the child games where only ‘Spacebar’ has to be pressed.

You could try the following site. The BBC site for children with all the favorite TV characters is http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/characters/. You can use this site to teach shapes, colors, numbers, and vocabulary. It is just full of fun stuff. Here in the Teletubbies site, fun and games you have the Sucky Slurpy game which is a spacebar based game. http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/teletubbies/funandgames/ . Also here in the ‘Clifford’ site you have the tug of war game which is a ‘spacebar’ game. I used to tap the spacebar and my 2 yr old son just kept it pressed down and won all the time. He however learnt the names of all the characters he won against! http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/clifford/fun/tugofwar.shtml

Step 4:

Next give a game which requires that any key on the keyboard be pressed.

Try this Fisher Price site for infant games. Try the game Laugh and Learn Peek-a-boo : http://www.fisher-price.com/fp.aspx?st=2602 e;=gamesByAge mcat;=game_infant site;=us or Tap and color on this same site.

Step 5:

Then give games where up, down, left, arrows are used

The Cbeebies Balamory site has a good bus driving game with which the child can first instruct you left//right/up/down and then take over and do so themselves with the keyboard. Site: http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/balamory/games/embedded_games/balamory_bus.shtml

Step 6:

Next give them games where just clicking with the mouse anywhere on the screen gives them results

In the cbeebies Teletubby site try the counting game: http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/teletubbies/funandgames/letscount/index.shtml

Step 7:

Then give a game where click on specific items gives results

Try the Cebeebies Teletubbies ‘find the favorite thing’ game http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/teletubbies/funandgames/favourite/ . Also try this matching game in Uptoten game site: who is hiding behind the bush http://www.uptoten.com/kids/kidsgames-mixedbag-animalhides.html . The home

home site:

http://www.uptoten.com/kids/kidsgames-home.html

Step 8:

Then move on to programs and games where you need to drag and drop to get results

Try this Bob the builder game of building a park. The kid learns what a park contains and amazingly how to make all the park equipment of swings and slides, names of various construction gadgets and colors. First you do it for a few days, then ask the child to guide you verbally and finally help the child do it themselves.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/bobthebuilder/fun/sunflower.shtml

Also this Old Macdonald game where you have to layout the farm which is then followed by the song is good

http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/somethingspecial/songs/oldmac.shtml

Step 9:

Then move to mouse click programs which require pointing to a very fine point and clicking without shaking the mouse.

On this PBS site, once again full of TV characters, in the Teletubbies section, select the game of animal matching (icon: the tiger):

http://pbskids.org/teletubbies/teletubbyland.html. You could also try painting the Thomas and Friends. The fine lines on the trains and bus or the steering wheel of the bus require good mouse skills. http://www.thomasandfriends.com/uk/activities.asp . Also at this stage Microsoft paint is a good option for the child to select a brush type, its size and color and paint.

Step 10:

Finally navigating from Internet Icon, to Favorites, selecting a program

Try and keep the child’s favorite sites in the top most folder of the internet favorites and soon the child will know which one to select. They are just not afraid of trail and error.

When on screens like ‘Uptoten’, teletubbyland etc when the kids wants to go to another option show them how to use the ‘back’, the ‘next’, the menu drop downs (which have photos) etc. They learn so fast.

For my son these 10 steps were a 9 month process. Now 2 yrs 9 month old, he knows how to deal with random error screen errors by Pressing the Cancel and Stop buttons. finds the programs he wants to play with, stop and move on to another.

My son’s favorite sites are mentioned in this article. The home pages of these sites will give you TV characters which will interest girls and you could find similar games and activities there.

Follow these activities up with the TV program or read the book to re-enforce some vocabulary and also take printouts and do some off-line activities.

Welcome to the world of computers little ones !!

The Best Places To Gamble In Vegas On a Shoestring Budget

Who doesn’t want to save a few extra bucks and still enjoy all the excitement of big-money gambling when you go to Las Vegas? I’d say we all do!

Las Vegas has become a great place for the entire family and there are many places that you can go to now even if you’re visiting on a shoestring budget.

See below for the top five hidden spots that I’ve found offer great rewards with minimal risk:

Slot Tournaments

Slot Tournaments are a great way to have fun on a very low budget. Offered at various casinos around Las Vegas, a room is set aside for the tournament that consists of a single machine type for each player. The machines are supposed to generate more winning jackpot combinations than the average casino machine which adds to the excitement of each tournament.

Machines either start with a specified amount of free play cash or a limited amount of playing time. Instead of playing for money, players are trying to win points and your risk is limited to the cost of the entry fee, if any. Slot tournaments also often have a prize structure of $25,000, $15,000 and $5,000 for the top three winners. Sometimes even if you’re further down on the list, you can still walk away with an extra $100.00 (i.e. if there are 100 entrants, you have one in 100 chance at one of the top three prizes — much better than regular slot play.) Poker tables are available for the gamblers for increasing their bank account. Online poker will provide huge amount of rewards in comparison to the land poker tables.

Below are some of the more popular and affordable slot tournaments.

(1) Monte Carlo Resort and Casino: This casino offers a slot tournament that is free for player club members. Its top prize is $500.00. Tournaments are held at various times throughout the year. To get the schedule, one may call 1-800-822-8276.

(2) Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino has a daily No Risk Slot Tournament that costs $25 to enter but comes with a $10 restaurant gift certificate, a gift and $10 worth of play on a slot or video poker machine.

(3) Main Street Station offers daily slot tournaments from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. The entry fee is $15.00 unless you have a Players Gold card; which offers a $5.00 savings. The first place prize is 50% of the collected entry fees.

(4) Plaza Hotel and Casino offers free daily slot tournaments from 10:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. $500 in prizes is offered every day.

(5) Riviera offers a tournament every Wednesday through Sunday from 12:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. The entry fee is $10.00. The prizes vary, but there is a guaranteed $250.00 minimum payout.

Blackjack Tables, starting at a low $1.00 bet!

Blackjack is the most widely played casino game in the world. The hand with the highest total wins as long as it isn’t bust – more than 21. The sum is determined by the face value of the cards: cards 2-10 are worth the face value and face cards (king, jack, and queen) are worth 10. An ace’s is worth 11 unless it would cause the player to bust in which case it is worth $1.

The minimum and maximum bets vary at each casino and at each table, but there are some places you can play for as little as $1.00 per hand.

(1) $1.00 tables – Imperial Palace Hotel and Casino

(2) $2.00 tables – Eldorado Hotel, Joker’s Wild, Klondike Sunset, and The Longhorn

(3) $3.00 tables – Sahara, Golden Gate, Silver Nugget, Poker Palace, and El Cortez

Other casinos offer betting from $5.00 and up.

Crap Tables, with a minimum $1.00 bet!

Craps is a popular dice game where players wager money against each other or the bank. You bet on the outcome of the roll dice. Up to 16 people can play at one time. A roll of 2, 3, or 12 is called craps.

The amount of minimum wagering varies at each casino and table, but there are several places throughout Las Vegas where you can wager as little as $1.00. These casinos include: the El Dorado and Joker’s Wild.

So leave your pocketbook at home and bring a few bucks to increase your chances of winning big on fewer dollars!

Want To Make Money Online ‘” Go With Sports Betting

Mostly everyone is looking for an additional income now days, and a lot of people choose to find it on the internet. When it comes to making money online, there are a lot of ways to do that, and certainly everyone has their favorite one.

However it’s not necessary to be working for someone else, and get paid some $200-$300 per month! You can actually use your own money, and turn them into a major profit.

Yup, if you are serious about making money online, why not go with sports betting? You get to be your own boss, and use your own money, and your profit depends only on you.

Now one of the most frequent questions I see is “Is it easy to accomplish?” and the answer is “Not at all”. In fact for many readers, it will be almost impossible and they will just lose their money, without making any profits.

See in order to be really good at any job, your have to be very familiar with it. What I mean is before making the decision to step in, and try to profit, you should read everything there is to read. This way you will see every probably problem you might run into, every tip or trick there might be, every strategy that is being used.

And even then, you are not guaranteed to succeed, but at least you will know you are prepared! So why sports betting? Well if you are a sports fan, first it will be something you love to do. A lot of books interview successful people about their jobs, and their response is always identical “Oh I don’t feel it as a job, because I love what I do”.

Second, sports betting gives you freedom! The freedom to distribute your own money in any way you would like to. The freedom to put as much time as you wish to in your analysis and predictions. The freedom, to choose when to be making money and when to rest. The freedom to realize that your profits and your losses are based on your efforts, and depend on you.

Most money making programs online, will require a lot of time, until you start making serious cash, even if you devote a lot of time and efforts. Why? Because you are making money for someone else, or some company, and you are expecting them to reward you for good work. Well in order to serve them for an extended period of time, you will have to be getting “not enough” to crave more. This way you will be their little servant, that will do anything to get few more bucks.

Sports betting has a different approach. If you are good, and disciplined, you can be making money, from your very first day! The problem is that a lot of people start it with the hope to profit, instead of with the expectation to profit.

Hope without expectations, means you lack of confidence. When you lack of confidence, you will not take the risk when you have to, thus losing an opportunity. When you miss enough opportunities your losses prevail and you lose faith. Pretty soon you do everything with despair and finally you give up. This is pretty much everyone’s story.

Now that you know this, you can take another route, the less common one and get what you are looking for. A lot of my other articles talk about the difference skills you have to posses to succeed, the different strategies,tips and tricks. Be sure to check them out as well before you start your journey to your online career. But before you actually enter into the game, you will need some practice first. So to help you out, you should play some bet games at Pkv.

Seeing How Poker Resembles Life In Many Ways

I know poker is just a game and you can fold up the cards and go home any time you’re ready, but it is fascinating how this game resembles life and every day struggles we all seem to have. There are many ways which poker shares with real life. I know in the short term in both poker and life, luck plays a big factor. In the long term, however, luck is not a factor in either one and seems to somehow even out. You get an unbelievable bad run of luck just to have an unbelievable good run of luck come right around the corner. When you’re in the middle of a bad run, you swear there has never been anything like it before and you are in a state of disbelief. It seems like when you’re in the middle of a good run this is the way it should be and maybe somehow you deserve the luck that is coming your way. Maybe you’re smarter or just a little more deserving than your opponents.

In life, we seem to do the same thing. When things are going well, we somehow take it for granted that this is the norm and this is the way it is supposed to be. When the bad times come and they will, you just can’t believe it and feel maybe you’re being punished for some wrong doings. You feel like god has his thumb on you and won’t let you up. These bad runs finally go away and you’re blowing and going again, somehow forgetting how ugly the bad streak was. This cycle goes over and over.

It’s funny how the true personality of a person comes out in a poker game. If they are conservative and a little afraid of the future, they will most likely play cards like that. They probably won’t risk much on anything but the best of hands. They are what poker players call tight and they are very exploitable by the bluff. There is always a doubt in their minds that maybe their hands just isn’t quite good enough to win and good poker players can exploit this doubt. You run across this type of person every day.

The aggressive or maniac player is usually loud and needs to be the center of attention. They usually jump in a situation before really thinking it through. This is the way they play poker. They are very exploitable by letting them have the lead and simply allowing them to hang themselves. Patience and calmness need to be used when battling such an opponent. This is true in poker as well as life.

The most difficult player to play is the player who can change his or her game as the situation dictates. This type of player is usually quiet and observant of everything at the table. He gives his brain all the information possible to make the correct decision. He adjusts his play according to the situation. He knows the math and this gives him the confidence to make the correct decision even if he loses. These players are the most successful in poker and in life. They gather all the facts, make a thorough analysis of the information, arrive at a decision and implement the action this decision calls for, and finally disconnecting emotionally from the outcome.

People who can read the personality or psyche of another person and make a decision based on this read are always the best poker players. Many are just average card players, but this one ability makes them great. The same thing applys in life.

Texas Hold’Em Strategy: How To Play Pocket Jacks

Texas Hold’em is a game that is very basic in appearance. To the outsider, it seems fairly simple. Look at your two face cards, look at the cards dealt, and bet. The game is, however, much more complicated than that. It is a strategy and knowledge of the game that allows people to make a living playing. If it were simply a card game luck would be more of a factor.

We shall take a look at a hand and situation that may arise in your game. For example, say you are dealt with two jacks, or as they are called, the hooks. This is quite possibly the hardest hand to play correctly. For the sake of this article, you are currently seated on the button in a six-person game. The person first to act folds, the next one calls, then another fold and the action is to you. We will start with the first person to act, the caller. He could have a variety of hands all the way from a small pocket pair to a monster like KK that he wants to trap someone with. With the first option, a weak hand, you would want to raise here and force them to pay more to see the flop. If you raise here and any of the remaining players reraise you, then you have a tough decision to make. If you just call you will have very little information as to what your opponents have and will be letting them all see a cheaper flop. So you decide to raise.

Since all the players might not be available all the time, in such cases, you can paly Poker online. This way you get to improve your gameplay as you enjoy a round of pocket jacks with online players. You have the option to play for free and if you are a pro in the game then you can even earn some money with online tournaments and matches as well.

The small blindfold, the big blind calls and so does the initial caller. Now what? The flop comes 5 9 Q two hearts and a club. The big blind checks and the initial caller bets. The amounts of all the bets have been omitted to simplify this example. We will explore that in other examples. The action is now on you. Since you have two opponents and one has currently bet, your decision is crucial. You need to try and put your opponent on a hand before you proceed. As we said before he could have a variety of hands from a small pocket pair all the way to a monster he is slowplaying. Off the bat, we will rule out a monster hand because it is likely that he would have reraised you preflop to get more money into the pot once you showed strength. That is good and bad news. Here is why. Obviously it is good news because he probably does not have a hand like KK or AA and bad news because he may have flopped a set or if he is playing a medium-range hand like KQ and he has top pair with an excellent kicker. Either way, it is trouble. Calling a bet will only put more money into the pot and it is just delaying your decision. It is a clear raise or folds situation. So you decide to fold.

This is not a bad play. The big blindfolds and the bettor shows his hand. He is holding QJ which is in the range we decided and has you dominated. Not only does he have an overpair he also has one of your outs and you would be drawing nearly dead. This was an example of how playing jacks can be a very difficult task. Perhaps the only way to avoid this is to raise more preflop. That way if someone plays back at you then you can make a crucial decision earlier.

It is decisions like these that make Texas Hold’em one of the most complex and exciting games to play. It is not at all cut and dry and no two situations are the same. There is a lot to take into account when playing each hand. Hopefully, this example was able to give you an opportunity to look at a hand from a different perspective.

Throw A Curious George Birthday Party

Boys and girls from age 1-6 love that silly, colorful, and ever so inquisitive Curious George. For this reason, Curious George birthday parties are a big hit year after year. Creating a Curious George birthday party is quite simple to pull off without spending a lot of money or time. Here, you will find ways to decorate, create Curious George cupcakes, and some good Curious George themed games to make the most of your Curious George birthday party bash. It is like throwing a casino night party. Over the years, casino night has become one of the premier events. So if you want to have a curious George birthday party, it is definitely a good idea.

Curious George Birthday Party Decorations

Curious George is most often associated with bright primary colors: yellow, blue, red, and green in particular. Purchasing streamers and balloons in these common colors is often less expensive than buying all decorations that have the Curious George logo on them. To stick with the Curious George birthday party theme, however, you might want a few items that have that cute little monkey’s face on it. Fortunately, party supply stores almost always have ample supply of everything from inexpensive table cloths, to party favors, invitations, and decorations of all kinds. Just a few inexpensive touches that have Curious George on them is plenty for guests to realize that they are attending a Curious George birthday party.

Curious George Birthday Party Invitations

If you decide not to purchase Curious George birthday party invitations, you can easily make them from home. Simply visit the Curious George site on PBS.org and print out invitations there. Another great resource for printing more generic monkey invitations is kids-birthday-party-guide.com. You can create invitations as simple as printing them out on cardstock or as complicated as printing them on stickers to transfer onto a magnet. Either way, your Curious George birthday party invitations are going to be a hit.

Curious George Birthday Party Games

Before guests arrive, blow up balloons, particularly ones that are yellow, blue, red, and green. Cover the entire floor with the balloons so that guests walk in to a balloon-filled home. Even the youngest children will keep coming back to play with the balloons throughout the Curious George brithday party. Be watchful around small children and balloons, however, as they become a choking hazard if they pop.

For older kids, buy packages of large marshmallows and provide toothpicks. For a Curious George birthday party game that will keep them occupied for quite some time, have the kids create a bridge using the supplies, just like Curious George did in the episode A Bridge to Farm. Have children see how long they can make the bridge, or have them build towers or people using supplies. Older children will also enjoy going outside and gathering up leaves and sticks they find and examine them once inside, like Curious George did in the episode All New Hundley. More games related to episodes of Curious George can be found at this site.

Enlarge and print out a picture of Curious George to use as a “pin the tail on the donkey” type of Curious George birthday party game. Use yellow construction paper to cut out The Man In the Yellow Hat’s hat, or cut out circles and hang yarn from them to look like balloons. Create one for each child, and on the back of each place tape that will stick to the picture of Curious George. Blindfold the child and see who can get closest to George’s head (if you’re using a yellow hat) or his hands (if you’re using balloons).

Another simple form of entertainment is to put on the Curious George Movie or play Curious George shows. Both of these can be rented if you don’t already own them, and are a great way to have a calm-down time during your child’s Curious George birthday party.

Curious George Birthday Party Food

Serve bananas or banana chips, since Curious George is, after all, a monkey. As a matter of fact, anything banana shaped or brightly colored will serve as excellent Curious George birthday party food. Jello Jigglers cut into balloons or banana shapes, sandwiches cut into circles, squares, etc. will all do the trick. For drinks, red punch will suffice, especially since it goes along with the Curious George birthday party color theme. Burgers, pizza, and chips are always great party standbys as well.

Simple Cupcakes for your Curious George Birthday Party

When I put together my son’s Curious George birthday party, I perused the internet for easy, but cute Curious George cupcakes. I found this site and decided that I could do mine even better, even cuter, and even simpler. So, I started with chocolate cake mix and made individual cupcakes. Once they were cooled, I coated them with brown frosting. Then, I used a Nilla wafer and pushed it in slightly underneath the frosting, but above the cupcake to create the appearance of a nose. I used M Ms; for the eyes and black icing gel to create eyeballs looking in all directions. I used the same black icing gel to create two small dots on the top of the wafer to give a nostril effect. Using red icing gel, I made different mouth expressions to finish off my Curious George cupcakes. I didn’t bother creating ears, because I couldn’t get the wafers to break in half easily, and they turned out great just the same. The best part was that if I messed up on the mouth or any part of the Curious George cupcake face, I could easily take the wafer or the M M; out and try again without having to spend a ton of extra time fixing it. The monkey cupcakes were a big hit for our Curious George birthday party.

If you need more ideas, PBS.org is a wonderful resource for decorations, games, invitations and more. When putting together a Curious George birthday party, remember that the children attending are likely going to be fairly young. Don’t worry about making every little aspect perfect, because chances are, it will be destroyed or overlooked before the day is done. Enjoy, and have fun at your child’s Curious George birthday party!
