It’s finally here! The sequel to the best-selling Gardening Mama DS game that’s sold more than 13 million copies, Gardening Mama 2: Forest Friends is now available now for Nintendo 3DS. If your children like the original Gardening Mama, they’ll love this new game. In the game, players can plant and tend to their gardens with the help of furry critters while learning the importance of food. Mama and her woodland friends need your help growing flowers, fruits and veggies for Bear’s Restaurant, Cat’s Beauty Shop, Rabbit’s Flower Shop, Squirrel’s Cake Shop and several other fun stores.
Your stylus is used as your gardening tool as you plant, grow, and harvest your crops. You can decorate your garden with over 100 items that you earn while playing. What will you grow in your gardens? Juicy watermelons? Plump eggplant? Spicy hot peppers? Your animal friends will mail you asking for help and you’ll need to plant, nurture, harvest, and deliver the garden items to their various stores. If you do a good job you’ll be rewarded with items such as seeds, flower bulbs, trees, and more so your garden critters can expand your garden, make their shops bigger, and attract even more customers. There are also fun mini games as well like ironing and mowing the lawn.
Gardening Mama 2: Forest Friends is a great game for children to learn all that goes into growing a garden. My girls really enjoy playing it. The animals are adorable and the game is lots of fun. Fruits, veggies, flowers, and woodland animals…..what’s not to love!
