Piglet's Big Game for Gamecube $19.99 Best Buy B&M

It's also $19.99 at EBGames, mayber other places too, but you can use your $5-off-$19.99-and-up-video-game coupon here (off the gamer's gift card) to get it for $14.99.

Edit: IGN gave this game a solid review, especially for those of you who, like me, have very young video game addicts in the house:

Only if your GF is 8. I bought it for my 2 yr old because she liked it so much when I rented it. It's very cute, but it's a game for little kids.

Wow, the PS2 version is cheaper as well. I had to plunk $35 down on it just last week! God I hope I can still find that receipt.

edit: Found it! Now I've got to go back and get that difference. Do you think I'd get $15 or $20 back because it was $39.99 and used a $5 off coupon?

BTW: Thanks for that info on the pricing
It is a great game for kids. Cute, challenging (for them) and no violence.

Played it with my 4-year-old last night, and it really is very cute, good graphics, nice story. Definitely aimed squarely at young children, though; an 8-year-old might find it too simple, too easy. Still, it's only $15, probably worth a shot if in doubt age-wise.

I just think that it is amazing that you have a 2yr old daughter that can play video games, no matter how easy it is.

No, I play the game and she yells things like "Cookies!" or "Go see Rabbit". It's semi-interactive for her and she loves it. Unfortunately, I also bought a game called "Sesame Street Sports" for the PS1. It involes Elmo on skates, Cookie Monster on a big ball, etc. it controls like mud and is a miserable experience to try and "play" for her. I'm hoping the new Scoobie Doo game will distract her from Elmo, but I doubt it.

BTW: After some discussion with the manager at BB, I got my $20 back and so I got Piglet for $14.99. Not bad at all!
