Cube Buddies to help fix faces. That just sounds weird when I write it but there's cute characters. The purpose is to help place the eyes, hair, lips, etc into the proper places. Pretty clever, huh? It'd also help to educate kids.
Overall though, decent image quality and sound with interactive mind-stimulating games. Battery life was decent. I was able to get a good 1.5hours of play in without taking too much off the battery life. You can check the battery left in each cube which I found neat.
Sifteo is a great add to your portable games this holiday season. It'd be great for keeping everyone occupied during the travelling. I would say 3 cubes (the basic) is definitely enough to start play but for games like Sandwich Kingdom, additional cubes definitely made it easier on my life! They do plan on making multiplayer games which I'm looking forward to but for now, it's mostly single player games.
