This is my first go at any of the Mama games. To be honest, I don’t usually pick up the kids 3DS because even the Mario games can make me tense.

Gardening Mama 2 was a relaxing, fun and cute game that allows the player to be a bit creative while planting flowers, veggies and fruit. Arrange your garden to suit your own personal taste.

There is more to Gardening Mama 2 than just plain old gardening, too.  The mini-games to play such as: mowing the lawn, ironing clothes, hanging up laundry, are a bit on the easy side but quite addictive. Like I said, I’m not one for challenging games so this was right up my alley.

I thought this was rather cute and has me checking shelves for older versions of the Mama games to help me pass a little spare time and de-stress.
