Plants vs Zombies and the Stop Zombie Mouth Campaign a WIN for Kids

Plants vs Zombies – This Halloween, the Zombies are Going to be a Part of Our Treats!

Halloween is supposed to be full of sugary goodness, with enough candy most parents start wincing along with the first “trick or greet.” Thanks to the ADA and PopCap games, this year Plants vs Zombies might be just the thing to supplant the sugar rush of Halloween.

That’s why I was so excited to have a chance to share PopCap Games’ and the American Dental Association’s (ADA) new venture, Plants versus Zombies. It’a a fun, engaging game with hilarious characters (seriously, try to keep a straight face for these guys, lol), and the best part? It helps to raise awareness of kids’ personal dental care in a fun way.

And this year they have come up with an alternative to the sugary treats that keep so many parents wincing — they’re giving away free game codes for PopCap’s hit game, Plants vs. Zombies. It’s a great alternative to handing out treats for Halloween, and exciting enough the kids aren’t reaching around it for the candy!

Andy’s Take? Zombies Good, Plants Funny, Bring it On!

Andy was so excited to hear about it he’s been after me to let him start playing the game now, now, now! I told him he has to wait!

We don’t really do parties, but we are giving away great Plants vs. Zombies trading card packs with a free game code inside at our house this Halloween (along with some goodies, but you have to wait to hear about those!). Andy thinks he should get first dibs on the cards, but I told him he still has to wait … he didn’t think I was being fair!

I’m excited to have something to hand out for our Trick or Treaters this year that isn’tfilled with too much sugar or ingredients I can’t pronounce … and I hope you like the idea so much you consider doing the same!

If you want to give away PopCap’s hit Plants vs. Zombies instead of sweets for Halloween this year can download free game coupons (redeemable for the full PC/Mac edition of Plants vs. Zombies) at http://stopzombiemouth.com, and they can be redeemed at their site starting Oct. 30, but no later than Nov. 10. They are good for the PC or Mac version of the super-popular game, which normally sells for $19.95.

Note from Kat: I’m posting this one on the road right now, missing my boys but having a ton of fun at a Supernatural Convention in Chicago. If you aren’t familiar with this hit TV show from the CW network I’ll forgive you, but I have a special post about the convention and their amazingly proactive and supportive policies toward making their conventions fun for fans with disabilities.

It’s a busy weekend to come here at the Cafe, so run and get your free Plants vs. Zombies now! Do you have any extra special plans for Halloween this year? Do you try to avoid the sugary sweets (and do your kids let you?)? Leave a comment and let me know all about it!

      Ah – thanks! Lots of folks have gotten on the Plants vs Zombies bandwagon with this release on behalf of the ADA – we can only hope more kids learn the importance of healthy smiles over time!
