Kidsday: Dining at Jekyll and Hide

When I went to Jekyll and Hyde in midtown Manhattan, I was super scared. There are talking pictures and moving pictures everywhere. There are all sorts of interesting and exciting things that might get you in the mood for a scary Halloween!

There are two Jekyll and Hyde locations in Manhattan. There's one that's really cool and scary near Sixth Avenue and West 57th Street, and another in Greenwich Village.

The one I went to first in midtown was more scary and exciting. What's cool about this restaurant is that you have to try to find the bathrooms. The entrances are hidden in the walls; you have to push the walls until you see a secret doorway. One time, I opened the boy's bathroom door by mistake! In the bar area, where the parents might sit, the stools move up and down when you least expect it. I think it might be a little scary for kids younger than 4.

Jekyll and Hyde Restaurant is at 1409 Avenue of the Americas; 212-541-9505; jekyllandhydeclub .com.

Jekyll and Hyde of Greenwich Village is at 91 Seventh Ave. S.; 212-989-7701;

Video game review: SpongeBob SquigglePants

I tested the Nickelodeon Wii uDraw video game SpongeBob SquigglePants (THQ). It was hard at first. I kept practicing until I learned more about the game, and I loved it!

To play SpongeBob SquigglePants, you have to have the uDraw game and the Wii. The SpongeBob game has games, and you can draw on the screen. The games get more challenging at each level.

Sometimes with the games, you don't have to use the pen. There is a little bubble at the right bottom corner that tells you what movement you have to make with the pen. For example, you would have to tap, draw or flick. Other times, it will tell you to tilt the drawing board. There are times you have to color or draw.

To move up a level, you have to complete each game in that level. There are more than 100 unique challenges in this video game.

I never got bored playing it.

Video game review: Rio

Rio (THQ) is a fun video game to play. The good thing about it is that there are so many games to play on it, like Dodgeball. I think this game is best for kids ages 5 to 7, although it will take a little time for them to learn how to play it. I am 10 but still like the games on it. Below is my 7-year-old sister's rating.

RATING: 3 of 5
