When it come to the holidays, you really want to know all about the great toys, and we did find some cool stuff! One company called Think Fun has sent me two great games to review and one is Move and Groove for toddlers from 18 months and up.
This is a great interactive game that you can play with your child and it comes with this big padded cube that your child rolls, or you can roll it for them, when it lands the color that is facing up is the color of card you pick and it has a dance move on it.
Now I would like to tell you that David can do all of these moves but the reality is he just loved us watching us do them and trying to show him how to do them. I thought this would be a quick game to play but, we were having a great time, it was really fun to interact with the kids and just be having a great time as a family! This is a great family game for anyone who has small kids and would also be great in a daycare/preschool environment.
They also sent me a great game to play with Destini called Robot Turtles, this is a maze game and it teaches kids to code, I know it sounds far-fetched, but it is pretty amazing. Basically every player becomes a Turtle Master and they choose a turtle and a deck of cards that match. You stack your cards face up on the table in piles and build a maze with the walls and a jewel. The most fun with this game was when they messed up and they shouted UNDO, they can then debug their “code”. The part that most don’t get is that this game lets the kids boss around adults.
This game was a little more difficult for the kids but once they got it they are having fun in no time. We did have to wait to play until the little ones were down for bed, because you need to concentrate a bit more.
These are great games and at ThinkFun they have a whole lot more games for your kids regardless of their age to get them thinking and learning while having a good time, and we all know that if can get kids to have fun the learning part comes easy!
