Your, mine and our kids' favorite books The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Brown Bear, Brown Bear What do you see? come to life in a new collection of board and card games from the The World of Eric Carle, the wonderfully imaginative author who started it all.
Newly introduced to the bright, vibrant and colorful stock of products that sprouted from the lovable books are:
Eric Carle’s ABC Game
The Very Hungry Caterpillar Game
The Very Hungry Caterpillar Match and Munch Game- Dr. Toy 2012 Award Winner
We are giving away each of the four new games in our 25 Days of Christmas giveaway, and next up is Eric Carle Games and Puzzles System - Eric Carle's Match-ominoes
Using the characters from Eric Carle books, this game is a combination of the matching game, bingo and dominoes.
Again, like with the Very Hungry Caterpillar game, my children, ages 4, 7 and 10, enjoyed playing with a game featuring characters and images they were familiar with. It was a bit challenging keeping the interest of the older two, but my 4-year old loved matching and stacking up the pieces. She and I ended up outlasting the other two. Afterwards she wanted to play again.
The game teaches the skills of concentration, memory and associating objects. It also reinforces decision making skills.
Since the children do not watch TV or play video games during the school week, this game will be a wonderful addition to have among various other non-media options to have. It is also a good game for game night and for play dates.
Get it HERE as an supplement to the other mindless toys your youngest kids may get this year.
