Do you already watch the Today Show? If so, you probably spotted eeBoo’s USA BINGO featured as a “Best Educational Toys”. Stephanie Oppenheim, of the Oppenheim awards, did a spot and featured eeBoo. The clip is super cute and has kid’s playing the game.   http://www.today.com/parents/holiday-toys-avoid-these-3-big-mistakes-1D80298536

Scroll ahead to about 2:50.  Our favorite moment is when Matt Lauer asks about facts- yes of course there are fun facts on the back of each card! That’s what eeBoo is all about, learning through play.

Purchase US Bingo at your Local Toy Store or visit our eeBoo online shop. 

Congrats to all our fellow toy companies also featured on the show!

July Blog Review Round Up!

Posted by design on Aug 4, 2014 in Press Articles, Product Feature

We love moms who blog, and write, and review! This summer we’ve been in touch with some great reviewes who always have something new to teach us about our products. Take a look here:
July Reviews

 1. Play with Paper // 2. eeBoo Paper on Forbes.com // 3. Beat the Summer Slide //

““Paper Engineering: the most portable and affordable building medium is perfect for the summer. Paper allows you to build so many things: balls, books, mobius strips, flowers that don’t wilt but still look way better than fake flowers.”–Jenn Choi

4_5_64.  Animal Rummy, A Game to Hold onto // 5. Obstacles, Think Outside the Box // 6. Non-Traditional Puzzles

“My youngest loved the unusual animals and plants depicted in What Do You Know; my parents studied the artwork; my nine-year-old enjoyed displaying her superior knowledge of Spanish; and I was happy to play something that didn’t involve SpongeBob.” — from the Educated Mom (#4)

Can’t get enough of eeBoo reviews? Don’t worry there’s more!

Time Out New York Kids Chooses About Face!

Posted by design on Nov 11, 2013 in Learning through Looking, Press Articles, Product Feature

Time Out New York Kids Holiday gift guide 2013: Gifts for preschoolers selected About Face! Thanks Time Out New York!

About Face was created by Saxton Freymann. Saxton collected found objects on the streets of New York, the beach, in the country and wherever else he may have traveled. Once photographed the individual elements come together to create a wide array of funny faces and surprisingly honest facial expressions. eeBoo sales associate Cait captures the flexibility of About Face when she explains why it is her favorite eeBoo product: “About Face is an educational GOLDMINE! By simply using objects arranged to resemble facial features, About Face teaches out-of-the-box visual thinking, encourages the development of facial expression recognition skills, expands vocabulary (name each object with your child), teaches color identification (ask your little one to choose only tiles with red or green objects), and helps a kid express how they feel.”

We’re so proud Design Tiles made a big splash in Canadian Family’s Holiday Gift Guide in their November magazine.

If you haven’t read Jen Choi’s review of this product on her blog:  Toys are Tools you should take a moment to give it a read through! Jen’s thoughtful reviews and creative toy testers ended hit on many of the high points of Design Tiles: an art medium that doesn’t require drawing, detail oriented, pattern recognition and more. But our favorite point the review makes is towards the end. Design Tiles teaches one “How to make sense without saying a word!”

Thanks Canadian Family and Toys are Tools!

eeBoo’s Obstacles as seen by Education Week:Teachers

Posted by design on Sep 11, 2013 in Press Articles, Product Feature

We actually stumbled across this review–which always makes a review like this extra special! Tamara Fisher, a writer for the blog and a gifted education specialist, found Obstacles at her local toy store. It is worth reading the review in the whole, but her general point is creativity is declining, “Of possible concern regarding creativity is apparent evidence based on research that children’s creativity .. has been declining in recent decades” but games such as Obstacles can counter act this decline and  ”be a fun way to encourage kids to think innovatively about how to solve problems and overcome barriers.”  Visit the blog to read the whole review: Obstacles as a Path to Creativity.

I love that Tamara touches on the flexibility of Obstacles’ rules. Her and her fellow players also came up with some stunning solutions! “Our solution to the Ice Obstacle involved placing the cushion on the shower curtain, using the stick of butter to grease up the shower curtain’s surface area on the ice, and pulling the cord from around the cushion to attach from the shower curtain to the giant bird who would fly and pull us across the ice as we used the feather duster for a stabilizing rudde.r”

Thanks Tamara for the great review!

You can purchase Obstacles here or at a local retailer!
