Mac&Toys Finds an Educational Goldmine in eeBoo’s Mosaic Game!

Posted by design on Apr 12, 2013 in Learning through Looking, Press Articles, Product Feature

Blogger Mac&Toys has reviewed eeBoo’s Mosaic Game! eeBoo’s Mosaic Game is a fun-yet-educative activity, that is heavy with developmental benefits. Arranging the felt triangles to recreate the picture on a given card elicits spatial reasoning while providing a space to boost hand/eye coordination.

For the youngest children, the beautifully dyed felt triangles are a perfect tool for teaching color and shape identification. As kids begin to age, eeBoo’s Mosaic Game introduces fractions as players mentally negotiate how many triangles are needed to make a given shape.

Children and adult art students alike can improve their sense of design and exercise innate creativity while mastering the process of making images on the cards — and coming up with new designs of their own!

“With a hands on approach, you can use the triangles to teach younger children about colors and a variety of shapes.  You can also work on improving fine motor and grasping skills when picking up and releasing the different shapes.” – Mac&Toys

Posted by design on Dec 18, 2012 in Press Articles, Product Feature

Inner Child Learning reviewed the Top Educational products on the market, and named eeBoo’s Matching Games as one of them!

“eeBoo games are eco-friendly, sturdy, and printed with bright soy based inks. I love the company’s emphasis on nature, diversity, and all that is unique. Colin adores the I Never Forget a Face Memory Game too, for children ages 4-8 years.  For children 3 and up, try the Preschool Nature Memory Game or the Preschool Numbers Memory Game.” – Inner Child Learning

eeBoo’s Matching Games are a classic eeBoo item that children and (parents!) can use expand to their memorization skills. Concentration or Memory games are played by facing all pieces face down in a grid and then lifting up a pair at a time while trying to find a match. Fun to play, this game heightens focus and attention to detail while enhancing spatial memory. eeBoo has commissioned beautiful artwork on a variety of themes for a unique series of this classic game. Each set has 48 thick durable tiles, 24 pairs to match, 2.25” x 2.25”. They are great played in multi-generational groups, and no reading is required.

eeBoo has 5 Matching Games, along with 4 Pre-School Matching Games. For children ages 5 and up, available styles include Life on Earth (seen above), I Never Forget a Face (pictured below), I Never Forget an Animal Face, Classic Matching, and Candy. Each Matching Game retails for $15.99.

For younger children, there’s Pre-School Color (seen below), Animals, Nature, and Numbers. Each game is for little ones 3 and up, and retails for $12.99.

TD Monthly Picked eeBoo’s About Face!

Posted by design on Dec 12, 2012 in Press Articles, Product Feature

“In this fun game, kids create an endless cast of characters as leaves, ribbons, coins, seashells, paper clips and a variety of found objects combine to make millions of faces. 160 object images. Made from 90% recycled materials.” – TDMonthly

Not only has About Face become a Best Seller, but it has also won the Oppenheim Best Toy Award (sticker included) and the Oppenheim Snap Award. About Face features four tiles with images of found objects that resemble facial parts, such as hair, eyes, a nose and mouth. As kids flip over and rearrange the tiles, they are presented with an infinite number of educational benefits. While it teaches out of the box visual thinking and inspires a sense of design, it also teaches facial expression recognition. About Face can be used to teach color identification when asking kids to pick only objects that are red. It can be used to help expand a growing vocabulary as parents point out the name of each object. 

About Face is for ages 3+, and retails for $14.99. You can read the full review here.

Woman Around Town Reviews the Creative Possibilities for About Face!

Posted by design on Nov 12, 2012 in Press Articles, Product Feature

Woman Around Town reviewed eeBoo’s About Face for this years’ Holiday edition. About Face, one of eeBoo’s newest games, has been met with tremendous enthusiasm and has quickly climbed eeBoo’s ranks of Best Sellers. Not only has About Face become a strong seller, but it is a winner of the Oppenheim Best Toy Award — Gold Seal, and the Oppenheim Snap! Award.

About Face features images of found objects in categories of objects arranged to look like facial parts — such as eyes, a nose, a mouth, and hair. Children are encouraged to flip over and rearrange the tiles to create a multitude of different faces. About Face’s educational benefits are wide ranging, from teaching out-of-the-box visual thinking, encouraging the development of facial expression recognition skills, to teaching color identification (choose only tiles with red objects), to expanding vocabulary as children ask parents what each object is.

Children reap the creative potential found in open ended play when playing with About Face. The writers of Woman Around Town report two kids’ imaginative play in their Holiday review. You can read the review yourself, seen below:
