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!

The Simpler the Toy, the More Complex the Play

Posted by design on Nov 4, 2013 in Articles we like!

We just came across an interesting article today. Our favorite point, which we try to exemplify in all of products, was Friedman’s quote: “Generally speaking, the simpler the toy, the more complex the play,” Friedman said. “The more complex the toy, the more simple the play. You want to find toys where children have options for what they do with it. If it’s a toy that can only be used in one way, don’t get it.”

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!
