Blogger S’wicked Adores eeBoo’s Craft Line!

Posted by design on Jun 21, 2013 in Learning through Looking, Press Articles, Product Feature

“If there is a kid in your life who’s into crafts—wait, let me rephrase. If there is a kid in your life at ALL, they would have walked into the Eeboo booth and refused to leave. Seriously, they probably would have volunteered to be shipped with the booth back to Eeboo headquarters. Eeboo’s booth was so jam-packed with an expanding crafts line, it was practically overflowing into the aisles…” - S’Wicked 

Eeboo pom pom crafts (Angelica Zambetti modeling pom pom necklace)eeBoo’s Craft Line has been expanding, and some of the newest products are sure to be hits! Check out some of them below!

Posted by design on Jun 14, 2013 in Learning through Looking, Press Articles, Product Feature
Blogger Toys are Tools loves eeBoo’s Scratch Papers! This exciting new product quickly jumped onto eeBoo’s Best Sellers list, mere weeks after coming out. It’s no wonder why, when each paper provides a new and beautiful dimension to drawing.

“It is also great for little kids who are too tiny for figurative drawing,” Petra commented.  “It’s just such a magical look that you can achieve… If you were to teach about lines and shapes which are sort of basic art education units to teach,” she said, “I think it would be nice for that.”

A new approach to drawing: When you make your mark,
You’re actually scratching brilliant color from the dark!
From beneath the inky blackness, flashy foil will shine
To add light and sparkle every time you scratch a line!

Proverbs31 Loves eeBoo’s Educational Activities!

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

Blogger TheProverbs31 reviewed 3 of eeBoo’s top sellers! Alphabet & Numbers Tot Towers, I Never Forget an Animal Face Matching Game, and the NEW Pattern Scratch Papers. This blogger raves that she loves eeBoo toys for their educational value. Like most moms, she’s says she’s always looking for ”toys that will help me teach my kids.”

The first product TheProverbs31 reviewed was the Alphabet & Numbers Tot Towers. This particular product is rich in developmental benefits. Children actualize their fine motor skills with each block they stack, while acquiring improved spatial reasoning skills as they mentally negotiate how to build a tower that won’t fall down.

Teach your little one (ages 2+) the alphabet, numbers 1-10, animals, motor skills like stacking, building, etc.

The benefits for this product, however, don’t end there! The numbers and letters on each block act as the perfect tool for parents to help their children learn the alphabet and how to count. The pictures with simple words beginning with each letter also act as the perfect first introduction to reading.

Next, Proverbs31 reviewed eeBoo’s I Never Forget an Animal Face. 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. The artwork on I Never Forget an Animal Face was beautifully drawn by acclaimed children’s book illustrator, Stephanie Graegrin. Each set has 48 thick durable tiles, making 24 pairs to match!

This game is great for enhancing your child’s spatial memory.

Lastly, the blogger Proverbs31 reviewed eeBoo’s new Pattern Scratch Papers! This craft activity is sort of like “Drawing 2.0.” While children can create a picture, poem, or prose as they would on normal paper, every etch they make reveals an exciting array of colors and designs. This is an excellent tool for parents to use who wish to teach their children the names of colors! eeBoo also produces Foil and Fluorescent Scratch Papers.

What a nifty, creative idea!
