500 categories play

The Toys are Tools Blog is one of our favorites when it comes kid-testing and thoughtful reviews. It is all about the educational and skill building without sacrificing fun. They just reviewed our game Categories. Categories is full of friendly faces doing all sorts of funny things, playing with balls, wearing hats, eating snacks! The objective is to find sets of three that one trait in common, for example, they are all eating.

The expert  Nicole Kolenda, M.S., CCC-SLP, P.C., Speech & Language Pathologist and Jenn both took a look at this game. I think they nailed it when they write,  ”For the eeBoo cards, I think kids need the time to observe and really look at everything….you can’t just LOOK, you have to THINK about what you are looking at.”

eeBoo’s Waste-Not Animal Recycle Kits are the perfect gift for the eco-minded family that plays together. The simple, brilliant idea behind Waste-Not is to repurpose discarded materials by transforming them into toys. Each kit comes with die-cut felt, a plastic needle and thread. Simple instructions show how to turn such items as a water bottle or yogurt container into an adorable cloth friend, such as a fox, hedgehog or Chameleon. Not only do the kits raise environmental consciousness, but they teach simple sewing skills and encourage the valuable, artistic ability to see an object in a fresh way. Recycle a container and make a friend! What’s not to like? Kits are marked with level of difficulty.

Stephanie Graegin, the artist behind eeBoo’s popular “Animal Village” graphics, has lent her talents to eeBoo’s new Animal Tot Tower. Each side of the light, stackable blocks features a different illustration: the face of an animal, a rhyme, and the number that corresponds to the block’s place in the stacking sequence. For instance, the largest block features the number 10, an elephant decked out in a spiffy orange hat and pink dress, and the following rhyme: “The elephant is loyal, wise / And also packed with power. / And when she wants to take a bath, / Her trunk works like a shower.” Awards: Openheim Toy Portfolio Best Toy Award Gold Seal

eeBoo’s newest Spinner Game is an instant classic that the Sugar Plum Fairy herself would adore. The Dancing Spinner Game comes with four different dancers, and with each, a different style of dance: salsa, jazz, step or ballet. After each player has selected a dancer, she must spin for all of the items her dancer needs to perform: costume, bag, bouquet, head piece and music. Collect all the pieces to win, but if you miss a beat – miss a turn.
