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.

The Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Picks the Best Games for Pre-Schoolers!

Posted by design on Sep 24, 2012 in Press Articles

 

 

 

 

The Oppenheim Toy Portfolio sought out “easy to do activities with your preschooler that will help them as they learn concepts in school“ for review and two eeBoo activities were among the selected! The two games chosen are eeBoo’s brand new About Face, and eeBoo’s classic Pre-School Colors Puzzle Pairs.

The Oppenheims write that “The most important gifts you can give your child are opportunities for them to see themselves as capable learners.”

 


One of eeBoo’s newest activities, About Face includes 160 Object Images arranged to look like hair, eyes, a nose, or a mouth. When pieced together, children discover hundreds of possibilities for creating faces. Objects range from leaves to paper clips, light bulbs, and sea shells. All of the objects were found on New York City’s streets and photographed by acclaimed children’s book illustrator Saxton Freyman. Each combination of objects can reflect a different personality, and children get to see how simply changing the mouth may affect whether their Face looks happy, sad, or even surprised.  About Face can be played any way a child desires, but also provides helpful instructions to inspire combinations. Suggestions included are choosing only objects that are red, objects found near the shore, or only objects with smooth surfaces. When following these instructions, children sharpen their memory and recognition skills. About Face awakens children’s natural sense of design, and inspires out of the box visual thinking.

About  Face is for children 3 and up, and retails for $15.00. It is the winner of the Oppenheim Best Toy Award – Gold Seal, and the Oppenheim Snap! Award. The Oppenheim review imparts that About Face is “a good talking game with objects to know and name and extend vocabulary.”

 

Color Puzzle-Pairs encourages color recognition and naming in young children as part of a fun activity. Each color is associated with simple objects, animals, and food so that kids can carry their color-naming skills into every day life. Every color is labelled to support pre-reading ability and alphabet recognition. Little ones can also master motor skills as they use their hands to piece the puzzle pieces together.

Color Puzzle Pairs is for children 3 an up, and retails for $14.00. It is the winner of the Oppenheim Best Toy Award — Gold Seal!
