Categories is on the Toys are Tools Blog! + Giveaway

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.”

Head over to the Toys are Tools blog QUICK and you can enter to win 2 free games.

Purchase Categories at your local toy store or at the www.eeBoo.com

eeBoo’s Waste-Not Animal Kits include all of the required materials, except for a Recycled Object. For the Waste-Not Fox and Chameleon (featured in the review below) and Waste-Not Fox you will need 1 plastic water bottle, and to complete your Hedgehog you will need a plastic yogurt cup. These fabulous critters double first as a Craft Project and then as a new Toy to Play with!

Crafting has a variety of benefits such as encouraging the development of fine motor skills,  helping to foster a joy of productivity (who doesn’t love the feeling a showing off a finished art project?), and awakening a sense of design and visual thinking. eeBoo’s Waste-Not Kits also provide children with the arena to consider reasons for Sustainability and Recycling.

eeBoo in the Mountains!

Posted by design on Dec 20, 2011 in Product Feature

eeBoo is delighted to have been selected for a review and giveaway over at Tales of a Mountain Mama. “Tales” is a blog chronicling one mother’s love of her family, the outdoors and mountain living! “Instantly impressed” with eeBoo, this mountain mama says she particularly appreciates that our “games and activities are based on old-fashioned formats which are updated for today’s kids.” We were happy to share some of our games and crafts, which were then thoughtfully reviewed! Go ahead and give it a read! 

The featured games, which included Pre-School Colors, Lacing Cards, Wildlife Matching and Obstacles, were suggested as welcome diversions from bad weather, as well as solutions to indoor confinement. And moving into the winter months, we all have plenty of that ahead of us!
