July Reviews

 1. Play with Paper // 2. eeBoo Paper on Forbes.com // 3. Beat the Summer Slide //

““Paper Engineering: the most portable and affordable building medium is perfect for the summer. Paper allows you to build so many things: balls, books, mobius strips, flowers that don’t wilt but still look way better than fake flowers.”–Jenn Choi

4_5_64.  Animal Rummy, A Game to Hold onto // 5. Obstacles, Think Outside the Box // 6. Non-Traditional Puzzles

“My youngest loved the unusual animals and plants depicted in What Do You Know; my parents studied the artwork; my nine-year-old enjoyed displaying her superior knowledge of Spanish; and I was happy to play something that didn’t involve SpongeBob.” — from the Educated Mom (#4)

Can’t get enough of eeBoo reviews? Don’t worry there’s more!

Time Out New York Kids Chooses About Face!

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

Time Out New York Kids Holiday gift guide 2013: Gifts for preschoolers selected About Face! Thanks Time Out New York!

About Face was created by Saxton Freymann. Saxton collected found objects on the streets of New York, the beach, in the country and wherever else he may have traveled. Once photographed the individual elements come together to create a wide array of funny faces and surprisingly honest facial expressions. eeBoo sales associate Cait captures the flexibility of About Face when she explains why it is her favorite eeBoo product: “About Face is an educational GOLDMINE! By simply using objects arranged to resemble facial features, About Face teaches out-of-the-box visual thinking, encourages the development of facial expression recognition skills, expands vocabulary (name each object with your child), teaches color identification (ask your little one to choose only tiles with red or green objects), and helps a kid express how they feel.”

Posted by design on Jul 12, 2013 in Press Articles, Product Feature

Blogger ‘A Life Sustained‘ loves eeBoo’s I Never Forget a Face Matching Game! They even came up with some inventive ways to play! With her son, the blogger ”played a game in which I asked him to hand me a card by describing it. “Hand me someone with red hair,” for example.” We love this!

The smiling faces of 24 children from countries all over the world are fun and sometimes challenging to match in this memory game. The back cover shows each child and identifies their home country. And for a fun twist on this classic game, eeBoo created I Never Forget an Animal Face. Easily recognizable animal faces are fun to find as players turn over pairs of tiles, searching for a matching pair. Children and adults alike enjoy these games of memory and observation skills!

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!

Gifts and Decoratives features eeBoo’s Waste-Not Kits in this months’ issue! eBoo’s Waste-Not Animal Kits are the perfect gift for the eco-minded family that plays together.

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.

“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!
