Below the Surface 1008 Piece Puzzle- A Review!

Posted by design on May 20, 2016 in Just for Fun, Product Feature

I’m Madeleine, a former employee and fan of eeBoo. I’ve always been a fan of grand gestures with a dramatic flair, which is why I decided that my family should meet my boyfriend’s family in a mansion that can be only be described as an evil villain’s lair. Sure, they could have met in Kansas City, where they both live, but what is the fun in that? That is how it came to pass that we spent a week in a four-story Airbnb mansion in Colorado. What we didn’t expect was the daily snow that comes with staying on top of a mountain in late April. Thank goodness I brought the eeBoo Below The Surface 1008 piece puzzle!

 We cracked open the box and sat at the table near the cozy fire to start flipping all of the pieces right side up. What I love about this puzzle is that everyone can work on it at once from all sides and angles. Monika Forsberg‘s art is orbicular around a central starfish that acts as the puzzle’s Northern Star. The first day we didn’t get very far. We put together some of the edges and started grouping together the schools of fish. I named myself the Boat Captain and started collecting the pieces for all the boats. I hoping the nickname Boat Captain will stick, so please continue to call me that.

Day two: we got all of the edges together, then we really started cooking with oil. Pieces were flying left and right. The box was handed around, so that people could look at the the artwork we needed to put together. We worked as a team on the coral. I placed the final ducks and swans around the edges. As a team, we dove into the schools of fish deep below the surface.

 Day three: our spirits were higher than ever. We knew we would complete the puzzle that day. This puzzle is challenging, because there are very similar schools of fish and birds on different sides of the puzzle. You may think that you found a piece that goes with the section you are working on, only to discover that it goes on the opposite side. I may be a mere Boat Captain, but I would say this is the hardest 1008 piece puzzle that I’ve ever put together (and the only 1008 piece puzzle). I’d recommend the Below the Surface puzzle for older kids and adults to work together on. Thanks eeBoo, for helping our families come together. We had a blast below the surface!

Holiday 2015- eeBoo in the Press

Posted by design on Dec 22, 2015 in Articles we like!, Award, Just for Fun, Press Articles, Product Feature

Holiday 2015 has been a bustling season for eeBoo in the press! Good Housekeeping loved our Greenmarket Game so much, that they awarded it as a best kid-tested toy of 2015. Meanwhile, over at the Today Show, the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio named our decidedly low-tech Giant Floor Puzzle as the winner in their Best Toy 2015 series, as it scored the highest among several toys closely reviewed by children, meaning it is fun to look at and easy to play with! Our Noisy Ball continues to be a distinct choice for children under a year to play with,  as Parents Magazine included it in their roundup of American Baby’s Best Toys of 2015, and eeBoo classic, About Face has a shining moment on HLN weekend express as a best toy for children with special needs with its endless combination of objects to create expressions!

We love moms who blog, and write, and review! This summer we’ve been in touch with some great reviewes who always have something new to teach us about our products. Take a look here:
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!
