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!

Some Tips Before You Start:

Sometimes we start crafting by making lots of simple shape and combining in different ways. For this craft we made A LOT green flowers!

Gather everything you need first!

You can always choose different colors, add new parts or take things away, there is no right or wrong way.

For most of these projects you can sew or use hot glue—for young kids, ask an adult for help!

TD Monthly Picked eeBoo’s NEW Community Game as a Perfect Gift!

Posted by design on Aug 1, 2012 in Press Articles

TDmonthly Magazine picked the best games that make excellent Holiday gifts and eeBoo’s Community game is among them!  Community is a cooperative game that can be played collectively or solitarily. Regardless of the number of players, Community provides children with the chance to directly connect with the concept of community during playtime. TDmonthly reports that Community inspires children to “think about what truly makes a home, a theme that is very appropriate during the winter holidays.”

The object of Community is to connect Home and Location Tiles as efficiently as possible using a set of Road Tiles. Each Location Tile represents an important staple in communities, such as the School, Museum, Library, Park, Spiritual Center, and Stores. Children take turns placing their tiles, but since successfully connecting all locations isn’t guaranteed without careful planning, the best results come from when all players work together as a team.

Community includes 82 flocked tiles which are all illustrated by children’s book illustrator Saxton Freyman. The tiles are placed on a soft, green flocked board which prevents sliding and folds out to a 18″ x 18″ board. The game is for players 5 and up, and retails for $20.00.

Community is one of four Cooperative Games designed by eeBoo.

Stay tuned for the Oppenheim Award Announcement in September!

New York Family Magazine: eeBoo’s Pencils a “Wish List Wonder”!

Posted by design on Nov 4, 2011 in Press Articles, Product Feature

This month, as the first snows fall, lights decorate trees along Park Avenue, and both Lincoln and Rockefeller Centers set up their festive trees, New Yorkers are starting to think about gifts and the holiday season! New York Family Magazine has made its Holiday recommendations, and we’re happy to share that eeBoo’s 24 Color A Walk to the Sea Watercolor Pencils are included!

 

The pencils were selected as one of the magazine’s Wish List Wonders, heaping noteworthy praise that they are great for “creative Kiddos ” and that they “erase the choice between pencils and paint”!  Our Watercolor Pencils have long been an eeBoo favorite, loved both for their quality and the loveliness of the design. Paired with our Walk to the Sea Sketchbook, the pencils make the perfect two-part gift! Please get in the spirit with us…New Yorker or otherwise.

Update: The price for the pencils listed in the magazine,$20.95, is actually the suggested retail price for A Walk to the Sea Watercolor Pencil & Sketchbook set. Watercolor Pencils alone start at $15.00.

You can read New York Magazine’s November issue here, and check out our 24 Color Watercolor Pencils here!

Praise for Obstacles in San Diego Family Magazine!

Posted by design on Oct 19, 2011 in Press Articles, Product Feature

This month, Obstacles will be featured in San Diego Family Magazine.

After it was given to a family to try, the game won this rave review, an excerpt of which will be printed in the November issue out today, October 21st:

 

Pleasant SurprisesWe took it to dinner with us and it was great for the table-very easy to understand the directions and travels well.

 

 

What is one thing that other parents should know about this toy? This is an inexpensive game that kept our kids entertained and using their imagination.

 

 

What did your child like best about this game? Using his imagination and creativity.

 

 

Child’s quote: This game is SO MUCH FUN!

 

 

Additional Comments: This game is great for kids of all ages. We highly recommend it! Ryan’s sister and friend (ages 9) had just as much fun playing. It kept them occupied and they played the game 3 or 4 times in a row. I was surprised at how much the kids (kindergardener and 4th grader) enjoyed playing this game together. It was a big hit!

 

Obstacles, eeBoo’s first cooperative game, has been creating something of a buzz! Since its release, Obstacles has been awarded a platinum Oppenheim, been featured on the Today Show and been highlighted by a growing number of regional parenting guides and trade publications.
