Blogger MAC&Toys has found a new eeBoo favorite: Obstacles! The new review raves about the developmental benefits, and laughs, that it brings. Obstacles provides children with an assortment of Obstacles to overcome during the game, in order to get back to Home. Tool cards are provided, with wide ranging ideas like a Propeller Hat, Puppet, or a Peanut Butter Sandwich. Each child must mentally negotiate which Tool card is best in each scenario. Obstacles encourages problem solving, cooperation, and imagination.


My favorite way to play the game with a small group of kids is to have them each put down a tool on each obstacle and explain how they would use it.  After each of them has finished explaining how they would use their tool, the group has to decide which tool would be most effective for that given card.  It might take time to negotiate and come to a decision but I think it is a tool that will help our kids in so many life situations.  Learning how to negotiate can be a difficult thing to teach kids, especially the ones that I work with.  Doing it in a fun and lighthearted way may be a good non-stressful way to practice the skill before generalizing it to other life situations. – MAC& Toys

…what I love most about this game is that you can never be wrong and that you are required to really think outside of the box.  - MAC&Toys
