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!

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.”

Ocean Magazine, a travel magazine for women, featured eeBoo’s picnic game as a great go to activity when enjoying fall picnics. They write, “one of the most enthralling games for a small group to indulge.” We love it because it is great for mixed ages and doubles as a play set!

eeBoo’s Obstacles as seen by Education Week:Teachers

Posted by design on Sep 11, 2013 in Press Articles, Product Feature

We actually stumbled across this review–which always makes a review like this extra special! Tamara Fisher, a writer for the blog and a gifted education specialist, found Obstacles at her local toy store. It is worth reading the review in the whole, but her general point is creativity is declining, “Of possible concern regarding creativity is apparent evidence based on research that children’s creativity .. has been declining in recent decades” but games such as Obstacles can counter act this decline and  ”be a fun way to encourage kids to think innovatively about how to solve problems and overcome barriers.”  Visit the blog to read the whole review: Obstacles as a Path to Creativity.

I love that Tamara touches on the flexibility of Obstacles’ rules. Her and her fellow players also came up with some stunning solutions! “Our solution to the Ice Obstacle involved placing the cushion on the shower curtain, using the stick of butter to grease up the shower curtain’s surface area on the ice, and pulling the cord from around the cushion to attach from the shower curtain to the giant bird who would fly and pull us across the ice as we used the feather duster for a stabilizing rudde.r”

Thanks Tamara for the great review!

You can purchase Obstacles here or at a local retailer!

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.
