Gifts & Decoratives chooses ABOUT FACE as the Toy of the Week!

Posted by design on Oct 25, 2012 in Press Articles, Product Feature

This week, Gifts and Decoratives chose About Face as their Toy of the Week!

One of eeBoo’s newest activities, About Face includes 160 Object Images arranged to look like hair, eyes, a nose, or a mouth. When pieced together, children discover hundreds of possibilities for creating faces. Objects range from leaves to paper clips, light bulbs, and sea shells. All of the objects were found on New York City’s streets and photographed by acclaimed children’s book illustrator Saxton Freymann.

Each combination of objects can reflect a different personality, and children get to see how simply changing the mouth may affect whether their Face looks happy, sad, or even surprised.

About Face can be played any way a child desires, but also provides helpful instructions to inspire combinations. Suggestions included are choosing only objects that are red (helps to teach color identification!), objects found near the shore, or only objects with smooth surfaces. When following these instructions, children sharpen their memory and recognition skills. About Face awakens children’s natural sense of design, and inspires “out of the box” visual thinking.

About Face is for kids and up, and retails for $14.99. You can read the review here!
