Toys are Tools  blogger loves eeBoo’s visual skills activity, About Face

About Face features images of found objects in categories of objects arranged to look like facial parts — such as eyes, a nose, a mouth, and hair. Children are encouraged to flip over and rearrange the tiles to create a multitude of different faces. About Face’s educational benefits are wide ranging, from teaching out-of-the-box visual thinking, encouraging the development of facial expression recognition skills, to teaching color identification (choose only tiles with red objects), to expanding vocabulary as children ask parents what each object is.

Winner of the Oppenheim Best Toy Award, and the Oppenheim Snap! Awards.

“…it’s such a wonderful way to expand vocabulary associated with feelings.” – Toys are Tools

“Petra Pankow, who has taught me so much about the role of art in education told me this.  “There is a certain magic in this ability to make meaning in this way, that I think, as you grow older you might actually lose this.” – Toys are Tools
