This week I review a game and toy from the NY Toy Fair 2014 that both really caught my eye!
There aren’t a ton of quality games out there for toddlers, so that’s why Seek-a-Boo is a great find! In this game, children increase their vocabulary and improve their memory skills through repetition. With 36 circle “Seek Me” cards and 36 square “Find Me” cards, parents choose 6 “Seek Me” cards with the same color border. Each border represents a different learning category. Toddlers move about to choose 6 “Find Me” cards with a matching color border. “Seek Me” cards are placed face down and as you choose the top card from your “Find Me” deck, you show the picture to your child and ask him or her to find the picture object. This game is an active cross between memory and matching!
The included game instructions also give parents the option to make it harder for playing with slightly older children or modifying the game for playing with more than one child!
