eeBoo Animal Memory Game
(eeBoo $14.95 Score:)

Illustrator Brandon Reese designed these charming animal cards on big cracker-like playing pieces. Knowing and naming the animal pairs helps build language skills and turning the matching pairs over requires visual memory.

 The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.

SNAP IDEAS: Use these to talk about sounds the animals make, colors, or if they have feathers or fur; walk on two feet or four, live on water or land. You don't need to turn it into a quiz, but rather to expand on what they know about these familiar creatures. These and a companion Number game are easier to pick up since they are thick and have good edges for picking up.

2011 Award
eeBoo Tell Me Story Cards
(eeBoo $10.95 Score:)

Use these large cards for playing a story telling game.  These can be used solo, but for starters players can use threes cooperatively to tell a story as suggested by the images on the cards. This kind of game promotes language development, vocabulary, and the ability to make up a story from the liely pictures. There are several other sets of 36 cards with different themes. Newest of the cards ar the Tell Me A Story Animal Village Cards illustrated by Stephanie Graegin. They feature a cast of furry friends romping in their mini village. We also like Lizzy Rockwell's Fairytale Mix-ups with familiar storybook characters such as the Gingerbread Boy, Tinkerbell, and a Wicked Witch among others. For Circus fans, look at Brandon Reese's Circus Animal Adventures, Melissa Sweet's Mystery in the Forest cards are full of action and for the sci-fi minded, look for Saxton Freymann's Little Robot's Mission. 4-8. Also, marvelous, eeBoo's Write Me a Story Pads, as pictured (eeBoo $11.95 each 4.5) The same artists have used the images on the cards to make stick-on seals that can be put on the top of the lined paper. Parents can take dictation of a child's story or older kids can use the stickers and blank pages to write their own tales. Getting kids to tell a story is the first step in getting them to read a story.     The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.
