Walk the Dogs challenges you to collect the longest row of the same dog breed in a row to score big points and win the game! But, you’ll have to watch out for the dog catcher! This is is a really creative game where children first line up the dogs from head to toe. Game play reinforced learning skills about the “beginning” and “end” or “front” and “back” of a line. This game is made for ages 6 and up and for 2-5 players. This game was really cute, though setup did take a while. I had my 5 year old set up the game and then once it was ready the directions were easy to understand and I loved the ease of teaching front and back and other such terms while we were playing. He quickly picked up on their differences and was able to follow along and play. We played twice and both times my son beat me by getting a long combo of matching dogs all in a row! The second time we played, we just picked up where we left off in our chain of remaining dogs and continued to play, which worked fine decreasing the setup time.
Tibbar’s Big Box of Words encourages spelling practice and helps children to grow their vocabulary. It has 3 skill levels that let children first practice by looking at a variety of words and letters, next children can learn by matching the letters then see, and finally you can hide the words and see if your child can ace the spellings on their own! This game includes 60 words and 10 letter cubes. My oldest loves any game with dice, so I thought this would be a great and unique way to introduce practicing to spell. My 5 year old really enjoyed playing with Tibbar’s Big Box of Words and independently played for about 45 minutes at a time during the dice and finding the letters. I love that this game is something that grows along with his learning and I can use it to challenge his spelling when he gets tired of just matching the letters. We both love the built in draw that stores all the letter cubes.
Pickles’ Veggie Pick is a new game that was just released in January! It is for 2-4 players ages 6 and up. In this game you play as bunnies who try to collect veggies from the garden before getting caught by the farmer or the dog! This game reinforces counting, collection, and risk-taking skills. Pickles’ Veggie Pick has several different ways you can get caught which made the rules harder for my 5 year old to pick up on. This isn’t a game he’d be able to play without an adult helping with the rules along the way. Gameplay was easy enough to follow, though, and he loved counting his way through the garden and sending my rabbit home whenever he could! It’s a cute game and was fun to play, my son is just a bit young to follow all the rules of this game independently.
