Does your family have “game night”? Ours does…well, we don’t have one specific night each week but we like to play games as much as possible! We feel you learn so much more by spending this time together as a family than by being in separate rooms or just watching television. So, when I found out about the opportunity to review some games – I was REALLY EXCITED! I was to let her know which items I was interested in, so I sent her several thinking she would pick one or two for us. To my surprise, she sent them all! How wonderful!!!
Simply Fun is a company that started back in 2006 but didn’t really get far so they revamped and are back as of 2010 – their focus now = EDUCATIONAL GAMES! (Always a winner! Especially with this homeschool family!)
Here is a more specific breakdown of what we were provided:
Bank It – one of their best selling games…and we can see why! WE LOVE THIS GAME! It is kind of a mixture between Monopoly and Life. The super awesome thing about this game is our almost four-year-old can play along too (with some help, of course). Retail value $34.00. Recommended for ages 6 and up.
Digger’s Garden Match – this game is especially fun for us because we like dogs (as you already know). But it is also good because it teaches the littles color and number recognition along with counting. Retail value $24.00. Recommended for ages 4 and up.
Sum-ol-ogy – hubby LOVES this game…for me, it makes my head hurt. LOL This game is like a math version of Scrabble. It is a lot of fun but does require some brain power. Retail value $40.00. Recommended for ages 8 and up.
Puzzles! The Our World Puzzle Set which includes three puzzles: the states, the solar system and world continents and landmarks. These puzzles are large 17-3/4 x 11-3/4! They are all wooden too! One of the things I really like is the additional information on the bottom of the puzzle, as show above. Retail value $34.00.
Tibbar’s Everyday Big Board: EXCELLENT hands on item for the youngins’! Teaches the number of the day of the month, the day of the week, months, seasons, weather (sunny, rainy, etc). FUN, FUN, FUN! It’s size is about 24 x 24 so it isn’t a little puny thing…it is perfect! Retail value $24.00. Recommended for ages 4 and up. (There are some smaller pieces [the items you put in the holes for noting which is what] so I’m guessing that is part of why it is recommended for 4 and up.)
Our overall opinion of these games = WE LOVE THEM! They are well made and visually appealing. We feel the prices are fair as well.
Now, do you want to know THE VERY BEST PART? Simply Fun has offered to be one of my biggest sponsors for the upcoming A Blogtastic Extravaganza! They will be giving all the above games to my one winner! (This package as a retail value of $158.00!!!)
Stay tuned for the Extravaganza…and your chance to win these amazing games!
