We got a real kick out of Cranium Hullabaloo. This game says ages 4 & up but my little guy did a pretty good job of playing. It's nice because it has the option of setting the game for beginners or advanced players. This game will also get your kids up an moving. There is no sitting involved - it will have you dancing and bouncing around. It reminds me of a little of twister - if twister talked, taught you things, and made you move about in odd ways. My son had a great time playing - he would even play by himself. I was pretty impressed to see how quickly he picked up on the concept and to see how well he knew his colors & shapes. This would be lots of fun for playdates!
Cranium also has a new line of games made for 3 year olds and up. They are also really easy on your wallet at only $10 a game! I found them all to be great learning tools and lots of fun to my son. Here is a brief description of the learning benefits found in each game. Our favorite was the Puppy Pals Bingo!
- Puppy Pals Bingo - teaches you to match colors, shapes, and patterns!
- Duck Duck 1-2-3 - great practice for new counters
- Polar Bear A-B-C - fishing fun that helps teach your children how to spell & make words
