What we thought: This was one of the kiddos favorite reviews ever:) As soon as they saw the box of goodies, their eyes lit up. I asked them to pick their favorite item and they listed off each one for different reasons:) The Sneaky, Snacky Squirrel game was super fun and really reinforced color recognition, counting and fair play, while also giving the kiddos some fine motor practice. Definitely the new favorite board game in our home:) Buck, Buck, Moose is our new favorite card game and also really encourages the kiddos to practice their colors and play together nicely. It is a really quick game and would be great for taking along on vacation this summer:) The Playfoam was super awesome because it was so simple to clean up and the kids really had a blast playing with it! A definite plus was that it doesn't dry out!! The Hot Dots Set was most enjoyed by 4 year old A. She said she liked it because it was fun and helped her learn. That is exactly why I liked it:) Educational Insights is a wonderful resource for parents and teachers alike. If you want to make learning more fun for the kiddos in your life, check out the great products at Educational Insights!!
