the wonder forge :: i can do that! games {giveaway}


There were tears in my house when bedtime was finally enforced here tonight.  Three year old Michaela did not want to put away her new Richard Scarry's Busytown Eye found it! game from The Wonder Forge's line of I Can Do That! Games for preschoolers.  I couldn't really blame her, we were having SO much fun even I had lost track of the time!

I'm not sure which is more exciting for her, the 6 foot long game board, searching for objects in all the Richard Scarry illustrations,  or playing together as a team in order to win the game.

As a parent I appreciate all those things as well as the fact that she is learning how to identify objects even though they may not match exactly to the image provided for searching.  For example, in one round we searched for all the kites we could find.  This included traditional diamond shaped kites, but we also found some box kites and one kite that looked damaged from a crash landing.  I just loved that she is learning to use some reasoning skills in such a fun way.


This game is for ages 3 and up and includes some counting (up to 10), object identification, teamwork and fun!  I easily felt that this was completely age appropriate and that when played as a family game older children would enjoy it as well because of the detailed searching involved.

Richard Scarry's Busytown Eye found it! game :: $19.99
