I am a huge proponent of learning through play. I love watching my daughters work out problems, try out different techniques and explore their worlds while they play. This year, for the first time, our tree will have a lot of games underneath it! Rowan is a touch young for many games at 2.5 but she never wants to be left out, so I was very happy that my friends at TCG Toys introduced me to the Fisher-Price line of games that are aimed at toddlers and preschoolers.
First, a little about the games:
- Fisher-Price See ‘n Say Talking Game: This electronic memory game features classic farmyard sounds, just like the iconic Farmer Says See & Say. Kids simply match the sound with the appropriate farm scene card to win the game! For 2-4 players. ($19.99 / 3 years + / Fall 2013)
- Fisher-Price Barnyard Bingo Game: A barnyard full of animal and color matching fun awaits! This game helps preschoolers learn their colors and identify different barnyard animals. Kids pull the lever and “BOING”… a chip appears! The first player to get the three coins that match the color of his or her fence cards wins. For 2-4 players.($14.99 / 2 years + / Fall 2013)
I remember thinking that the See & Say was the coolest toy when I was little, so I think it’s great that they have a game based around it now. I also really appreciate that there is a built-in storage area on the back of the See & Say for the cards. The Fisher-Price Barnyard Bingo Game is a much shorter version of a classic bingo, since you’re really just matching the coloured chips to your card, which is perfect for little ones with short attention spans.
There are multiple ways to play each game, including versions that increase the difficulty as your child gets better at playing them. That’s a great way to keep a game interesting and it means that we can have slightly different games going for each child so it won’t be too hard for the 2.5 year old or too boring for the 4.5 year old.
One lucky reader will win the Fisher-Price See ‘n Say Talking Game and another lucky reader will win the Fisher-Price Barnyard Bingo Game from TCG Toys!
