Find It Game... a Review & a Giveaway

The winner is Helpful Housewife! Congrats!

Find It Games recently sent us a game to play with and review. We chose "At the Beach" since blue is O's favorite color, and we love the beach. There are over 40 hidden items to find in this game, and we have had fun trying to find them! The top cap of the game has a list of the objects in alphabetical order, which makes it easy to incorporate phonics into the game. In this picture O is looking for an object that starts with "b."

The lack of loose pieces makes this game great for traveling and playing around babies... since you don't have to worry about them grabbing a small piece and putting it in their mouths (this is a constant concern around here since E is extremely fast and puts everything in her mouth). E also loves to crawl around on the floor while pushing the game and watching it roll.

I really like that through playing this game, O is learning to pay attention to details and to concentrate. This game also requires persistance which is something that most 4 year olds need to practice :)

Find It Games is offering a game to one lucky reader, so comment on this post to enter to win a game (US residents only please). I'll get my random number generator (O!) to choose a number on Saturday night, so please leave your comment by then. Find It Games is also offering a discount that is good through July 31, 2010. Enter FIGBLOG to get 5 dollars off your order.

  8. We've made them out of rice and water bottles, and I also have everything I need to make them out of fabric and clear vinyl :) I really love this kind of thing...another fun thing is that it's a fun game for everyone from O up to her grandparents :)

  20. I used to work at a children's museum gift shop where we carried these. The find it was one of our favorite ways to pass some time, much better than cleaning. We never did find the penny though we tried many different techniques.

  49. These are so cool (my kids would LOVE this). I bet I would get a whole 15 mins of peace :)

    I used to volunteer at a children's hospital, and this type of toy is one they use a lot with kids as a distraction during frightening or painful procedures.Helps focus their mind on something else.
