~Review~ Educational Insights Games and Toys

~I received these for my honest review, all opinions are 100 my own.~

I am in love with Educational Insights. A whole company devoted to helping kids learn and have fun while doing it. What a selection they have. You can get things for any age. They have also won awards for many of their toys and games. There isn't a better place to get something for your children. It's one of my favorite sites. I was sent two different toys and a game for review. My kids loved everything as you will see.

Our first toy was Dinosaur Puppet-On-A-Stick™, Set of 3. These have been all over my house for 3 weeks now. Everyday I've seen my boys running around playing dinosaur. We've had puppet show's, dinosaur chases and the favorite is the "Growl" around game. Basically that involves the older boys scaring their two year old brother from around the couch or corner. He just laughs and laughs. What I love is Nikolas is learning colors and quite a big vocabulary from this dinosaur play. He was not interested in learning his colors at all before. Now everything he picks up he asks or tells us the color. He loves trying to scare his older brothers with his growls like they do to him.

Welcome to The Riddle Show. This is gonna be a long running hit in our house. My boys are both jokesters and they have been playing with this since the day it arrived. This microphone is so awesome. It's programmed with jokes, answers, noises, riddles and tongue twisters or you can use it as a regular microphone. I have one son who tells a ton of jokes. So he used it as a microphone. My other son is not as sure of himself so he uses the part that talks for you. This has been an encouraging for him. He doesn't feel left out anymore. What a wonderful tool for self esteem.

Here is Michael using the microphone for cracking us all up.

Thomas using the microphone as The Riddle Show.

Last but certainly NOT least is The Sneaky, Snacky Squirrel Card Game! This game was a blast. We played for hours upon hours. Photo's just don't do it justice so I did a short video of a round...

As you can see this is a fast paced and FUN game. Nikolas who is 2 was saying Sneaky Snacky the entire game, and learning new words and colors. We play a lot of games in our house and this is a new favorite. This game is for preschoolers but honestly it's fun for all ages. My 2 year old wanted to sit and play all day, and the 9,12, and 16 year old agreed. It's just a good time fun game.

I encourage you to go to Educational Insights today and look around at all the fun and learning toys and tools they offer. We plan on getting next the Geosafari® Telescope and Microscope Set and the Design & Drill® Activity Center. What fun!
