Dr. Seuss Cat in the Hat Game Review and Giveaway

Thursday, November 17, 2011

---Contest Ended--- The Winner was #14, Coupon Person, for their comment about following Wonderforge on Facebook.  They said they would hide "lincoln logs, duplo blocks, trios, cars, and a tinkerbell" inside the hat.  Have fun playing the game! Thanks to Wonder Forge for giving it away. They'll send the game to Coupon Person.


Our family has played several of the Dr. Seuss games by Wonder Forge geared for preschool and grade school ages. We just tried “What’s in the Cat’s Hat” this month and my kids have had a blast finding things around our house to hide inside the hat.

Dr. Seuss Game
The hat is about 12 inches tall. We hide small toys, crayons, silverwear and more inside.
When I first saw this game on the shelf at ToysRus I thought it was just like our mystery bag we used in preschool. We had a simple drawstring bag the kids would hide a secret item. Then we played twenty questions and sometimes it would take forever for the kids to guess what was inside.

What’s in the Cat’s Hat game really gets the kids more involved and prompts them to ask more helpful questions by using a deck of question cards.  It has a specially designed hat, with a flap on top, to hide objects from view and other secret flaps toward the bottom used for special purposes in the game (peeking, smelling and feeling).

I really loved the combination of using the unique question cards (Does it have a face? Would it float in a bathtub?) along with the action cards (smell it, feel the hat with your elbows). This stepped the mystery bag game up to a whole new level, plus it is Dr. Seuss themed and the kids are drawn to that. Who wouldn’t want to guess what is in the Cat’s hat?

GAME GIVEAWAY:
Wonder Forge will send a copy of this game to one lucky reader. Just in time for Christmas! This would be a fun gift under the tree.

See more about the Dr. Seuss What's in the Cat's Hat? Game part of a series of ‘I Can Do That” Dr. Seuss games by the Wonder Forge.
Here are some of the other Dr. Seuss games we’ve owned for a few years now that the kids love to play:
“Cat in the Hat, I Can Do That!” game.  We’ve had ours a few years and the original “Trick-a-ma-stick” was very tricky to set up and fell over easily.  Wonder Forge has amazing customer service. See how they responded when they saw the negative reviews about the stick on Amazon. If you have this game and want the new-improved stick, click here to find out how to get a free replacement.  They sent us a replacement  and the kids easily set it up.

My son loves skipping around the trick-a-ma-stick with the Seuss toy man in his shirt. In this game they pick an action card, an item card and a how-to hold item card. Below my daughter has to crawl under the trick-a-ma-stick with the Dr. Seuss cake on her back.

This is great at many levels. For younger children , it teaches letter and color recognition. As they get older, it teaches word recognition. For the older children and adults who will be playing with the the young children, you can work through strategies with each turn. Obviously this is a children's game, but it can be fun for all ages. Spending time with the children is the best part.
