Celebrate Dr. Seuss Games Giveaway and Review

Thursday, March 1, 2012

To celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday this week, we are giving away five Dr. Seuss games by Wonder Forge. Five lucky people will win one of these games. See below for entry details.  This contest is closed March 8. The winners have been selected.

game giveaway
  We have most of the Dr. Seuss games made by Wonder Forge and my kids have enjoyed them all and played them over and over. See my review of What’s in the Cat’s Hat and the Cat in the Hat I Can Do That! game here.101_0831_1
One Fish Two Fish Search Game Review
This week we tried the One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish search game. My kids, ages 6 and 8, played it with their cousin all on their own after I explained the general rules.  You get to pick a card with an object on it then spin the spinner telling you your options of where to search. If you find the item you get to collect the card (there a few more details). 

Blog Edit Pics5
The only rule I changed was that we played until everyone had collected enough pie-shaped cards to make a circle (six). The rules say the first one to six wins but that normally makes my kids upset, they each want to finish the game.
 
Collages1
They had so much fun making waves (shaking the box).   Of course we had to eat some swedish fish for our snack while playing the game.

Younger kids may need more direction with finding what puzzle piece to remove from the search box, but they’ll love spinning the spinner, shaking the box and searching for the toy pieces.  Even my 19 month-old had fun looking in the search box. I like that the little pieces are contained which makes for a quick clean up. We will be playing this game over and over. It is simple for kids to understand and entertaining to keep them occupied for 20-30 minutes.
GAME GIVAWAY
Wonder Forge has generously offered to give away five of their games to five different readers of obSEUSSed. Here are the games they are giving away.

    My son would have a blast outdoing good ol' mom and dad at the "I Can Do That" game. He is such a silly boy and the game would fit his personality perfectly.

    I think the Green Eggs and Ham Diner game would be fun. I just ordered the One Fish Two Fish game for our activities tomorrow. Can't wait to try it out.

    Btw, on the entry form at Kidlet Occupatioin, it's neither a widget or a Wordpress plugin. It's my husband's wonderful coding.

    I would love to try the What's in the Hat game. I love the idea of items going in the hat and then using your senses to try and determine what the object is. I have a 2 year old and I think that he would have a ball playing that game. It is perfect for a curious toddler!

    I would also love any of the puzzles or matching games. There aren't many games that are geared to the under 3 set, but this website had many.

    I is not easy to decide but I think The Cat in the Hat's I Can Do That the Deluxe edition would be a great game to win. Never had that one.

    Will have a special giveaway on http://kid-lit-reviews.com First, I am putting together a crazy link for a special birthday and then until April 8th, every comment wins an entry for a drawing for an Amazon gift card. It is my first ever to give away.

    The Deluxe Cat in the Hat game looks great. And I have a on turning 4 in June. :) We have the Curious George game similar to the One Fish Two Fish Search game and my son (who is 3 & received it for Christmas) was easily able to understand how to play and it was entertaining for the adults to play with him as well. What a fun giveaway! (This is the first year I've really "celebrated" Dr. Seuss' birthday with my son so this was a great find!
