For Halloween, I'd trade my stash with my brother in exchange for chores. Easter was better, I'd receive gifts.
Puzzles were my favourite, however, I have many fond family memories of sitting around a board game and spending time together.
When I received the opportunity to share Outset Media Games with you (for a second time, I knew that I wanted to get the kids involved and,
Start a new Easter family tradition of our own.
Who better to do that with than a great Canadian company like Outset Media Games. Since 1996, they have been producing high quality entertainment that promotes learning, fun and family time. They are 100% Canadian owned and one of their many awards is the Neighbourhood Toy Stores of Canada (NETS) "Supplier of the Year" of which they are a five-time recipient.
We received several different sized "Create your own Puzzles", pencil crayons, and Farm Dominos.
Artemis took to the puzzles like a fish to water. She loves them as much as I did as a child. Max enjoyed deconstructing them. The pencil crayons are triangular which made it easier for small hands to grip and kept them from rolling away. We even tried creating a puzzle with markers and it turned out great. Next up, crayons.
A really cute touch was the "this puzzle created by" label on the back of the puzzle. And an added bonus, the puzzles are for sale at the National Art Gallery Gift Shop in Ottawa!
The Farm Dominos were a hit. The kids loved looking at the nicely illustrated cards and calling out all the animals and their sounds. The box says that the game is intended for ages 3+, however, Sidney came over and joined in the fun and she's just over two years old.
I look forward to playing this game with the kids for years to come.
Want something for grown ups? You have to check out their "What" game and "Canadian Trivia Family Edition" to name a few. Journeys of The Zoo is not responsible for the hilarity that will ensue.
