I’ve reviewed ( and loved ) eeBoo products before and I’m happy to review for them again. This review…Puzzles!

COLORFUL. EDUCATIONAL. HIGH QUALITY.

eeBoo has a variety of puzzles with different piece counts. All cute designs. AND the eeBoo puzzles are made from 90% recycled gray board with soy based inks! The pieces are thick and lock together nicely. A valuable and educational addition to a playroom. They would make a wonderful gift.

Come take a fun visit to the Park with some happy, loveable little Pegs as they race and jump from hole to hole along the colorful tracks in the Park. If you beat the other Pegs to the Ice Cream Cart, you win! This fun, educational game will help kids learn plus(+) and minus(-), as well as help to develop small motor skills and eye-hand coordination.

Now that the weather is cold, enjoy some time playing Pegs in the Park, a winning combination of fun and learning. Little kids (ages 4-8) navigate their peg through the park toward the ice cream cart.
Teaches number recognition, counting, subtracting, & concepts of moving forward and backward.

Game includes game board, 44 action playing cards, and four pegs. See complete instructions on the Jax website or right HERE.  The playing cards depict pleasant park things (like kites and flowers) to advance your peg spaces. Other playing cards show things that are not park favorable (like ants and rain clouds) that direct pegs to go back spaces.  Jax Games quality as always. The board is sturdy and colorful. And the pegs are REALLY cute. Don’t you think so?

My recommendation for this game would be if the board was designed a little thicker and the pegs a little longer to make moving from hole to hole a little easier!

123 Zoo: A Cool Counting Book

by Puck

– Perfect for babies and toddlers
– Small and sturdy format, round corners for extra safety
– A fun and colorful way to practice number skills

6” x 6” inches; board book; 22 pages; full-color art; nontoxic; ages 0 to 3

ISBN: 9781938093081

$7.95

From counting penguins and lions to giraffes and bears, this board book introduces toddlers to the familiar sights of a zoo while making basic numbers fun to learn. Parents and children can count to 10 using iconic zoo animals depicted with vivid colors and a bold design. Perfectly sized for small hands, this durable board book also includes a “Let’s Talk” section with conversation starters to help parents begin a fun discussion with their kids.

 

I happily recommend this cool counting board book by duopress. Each two page layout shows a large number and that same amount of a particular zoo animal. It contains only pictures and numbers but the vibrant colors and illustrations keep a young learners attention. It’s a favorite choice for seeing and counting elephants, hippos, bears, lions, giraffes, flamingos, zebras, gorillas, penguins, and birds. I think number three is the best with three different kinds of bears!
