Fun for kids:
eeBoo Giant Shiny Dinosaur Dominoes
eeBoo, maker of artfully designed toys for kids, has created a winning combination of dinosaurs and dominoes. Alas, these dominoes are made of cardboard and will never be able to race around the room in Rube Goldberg fashion. But, young kids will love them nonetheless. Each shiny domino includes the images, names, pronunciation and footprints of two dinosaurs. There are seven dinosaurs illustrated in the set. These colorful dominoes were made for small hands and have won the artist, Monica Forsberg, an Oppenheim Gold Best Toy Award. Is it time for the family to introduce the youngest members to the joy of dominoes?
For those of us of a certain age, we have fond memories of playing jacks with friends on the playground or on tile or wooden floors. At home we practiced mastering tensies and other difficult scoops. Jacks is a game of dexterity and rhythm that helps to develop a child's coordination and sense of accomplishment. These Schylling Jacks are made of metal and come with a small rubber ball and a carrying pouch. Introduce a child to the game that's been played since the days of ancient Greece. Or get a set for yourself, practice, and get ready to teach them how to play!
