We love games here at the Dulaney house. I could hardly wait for Miles to start playing board games. We got him his first board games last year, when he was 2.5. Since then, he has gotten more games at his birthday and will be receiving some this year for Christmas. I got the chance to review some items from Patch Products, maker of many games that are already your favorites!
I received the new Design N Doodle Sesame Street, which is a magnetic dry erase board. There are two dry erase markers and Sesame Street character magnets inside. There is a cute Sesame Street design inside and the back of the folded up board has a blank board for doodling and drawing. My boys are big Sesame Street fans and they loved playing with the magnets, but more marker ended up on their hands than on the doodle board! It is a cute toy, but I do wish the magnet board was stronger. The Design N Doodle has a handle, so it is fun for traveling!
I also received The Little Engine That Could game, which is a huge hit with Miles! It’s based on the classic book, “The Little Engine That Could” and comes complete with four trains and a train track!
Here he is, playing it this week:
He caught on very quickly the first time we played it and asks to play it often. Of course, I think his favorite part is when the train goes over the mountain, but why wouldn’t it be?! It’s fun! This game teaches patience and kindness and reinforces reading and counting skills. It’s recommended for ages 4 and up, but my 3 year old loves it!
Patch Products has other excellent Tales to Play games, including Berenstein Bears Learn To Share and Where The Wild Things Are!
