Mommy Ramblings is back with some more fun games from Wonder Forge. You will remember for our 2011 Holiday Gift Guide we had a review for their Richard Scarry’s Busy Busy Airport Game. Recently, I was sent Konexi, Chuggington Matching Game and Dr. Seuss Matching Game. Our family really likes word games so when I saw Konexi, I knew it would be a great fit. I could try to explain how you play Konexi but I think the video below gives you a much better picture.
If you are looking for a different kind of word game then you should check out Konexi. It is quite fun and adds another dimension of play that will entice those tweens and teens who may not like word games to join in. My little ones like to arrange the letters in alphabetical order and sing the ABC Song while pointing to the letters. I know not what the game is intended for but another application for the letters.
Some games better suited for the little ones are the Chuggington Matching Game and the Dr. Seuss Matching Game. My little ones loves seeing the familiar characters from the Dr. Seuss stories we read, reflected on the game cards. Before we even began to play they wanted to look at the cards and name the characters and the stories they come from. They have recently started watching Chuggington so they also enjoyed seeing the colorful trains on the cards. I really like to play memory games with young kids. My son who just turned 3 a few days before, played for the first time and believe it or not he got the first match of the game. He was so excited. The games come with 72 card tiles and you can customize the game to your child’s age by using fewer cards for younger children and add more as they get older or more adept at the game. Finding the matches really builds their confidence and self-esteem.
