My kids love playing games. Board games, card games, iPhone app games...it doesn't matter, they love them all. Unfortunately, at the ages of two and three, Addie and Lincoln are not always able to understand the rules and especially can't play a game by themselves. I can't tell you how heartbroken their faces are when I tell them that no, the time to get out a game is NOT when Mommy is folding laundry and there are 17 other toys scattered around my feet.
All of that to say - when I come across a game that they can play by themselves or with very little mess, I am a happy mama. So, I was really excited when we received Doc McStuffins: Spot It! Numbers & Shapes, a card game from Blue Orange Games, to review.
This game is aimed at preschoolers ages 3 and up, and can be played with 2-6 players. It comes in a super convenient tin and is small enough to ride in my purse and be used as a restaurant distraction or on a playdate with a friend.
The game itself is easy and fun for little ones to play! There are 31 cards, featuring a colorful assortment of numbers and preschool-appropriate shapes amidst Doc McStuffins and her friends. Between any two cards, there is always one match. The first person to spot the match between each set of two cards wins the round!
We love using this game to work on shape and number recognition. Since it includes a favorite character, my kids don't even realize that they are learning when they're pointing to each matching object.
Spot It! games are available in Alphabet as well as Numbers & Shapes, and feature other favorite characters like Jake & the Neverland Pirates, Frozen, Sofia the First, Disney Princess, Planes, and more! Find out more at Blue Orange online or find a store that sells their games in the USA. You can also follow along on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest for the latest updates.
