If you are attending Toy Fair next week you should stop by the Peaceable Kingdom Booth to see their newest games including the one that we got to play called Feed The Woozle. Feed the Woozle is a cooperative board game that also helps children develop gross motor skills as well as basic counting. The game is fun to play and entertaining in the silly, slightly gross snacks that the Woozle likes to eat. Eva was laughing at those snacks and having fun feeding the Woozle over and over.
Eva and I played through each level of the game. She’s more advanced than level one, not quite ready for level three but level two is just right for her. I’d like to get her playing this with friends and see how much fun they have together. This is a definitely a fun cooperative game that kids will have fun playing. Level two incorporates gross body movement through fun things like spinning around, doing a hula and even going crazy. However,t he kids need to be aware that they are holding a spoonful of Woozle snacks that need to be fed to the Woozle. So, they have to take care not to drop the snacks.
Here is the official statement from the Peaceable Kingdom’s Toy Fair Press Release.
Feed The Woozle • Ages 3-6 • $20
Woozle is hungry and his mouth is wide open and ready to catch some silly snacks like chocolate covered flies or hairy pickles. Can you feed him 12 silly snacks without dropping them from the spoon? Two to 5 players start the game with a roll of the die to learn how many snacks to put in his big open mouth. With a spin of the colorful spinner they then determine which goofy gross motor movement they will do while walking across the room to feed him. Maybe it’s a Bunny Hop, maybe walk backwards! Be careful, kids, and don’t drop those snacks. If everyone together can feed the Woozle 12 snacks, everyone wins! And giggles are guaranteed.
The preschool game includes a stand-up Woozle, 24 silly snacks, a spoon, a die, a spinner and instructions for three different levels of play.
Level 1 introduces basic counting.
Level 2 adds a gross motor movement a child must perform while making his way to the Woozle.
In Level 3, players rely on guidance from teammates to find the Woozle because they must close their eyes!
