While at the Time to Play Holiday showcase I got to see one of the hot toys of 2011, the Hot Wheels Wall Tracks. This is a fantastic toy because it took something that we all know and love, Hot Wheels tracks and shifted the whole dynamic of the experience. Tracks get moved from the floor to the wall. The Hot Wheels Wall Tracks stick to the wall using 3M Command Strips. I love how Hot Wheels went and looked at something as simple as the Command Strips and said, hey, can we use these to stick our tracks to the wall? The answer is a resounding YES!
Want to get your kids interested in Math and think mathematically you’ve got to get them Math Dice Jr. from ThinkFun. All of the ThinkFun games that we’ve played have been fantastic. We’ve got Snack Attack, HyperSwipe and Bug Trails. On my iPad I have Rush Hour and Solitaire Chess, also from ThinkFun. The games are mentally challenging and fun at the same time. Math Dice Jr. is that same sort of game, one that is fun to play and makes you think.
