Discovery Toys Review and Giveaway...

Thanks to Cindy Madison with Discovery Toys we got to review some great products!

First we got the Speed Wiz card game...

This is a fast-paced, innovative, on-the-go brain game that expands vocabulary, organizational, sorting and categorizing skills. Game cards are printed with categories that encourage players to quickly make mental associations. Keep the categories going or you're knocked out. 

This game is perfect to pack with us when we travel. It is fun with two players and also a group of people. We thought it was great you can play multiple game variations and levels of difficulty for all ages. We even got creative and made up some of our own games! 

Next we got the Wordy Speedy Spell game... 

Spin for the letter count, then compete to form words and earn the most points! New words can begin on any red square. Blue squares double your score. Instructions include 2 modes of play: Basic Play, with single players taking turns, and the super fun Speed Play, with all players able to simultaneously form words.

I was so excited to get this because I love word games! We played this game for family night and we all love it! It was fun seeing all the words we could come up with. Guess who won... yep mom of course :) This is our new favorite word game for sure!

Another fantastic product we got is the Marbleworks Starter Set...

Connect colorful tubes, chutes and bases together in different ways to create an infinite number of raceway configurations. As the marbles speed through the course, children learn about the laws of gravity, object permanence and cause and effect. 46 colorful tubes, chutes and bases, 10 marbles.
