PopCap online games helps kids minds stay active all summer long!

Posted Jun 04 2009 10:09pm

If you’re not yet familiar with the increasingly popular hidden
object genre of video games, I’m hoping to get them on your radar.
PopCap Games, the leading developer /publisher of G-rated,
family-friendly word, puzzle, action and hidden object games are a terrific way to keep kids minds
active and developing during the summer months…and best of all, kids
love them!

We asked Dr. Carl Arinoldo, New York based child psychologist and
author of Essentials of Smart Parenting: Learning the Fine Art of
Managing Your Children, to evaluate the games. According to Dr.
Arinoldo, “Games such as Mystery P.I. and Amazing Adventures Around
the World could certainly help improve concentration and focus. But
perhaps the most significant benefit would be the potential to
develop or strengthen a child’s observation skills. By searching
for specific objects on a screen filled with hundreds of images, the
mind is forced to pay close attention to detail. This skill is too
often lacking in the classroom and may frequently make the difference
between success and failure in pretty much all school subjects.” We
were so excited by Dr. Arinoldo’s comments that we felt compelled to
get the word out to parents eager to find new…and fun…ways to help
their kids succeed in school.

The games involve finding clues to solve a mystery…they alternate
between hidden object challenges and a variety of puzzles and
matching games that strengthen memory.
