My family has always enjoyed playing games. It’s a great way for adults and kids to bond and share some laughter over a little friendly competition. Games make great gifts, too, especially for the holidays! After the presents are opened, everyone can gather around the table after dinner and join in on the fun. Many people play the traditional games, like Scrabble or Monopoly, but I often like to discover something new. So, I’m excited that I found a new line of games this year for our family. Played with a really funky fuzzy cube -- yes, really! -- the Kubit2me games are so much fun! These unique games are winners of the 2008 Creative Child “Game of the Year” Award. They encourage interaction and communication between parents and kids, but in a relaxed and fun setting. But, best of all, your kids will love them. The games include:
Now You’re Talkin’
In this high-energy game of self-expression and social interaction, thought-provoking questions get tossed from player to player. Now You’re Talkin’ encourages open and honest communication about engaging topics where every player’s opinion is important and valued. Game questions focus on beliefs, opinions, relationships, memories and just about any topic that affects our everyday lives!
Truth or Dare
This is a new twist on the traditional Truth or Dare game that ’tween and teen girls love to play at sleepovers! If you score a point, you get to grab a glitter bracelet from the cube’s hidden compartment. Yes, you wear your points! The first person to score ten points (bracelets!) wins!
If you’ve got preschoolers or kindergartners at home, you’ll want to check out Lil’ Scholars. They’ll love the fuzzy cube and its pockets, and they’ll have so much fun they won’t even mind that they’re learning about ABCs, vocabulary, number recognition, counting, sequencing and more. Even comes with reward stickers!
You can also purchase “bonus boxes” for all three games, which provide more cards, stickers and bracelets. To purchase games or bonus boxes, please visit the Kubit2me website at www.kubit2me.com. You can either order online or visit their list of retailers to locate a store near you.
