Earlier this summer, Elijah (7) learned how to play checkers courtesy of his older cousin. For the most part, we avoid board games with Elijah because, well, the kid is a sore loser. He is getting better, the older he gets, so we are venturing into board games again. I should have known checkers would have been a winner with him, though, because of the strategy and thinking-ahead that one must do (he loves that sort of thing!)
When I was contacted by Educational Insights to review some of their products, Dino Checkers jumped out at me immediately. Combining checkers and dinosaurs? We have ourselves a game winner here, folks.
Elijah loves his Dino Checkers game. See the blue T-Rex waiting? Those are the Kings (obviously, heh.) Once you become a King, you turn into a T-Rex. If you are checked, that dinosaur goes into the volcano (or volcano jail as he calls it). This is just a fun way to make the game of Checkers a little more fun for little kids, and my little guy is all over it.
Dino Checkers is available at Educational Insights for $24.99.
