Roll And Play by Think Fun was one of our Top Toy Picks at Toy Fair 2012, and while we touched a bit on the play mechanics I wanted to give everyone an update on how it did in real world play.
Our daughter is 2 years old and this was going to be the first “game” we played with her, the hardest part was trying to find some time where the kids (6 and 8) would give us the free time to play. Our first time with the game was while the boys were at school on our daughters 2nd birthday. She LOVED it! What she does is roll the giant plush cube and whatever color you land on you pick a card and perform what it says. Cards range from “Rub your belly” and “Find something RED” to “Clap 8 times” all of which are fun and easy for the child. Sometimes you may need to help with the counting, but a good time is had by all. There are even cards which ask the child to make animal noises or make a certain face, all teaching them and helping them to grow and learn.
The other thing that I wanted to mention is that it is not only a great way for parents to bond to a new child, but we found our older boys really enjoy playing with their little sister, and because the game is easy for them to set up and control, they love being the “big brother” that does not need the help of their parents to play a game with their sister.
Roll & Play is the first game ever designed specifically for toddlers! To play, simply toss the big plush cube and identify which colored side faces up. Choose a matching color card and perform the simple activity shown. “Make a happy face,” “Moo like a cow” the activities supported by Roll & Play are designed to help your child shine, supporting healthy development and celebrating success! Roll & Play is the ideal way to gently introduce play patterns and rules through a loving, joyful play experience!
