I bought Boggle Jr. for JY as his birthday present this year after reading some very good comments and recommendations made on this educational game for preschoolers. I have to admit that I totally agreed with them, the game is marvelous! It let your preschooler learn their ABC in a fun way. This easy version of the terrifically popular adult Boggle uses pictures and matching games to allow children to make the connection between objects and their names.
After tested it out with JY, I bought another set as a present for my 5-year-old niece CW, and she love it so much too! Further more, when your kids have out-grown the vocabularies, I guess you can even make your own picture/word cards with more complicated words to replace the existing set.
The product description:
“Can you spell ‘CAT’? Let’s learn how! Here’s a specially designed Boggle game that helps preschoolers learn their ABCs! Boggle Jr.’s easy matching games teach young children letters, spelling and reading, all while they’re having fun! The game is meant for 1 or more players. The package includes Boggle Jr. game tray, 30 picture/word cards with 60 three and four-letter words and eight letter cubes.”
Here are some words from the manufacturer:
“This preschool ABC learning game grows with each child! Match letter cubes to picture/word cards in 2 multi-level games. Games introduce letter and word recognition, matching, spelling and memory.”
