0 Educational Toys Planet Review
I have the pleasure of being a part of the review program at Educational Toys Planet. They sent me Super Bingo for review. It has a plastic base that holds a plastic sphere that holds the bingo numbered balls. There's a hand crank on the side that you rotate it with. The game is designed to have a number fall out each time it rotates. Then, you place the number on it's spot on the plastic base. The players mark off their cards with translucent red plastic markers. This way you can play the game over and over again.
The game is very loud when turning the ball over with the crank. This could be a plus or a minus depending on how you look at it. While playing with the children, I didn't seem to mind the noise, because it was part of the fun, turning the ball. To the kids, the louder the better, so you know they loved cranking the handle super fast so that it was as loud as possible. The downside, would be if you are trying to do something in the other room while the children played on their own and you can't hear yourself think because of the loud game in the other room. This is where I start yelling like an old fart to stop that racket! :)
I love the game of Bingo and had a lot of fun playing this game. You just can't go wrong with one of the classics. We've played other versions of Bingo before, but the kids had so much more fun with this one. It's because they get to turn the ball to get the numbers themselves, taking turns of course. My kids are terrible with sharing when it comes to games.....Mom, he said it was my turn next.....Mom, she's not playing by the rules.... Oh, yes, I'm sure you've heard it all too.
Educational Toys Planet has a wide selection of other games too. They have their games and toys broken down by interests such as Math toys, activity tables, and Motor skills to the left of the page and age groups along the top of the page. It's so easy to browse through and find just what you're looking for. While looking through all of their selection, I'm excited to try out more!
