When our family sits down to play a board game, it results in a great time… sometimes. Our preschooler is still working on different cognitive skills needed to play a lot of the board games we own and he finds it hard to keep up with his 8-yr-old brother and 7-yr-old sister. Do you face this problem too? I want to include everyone, but it’s hard finding the perfect balance when dealing with kids of different ages.
Well, thanks to Team Mom and Mega Brands, we’ve found a great preschool game that will cater to your younger child, yet entertain your older children. We were sent one of the newest Mega Bloks game called Domino Build. How did it fair at family game night?
Mega Bloks Domino Build Game utilizes simple domino and building game play to introduce multiple skill sets such as colors, numbers, matching, motor skills, etc. Players collect animal blocks after correctly matching domino tiles. Be the first player to collect all 4 animal part blocks and assemble your animal to win.
Thanks to Team Mom, we received the Domino Build Game to review and, right away, I knew it would be a hit for my 4-yr-old. He likes to play board games with his older brother and sister, but becomes quite aggravated at hard some games are. The new Domino Build Game is a perfect game for preschoolers like mine.
My son was ALL about showing off how well he knew his numbers and colors and the game helps him practice those skills throughout. It also leaves room to learn different shapes. What’s perfect, I’ve found, is that it doesn’t cater to just boys. It’s a gender neutral game that allows girls to have fun too. With it’s bright colors and animals print domino cards, it also leaves room for the imagination and creativity. The bold and brightness invites the young and old to play along.
With every game we play, we’re always honest in our assessment so that we can bring you guys thorough reviews and help you in deciding if a toy or product is right for your family. I’ve found the game is easy to play for preschoolers, but we ALL know that most preschooler can become impatient and “waiting” just isn’t in their vocabulary. Be aware that the game takes a little longer to set-up when you FIRST open it. You’ll have to “pop out” the domino tiles in order to use. This took a little extra time that my son expected. Suggestion: Prep the game before asking little ones to play. This will save time and aggravation.
My 4-yr-old LOVES playing this game. He found it fun, entertaining, and easy enough to play by himself with his stuffed animals. Oh yes. He did. What’s more, is it doesn’t have tiny little pieces that might get lost and it nestles nicely in the box it comes in.
You can find the Mega Bloks Domino Build Game at stores such as Wal-Mart, Toys R Us, Fred Myers and EVEN at Amazon.com for the suggested retail price of $10.99.
