I was just in New York last week for the Toy Fair, and got to see a lot of great toy companies, including Learning Resources!!
They have come out with a great new line of toys for 2012!!
I, and the boys are lucky enough to get to try some of the new toys out!!
Our first toy for the New Year is the Cash Bash- Electronic Flash Card Game.
"I need money" is the catch phrase of Mr.Douglas. When ever he see's cash, he needs it!!
This game is right up his alley. He can now count all of the money that we "owe" him. He tells his Aunt that she took his money all the time, and makes her give him money each time he see's her. I honestly don't know where a two (almost three) year old could come up with these things!!
This game is great for kids learning to add numbers. Ben Jr understands it more, but Doug loves it too!! You can race the clock to add up figures.
On the game, there are buttons for each coin denomination, and for $1, $5, and $10 bills.
This is a cute and educational way for kids to learn how to count money, and do simple mathematics.
I am very excited that the good folks at Learning Resources are giving one of you the same Cash Bash that I got. I know your kids will love it too.
