ThinkFun Giveaway & Review



One of the things I find most important is making sure my daughter has Educational toys & learning material in the house for her to play with and expand her mind. I was happy to accept a review from the toy company ThinkFun for my review I was sent the game Zingo! Sight Words "Zingo!® Sight Words is a fun and interactive word game that brings fast-paced excitement and learning to the classic game of Bingo! Players learn to quickly recognize and read sight words, which are words with spelling that is not always straightforward. Sight words are the most frequently used words in the English language and make up about 50-75% of all written material. Learning and mastering sight words is a key step in becoming a successful, fluent reader. The sight words used in this game have been specially selected by leading educators as the most fundamental for reading development."



We try to sit down once to twice a day to play Zingo together it is a fast & fun game to play with your child(ren), My daughter is three and enjoys playing this because it offers a learning experience along with a fun time. While playing I not only have her match up the words on her Bingo board but I also ask her to spell out the word & tell me what it says some she knows right away others it takes her a little bit of time but she still has a fun time playing. The game is recommended for  Ages:  Grades Pre-K - 1 and allows 2-6 children or people to play at once. Usually when my daughter and I play to make the game go a little bit faster and easier we use two 'Zingo' boards at a time instead of just one. The game is sold for $19.99 on the ThinkFun website & I think it is worth every penny even when your child(ren) outgrows the game you can donate it to a local school or give it to a younger child you know. Since receiving this game we have played it a lot and make sure to get as much use out of it as possible. You could also use the pieces to help your child write down a sentence using the words you selected giving you another educational advantage using the game.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

  1. Smart Mouth looks like it would be fun for my kids. They have classic Zingo (with pics) and LOVE it. The Sight word version would be perfect for my LD 6yo.
