Little Zen Minds Giveaway

This giveaway has ended. Thanks to all that entered!
It's Toy Time Wednesday and this one is for older children. I came across an inspiring store, called Little Zen Minds, while searching for holiday toys. Little Zen Minds only sells unique educational toys that you can't find at your local Target or Toys R Us. They sell toys for ages newborn-8+ with a variety of categories. They have a easy to use web layout so you can shop by age, category, brand, teacher supplies, top gifts- by age, bath toys and award winning toys. You can find all of their Eco-friendly toys under the category search.

Little Zen Minds sent me the Pandabo game made by HaPe Toys Bamboo collection to review.The game is recommended for ages 4-99. The game comes with a cute wriggly panda, 6 round nature color sticks, 8 square yellow sticks, 10 green half-round sticks, and 1 die. And everything is made out of bamboo!

This is how you play... You can have as many players as you'd like, but 2-4 would be the best. The youngest player rolls the die and whatever shape shows up is what stick or sticks they must put on the panda. The more sticks that are on the panda, the more wiggly it becomes. If any sticks fall when placed, the player is out. The game ends when there is only 1 player left. Pandabo helps children develop balancing strategies and create complex designs to make the next player's move more difficult.

I let Ella try the game and she did quite well for a 2 year old. But she is a stacking queen, so it didn't surprise me. We didn't play with the die or make a game out of it. But I can't wait until she is at the age that we can! I have a feeling she will be beating me. The game to me was like a kid version of Jenga. I think even adults would have fun playing trying to outsmart the next player. The different shaped bamboo makes it easier to get more creative instead of having just 1 shaped block. You can get the Pandabo game at Little Zen Minds for only $14.95!
