It is officially that holiday time of year. You know what I mean, it is time for Christmas and Hanukkah shopping. I find shopping for kids can be more challenging as they get older. I never know what to get them because I don’t know what they are into, what they already have or what is actually fun. Blue Orange game is the perfect solution because their games are unique so you know the child you are shopping for does not already have it, they are board games which are always a fun family activity and thirdly because these games are built on fun!
Take Keekee the Rocking Monkey for example. Adorable, colorful and the perfect balancing game for preschoolers!
I am no preschooler but even I wanted to play with Keekee. Perhaps it is because I could play board games for hours. It is always the perfect family fun at home
AGES 3 AND UP • 1-6 PLAYERS
Keekee’s big act is juggling balls while balancing on a giant banana. Talented as he may be, he needs help to impress his friends in the zoo. Find out just how many balls Keekee can balance! It all depends on each player picking the right ball and putting it in the right place. The look on kids’ faces as they watch this little monkey sway to and fro is priceless. With the excitement of the crash, it never feels like losing when playing Keekee the Rocking Monkey. This all wooden balancing game is sustainably made.
Keekee is a great game because the board game itself (Keekee) is built solid using nice thick wood pieces. Nothing flimsy about him. The game is built to last!
You take turns putting the pieces on and the first person that causes one of the pieces to falls off looses. Big Sis just turned 5 and she did loose the first few games but I ended up loosing some as well and I never loose on purpose! I am much too competitive for that! I also like that she is learning skills while playing including manual dexterity, balance awareness and risk assessment. She will need to work on her balance a wee bit more to beat her Daddy as he is currently undefeated.
Blue Orange Games are no strangers to awards either. With their games and the way their company is run they are definitely award winners in my eyes too!
If you are looking for quality games that are not only fun to play but also made from wood then definitely pick up some Blue Orange Games for your family! I love playing board games with my daughters because I like teaching them that not every game needs a video screen! I seriously could play board games every single day and I hope my kids learn to like them as much as I do!
They have tons of games for older children too and you can browse the shop section by age range. I will enjoy checking out the other games as my girls get older to challenge them a little bit more. You can’t go wrong giving a board game as a gift this holiday season!
