Noodleboro Review & Contest

Remember all the fun you had playing games as a child? I loved Candy Land and Clue and Life (as long as I was the banker!)

As an adult, I still love to play games. Did you know Chris and I have NEVER lost at Trivial Pursuit? When we get together with the Hubmeiers, we have great fun playing rowdy games of Balderdash, Cranium, and Guesstures. And we L-O-V-E card games! Hearts, anyone???

I recently had the opportunity to review a new game from Playskool Games. It's called Learning to... Listen Pizza Palace Game, and it's part of their new Noodleboro series. This line of games focuses on teaching children important social skills like listening, manners, and sharing. And they do it in a fun way!

The game is for players age four and up, so Evie hasn't had a chance to play yet! But the game also includes a book and audio CD that she's been enjoying.

The game itself is super-cute. Basically, the parent is the customer who orders a pizza. The child has to listen to the order and build the pizza with the correct toppings. Once enough pizzas are built, the chef hat reaches the giant hat and everyone wins! There are also teamwork and timed versions for variety.

Now that the weather has turned cooler, I can't wait to have friends over for a game night. This game will certainly be on the agenda for children!
