Teddy Bears Brainbox Review and Competition

This is not our first introduction into Brainbox games; eldest has been happily playing “My First Pictures” (aged 4+) for some time now.  So it’s great youngest can play too now, the Teddy Bears version is for children 3+.  The teddy bears pictures are very appealing for that age, they are beautifully illustrated by Rikey Austin of the Alice’s Bear Shop, they even have a teddy bear hospital, rescuing and restoring teddies in need (awww!).


The pictures are all about the bears and their little adventures, so you see a pirate, a chef, an astronaut and plenty more exciting scenarios.  The game is made of good quality strong pieces of card, which is always a good thing if you’re aiming at the heavy-handed 3-year-old market!


Brainbox games are great for giving your brain a good workout.  We enjoyed playing as a family, hubbie and I desperately need to work on our observation and recall skills.  My friends often complain I am disappointing for gossip, as I never remember anything!

Each picture card has questions on the reverse, after the timer runs out you have to attempt to answer all the questions.  If you do you get to keep the card.  I was surprised how quickly our youngest got the hang of it and soon realised the types of things he should look out for to help him answer the questions.  You can also roll the dice and then just answer the numbered question that corresponds with it.  But whichever way you play this is one game you will find yourself returning to again and again.

It is very educational and a game that will grow with your child, obviously as they get older they will be able to read the questions themselves and not rely on mummy and daddy doing it!

We have been offered one of these to giveaway, to enter please complete the rafflecopter below by the 26th of September.
