We have been a fan of ThinkFun games for a couple years now. But recently we got the chance to review a new game by them called Roll & Play! My youngest son as I have mentioned before is 2 going on 3 in June. He is still a little too small for other games so that is why I absolutely love the concept of this game. 

Roll & Play is the first game ever designed specifically for toddlers! To play, simply toss the big plush cube and identify which colored side faces up. Choose a matching color card and perform the simple activity shown. “Make a happy face,” “Moo like a cow” the activities supported by Roll & Play are designed to help your child shine, supporting healthy development and celebrating success! Roll & Play is the ideal way to gently introduce play patterns and rules through a loving, joyful play experience! (from ThinkFun)

The game is so much fun for both my 5 and 2 year old it is something that they can play together. Even though my 5 year old is a little too old for it and it's way to easy for him he still likes playing with his brother and helping him learn. Since my oldest started kindergarten last year he has really thought my youngest son and since he has started reading he will read to his brother and help him with his colors when they are coloring. So it was no surprise that this was a blast for them.  

The large dice is a great way to teach older babies and toddlers their basic colors. Just roll or throw the dice like my son does :) and whatever color the dice lands just pick up a card and see what the card tells them to do. When my son landed on "meow like a cat" card he automatically knew what to do because the card has a cute picture of a cat on it. Most of the cards are easy for toddlers to figure out. My son still struggles a little  with colors but he is doing extremely well for his age. I believe that the game will help him out as well. 

The Roll & Play game helps toddlers with basic skills such as colors, emotions, and counting. Here is a quick video on how to play the Roll & Play game:

The Roll & Play game is fun for both of my kids. Like I mentioned before its something they both can play together. Overall,  I am extremely satisfied with Thinkfun's Roll & Play game.

Please note: I am so sorry I am not able to get my SD card for my camera to work properly,  that is why I am using stock photos please forgive me, as my regular readers know I usually use my own photography. 

Guess what? One lucky winner will win Thinkfun's Roll & Play game of their own! Entering is easy on the Rafflecopter form below! Good luck!
