#HGG12: Peaceable Kingdom’s 2012 Toys WIN Oppenheim Best Toy Awards!

Christmas break is right around the corner, and even though they’ll be receiving a bunch of goodies…you can bet that they will be chanting those two to three words that drive us bonkers – “I’M BORED”. Luckily, I have a few more years before I have to hear those words (excluding whenever those words part my lips :p). Peaceable Kingdom has cooperative games that will not only entertain your children, but also teach them valuable skills that they can take with them throughout their journey of life. 

Peaceable Kingdom’s new 2012 toys actually WON the Oppenheim Best Toys Awards! Stephanie Oppenheim is one of the top contributor’s to NBC’s TODAY Show, and every single one of Peaceable Kingdom’s new toys won an award! Their Seed for the Birds and their Race To The Treasure games won the Oppenheim Platinum Best Toy Award! Feed The Woozle, Snug as a Bug in a Rug, and Willy’s Wiggly Web received the Oppenheim Gold Best Toy Award, and Willy’s Wiggly Web was even featured on the TODAY Show!

I received two of the games that were awarded the Oppenheim Gold Best Toy Award, and after testing out each game – there’s no question why the won! These games are educational and provide a wonderful learning experience for kids ages 3-6. While my daughter is a little bit too young to play with these games, she watched me set the games up and had a few pieces that she had her eye on. 

Feed the Woozle is an adorable and colorful game that will entertain your kids while you complete any household chores that you are behind on (I’m guilty!).

The game includes:

  • 1 stand-up Woozle
  • 24 silly snack tokens
  • 12 yummy cards
  • 1 die
  • 1 spinner
  • 1 spoon
  • Instructions for all three levels

Feed the Woozle has three different levels that will grow with your child. The first level is geared towards children ages 3 and 4. This is the easiest level, although it requires concentration and dexterity. Each player rolls the included die and places that number of silly snacks onto the big, blue spoon. The only rule is to NOT drop the snacks!

The second level is for children ages 4 and 5. The players are required to do all of the steps in level one, with the addition of spinning the spinner. Whatever the arrow lands on, the player must do that designated action (whether it be hula-dancing or walking backwards). While this will provide LOADS of laughs and smiles, they must be careful to not let the snacks fall onto the floor! 

The third level is the toughest level, as it is designated for kids ages 5 and 6. The only difference between this level and the previous levels is that your kids must perform all the actions with their eyes closed. The other players are allowed to aide them to the Woozle. This is great for building teamwork and trust. 

I must comment on the names of the silly snack tokens. They are CRAZY, but definitely humorous! With names like Fried Sock, Sugar-Coated Sardines and Fishy Cupcake…your children will be giggling the duration of the game!

Willy’s Wiggly Web is equally as adorable, but requires a bit more work. This game calls for 2-5 players ages 3-6 years old. The object of the game is to help the small bugs out of the web before Willy the Spider falls off. The web is quite wiggly, as told by the name of the game. After the web posts and paper web are put together, each player will take turns drawing a card and following the instructions written on the card (this will probably require an adult’s help). 

The game includes:

  • 1 pair of child-safe scissors
  • 6 web posts and a base
  • 2 Willy the Spiders
  • 10 wiggly bugs
  • 30 cards
  • 50 paper webs

Like Feed the Woozle, Willy’s Wiggly Web also has three levels for different age groups. The first level is super easy, as all the players are instructed to do is make three cuts on the web and pass the scissors to the next player on the left. The second level requires that the players pick a card and follow the instructions (which will say how many cuts to perform, as well as which way to pass the child-safe scissors). This requires cooperation, as the players must make sure that Willy the Spider does fall! The third level is trickier than the rest, as you insert the level 3 cards into the deck. The instructions on the cards will determine whether they move one seat to the left or the right. Players are encouraged to design a cute bug dance as they are switching from seat to seat.

You can purchase both the Feed the Woozle and Willy’s Wiggly Web cooperative games for $19.99.
