Feed the Woozle From Peaceable Kingdom #GiftIdea
Here is a company that I really enjoy receiving games from. Peaceable Kingdom carries games that are called cooperative games. This means that everyone is working together towards a common goal, rather than trying to beat each other.
This time we received Feed the Woozle. The game is designed for children ages 3-6, but of course the whole family can join in and have fun. You need to feed the Woozle. He eats the strangest things, Bathwater Soda, Iced Garlic, Fuzzy Donut, or even Fried Sock.
In the game you will find a Stand Up Woozle, 1 Die, 1 Spoon, 24 Silly Snack Tokens, 12 Yummy Cards, and 1 Spinner. A game of Feed the Woozle takes about 15 minutes. There are three different levels to the game. Level One is for ages three to four. Level Two is for ages four to five and Level Three is for ages five to six. The game is played in the same manner all the way through, it just gets a little more difficult. You do need some room to play this game. You set the Woozle on a table about 8-10 feet away from the players. The players have the spoon, die and spinner, along with the snack tokens and yummy cards nearby.
Level One does not use the spinner. The first person rolls the die, and then adds that number of silly snacks on the spoon. They need to carry the snacks over to the Woozle and drop them in his mouth. If you drop any snacks you must leave them there. For every snack you drop in the Woozles mouth you get to take a yummy card. Take turns as you work together to earn 12 yummy cards before the snacks cards run out.
Level Two adds the spinner to the game. For this level you need a spin-master. This person only operates the spinner, they do not feed the Woozle. Just like level one the first player throws the die and puts snacks on their spoon. This time though the spin-master spins the spinner and tells each person how they must carry the snacks to the Woozle. They might have to march, walk backwards, bunny hop or one of the other actions as they carry the snacks to the Woozle. All the other rules are as they were in level one.
Level Three adds a blindfold. Same rules as Level Two, but you now have to do it blindfolded. In each level all players are working together in cooperation.
Peaceable Kingdom carries many other cooperative games. They are great fun and encourage helping one another. Watching the children try to hurry and feed the Woozle and yet not drop any snacks is quite entertaining.
We also received a set of Jean Tats! My daughters think these are great! You can decorate any jean material and then when you wash the jeans the Tats come out. They have sets for both boys and girls. Some are alphabets, so you can place names or phrases on your clothing. You simply peel off the backing and place them where you want them. Use the popsicle type stick to rub them into place. Pull off the paper and you are ready to go. They do suggest washing them separately.
So neighbors, do you have anyone who would be interested in Feed the Woozle? One neighbor will receive this game. Enter now. Thank you for stopping by. See you soon!
