This is one of those reviews I’m really excited about writing because I had SUCH a great experience with the company and products.  As moms, we all have favored brands and toys for our children – we know from experience which toys they play with the most, what stimulates their minds, and what brands sell the highest quality.  For me, Learning Resources has been added to my mental list of top brands for moms.  Why?  Because of the selection, quality, and learning power they offer – to kids of all ages! 

But one of the top reasons is that their toys and games are just plain FUN.  Kids will never know that mom is secretly teaching them math, science, reading, and even how to handle their money and time.  Or, if they’re older and do know, they’ll be having so much fun they won’t care.  :-)

Sky High Scoops Colorful Count & Stack Game

I’m a fan of their games in particular since introducing my daughter to Sky High Scoops, Learning Resources’ stacking game that teaches colors and counting for preschoolers.  During gameplay, players are told to see how high they can stack the scoops without letting them topple over.  One player will be asked to add one blue scoop, and the next to add three scoops of any color.  The next player might be asked to remove two scoops.  The “ice cream bowl” is giving all of the directions, and in a very clear voice.  It’s really very fun and simple – perfect for preschoolers, who can become frustrated easily.

I wasn’t sure if Emma would be able to play a game with me yet (she’s 2 1/2), but she took to this game right away and loves it so much that she takes great relish in bringing it out and putting it away every day.  Sometimes she plays by herself, other times I play with her – she enjoys herself immensely either way!

What We Like…

  • There is an on/off control with volume control dial.
  • It is for 2-4 players but little ones can practice their colors and numbers alone, too!
  • The voice is clear and easy to understand (Emma has had no problem understanding).
  • This game is colorful and attractive, a toy that no preschooler can resist!

See it in Action…

Final Thoughts: This game is a total 5 out of 5 stars and gets thumbs up from both me and my toddler!  I couldn’t be more pleased with how Emma responds to this game and all the practice she’s getting learning her colors and counting, and she couldn’t be more pleased with how much fun this game is!  She really appreciates the electronic side to this game, and the challenge of trying to keep the scoops from falling.  I anticipate that this will be a game she enjoys playing with friends and her little brother as she grows older.
