Check these reviews of Educational Insights' learning games and toys for kids: Brick N'Mortar Kit, Blokus, GeoSafari Sea Search and the Capsela Bug Builder.


Building Games & Activities

Your 'rents and other stone agers have a saying, "Rome wasn't built in a day!" And that, if you don't already know, means no matter how hard you try, some things just take time to finish. When you're done, you're all "boy, that was tuff, but look how great it turned out!" Not so much with the Real Brick Stone - Brick 'N' Mortar Kit from Educational Insight. After spending some serious mortar moments with the Statue of Liberty I realized, no matter how hard you try, you can not build fun and excitement out of tiny Pez bricks and mortar, even when it comes complete with a microscopic wheely barrow and trowel. Huddled masses not include.

Adventure Activity Games

Now, if you're more of a Bikini Bottom fan, Educational Insight offers you GeoSafari Sea Search. With this seriously wet think pad you are the navigator in seven salty interactive adventure games. But the games are pretty repetitive and if you answer wrong the ships computer doesn't bother to tell you the right answer. After navigating this treacherous topography my sea-worthy suggestion, if you're looking for a big, plastic study buddy, is check out the Quantum Pad from Quantum Leap.

Games of Anatomy

Capsela Bug Builder, again from Educational Insight, you can use the translucent parts to create your own moving insects while discovering all about the science of gears and motor. Part of the popular interchangeable Capsela series, the bugs are pretty cool but their movements are lame. If you really want to build some mean, motorized insects check out Gearbotics Sonic Insects from Learning Resources.

Mind Games

And last, but not least, comes the award winning Blokus. This simple but challenging game looks easy, but you have to use your grey matter if you want to avoid your opponents traps. Think Tetris. Think fun.
Rating: 4

Best Bet, Best Game:
The winner of today's educational cage match is Blokus.
