14 May Playing Eco
The Discovery Channel Store comes up with the coolest toys. The camera my daughter has is great fun so I thought I’d try out one of the eco friendly games they’ve got going. Considering we love games around here I thought Rapido sounded kind of fun. You know, quick and challenging. My youngest daughter looooves a good race so a game where you have to race to win is alright by her. Except when she can’t win. Perhaps it’s a sore loser kind of thing or maybe the game is just a little too advanced for her (or maybe a little of both) but after trying it out, she’s not super excited it.
I thought it seemed fun enough-picking up these little marbles with a bamboo tube in the same color pattern as your little game board but she’s not hip to it. I think it was because each time she picked up a marble she would end up losing it out the top because she was tipping the tube and they were rolling out. Bummer. I will offer a kudos to Discovery for trying to get some games made of ‘sustainable materials’ out there (instead of plastic) and I’ll definitely be giving this game another chance in like a year when my daughter is closer to 6. I’ll let you know what happens.
