Winner of multiple awards including Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Award, Dr. Toy Best Picks, and Parents’ Choice Gold Thinkfun Roll and Play Board GameAward, comes a fun game from Thinkfun that your toddler will love. With the Roll and Play Game, your little one will be a regular part of family game night in no time.

The die in the Roll & Play game is a large plush cube. Each side is a different color. Players roll the die and then draw a card of the same color. Each card has an activity on it. The pictures engage your little one in conversation, therefore expanding their vocabulary. Once the card is read, they get to do the activity.

Card categories include: emotions, counting, body parts, animal sounds, colors and actions. Includes 6″ square plush cube and 48 laminated cards (4⅜” square) that store in a pouch on the cube.

The over-sized soft dice was a loads of fun for my soon to be 3 year old daughter to toss and watch roll around and even our Roll and Play Gametwo shitzu dogs got in on the action.

She loved looking at the cards with all the actions printed on them, and handing the cards to my husband or I to read aloud.

As a parent, I love that the game play emphasizes turn taking and gross motor skills, without the pressure of competition.

My daughter was of course able to do all the activities, as where a younger child may have some difficulty with some of the cards.

Each card features a simple activity—make a happy face, roar like a lion,  give a hug, find something red—to introduce children to patterns and rules. The color cards- are similar to the ever so popular ispy with my little eye game-using color props.

As a parent, I am always on the the lookout for new education games that incorporate learning. With Roll & Play, the opportunities for learning are endless and provide excellent opportunities for my daughter to practice speech sounds, identify colors, follow directions and many more developmental skills.

    Neat idea! I can imagine it would be a great way to play games with different ages. My youngest could participate with the slightly older children well. Sometimes it’s hard to find games for the littler ones but this looks like it would really keep them entertained!

    I think this is a great educational and would be a lot of fun with little ones. My granddaughter is a little small yet, but I could see us having a blast with this in the near future.
