TOS Review - Jeepers Peepers

"Jeepers Creepers where'd you get those peepers? Jeepers Creepers where'd you get those eyes?" Sorry, the name of this game takes me back to elementary school (forever ago) when we sang this song for a class performance. I can also break out in "I'm Looking Over a Four-Leaf Clover" if the situation arises. I digress... 

I was first introduced to the Super Duper Publications company when I was in college -Let's Goooo Mountaineers! 41 days until the 2012 football season kicks off! 

Again, I digress. I am having issues focusing today. My apologies. 

As I was saying, I discovered the Super Duper Publications company in college. In the field of Special Needs education, they are a premiere resource for learning materials. However, you don't have to be working with a kiddo with special needs to use their learning products. They have something for everyone! I just love, love, love educational materials! (Bonus points if you can name the literary character that would have said that previous line...well, the "love, love, love" part.)
We had the pleasure of reviewing the game "Jeepers Peepers, The Ask and Answer Question Game". 
 The game works on the following educational skills:  questioning, describing, categorizing and problem solving, as well as, turn taking and social skills.

The object is for a player to choose a photo card (and not look at it - which caused a couple extra drawings from the photo card pile by a certain smallish player who shall remain nameless), put the card into the wacky plastic glasses (which you are wearing, of course) and then ask yes/no questions of the other players to guess what the photo card is.  The game comes with six pair of glasses, 101 photo cards (in five categories:  animals, food, transportation, people, and things), a spinner, bingo chips, cue cards and instructions.  
My musings:
We really enjoyed playing this game.  There is a similar game on the mainstream market that we also have, but this one is of much nicer quality (Which I totally expected from Super Duper.  Their products really are top notch.) and has added features (spinner to tell you the number of chips you've won, cue cards to give direction for questions to ask, etc.) to the game which are nice. I especially love that the pictures are real photos and not cartoon drawings.  Sometimes you can't even tell what those drawings  are!
Check out Super Duper's website.  Tons of great stuff there.  :-)

You get to try the neatest games & curriculum!

Could it be...Eloise? Or as some pronounce- "Elowaaz". Lol. Remember that?

Yep, Elowaaz. Lol!

We adore Eloise!
When my daughter was 4 years old "Plain Old Kristi" tagged her with the nick name Eloise, because she looked just like her in her school uniform with her belly poked out and spraggly blond hair. Is spraggly a word? LOL
Anywho, our favorite is Christmas book.
I'm already itching for cooler weather and spicy smells.
