Finding toys and games to engage little ones with is something I find to be a lot of fun. I enjoy watching as little minds work and seeing their eyes light up as they play and learn through their play. And like many parents, when it comes to some of those first games that our little ones like to play, I have found the game of peek-a-boo to be on the top of my list. So when we were sent Elmo’s World Hide & Seek to review, I was curious to see how this game can grow with baby and also how my preschooler liked playing with it.
With this game, you can begin engaging babies as young as 6 months old by simply playing a game of peek-a-boo with Elmo and baby. You can do this by hiding the Elmo that is included under a blanket, reinforcing the notion that babies learn from peek-a-boo, learning that even though they can not see something that it is not gone. From there, as baby grows you can take that game of peek-a-boo into a new game of hide and seek where you can hide Elmo in nearby places for baby to find him. They do this by listening for Elmo’s voice, and learning that as he is easier to hear they are closer to finding him!
Then for preschoolers, they can continue to enjoy playing with Elmo’s World Hide & Seek by using the Elmo included along with the cards in the box to play along with by following the clues and counting! Where they can count to ten before going to find him and follow the clues on the cards to where he is. Making the choice to add Elmo’s World Hide & Seek to your babies playtime, a choice that both you and baby can enjoy together! And to help with bringing that fun home for you and your baby, the wonderful people from Identity Games would like to give one of my amazing readers their own Elmo’s World Hide & Seek.
