One issue we have come across while playing games, especially with our younger kids, is that no one likes to lose the game. It makes them feel bad, and sometimes even results in a full-blown temper tantrum. This takes the fun out of what should be a pleasant experience.
That's why I really love the products from Peaceable Kingdom. This awesome company creates a large line of games, geared towards varying age groups, that are cooperative rather than competitive. That's right...Everybody wins! This is such an awesome concept, as it will not only help build family bonds but also help little ones have high self-esteem and a strong sense of teamwork.
What is a Cooperative Game?
A cooperative game is a game where all players play together against a common obstacle, not against each other. In a cooperative game no one feels left out and everyone has fun! Peaceable Kingdom’s cooperative board games use familiar game mechanisms – spinning a spinner, matching cards, moving a token, strategizing a win! The difference is that players play together. Playing together helps kids in many ways – they experience shared decision-making, they build self-esteem, they learn to share, to feel compassion, and to work as a team. Playing cooperative games teaches kids to cooperate.
Peaceable Kingdom also offers a variety of colorful and fun sticker and activity books for little ones to explore. There are themes for both boys and girls, as well as some that are truly gender neutral, such as Funny Food, Scratch N' Sniff, and Color Me sticker packs! How cool is that?! (My little ones adore stickers, so the selection at Peaceable Kingdom is just perfect for our family or 2 boys and a girl!)
Recently, the awesome folks at Peaceable Kingdom sent me both a board game and a sticker activity book to review. I'd love to tell you more about them!
Princess Sticker Activity Book :
The Princess Sticker Activity Book reminded me of a lot of the books I had when I was growing up. There are several interactive pages where you can apply the 75 stickers. These pages are laminated, so you can easily remove and re-stick the stickers somewhere else.
Not only does this book feature beautiful princesses, there are also mischievous fairies and exotic mermaids thrown into the mix for added imaginative play. The colors and characters are bright, vibrant, and definitely appealing to little ones.
Take a look:
