Move & Groove by ThinkFun Review



One thing that we love in our home is games.  I have a new game to tell you about, Move & Groove by ThinkFun intended for children 18 months and up.  This game can be played with two or more players.  This game includes one large washable plush cube with storage pocket for cards and 48 dance cards, 8 in each category.

Our Game

Move & Groove is a dance game for toddlers and older that gets them up and moving and ready to learn.  You can watch your child boogie down.  They are not only moving but building gross motor skills, balance and coordination as well.  The game is simple.  Toss the plush cube, choose one of the 48 matching cards and do the move on the card.  Moves include playing an air guitar, shaking your shoulders, dancing the funky children.  This is a fun way to learn colors, recognize words and images, follow instructions and build confidence as well as creativity and spend time together as a family.

Players can use their imagination.  And not only toddlers will enjoy it.  We have played this game several times as a family and everyone loves it.  It has been a great way to have fun and connect together as a family.

This shows an example of a card from each category.

 The plush cube has a storage pocket to hold the cards.

The categories include Let's Pretend (yellow), Movement (green), Body Parts (gray), Silliness (orange), Workout (purple) and Classics (blue).  And an example of each category card is Fly like a plane, March in a circle, Tap your feet, Play the air guitar, Run in place, and Disco.  One of my favorites is the blue category.  I love seeing and teaching my kids to do classic dance moves!

So if you love games, moving and having fun Move & Groove is a great game addition.  I love that the age range starts at 18 months and up.  Having so many children with a large age range it can be difficult sometimes to find games that E (2 years old) and A (10 years old) both can play and enjoy.  This is one of them.

Disclosure: I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
