Educational Insights Valentine's Day #Giveaway



Looking for something better than candy to give to your children this Valentine's Day?  Educational Insights has tons of fun games and toys to keep them entertained.  Here are a few of our top picks.




Players take turns playing one of their game pieces. Connect your game piece to your previous one. If you can't move, you are out of the game. Last player to play a legal move is the winner. For 2 to 4 players. Ages 8+. Includes 88 Playing pieces (4 colors, 22 of each color), and game board 12" x 12".

My Thoughts

This is a really fun game and a great way for kids to learn strategy.  Simply set up each colored shark in the starting position. Every move, you'll need to connect another game piece to your color, but it can't be in the direction of where another shark is pointing. Once you can't make another move, you're out of the game.  This game is fast-paced and quick and easy to set up. It's perfect for kids eight and up and you can play with up to four players. 




Blurt! Word race game by Educational Insights, This world-famous word game that has sold over 1,000,000 copies. After being sold by the original publisher, Blurt. has been off the market for several years. Now it's back and better than ever with a cool new look and the classic game play that made it a platinum best seller. Think fast. What word means '' a partially dried grape'' ? Be the first to say '' raisin,'' and you're on your way to winning this riotous game of rapid word recall. Players take turns reading clues aloud, competing to blurt out the correct answer first and move ahead on the board. The first person or team to circle the board wins. Sounds simple, right? But as the race for the right word heats up, and the blurting gets boisterous, it's easy to get tongue-tied. Blurt is a great vocabulary builder for kids, a hilarious addition to adult parties, and a must for family game night for 3 to 12 players.   

My Thoughts


Blurt comes with the playing board, box of questions, and several colored game tokens. You have three players or up to twelve players.  The object of the game is to be the first to move your token all the way around the board. You achieve this by guessing the correct word on the cards. You are given a clue to what the word is, and then you get to "blurt" out whatever pops into your head. The first person to guess the correct word will win the points and get to move their token. I was surprised at how many my kids knew. And even when they guessed wrong it was hilarious to hear some of the things they came up with. By the end of the game, they had learned at least twenty new words and we all laughed so hard our sides hurt. Its a great way to have fun and still learn something.  This is an excellent games for kids and adults alike and would make an excellent gift.




Make learning fun with Educational Insights. Triple-rhyming family-friendly card game. For 3 or more players aged 10 to adult. Includes 600 questions and 2 levels. Race to shout 3 correct rhyming responses. Fun for the whole family, includes cards.

My Thoughts

Rhyme Out is a fun rhyming game suitable for kids and adults alike. There are 600 different questions which gives you thousands of ways to makes rhymes. How it works is that each card will give you clues to the rhyming words they're looking for. For example, a bird that lives in a pond, a deer with antlers, and a vehicle that hauls things. All three answers need to rhyme, so the answers are duck, buck, and truck. 

This fun game is a great way for kids to grow their vocabulary.  It's a simple game without any complicated directions, and even the package doesn't take up much space. Anyone who enjoys a good word game is going to love this.
