Peaceable Kingdom - Feed the Woozle Cooperative Game Review

Are you looking for a fun game to play with your preschooler, a game that is fun and the whole family can join in on the fun? Well I have a suggestion for you all. Games from Peaceable Kingdom, here is a little information about Peaceable Kingdom from the Website.

Peaceable Kingdom was founded in 1983 with a single product – a poster featuring the beloved art from the classic children’s book Goodnight Moon. Twenty-eight years and more than 5,000 items later, the company has grown to be a leader in juvenile stickers, greeting cards, and games.

I was sent a Feed the Woozle game for review from Peaceable Kingdom.  This is an award-winning game, this received The Parent’s Choice Award, Silver Honor. Peaceable Kingdom recently released three new cooperative games for preschoolers and two  cooperative games for kids.

Well what is a cooperative game?  It’s a game where everyone plays together, no one is left out, and everyone has fun! Unlike a traditional game where there is one winner and one (or many) losers, in a cooperative game the players work as a team against a common obstacle, not against each other. Cooperative games emphasize play, not competition. Kids learn to work and play together in respectful and compassionate ways. They learn to share, make decisions together, and trust one another. Cooperative games encourage inclusion and build confidence. Most importantly, the kids play because it’s fun!

I love the idea of cooperative games, this teaches children to have fun together and not to focus in on “beating” the other players. The idea of games is to have fun right? With cooperatives games you have fun together, and are not concerned with who wins. It is a nice concept.  This game is made for preschoolers, designed for ages 3-6 and can have up to 5 players. But anyone can play this simple but fun game.  There is no reading required, (except of course the easy instructions.)

The game is meant to be played on levels, for age ranges, the higher the level the more tricky the game. All levels are about feeding that crazy Woozle, and he does eat some odd things, bathwater soda anyone, or who would like some sand pizza?  Level 1. To play on Level 1 you roll the die, put that number of snacks on the spoon and walk to feed the Woozle. Then you feed the Woozle the snacks and when he is fully fed and the snacks are gone you win yay!

My daughter and I played the higher 2 and 3 levels. With level 2 you have to so some crazy and funny tasks while bringing the Woozle its food. Walking backwards, doing a bunny hot (not this was hard, we kept dropping the “food”) and do a Hula dance among others.  And with level three you do everything that is on level one, but you do it blindfolded! And it is silly and fun.

My daughter has fun with the game and cannot wait to show her little cousin. She is two, and I am sure she will love the game on level one. I will love that there will be no crying, or pouting because someone did not win. With this game you can just have fun, and play everything you could want from a great game. I would recommend this game for families with young children, your kids will love it and I am sure you will too. The game retails for $19.99

This looks like a really fun game for kids. I have never heard of it before. I like that you can play up to 5 players.
