Sometimes a company will just nail my hopes and dreams for the kind of play environment I want to create for Darah. Check out this introduction to Peaceable Kingdom: “Welcome to the kingdom—Peaceable Kingdom! Where dinosaurs roam and a mermaid princess swims, where a child can host a fairy tea party or sail the open seas on a pirate ship. A place of imagination and exploration and fun! Since 1983, Peaceable Kingdom has created fresh, fun products for kids that educate, inspire and tickle funny bones. Connect with the kids in your life with Peaceable Kingdom.
YES! When I’m looking for products for Darah, I’m looking for opportunities to create those worlds of pure imagination. I want the mermaids and the pirates to be welcomed guests at Darah’s tea parties. I hope to create a space for her in our home where she can dream up anything she wants!
Peaceable Kingdom totally gets that desire, and they have created toys and games that help a child create delightful worlds in which to play. Today I’m highlighting a game that they have, and that is absolutely perfect for Darah to get started with right away. It’s the Animal Alphabet Match Up Game, and it is adorable! The cards are all a very sturdy cardboard, which makes it ideal for little ones who tend to bend cards easily. Right now we are playing by turning all the cards face-up and then going on a hunt to find pairs of animals. We can do the same thing with letters. When Darah gets a bit older, we can play the more traditional “memory” game by turning them face-down and then hunting for pairs. I LOVE that version of the game, so I’m really looking forward to teaching it to her! Currently, this game will hold D’s attention for about 10 minutes, which is a long time! She gets SO excited when she finds a match!
Peaceable Kingdom offers an excellent assortment of match-up games, card games for children, board games and even cooperative games. Poke around their shop, and I think you’ll be really impressed with the quality products that are offered for reasonable prices. The game we reviewed retails for $9.99, which I think is more than fair, especially for the quality.
