Toy Review:    Spelling Bee Bingo

Related Links
 

Spelling can involve lots of practice at home, but when this practice takes the form of a game instead of homework, kids don't mind at all. This game combines the proven fun of BINGO with letter and word recognition learning. Two levels of game-play are possible -- the easiest level plays like a game of BINGO except that the cards feature two words, such as cat and tire. An adorable cartoon illustrates both words at once (in our example, a cat is perched on a tire swing). A plastic tub shaped like a bumble bee holds the plastic letters. Children place transparent coins on the letters that are called, and whoever spells a word first gets to shout "BINGO". The second level features slightly more difficult spelling words and involves working with a deck of word cards. 

The game is simple, and the concept is nothing ground-breaking, but Spelling Bee Bingo is fun and worth every penny of its $10 US suggested retail price. 

Pros:
  • Easy to follow game rules.
  • Two levels of game-play to accommodate growing skills.

 

Cons:
  • The BINGO cards are not laminated, so the game may easily become worn.
