A completely new, patent-pending "two-in-one" board game, SOUND IT! FOUND IT! is both a guessing game AND a hidden-object game based on silly sounds other players make. With 96 cards and eight giant-scene boards, it's perfect for today's kids, combining visual fun with the unique twist of guessing sounds to offer hours of laugh-out-loud fun. Launch date: February 2012. Awards: 2013 TDmonthly Seal of Approval — "What a cool game! If your kids like acting out (not acting up), this game is made for them. I had fun playing with Alex and her friend Lily...Alex and Lily are both tweens, but even kids a few years younger or older would love this game. Being silly is the only pre-requisite." - A review by Mike on the blog Just Find it 4 U.
The fun of matching and the challenge of puzzles. There are puzzles and there are memory games...but only Puzzle Match™ combines these two timeless play patterns in one unique, patent-pending game designed for kids ages 3 to 6. Puzzle Match offers a unique challenge unlike any traditional memory game: Rather than searching for two identical images, kids have to find two halves of a whole image, such as the bottom and top of a seahorse. Once the interlocking pieces are found, they can be assembled into a giant, beautifully illustrated scene. Launch date: May 2012.
Different from traditional memory games in which two identical cards are matched, Puzzle Match has kids search and match three puzzle piece parts of one image to complete the match. For example, players search for puzzle pieces of the head, body and claws of a parrot to make the match. As an added value, once kids finish the memory game and match the interlocking pieces, the pieces can be assembled into a giant, beautifully illustrated scene. "Unlike traditional memory games in which two identical cards must be found for the match, Puzzle Match - The Pet Shop has players searching and matching three different parts of one full picture to make the match," Ari Weinstock, CEO of Wowopolis, told TDmonthly.

Described as a combination of Where’s Waldo? and Charades with sounds, this patent-pending easy-to-learn and easy-to play game was created specifically for the preschool set. A player chooses a picture card and gets the others to guess what’s on the card by imitating the sound it makes. Choo-Choo! Beep Beep! Gobble Gobble! Those are just the easy ones … but guessing the sound is only half the fun. Once the sound is identified (e.g. Choo Choo for the train), players race to find the object that makes it amid one of six preschool-friendly illustrated scenes such including Around the Farm, Costume Party, A Day at the Zoo and Out on the Street, each filled with action and surprises.
Featuring 72 cards and six giant-scene boards, each drawn in a whimsical, original style, Sound It! Found It! Junior combines visual hilarity with the unique twist of guessing sounds, offering hours of laugh-out-loud fun. No reading required.
