The game gets kids moving, thinking, listening and learning. Designed for preschoolers, the game promotes positive social and developmental skills in addition to physical activity. The game features an electronic hand-held tagger named Gerry Giraffe and his four fist-sized friends (a monkey, parrot, tiger and elephant). The giraffe calls out which animals kids should run to and tag and tracks the amount of time taken to complete each course. In team mode, kids work cooperatively to achieve their fastest time. Launch date: Fall 2008.
— “Animal Scramble requires physical exertion through running, bending, reaching and tagging movements that aid in the development of large and small muscle groups while improving coordination and motor skills,” Kim Bratcher of Wild Planet Toys told TDmonthly. “The sharing, listening and turn-taking aspects of the game practice positive social behaviors.”
