Parents and children can enjoy this classic memory game together while learning new ways to be an earth-friendly inhabitant of Mother Earth. I Cherish Planet Earth is all about appreciating and preserving nature and our planet. It is a celebration of Earth's life and beauty and a call to be active in creating a sustainable future for all. It includes a 32-page, full-color story book, 48 game pieces, and a cotton storage pouch. The game is made in the USA with recycled paper and vegetable inks. Launch date: 2009.

— “I Cherish Planet Earth” earned praise from Slee of Paisley and Pretties for presenting its eco-friendly message in an affirmative way as opposed to the scar-tactics used by other environmental products. Of the messages in the book and game, not only do they help children to internalize a deeper sense of connectedness to the planet, but they also encourage meaningful thought and positive ecological action.
— Jeralee of Babes and Kids Review found the product to be even greener than advertised because it includes not only a memory game, but suggestions for several other games that can be played with the kit. Her daughters eagerly embraced these alternate games, even more so than the basic memory game. Jeralee also loved the watercolor illustrations, although their complexity and muted colors made the matching game difficult for her young daughter.

Kids can get hopping clean with this 6” x 8-3/4” terrycloth puppet bath mitt. The mitt comes in two sizes: one for adult hands and one for kids to make bath-time extra fun. Other Challenge & Fun Furnis Puppets include the duck, the elephant, the horse and the bear.
— "We just recently got hand puppets/bath mitts from Challenge & Fun. … They have a lot of organic and basic stuff. We did really well with the bath mitts," said Sarah Green, manager of Kids At Heart in Portland, Ore., in spring 2007.
— Kids at Heart sells three to four wash cloth puppets per week, which accounts for 40 percent of their bath-toy sales, added Green.
— "The design is quite fun and the quality of the cotton is thicker than most on the market, so it has a nicer feel to it," said Rob Wilson, director of marketing for Challenge & Fun. He added that the cotton is OKO-TEX-certified, which means it's "extremely clean" and "the next best thing to organic."
