Blue Orange Games - Dr. Eureka and Fast Flip

As a mother of five children, and all of them home in the summer, I look for ways to keep them entertained and unplugged. There are thousands of games out on the market, some that teach, others that are just for plain fun, and others that keep kids active. I like to keep a mixture of games on hand for them, but with the summer, I like to use the educational ones that challenge them and get them to think more.

Blue Orange Games is an industry leader of games like this. They offer a huge variety of games for all members of the family, big or small, and I have had the pleasure of trying some of them in the past, which I am sure you have read. I was offered the opportunity to take a look at two other new additions to the Blue Orange family of games.

Dr. Eureka is a game for every little scientist at heart. This happens to be my 6 year old's favorite game that we have. This game challenges your child with patterns. You pick a card, and you have to try to get the patterns using test tubes. You can play single player or with other players. I will say, this game was a lot of fun for me to play as an adult and also game me a little challenge. This game is a lot of fun that you can play for hours. This is recommended for ages 8 and up and can have 1-4 players. My 6 year old understood the concept and did well, but with the little marbles, adult supervision should always be used with this game.

  • Fine motor skills
  • Visual perception
  • Focus and attention
  • Processing speed
  • 12 Test Tubes
  • 24 Colorful Balls (8 Red, 8 Purple, 8 Green)
  • 54 Challenge Cards
  • Illustrated Rules

Fast Flip  This fun game can be played in a couple of different ways. You can use the tokens with the cards or just the cards. This was a great game for my 6 year old to learn. He really loved the card aspect of it. Basically, you flip the card and figure out what fruit is the number. This really helped him with counting and mastering. With the tokens, its the same idea, only you can steal another players tokens. He wasn't too keen on this aspect of the game, but with the older kids, they seemed to love it and got very competitive. This game is recommended for ages 7 and up and can have 2-8 players. If your child is younger like mine, it doesn't take long for them to grasp the concept of the game.

12" Green Earth Frying Pan by Ozeri

When it comes to cooking, I want to cook with something that is going to distribute the heat evenly to cook my food the best that I can. Unfortunately, with a lot of pans out there, it can be hard to find a good quality one to offer that. I have purchased many pans only to be left with cooking issues and frustration.

Kindergarten Cop 2, out on DVD, Digital HD and On Demand on May 17

Do you all remember the fantastic movie "Kindergarten Cop"? I know I do. It was one of my favorite movies to watch and my kids love it as well. It was fun for all ages and a wonderful family movie to watch. It offered so many laughs, that it was one of those movies that you could watch over and over. When I heard the sequel to this movie was going to be released, I was beyond excited. After checking out the trailer for this, I feel this is going to be a lot better than the first with more laughs. Dolph Lundgren and Billy Bellamy star in the soon to be released film. I feel they are a perfect fit for the cast of this. Feel free to check out the trailer:
