SimplyFun, LLC offers a variety of unique, fun, engaging, and educational board games. Since I am a big fan of learning through play I was definitely intrigued to see all they have to offer! They offer games from toddlers to teens that are known to help them learn various concepts, build specific skills as well as help with science, math, geography, language, and more! Family game night fun while building learning skills! They have more than 90 award-winning family board games!
So, you may be wondering – why the bunny slippers and popcorn? What does that have to do with games? I did, too, at first! Then I learned SimplyFun now offers online Laugh & Learn virtual parties! SimplyFun is a quickly growing direct sales company that has been offering in-home Laugh & Learn parties through their team of consultants (called “Playologists”), but now they have made it even easier to enjoy a Laugh & Learn party by offering them online! So you can put on your bunny slippers, pop some popcorn, and learn more about SimplyFun through a Virtual Laugh & Learn party!
The game we received for review is Kilter, which has won many awards including an Oppenheim Award. It is recommended for ages 8+ and is a great game for learning about levers, practicing patience, using strategy, and more. You can play with up to 4 people. The object of the game is to use all of your cubes. You must always place cubes on an elevated side. Your turn ends when that side goes down, you knock down any cubes, or you choose to end your turn after placing at least one of your cubes. Any cubes that fall off of the seesaw during your turn gets added to your pile!
Although it is recommended for 8 and up, we played Kilter as a family and allowed our 5 and 7 year olds to play as individual players, so we have 4 total players. It was a little tricky for them to understand at first, but the more we play, the more they start to “put on their thinking caps” and incorporate better strategy. I’m surprised how quickly they caught on. We took it over to Grandma’s so she could play, too! I love how Kilter makes us think and strategize. You have to consider a lot of different factors before placing your cube. It really is a great lesson to learn through playing a game! Our kids now have a better understanding of how levers work, weight distribution, and predicting an outcome just to name a few! Plus, we all have FUN!
Not only does SimplyFun offer great games with educational value, fun virtual or in-home Laugh & Learn parties, but they also offer a business opportunity! Offering virtual Laugh & Learn parties has made it even easier for Playologists to make an income – and have fun, too! Playologists have the opportunity to help families find the right games to fit their family’s needs at that time. Becoming a Playologist can be a great opportunity for homeschoolers and fund raising options for school!
