When ThinkFun sent me their Zingo! Word Builder game, I was so happy since it's perfect for my 5 year old daughter.
The Zingo!® Word Builder is for children ages 5 and up, Grades K – 2nd. It's for 2 to 6 players and has an MSRP of $19.99.
Here is a little something about the Zingo! Word Builder.
Build early reading skills three letters at a time, nurturing vocabulary and spelling
Zingo! Word Builder boosts confidence in early readers, guiding them to form three letter words in the spirit of the ever-popular Zingo! Players slide the Zinger to reveal letters and place matches on their cards to build simple words like cat, dog and jar. Beginner and Advanced levels of play appeal to beginning and more established readers.
The contents were:
- 1 Zingo! Zinger with Easy Cleanup!
- 72 Letter Tiles
- 6 Double-sided Zingo! Cards
It was very easy to set-up since the tiles are already inside the Zingo! Zinger (the red one in the picture). The Double-sided Zingo! Cards has 2 levels. One side is the beginner level where there is only 1 missing letter to form a word and the other side is the advanced level (pictured above) which has 2 missing letters to form a word.
Pictured above is a simple diagram on how to play the Zingo! Word Builder.
In this round, my 5 year old daughter won. She formed her own words and I was happy that she practiced her spelling as well as her vocabulary. I helped my 3 year old form her words and she got 2nd place. Guess who got 3rd place? ME. LOL. :)
I like that my daughters love the Zingo! Word Builder. It is specially helpful for my 5 year old daughter who is just starting to read and spell.
