When I was in college I had a roommate who would eat supper in front of the TV every night, watching her game shows. Once in a while I would sit and watch them with her and we would try to guess the answers to the trivia questions to see if we were as smart as the people on TV. It sounds silly, but it was actually really fun! Well, today I want to tell you about an educational toy/tool that my family has been using and it turns all our school subjects into our very own game show! (And we use it at chore time too! More about that in a bit!)
Eggspert: Fun Learning Tool!
Eggspert is from a company called Educational Insights and there are 2 ways to play. One way is to hand each child a buzzer (the color corresponds to the colors of the eggs on the main game piece). You ask a question and the first person to guess the answer hits their buzzer. Their egg lights up and they have a certain amount of time (preset by you) to give the answer.
The second way is called “Scrambled Eggs.” The parent clicks their buzzer and all the Eggspert eggs light up. They all start beeping and flashing until the unit finally selects just one egg. The person who is assigned that color has a pre-set amount of time to answer the question.
It's very, very simple and it's very cool. I made a video to show you all about it. The video is a bit long. I promise Eggspert really isn't very complicated! But in this video I show you absolutely every detail of how to use it. Everything from “how to plug it in and turn it on” to how to use it for chores. (Watch the video for that… it's near the end! If you're reading this in your email or an RSS reader you may have to click through to the blog to see the video.)
This is the single-most-used-learning-tool in our house after pencils and paper! We love it! Click here to get your own Eggspert. They have a 365-day hassle free return policy, so if you change your mind you can always return it. But I don't think you'll change your mind. (When you order, don't forget to purchase the adapter separately if you hate batteries as much as I do!)
