I’ve always heard that you should never partner with advertisers who make a product you and your family wouldn’t personally use. That’s the #1 reason that I refuse to work with the automatic robot head massager they sell in the Sky Mall catalog.
The concept is simple and awesome. Inside a tube of tiny colorful beads are hidden tons of small VeggieTales toys. Everything from the slushy cup and Viking helmet to Bob the Tomato and Madame Blueberry are in there. The object is to go on a scavenger hunt and check off which ones you see. Sounds easy, right? That’s what I thought too, until we started passing around this game at our dinner table. It’s easy to find Larry, he’s a big green cucumber. But the water buffalo? That thing is elusive! And to this day, after weeks of playing, I have still not found the penny.
My family has loved this game and it’s provided a fun alternative to video games and iPhones on long road trips. My kids zone out if there’s anything electric going on and this game has provided some great family moments.
Find It Games has been an awesome sponsor and their game “Oh, Really!” is a blast too. I don’t play a ton of board games but this one is fun. We played it a few nights ago and it was funny to see what it revealed about what each member of our family really thought about certain ideas.
Check out both games at their site. But please know, you will never find that penny. That thing makes the water buffalo look like a cakewalk.
I’ve got 2 copies of the Find It VeggieTales to give away. Just comment by Monday, April 4 with an answer to this question to enter:
What’s your favorite VeggieTales moment?
