I owe a HUGE thank you to some people that I don’t even know. You see on Saturday and Sunday mornings, DD seems to get up before the bread man opens his eyes. So what do you do with a 2 year old that is ready for the day at 5 in the morning and her parents just want at least 1/2 an hour more in bed? You let her play with your iPhone! Yes, terrible as it might sound, we let our little girl spend a few minutes of quite time in our bed at 5am and let her watch You Tube. For 4:31 seconds at a time my husband and I are able to get a bit of shut eye while she is kept entertained.
Anyone want to guess what she’s watching? Toopy and Binoo, a French Canadian show (also in English), that is about a rat and his mute cat friend. This is a super clever show that every child I know is in love with. I haven’t seen anything related to Toopy and Binoo in the stores (thank goodness, because I know DD would want us to purchase everything about them).
We are trying to incorporate family game nights in our home, so when Hasbro contacted me about trying out a number of age appropriate (not MY age – my daughters age) games, I thought it was a great idea. To my surprise one of the games was a Toopy and Binoo matching game. I truly did not know that it was coming until I opened the box. I was so excited to show DD her new game.
Together we played memory, but did have to make a few modifications. For example, the game comes with 72 different pieces, that is A LOT of matching, so we broke it down into 3’s. There are 3 different types of matches to be made with different background colours, so we just use one section at a time. We also just leave all the memory pieces flipped up right and have fun finding the matching pieces. As she gets older we can make the game a little harder, but for now we enjoy playing the easy version. We don’t play all the time, but we can get some quite playing time together, this is a great game.
DD is constantly asking for Toopy and Binoo on the laptop or the iPhone, these characters must have some sort of magical touch with anyone 6 and under because they all seem to be enthralled with them. I was very surprised to see some Toopy and Binoo characters on this type of game. Thank you Hasbro for recognizing this great Canadian show.
