It's always fun to find a game that is entertaining and educational. Puppy Up from Patch Products is a board game that helps kids learn how to count, add, subtract, and practice other basic math skills. It also teaches basic concepts of physics with the cute puppy scale. My 2 and 4 year old kids have a lot of fun playing this game, and mom and dad can join in too!
The Puppy Up game is played by choosing the right number of puppies to match the number on the card you draw. The player must place the number figure on one side of the scale and balance the correct number of puppies on the other side of the scale to see if they counted correctly. The correct number of puppies will perfectly balance the scale.
This fun counting game encourages STEM skills with multiple levels of play: number recognition, counting and addition. The Puppy Up board game includes 30 2-sided cards, 19 puppies, 10 numbers, a puppy scale, and rule book. This game is played with physics and gravity, so no batteries are required.
My kids enjoy playing with the puppy figures, picking out numbers, and balancing them on the scale with the puppies. If they miscounted the puppies and place 4 puppies on the scale with the 3 number as the counterbalance, the scale will be off. Remove a puppy for a total of 3 puppies on the scale and the scale balances with the number 3 counterbalance! Puppy Up is a super fun game to teach kids cause and effect and give them a tangible visual for teaching them how to count. Puppy Up is a perfect game for preschool and homeschooling to make learning numbers fun! When you are done with the puppies you can also weigh other toys to find ones that weigh the same and balance each other. Get this Puppy Up game for your own kids, a super fun toy for educational, interactive play.
