GIVEAWAY #4: AWARD-WINNING CHILDREN’S GAME

coo coo the clown balancing game

Up the excitement in your home with this suspenseful balancing act game from Blue Orange Games. CooCoo the Clown is an all-wood balancing game that has received numerous awards (Dr. Toy, Parent’s Magazine, Oppenheim Toy Portfolio) for its educational and entertainment value. It’s simple, yet challenging and fun for all ages… seriously. (My husband and I are hooked.)

WHY WE LOVE IT

Ryan and I are always drawn to simple wooden things for our children— where Jackson and Clare can focus on their creative possibilities, rather than the actualities. CooCoo the Clown is one of those toys. They learn hands-on the concept of gravity and balance. This game can be played solo or with a handful of friends. Jackson and Clare enjoy when CooCoo falls over and the pieces fly everywhere. For a few days, we thought it was impossible to “beat the clown,” but eventually my genius husband figured it out. Yet it isn’t easy! Watch the video below to see Jackson and Ryan playing CooCoo the Clown.
