Chimp and Zee Heads in the Sand Board Game Review

I have been so impressed with the quality of Chimp and Zee preschool age board games by Pressman Toy. One of my flaws as a mom is my competitive nature….I have tried in the past to teach my 3, 4 and 5 year old children to play other board games and would get so frustrated when they didn’t catch on that I swore not to play games with them again until high school. Then….I discovered Chimp and Zee board games by Pressman. The games are simple to teach and learn, fun and educational. Today, we played Chimp and Zee “Heads in the Sand” by Pressman Toy and it was a blast. This board game incorporates fun and learning with “Heads in the Sand” and targets colors, comparison, interaction, memory and observation. It was simple enough that my three year old picked up the rules easily but challenging enough that my five year old wanted to keep playing. We played three games together as a family and then took a break for lunch. As I was cleaning up, I looked over at the table and my four year old daughter had set the game back up and was playing with her dolls as her “competitors”….cute!

We also played Chimp and Zee “Going on Vacation. This board game is a bit more challenging and just as much fun. The object of the game is to collect all the items on your list in your suitcase so that you are ready to go on vacation. It teaches collecting, co-ordination, imagination, memory and observation. My kids loved this game and I liked that this required use of several skills.

Chimp and Zee board games by Pressman Toy have sturdy cardboard pieces, easy to set up boards and are bright and colorful to keep young children engaged. The pace of the game is another great feature….the instructions state that games can be played in ten minutes. Since my three little ones are smaller it takes us about 15-20 minutes per game but still they have never gotten restless or bored.

I have reviewed three Chimp and Zee board games and enjoyed everyone with my family. You can’t go wrong with your favorite choice between Chimp and Zee “Shopping Cart Dash”,  “Heads in the Sand” and “Going on Vacation.”

Purchase any of these or other fine Pressman games.
