Game of The Week; Toot & Otto
Our game for this week is Toot & Otto
. It is a great game for all the preschoolers in your life.
Children take on the personality of two lovable pups, Toot and Otto. Each player starts off with 12 letter tiles: 6 T's and 6 O's. By dropping these tiles down the chutes on the vertical board, they begin their quest to spell their pups names. Toot or Otto can be spelled from left to right, up or down, and even diagonally!
What's so great about our game of the week you may ask... It brings a new twist to the classic game Connect Four, your children can play competitively or cooperatively, it encourages critical thinking, and it is great for travel! Toot & Otto
is recommended for younger players, ages 4-7, but parents and grandparents will have a great time playing too!
Come in and give it a try with one of our Team Members and receive 10% off the purchase price the week of February 25-March 3rd!
