Peaceable Kingdom isn’t just known for their games, they have books, stickers, greeting cards and playing cards. However, it’s their cooperative games that I truly adore and use with my students. I recently was introduced to the company, at the Toy Fair this past February. They offer games for children of all ages. I, of course, gravitated towards the early childhood games for children 3-5 years of age. I had a chance to play a few of their most popular games, which they had displayed at the Toy Fair. As a result of my positive experience, I purchased a couple of their games to play with my students.
Their cooperative games are the biggest factor that sets this company’s games apart from their competition. It’s always great for children to experience competition and understand how to deal with their feelings when they are not the winner of a game, but it’s just as important for children to learn cooperative play as well. Peaceable Kingdom’s cooperative games focus on teaching children how to work and play together. It’s all about team work and working together to reach the common goal of winning the game. With their cooperative games, either everyone wins or everyone looses. Peaceable Kingdom’s website states, “They learn to share, make decisions together, and trust one another. Cooperative games encourage inclusion and build confidence.” I am currently playing the Hoot Owl Hoot game with my students, which definitely emphasizes the children working together. The game has been a hit and I’m ready to try even more from this company.
