20 Questions Electronic Game Keeps ME Guessing

How Does it Do That?

Did you ever have someone hand you a toy for your kids and you try it out and you think,

"I'm not giving this to them!"

Yea, that's what happend with the 20Q Artificial Intelligence Game that my friend Leticia handed me a few weeks ago.

Here's how it works.

Think of something that is an animal, vegetable, or mineral.

Then, let the 20Q start guessing.

You press yes, no, sometimes or rarely for the answer.

It somehowbymagicelves guesses your thing every. single. time!

For my kids they needed some help answering the questions but for the most part they could do it all themselves and it occupied them for an entire 3-hour car ride

Here's a short list of some of the things our 20Q has guessed correctly:

  • Dog
  • Whale
  • Ruby
  • Snot

That last one had be really believing in magic.

20Q is available in all sorts of colors and themes including this 20Q Harry Potter version!

You can get more information on the 20Q Facebook page.

National Geographic Weird but True app

Did you know that honey does not spoil?

Me neither. That fact would have come in handy last year when my huge Costco-sized container of honey crystalized and I was trying to decide if I should toss all $14 of it.

It took National Geographic to design an app that my kid is hooked on to educate me about the shelf-life of honey.

The Weird but True app give you an interesting fact with every swipe or shake.

Inspired by the National Geographic book series of the same name, Weird but True has some of the strangest facts that can be ranked with your vote on the weird-o-meter.

 Here is what Ellie thought:

 

 

The Weird but True app is available for iPhone and iPad on iTunes.

Also, be sure to check out the Weird but True Collectionon Amazon.

Disclosure: I received the app for free but all experiences and opinions are my own. This post was neither reviewed nor approved prior to being published. Some links are affiliate links.

Who is the MasterMind in your Family?

Photobucket

MasterMind is one of those games that kept my brother and I entertained as we were visiting my grandparents in Vermont. If we weren't skiing, or hiking, we were playing MasterMind.

MasterMind Requires Problem Solving Skills

If you have never played before, the object of the game is to break the color code.The Codebreaker has about 20 chances to figure it out using clues given by the Codemaker. What I realize, having young kids, is that problem solving skills take some time to develop. How cool that Pressman Toys realized this too and developed a new, verticle version of MasterMind for younger kids that use pictures instead of just colors.

Vertical MasterMind for Kids

What better way to learn about codes and using clues to problem solve than with a game! Animal MasterMind Towers challenges kids to guess the order in which their opponent has place animal tiles. The Twofer have really enjoyed playing this together and it's so cute to hear them saying, "Is your elephant above your sheep?". Just a fun twist on a classic game.

MasterMind Towers also come in SpongeBob SquarePants, Disney Fairies, and Looney Toons characters as well!.  For more information check out the MasterMind website and the MasterMind Facebook page.
