Favourite Toy: Zingo!

Zingo was the first real board-game, so to speak, that we played at home on a regular basis.  The concept is simple — it’s “Bingo” but using pictures and words.  What I like about it is that it’s not only great for teaching visual recognition and learning first basic words but that it helps to plant the seeds for learning how to “take turns”, “help each other out”, and for one of my daughters, perfect the fine art of “cheating.”  It’s a game that young kids like and one that an adult won’t mind playing as well.  Available on Amazon (US and Europe ).
