Hoyle Kids Cards - Card Games Review


I'm a big proponent for games.  Whether it be a family game night or a two friends playing together, I feel games promote a lot of life skills.  Hoyle Kids Games are a good fit for young children.  All of Hoyle’s card games are designed to be both fun and educational. Each game teaches a different set of practical skills such as addition and subtraction, sequence building and numeral identification, while promoting emotional intelligence, self-awareness and empathy.

Two newer games from Hoyle Kids Games is Monkey, May I? and Super Me!, both of which I had the opportunity to review.  Both are appropriate for kids ages 4 to 6.

The Monkey, May I? card game helps reinforce your children's social skills like making good choices, self awareness and self control.  Children flip over an Action card, make a good choice, and collect Monkey Money.  The child with the most money at the end wins the game. 

Contents include:
26 GREEN "Monkey Action" cards
15 YELLOW "Monkey, MayI?" cards
15 RED "Stop & Think" cards
150 "Monkey Money" cards

The Super Me! card game is as equally easy to play.  Children flip over an Emergency! card, then match the situation to the emergency.  It engages them in learning how to help in a situation and be empathetic.  For instance, a card may depict a female struggling to carry all her groceries.  The child would match it up with the card of the superhero helping her carry the groceries.

Contents include:
24 YELLOW "EMERGENCY" cards
24 RED "SUPER ME!" cards
24 BLUE "WHAT WOULD YOU DO?" cards

These both look fun--I think I'd try "Monkey May I?" first!
