Review:
An innovative twist on the traditional bingo game, the goal is to match everyday sounds to the pictures on the cards. When played in the traditional manner, the game focuses on sound recognition, listening skills, matching, image association and turn taking. However, the instructions also include eight additional activities in the four categories of "Discover," "Perform," "Create," and "Connect." These additional activities include, but are not limited to, a mega game where players work together to fill all four cards, naming the objects on the cards, and drawing pictures of the objects that the children hear. The instructions also encourage children and parents to get out in their own neighborhoods to experience the sounds surrounding them. 2 to 4 Players.
