Blind Spell takes away your vision with opaque glasses and then challenges you to spell without being able to see the letters. Give a handful of letters to the blindfold glasses-wearing player and announce the word to be spelled. The player must try to assemble the letters in the correct order by feel before the time runs out. Add extra letters for an increased challenge! Great for kids ages 8 and up.
Word Whiz gives kids the chance to play against the electronic games instead of other kids. That makes this game perfect for long car rides, airplane flights or time spent where you want kids to be calm. Word Whiz challenges kids to build as many 3-,4- and 5- letter words as they can in 60 seconds.
