Grateful Giveaways #4: thinkSMART Games for Wii and DS

by Tara Kuczykowski on August 18, 2011 · 699 comments


This next giveaway is for younger kids as they get ready for back-to-school!

thinkSmart Games are fun and educational games for Nintendo Wii and DS handheld systems designed to keep children excited and engaged while they play!

  • Crazy Machines for both Wii & DS
    Think outside of the box and push the boundaries of creative thinking as you utilize random objects (anvil, rolling spheres and more!) to build a variety of increasingly complex contraptions that cause chain reactions. Big picture thinking, big fun and big points await in the construction of Crazy Machines!
  • Cosmos Chaos for DS
    When it comes to fun and educational games, nothing can compare to Cosmos Chaos! Funded by a Star Schools grant from the U.S. Department of Education and developed by PREL (Pacific Resources for Education and Learning), Cosmos Chaos! is a collaborative effort on the part of talented video game developers and respected experts in the field of educational research. The result? An exciting and challenging reading game that’s as fun as it is educational!
  • Labyrinth for DS
    Based on the popular board game, Labyrinth drops players in a series of mazes where logical thinking and problem-solving skills are the only way out. Move the walls with the stylus and discover all your treasures in the labyrinth before your opponents do!
  • Scotland Yard for DS
    The chase is a-foot! Scotland Yard is searching for Mister X in London, New York, Berlin, Paris & Amsterdam. Deductive thinking and procedural logic are key as players aid the famous detectives in the capture of the elusive Mr. X.

Our kids love their game systems, but we try to monitor the games that they're playing closely, which is why we really appreciate companies like thinkSMART that really put forth a concerted effort to produce games that are both fun and educational. My kids were so excited to see a stack of new games to try out, and I feel good knowing that they are actually learning valuable lessons and skills from each of them. They really held their attention and challenged them to think outside of the box.

One lucky Deal Seeking Mom reader will win a thinkSMART Games prize package that includes all of the games listed above!

Entry is simple! You just need to answer the question below by leaving a comment on this site! You can even gain up to 3 bonus entries for doing each additional item listed (just make sure that you leave one entry for each one – up to a total of 4 comments.) As a reminder, comments left on Facebook, Twitter or other posts will not be included.

REQUIRED ENTRY:

Leave a comment. Which thinkSMART game do you think your kids would most enjoy?

BONUS ENTRIES:

1. Follow Deal Seeking Mom in a reader or via e-mail updates.

2. Follow Deal Seeking Mom on Facebook or Twitter.

This giveaway will remain open until 11:59 p.m. EST, Tuesday, 8/23. Any comments left after this cut-off will not be counted. The winner will be selected randomly and will be notified via email within 48 hours after the close of the contest.

This giveaway is part of the Grateful Giveaways Back-to-School Event being hosted by myself and 9 other bloggers. You can increase your chances of winning this prize (as well as all of the others on this site), by visiting each of them and entering the same way as you did here. You have plenty of time to get to all of them, since the contest will be open for five full days.

If you haven’t already done so, you might want to print out this spreadsheet to help guide you through all of the entries on all of the blogs.
