OK, nod your head if you’ve played Checkers before. I’ll go ahead assume that’s close to 100% of you! Yes, Checkers is one of the most classic games of all time and pretty much everyone knows what it is. It’s been played and loved by kids and families for hundreds of years. And there’s a good reason it’s so popular: it’s super fun! Kids love the action of jumping and capturing pieces and getting ‘kinged’ when they finally make it across the board. But as a parent, here’s something you’ll love…
Checkers is a great game for little brains. While your kids play checkers, they are being introduced to key early learning skills. The simple strategy of checkers provides opportunity to learn logic, cause and effect, deductive reasoning, spatial awareness and direction. Whoa, all of that? With benefits like that, you’ll want them to play a lot. We agree, and that’s why we’re excited to show you how we’ve made Cosmic Checkers a game kids will want to play.
Now, not to knock checkers here, we know it’s a classic, but the traditional game can tend to be a bit, well...boring. I’m not talking about the gameplay, but the look and feel. Now shouldn’t a fun kids game have a colorful theme that appeals to kids? Well, that’s what we think and that’s why we went with a popular space theme for our first checkers set. Combining the classic gameplay with a fun theme that has major kid appeal...you might call that a winning move! With the Moon vs. Mars showdown, kids will love playing again and again to see who rules the galaxy!

Summer and slides go together like peanut butter and jelly. Slides at the Water Park. Slip’n Slides in the backyard. The trusty ol’ slide at the local park. Kids love slides!
But did you know there’s a different kind of slide that your kids need to avoid?
It’s known as the Summer Slide and it refers to kids losing academic skills and knowledge over the summer break when they are out of school and not engaged in educational activities. I just heard about this for this time recently as my 5 year old's kindergarten class was winding down and it makes sense. I had just never had to consider it!
