Destruct 3 Board Game

December 31, 2008

In Destruct 3, players take turns building a small tower while their opponents try to bring it down using one of 3 ‘destructro’ devices including a catapult, a wrecking ball pendulum and a ramp.
Besides the promise of smashing stuff up real good like, the game also teaches concepts like cause and effect, as well as basic engineering premises while you try to construct and position your tower to withstand the attacks.
Very nice…

Peel a banana, unzip an orange or shuck an ear of corn-just like the real thing! Made of durable, easy to clean vinyl, these realistic produce open through a variety of clever methods to reveal their insides. Now your kids can grow up knowing how to feed themselves… that is if they don’t assume the real fruits come with zips… they even have breads with pictures…
