We love the traditional Rush Hour board game. Sagezilla has it in her Montessori 1st-3rd grade classroom and it's on the kids holiday wish list. The app version is a ton of fun, too. So we were excited when ThinkFun contacted us about their limited edition holiday version. This cute little penguin needs your help, to navigate the clusters of colorful prezzies and escape. These skills puzzles grow your brain and keep boredom at bay. Du-Jay (age 10) made it all the way to the expert level. These challenges are a great way to keep your little penguins from getting cranky while caught in actual rush hour. They're great on long, holiday drives and buy you whine free time to get some extra shopping done. They're fun for adults, too.
If you have an iphone, enter today for your chance to win. Got Androids, like us, the app has been reduced to just .99 cents at Android Marketplace! You can also try it out for a few minutes on your computer with Amazon Apps "test drive" button. But put a rush on it. The game is only available through 12/31.
Here's the scoop:
