Jeepers Peepers

My family and I have been getting some great games to review being on the Schoolhouse Review Crew team. The most recent game sent to us came from Super Duper Publications.

Photobucket
Super Duper Publications makes fun educational materials for kids with special needs. These include games, card decks, software, apps, books, tests, programs, and more. We were sent one of their most popular games called Jeepers Peepers to review.

Photobucket
Jeepers Peepers is the “Ask and Answer” Question Game for kids ages 5 and up. The price for it is $29.95. The box contains:

6 different color Jeepers Peepers glasses (shown in picture)
101 Photo Cards (blue cards shown in picture)
6 “My Cue Cards” (red cards shown in picture)
Bingo Chips
Spinner w/a tiny screw driver (see my pictures below)
Instruction Booklet

The purpose of the game is to “help students SEE that learning is fun as they ask questions, describe, categorize, problem solve, and more”. The photo cards consists of a picture from the 5 categories in which your child can ask questions to help them guess what the picture may be.

As you can see the categories are:
people,
animals,
things,
food,
and transportation.


To get an idea of how the game is played check out the video.


My son has Asperger’s Syndrome. Games like this are great for him. It has helped him language wise to broaden how he thinks about, ask questions, and describes things. When we first played he had to get used to knowing what kinds of questions to ask so he could get closer to guessing what his picture was. After observing how dad and I would ask questions during our turn, he would try to follow that lead when it was his turn. See him with his glasses and cue card trying to guess what is above his head?

Once he guessed the right answer he loved pushing the spinner to see how many chips he would collect.

The chips are in the round container with the top. The spinner can be used with the sound turned on or off. After pushing the button the spinner light will stop on a number and you can collect that many chips. The game can go on for a long while if you play with all the cards at once. In our case it took a while because my son struggled to come up with good questions to help him get closer to the answer. To me this was really good exercise for his brain development. He says the game is fun and gets excited when it’s time for us to play it each week.

We also received Super Duper's 280 page catalog. I LOVE their catalog! It’s thick and full of fun things to do with special needs kids. I immediately wanted to start a Christmas wish list when I looked through it. There are so many things I know we could use. I like the yellow tabs in the front of the catalog to use for marking items you wish to buy. I made use of them so I didn’t have to keep searching for the pages with the products I’m interested in buying later. Be sure to “like” them on Facebook to keep up with their latest news. They have given me a coupon code to share with my readers. At checkout use this coupon code: BLGJP30 to save 30% off your order. Hurry because it expires August 31, 2012. They also offer free shipping on orders over $20.00 (U.S. and Canada).

Other crew members have tried out Super Duper Publications products as well. Stop by the Schoolhouse Review blog and hear their views on what they received.
