Aidan is the little comedian in our family. He is always trying to make people laugh by being silly. I knew when I seen The Riddle Show that it would be perfect for him. It is an electronic toy shaped like his very own microphone. At the push of a button, it tells an assortment of jokes, riddles, and tongue twisters.
The microphone approximately has four buttons that serve the following functions: (1) Tell a riddle, (2) Tell a riddle joke or tongue twister, (3) Answer, and (4) Repeat. He played with this for longer than I thought he would, he loves it. He thinks the jokes are funny, and the riddles require thought.
The riddles are a set of clues for everybody to try and figure out. Such as “I am long and curved. I have smooth yellow skin- you peel me to eat me, what am I?” (answer: banana) If you didn’t hear it well the first time, there is a repeat button, which I like about it. To get the answers, there is an answer button below the repeat button.
Jokes are things like “When does the moon stop eating?” (answer: when it’s full) “What do frogs like with their hamburgers?” (French Flies) The microphone also works without the joke or riddles, so that he can make up his own or sing a crazy song. He loves it. The microphone just lets them hear their own voice a bit louder, which is pretty cool.
The Riddle Show works with 3 (AAA) batteries, which come with the purchase. Aidan has used this many times and it still hasn’t shown any indication of it running low on battery power. More bang for your buck. As a mom, I love that he isn’t only having fun but that he is also learning at the same time.
Shh… They’re Learning!
- Increases listening comprehension skills
- Enhances critical thinking skills
- Builds vocabulary
- Increases self-confidence and self-esteem
The Riddle Show is the perfect fit for his (and my 5 year old daughters) hands. They can hold it very well and push the buttons without it slipping out of their hands or falling. There are 4 buttons (besides the on/off and volume buttons). Buttons: Riddle, Joke, Answer, and Repeat buttons.
It is made very well with a durable, sturdy plastic. I’ve always been a huge fan of Educational Insight toys, and this just added to my list of reasons WHY I love them so much. Who wouldn’t? Fun while learning is the best way to learn in my opinion. He seems to love when the spotlight is on him and he can make people listen and laugh for long periods of time.
He loves making people smile, but his jokes were limited since he’s only 7. Now he can tell jokes or riddles for as long as he wants, because he doesn’t have to think them up himself. This toy actually HAS him thinking up new jokes now. We might have a future comedian here, lol.
You can get The Riddles Show at the Educational Insights website which has the playful promise. This is a 365 day risk free guarantee, and I’ve NEVER seen that with any other toy site EVER!
You can also shop by age, or whether you want to shop toys or games. I love when kid websites let me shop by age, so I know what is in the age-range of my kids.!
