Disclosure: I was provided product to facilitate my review, however all opinions are my own. 
Diggity Dogs
As summer approaches, school will soon be adjourned and my children will have lots of time to spend at home. In an effort to keep their minds sharp and beat summer boredom, I’ve been on a search for fun games we can play together.    I am so excited that I found Diggity Dogs Game by Educational Insights. It is exactly the kind of game I was looking for to keep my children entertained.

Review #2

I love board games, but they can be quite frustrating to store.  They’re big, bulky and consist of numerous little pieces that end up getting lost.  Diggity Dogs Game is not one of those games.  There’s no board involved; only a deck of cards and the dog pieces.   The box itself is no bigger than a shoe box and can easily fit into any space.

The object of the game is to adopt as many dogs as you can.  The player with the most dogs at the end wins. On each dog is a picture of items you need to collect to adopt them. You take turns asking other players for items (think “Go Fish.”)
When you ask other players for a particular item, you must talk like a dog!  Panting and barking is encouraged in the instructions. My children were shy about impersonating a dog and didn’t do it at all the first time we played.  However, the second time around they really gave it their all. We couldn’t stop laughing because we were having so much fun.

I loved that Diggity Dogs Game was age appropriate and educational for my five year old. The rules were easy enough for him to follow and remember, and yet challenging enough to keep his interest.  Throughout the game he practiced matching, counting and critical thinking. He didn’t need much help to play the game and that made him feel confident. It makes me happy as a mom to see my child learning, having fun and building self-esteem at the same time.

What’s very unique about this game is that the dogs in the pictures are not “show-biz ” dogs. They are real people’s pets and were selected via a Facebook contest to be in the game! My children loved that each dog pictured comes with a brief biography. They especially loved reading quickly fell in love with their favorites and were so proud when they adopted them.

Diggity Dogs Game by Educational Insights is a wonderful addition to our game collection.  It is exactly the kind of game I was searching for to encourage fun family time. It will also be great entertainment for lazy summer afternoons that won’t involve turning on the television.   Diggity Dogs is a game that will please both kids and parents. It has already become a family favorite!

    I look for a game that’s fun and educational for my grandsons, but not too complicated because they have very short attention spans.

    It has to be fun and not too difficult to play

  3. I look for something entertaining but also educational

  4. It has to be good for all ages. I like it to be compact so we can take it with us on our road trips, but that’s not a requirement.
