Most kids love board games, and mine really do. When we were offered Feed the Woozle, I knew this would be a fun game for my kids to play, and I was right.
Feed the Woozle is a brightly colored, simple, but fun little game for kids three years and up. It’s a cooperative game, meaning that instead of children being opponents, they work together for a common goal. With Feed the Woozle, kids take turns rolling a dice and feeding the Woozle silly snacks like fishy cupcakes, worm pie, and sand pizza. As children grow, you can raise the difficulty level by adding in special moves they do and/or blindfolding them.

This game is entertaining and easy for kids to understand and do, which lowers the amount of frustration for them. The box says ages 3-6 years, but my 10 year old had a blast playing as well. Cooperative games are especially good for children on the spectrum, like my 5 year old Quinn. Sometimes he gets too caught up in the competition portion of games that he doesn’t enjoy them and if he starts losing, it causes him to start having a meltdown. Cooperative games are fun and they build friendships, help with dexterity, strengthen motor skills, and teach body awareness, all things that are good for all kids, but especially for ASD kids. It has even won the American Specialty Toy Retailers Association’s Best Toys for Kids award in the the “Games Play” 3-7 years old category, as well as getting high marks from National Autism Resources.
If you have any children in your life, they would really love playing Feed the Woozle . You can purchase Feed the Woozle at PeaceableKingdom.com and on Amazon.com for $19.99.
