NEW 2008 GAMES
Green Eggs & Ham, Order Up, Sam!™ Game: The Fast-Paced Frenetically Fun Food Game!
Sam has opened a café and invited his friends, Fox, Mouse, and Goat, for dinner. In this fast-action, frenetically fun game, preschoolers dash about to help Sam serve up green eggs and ham--and other silly foods. When the chef yells, "Order Up!" kids use color and shape identification along with counting and pre-reading skills to correctly identify food items and serve them to café guest. The faster the food is delivered, the more tips you'll make! But watch out--when you hear "Bugs in the Kitchen!" you've got to race back to the dining room and check all the table for insects.

Inspired by the classic Dr. Seuss children's story, the Green Eggs & Ham, Order Up, Sam! game promotes early reading and counting as well as number, shape, and color identification. The whimsical Electronic Musical Menu helps kids make the association between letters and words, encouraging a love for reading. Fosters cooperative play and social interaction while it gets kids moving for fantastic fast-action fun!
