Child One:  “I won!  Nah, nah, nah!  I WON!  You lost!  I WON!”

Child Two:  ” I don’t want to play anymore.”

Have you heard that before?  *Sigh* This stage that kids go through of MUST-win competitiveness can be frustrating.  While you know that every child needs to learn to be a gracious winner and a brave loser, it’s still tough to get through the learning times.

The people at Peaceable Kingdom have developed a fun type of game that is called a “cooperative game.”  What is a cooperative game?  I’ll let them tell you:

A cooperative game is a game where all players play together against a common obstacle, not against each other. In a cooperative game no one feels left out and everyone has fun! Peaceable Kingdom’s cooperative board games use familiar game mechanisms – spinning a spinner, matching cards, moving a token, strategizing a win! The difference is that players play together. Playing together helps kids in many ways – they experience shared decision-making, they build self-esteem, they learn to share, to feel compassion, and to work as a team. Playing cooperative games teaches kids to cooperate.

How smart is that?  Willy’s Wiggle Web is one of the cooperative games from Peaceable Kingdom and we thought we’d give it a try.  It’s very easy to set up, you put up the supports for the paper web, stretch it out and then load it with little bugs and Willy.  The object of the game is to release all the little bugs without dropping Willy.  With child-safe scissors you make cuts to the web to release them.

Willy’s Wiggly Web has already won three major awards:

  • 2012 Oppenheim Gold Award
  • 2012 Gold NAPPA Award
  • 2012 Parents’ Choice Approved

This game is a great affordable gift for an entire family at under $20!  Are you visiting someone this Christmas?  Bring along Willy’s Wiggle Web as a fun gift and be prepared to giggle!
