Pressman's Ipad iPieces Review & Giveaway


Last week, during Hurricane Sandy, my family & I were going a bit stir crazy being stuck indoors for a few days. It was an opportune time for us to just relax and hang out with each other which we don't get too often. My son & I love playing games of all sorts. We have a ton of board games that we never get to play together since technology has ruled the world.
I was thrilled to have been given the chance to review the Ipad iPieces by Pressman Toys. This is a total new way of playing some of your favorite games.
We first tried Air Hockey. Andre enjoys air hockey so I knew this would be ideal for him. The iPieces are perfect size for your hand. At first I was a bit nervous because he would bang on the Ipad while he was trying to slide the puck. I feared he would crack the screen. Eventually, he grasped the idea of sliding the iPiece, and it became a fun time. It is a bit difficult to control the puck but after a few tries you get the gist of how to control the pieces.
Secondly we tried Snakes & Ladders. It's similar to Chutes & Ladders, but with a western edge. You can move forward by climbing up ladders but watch out for the snakes! Land on one of their heads and down you go! It was a fun game but my son hates losing because of course he kept getting a snake.

These are great games to have especially for those nights where it will bring the family together and away from the TV's, texting or cell phones. They are very affordable and make a fun gift for the holiday season. iPieces are available for purchase at Toys“R”Us, Barnes & Noble, K-mart, Radio Shack, Learning Express, and BJ’s Wholesale Club stores nationwide. They also can be purchased at Amazon or ToysRUs. The games retail for $9.99

One lucky reader will win one Ipad iPiece Game of their choice! Winner can choose from the following:
Air Hockey 
Snakes & Ladders
Fishing Game
Pool
Game of Goose

Disclosure: I received 2 games to facilitate my review. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.

We spend time together by making sure to go out to eat together at least once a week and making time to play games together during the busy week!

We do everything together. I set aside date night for my kids separately, though - which sometimes ends up being date day or evening. We spend some time doing dinner or a movie or making something together, one one. My Dad did that with each one of us seven girls and it means everything to us now that we are grown.
