I have talked about Shumee Toys in one of my earlier posts. Yes, the same brand that makes awesome eco-friendly wooden toys. They have safe, non-toxic and a really vibrant collection of toys that is a must buy if you are an eco- conscious parent. Starting from toddlers to upto 7 years, they have a wide range of toys that is very kid friendly.
I was actually a bit sad that I had nothing to buy from them for my kids. When Meeta, the founder told me that there was something in the making that was not yet launched and perfect for my boys, I was waiting for it. And then it arrived, Ninjaki by Shumee Toys! 7 wooden hand-painted ninjas that were waiting to be tried.
ninjaKi by Shumee Toys
A 7 card set explains each of the ninja’s that are a part of ninjaKi. The concept of ninjaKi is very interesting. A game of skill and balance, that helps improves a lot of factors – focus, concentration, fine motor skills, creativity, problem solving and more. One needs to balance these ninja’s atop each other and let the tower stay without toppling over. It’s absolutely fun and there is complete chaos when the boys have their friends over at home and they take turns in playing with the ninjaKi. It comes with a measuring scale that allows you to see how tall your ninjaKi tower is.
Not just for kids, adults would love the game too! In fact, I am guilty of spending a few minutes with this everyday before the boys get back home. As an adult, it has worked on my patience. Patience is not a very strong virtue, but when you play with this, it allows you to slow down a bit. And yes, it is addictive too! I would actually call this a perfect family game!
What skills does it help with?
- Imagination and Creativity – One of my boys chose to make two ninjas as a base and build a tower. Fair enough! All of us are were breaking our heads to balance them one on top and this guy just thought out of the box.
- Problem Solving
- Curiosity and Discovery
- Fine Motor Skills
- Confidence and Self-Expression
