Kubit2me Now You're Talkin' (for ages 10 and up) and Kubit2me Lil' Scholars (ages 3-6).
KUBIT2ME NOW YOU'RE TALKIN' (FOR AGES 10 AND UP) AND KUBIT2ME LIL' SCHOLARS (AGES 3-6) were designed by Mary Kay Russell, a mother of four who saw a void in the toy market for noncompetitive "self-expression games." These denim, fuzzy-trimmed cubes are designed to get kids to open up, talk, and interact with others. They also boost basic language and math skills. Just toss the cube to a player, encourage her to draw a card from one of the pockets, and get silly together. Now You're Talkin' and Lil' Scholars are recommended by therapists, speech language pathologists, and parents of children with autism. Now You're Talkin' was also named 2008 Game of the Year by Creative Child Magazine.
