Verbal Volley Educational Game Recognized by Dr. Toy As "Best Vacation Product for 2010"

Print ArticleEmail Article
Verbal Volley, a research-based card game from Mindfull Games, of Chesterfield, MO, created to help players learn, retain and use vocabulary, has been named one of Dr. Toy's Best Vacation Products for 2010.

Dr. Toy's Best Children's Vacation Products Awards were developed by noted child development authority Stevanne Auerbach, PhD (a.k.a. Dr. Toy), as a service to consumers who desire to purchase safe, affordable, educationally oriented, and stimulating toys and play products for children for vacation time at home or on the road.

"Children learn best through play," says Dr. Auerbach, "and these Best Products encourage children to maximize their potential and make the most of smart play."

Designed by Mindfull Games president and licensed speech-language pathologist, Kristin Edmonds, MM, MA, CCC-SLP. Verbal Volley is a game that's fun and educational for everyone who plays. Individual players or teams are challenged to quickly come up with synonyms and antonyms to word cards pulled from the Verbal Volley deck.

Verbal Volley's simple rules and universal appeal make it a favorite in-class tool of elementary teachers as well as a valuable resource for speech and language pathologists. The game specifically targets the vocabulary for which schools and teachers are held accountable on standardized tests, and it also is designed to improve word retrieval in older adults as well as brain injury and stroke victims.

Verbal Volley is designed to enhance learning by creating socially interactive, research-based play that is designed to be a fun and effective educational experience. Verbal Volley can be purchased in select retail stores and online.
