I hope everyone is having a GREAT summer! I am! I did a little blog re-design! What do you think? I am really loving it so far! Hit the HOME button to check it out! This awesome giveaway is my first post on my newly designed blog and it is a good one!
Last year while attending a blogger conference in New York, I ran across these interesting cubes called Sifteo Cubes. They are absolutely amazing! Sifteo prides itself on creating play experiences like any you have ever had and that is just what this product does. Sifteo Cubes are a magical new interactive game system built on the timeless play patterns of legos, building blocks, and domino tiles.Tilt, flip, shake, neighbor, press! What makes it awesome is that Sifteo Cubes communicate wirelessly and respond to each other and your gestures.
The box comes with 3 cubes but you can use up to 12 in a game. They are totally portable and come with a little storage bag. They were very easy to set up and the games are already installed. It also comes with a USB so that you can install more games from their website.
One of the included games Is called “Ninja Slide” starring the Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles. This of course was my sons favorite game. As you can see the graphics are awesome!
There is a word game on the cubes that I am addicted to and would it be great to use in the classroom. There are a lot of games available that promote critical thinking and problem solving. Students have to move the cubes around to make and create new words. The user menu is preloaded into the cubes and you navigate it by tilting the cubes, and through touch.
The Sifteo base at the top, is how you can power them on and off and where all of the sound comes from through the speaker. I have to tell you, I took these out of the box and played them for hours. My son is constantly asking to play with them. He is seven and he can navigate and play them independently. I am a fan of technology in the classroom and this will make a great addition! I love these cubes!
