Here we are, with another toy review! This time it is the game named Wiggle N Giggle. It is a card game which involves three
demonstration of the game played with cards.
It is a fantastic game which works on player’s working memory as it encourages the player to hold on information in their head and then perform the action. Working memory is the part of short-term memory which is concerned with immediate conscious perceptual and linguistic processing. It is very crucial in a child’s academic success. So when the child is asked what will be 8+2? the child has to hold ‘8’, ‘+’, and ‘2’ in his head and then perform the addition. Concerns with working memory could affect his/her phonic development, language building and acquisition of mathematical skills.
Furthermore, the game builds upon the vocabulary of action words like make a fish face. A child should have a very strong receptive and expressive language repetoire as it strengths the development of thinking skills and cognitive abilities. Language builds upon my thinking and vice versa. The similar connection was observed in the study file:///C:/Users/upasana/Downloads/Talking_Understanding_Thinking_2-14-2017.pdf
Also, the game is a wonderful time for the child to have a family time wherein all are away from the gadgets from their hands and play cards. It encourages giggles and wiggles in the family members as well! We seriously enjoyed playing this game. I hope you too! Please remember I am not propagating any particular game or manufacturer.
