The Diggin: Wobble Deck from Imagine Toys helps everyone work on their balance and inner core strength. The kids love the funny sounds and games. I love how much exercise the kids are getting while having a great time.
There are multiple modes to make playtime more challenging:
- Freestyle – Make your own music to three background beats
- Wobble Mania – Match colors, numbers and sounds
- Wobble Match – Remember and match instructions
And it is not easy! The sound effects, which range from the guitar, drums, toot, crash, and bring! keep the kids laughing. The idea is to keep your balance while tilting in different directions to create a new noise. My six-year-old son loves balancing backward. My four-year-old daughter does not. The game of keeping your balance and making different sounds lasted over thirty minutes. We did this after dinner when there is always a little more energy to drain before the bath-story-bedtime routine. My four-year-old daughter holds my hand to balance. She likes to lean to the guitar side and not backward to the piano because that it a hard position. We enjoyed the first setting: Freestyle – Make your own music to three background beats
Changing modes on the Diggin: Wobble Deck:
When you change from Free-style to Wobble Mania the directions come from a woman’s voice. If you succeed you go to the next level. If you make one mistake you do not move on. I like this feature because my six-year-old son has not advanced yet to Level Two. Therefore he will have continued interest in this game.
By seven o’clockin the morning, my six-year-old son was back on Diggin: Wobble Deck! He had not advanced from the night before. My two children took turns this morning after breakfast. The physical play was channeled and they were active for over thirty minutes.
Now the toy is in my daughter’s room. Today she put the game to Free-Style mode and showed me how she balances.
“I do it myself!” she says as she follows the instructions and leans in all five directions unassisted. She continued to play by herself for at least another twenty minutes.
Later that day my son was playing again and this time he was using the Wobble Match mode.
“This level is hardest mom. I have to match the sounds and the lights from the instructions. Sometimes I can’t get both done in time.”
“Are you enjoying it?” I ask.
“Yeah. At first I thought it was easy, but then I saw that I have to listen to the instructions. Getting to the next level is pretty hard, but I’ll get it.”
