Parenting Tip:

Do the typical children's games leave your gifted children less than enthused and maybe a little bit bored? To avoid this problem, always look for games that will encourage your child to think. Gifted kids love mental challenge; they love to learn. So any game that challenges them or allows them to learn will be sure to be hits!

When you're looking for games for your gifted children, keep in mind that the recommended ages are not always accurate -- unless the game was designed for gifted children! If you aren't sure whether your child is ready for a particular game or not, consider this: it's better to get a game that is too old for a child than one that is too young. If a game is too young, your child will never play it. If the game is too old, your child may play it later.

Pressman Toy - Original Topple Board Game
from: Pressman Toys

Editorial Review:

Product Description:
A little luck and a steady hand will make you a winner in this exciting balancing game that reinforces STEM skills! Players take turns rolling the die and placing pieces on the different levels of the tipsy topply game unit. Watch out…as more pieces are added the tower rotates, tips, and sways. Don't be the one that makes all the pieces come toppling down! To win, complete a row of five, or stack your pieces 4 or more high. Great for spatial relationships, math skills, and simple building Topple includes: 48 playing pieces, a sturdy plastic Topple tower and stand, game die and complete instructions. For 2-4 players ages 6 and up.

Amazon.com:
Topple is a three-dimensional board game for the whole family. To play, perch the game board (a five-level, 8-inch square of molded plastic) on top of the 7-inch- high stand, choose your color piece, and agree on what score will win. Each player then rolls a die and must place a piece on the game board level that corresponds to the number rolled. Points are scored by completing rows or building high stacks. The round ends and you get a point penalty if you send pieces cascading off the platform--that is, cause a topple. Younger children can play without scoring, with players being eliminated as they cause topples. --Richard Farr
