Summer fun with Shelby’s Snack Shack by Educational Insights – review and #giveaway ends 7/10

Disclosure: The blog owner (that’s me!) received a product or promotional item from Educational Insights to facilitate this review. I was under no obligation to post a positive review. The opinions contained herein, are my own and reflect my experience with the product(s). Your own may differ.

We love games, here in the lost world. Word games, trivia games, real estate games, and guessing games…we love ‘em all. There no better way, in my opinion, to gather ’round the kitchen table with a bowl of popcorn, my favorite folks and a fun game to occupy us all!

Recently, Educational Insights invited me to review one of their newer games -

Shelby’s Snack Shack is a number and counting ‘bone’anza! Shelby has buried lots of her bones on the beach and it’s up to you to help her find and collect them again! If you collect the most bones for Shelby, you win the game! Sounds pretty easy, doesn’t it? It is, but you have to be careful…if you spin one of those sneaky seagulls, you’ll lose some bones! If you get sidetracked chewing a flip-flop, you’ll miss your turn! uh oh!

Mikayla, who will soon be 6, loves this game. She adores the whimsical Shelby and is never bored with the gameplay. Our Sophie-bean watches over her shoulder and helps to count the bones at the end of the game…I think she’ll be ready to play soon and I’m already looking forward to that day!

Shelby’s Snack Shack is for 2-4 players age 4 and up and includes a colorful gameboard, 1 Shelby Squeezer, 40 cute lil bones, 4 bowls, a game spinner and game guide. MSRP os $21.99 and it’s available at Educational Insights, specialty stores and online retailers like

And now, I’d like to introduce you to Shelby…an adorable little rescue pug who stays very busy being the official office dog at Educational Insights. Now, as busy as she is, she still found time to inspire the great new game by EI – Shelby’s Snack Shack!

You can find Educational Insights on Facebook and Twitter and cute little Shelby has her own Facebook page too. Stop by and give her a like, won’t you?

The wonderful folks at EI would love to send you Shelby’s Snack Shack too and have generously offered one of my readers a chance to win it right here on life in the lost world! Thank you so much!
