In our tech-heavy world, we are always excited to find games that bring the family together as well as those that are educational. We just discovered an incredible new board game that does just that as it is designed to boost EQ - (or emotional intelligence) in kids ages 3-7.
Developed by EQtainment, a company that "is on a mission to improve emotional intelligence globally by creating fun and simple tools for practicing social skills and better behavior," Q’s Race to the Top is an incredible way to connect kids to physical activity, conscious thinking, and behavior skills.
Exclusively available in all Target stores, my family and I have been loving the game as we reflect with Q (a genius monkey) with the object to get him to the top of his treehouse. This includes a storybook and 150 fun questions and actions designed to improve EQ (emotional intelligence/emotional quotient). Fun for the whole family, the game takes us on an imaginative adventure through play, storytelling and questions that allows children to recognize, interpret and respond to emotions in oneself and others. Personally, I love how this allows us all to practice essential life skills such as self awareness, impulse control, manners, empathy and intuition.
Meet Q, the genius monkey with A LOT to learn about life. In the board game “Q’s Race to the Top,” children can help Q race to the top of his tree house by answering questions and performing fun actions. The questions are designed to promote feeling identification and verbalization, manners, social skills, creative thinking, balance, and coordination.
Developed by EQtainment founder, Harvard-educated mother of 3 and TV personality Sofia Dickens who has made it her mission to make this philosophy accessible to moms all over the country Larry King, Vanessa Lachey, Leann Rimes and even Willie Robertson are on board.
With a game that focuses on conscious thinking and a connection to our actions, we love how Q’s Race to the Top is fun way for kids and families to learn how to succeed and develop the skills to develop EQ.
