Skip the plastic board games and opt for games made of renewable resources like bamboo. Schylling has a new line of games called the Panda line--all made of Bamboo and packaged in recycled materials. From Tumbling Towers (a balance game) to Chess there's certain to be a game your kids will love.
Schylling sent the full line over (nine games in all) to Momtrends for testing--though some of the games were too complicated for our girls (ages 4 and 2), I was very impressed with the quality and feel of the toys. The Chinese Checker set looks pretty enough to keep on display and I'm anxious to challenge my girls with this strategy toy soon (I loved this game as a kid). For now we settled for something a little easier. Tic Tac Toe ($6.99) was a big hit--and we didn't have to waste paper as I taught my older girl the principles of the game. This makes a terrific travel game as there are no small pieces to misplace. To see all nine games visit www.schylling.com.
