DELRAY BEACH, FL • December 15, 2011 – Levenger, a leading provider of Tools for Serious Readers™, announced today that it has expanded its educational toys section just in time for the holidays.
Along with educational toy gifts for children such as Electronic Snap Circuits, Numbers practice toys and ABC heirloom blocks, Levenger this year has created its own enriching board games suitable for the whole family.
The Proust Questionnaire board game turns the famous Proust Questionnaire into a delightful way to surprise each other with answers to the same questions that Marcel Proust (In Search of Lost Time) and his pals asked each other in the late 1800s. Players must pair the right answer to the right friend for such questions as “Your idea of happiness” and “If not yourself, who would you be?” For ages 16 and older.
The Bodleian Library Woodcut Puzzle
Who but the English could come up with Right Roads and Wrong Ways that wander down Prudence Passage, up Rumination Row, around Tittle Tattle Corner, and through Bad Boys’ Road? Levenger came upon this whimsical children’s game (with plenty of humor for grownups) in the magical archives of Oxford’s Bodleian, one of the world’s oldest libraries. Levenger turned it into a woodcut puzzle full of whimsies — pieces laser-cut into the shapes of many of the images. And just for fun, they have reproduced the game’s original instructions. Puzzle lovers will delight in piecing together the witty highways and byways leading up to the Cottage of Content (as in contented).
Charades for Booklovers
For fans of charades or Trivial Pursuit, Levenger presents its own Literary Charades, where players learn little-known literary tidbits — or Lit Bits — about famous books and their authors. Players must name the author that the Lit Bit describes by guessing the pantomime, or charade, of the author’s famous book.The 60 clue cards feature such luminaries as Fitzgerald, Dickens, Twain, Thoreau, Updike, E.B. White, Vonnegut and J.K. Rowling.
Along with these educational toys and gifts for children, Levenger also offers a host of last-minute gifts for people of all ages The Verona II Pen, Pocquettes iPod case, Thai Pad and Accordian Wallet are popular items sure to please almost anyone.
