You’ve been Sentenced! word game wins 2012 Mom’s Best Award
McNeill Designs for Brighter Minds’ flagship game, the multi award-winning You’ve been Sentenced! word game recently received a 2012 Mom’s Best Award.
Founded in 2004, Mom’s Best Awards offers moms an unbiased way to determine a product’s value, quality, usefulness, functionality and appearance. It’s also a way for manufacturers to receive product recognition and valuable feedback from moms.
Each of the Mom’s Best Award winning products has gone through a rigorous evaluation process by moms, who have used these products in everyday living situations. These products are then graded on their own merits with pre-selected criteria determined by moms.
“Products displaying the Mom’s Best Award Winner’s Seal offer consumers a level of assurance that these products were evaluated by moms, dads and childcare experts and will perform to the highest level of satisfaction,”
Here’s a little of what moms at Mom’s Best moms are saying about the You’ve been Sentenced! word game:
“I had fun playing this game with my kids and my husband. I love having a game that I can play with my kids that is educational. I’ve been looking for good ways to teach my daughter grammar. She’ll be going into third grade, so many of the concepts are new to her. This game is the perfect way for her to learn how to construct sentences properly, and the entire family has a great time while she is learning.”
“I love how creative ‘You’ve Been Sentenced’ is. Coming up with wacky sentences (that are also grammatically correct!) is fun and challenging. Some of the sentences we were coming up with were really out there just so we could get the most points, and it was hilarious. This game is great for both adults and kids.”
“Not only is this game great for the educational value, being able to buy different theme cards is an inexpensive way to make it seem like a whole new game. It never gets boring! This is the first game my family chooses on family game night. It’s also an extremely valuable tool for teachers to get students motivated and have fun in the classroom.”
In addition to the 2012 Mom’s Best Award, the You’ve been Sentenced! word game has been honored with the following industry prestigious awards:
• PAL Award
• Parent Tested Parent Approved Award
• George Lucas Educational Foundation's Edutopia magazine, Hot Media for Educators
• MENSA Society's Parenting for High Potential magazine, Resource Roundup Pick
