PLAYTIME NOW SPELLED B-I-N-G-O WITH NICK DVD BINGO
Screenlife and Mattel's New Interactive DVD Bingo Game Offers Hours of Fun and Skill-Building for Preschoolers
(SEATTLE) – February 11, 2007 – Screenlife, LLC, the DVD board game innovators who created Scene It?® The DVD Game™, and Mattel, Inc. introduce Nick™ DVD Bingo, a new interactive game for children ages four and up that puts a creative spin on a timeless classic.
This slimetastic DVD game, hosted by SpongeBob SquarePants, brings Bingo to life by incorporating familiar Nickelodeon characters and show clips with traditional Bingo-style play, giving parents an educational and engaging way to reinforce basic child development skills with fun games.
A colorful cast of Nickelodeon characters, such as Jimmy Neutron and Dora the Explorer, help teach fundamental development skills such as number and color recognition and listening proficiency. The game also reinforces matching skills and following directions, making it a perfect refresher for older brothers and sisters. Narrated game play lets players enjoy Nick DVD Bingo with parents or siblings, or all on their own.
To play the game, kids simply match the number, color and corresponding Nickelodeon character shown on the DVD to the tiles on their Bingo game card. The first player to fill in the designated pattern wins the game, while giggles and learning keep the game fun for everyone. In addition, Nickelodeon TV show clips are interspersed throughout the game, giving players the chance to score free tiles.
The game includes a DVD, double-sided cards for up to six players and Bingo chips adorned with the famous Nickelodeon Splat. Housed in a handy carrying case, the game is easily portable for family vacations, play dates and birthday parties.
Nick DVD Bingo is available for $19.99 in stores nationwide or online at http://www.screenlifegames.com.
