iPieces iPad Games {review & giveaway}

While walking the expo floor at BlogHer, I was completely captivated with the iPieces display at the Pressman Toy booth. I fell in love with the cute games played on iPads, especially air hockey and pool. I could have spent hours at the booth, using the chopstick-like pool cues or the quarter-sized hockey strikers. Fortunately, the kind people at Pressman Toys sent me both games to review. If you guys have anyone 4 and up  with an iPad on your holiday gift list, you need to pick some of these up!

My husband and I played these for the first time after the kids went to bed. It took 2 minutes from the time we opened the box until we were playing pool. There is a QR code on the back of the iPieces box or you can just type in “iPieces” into the app store search box. We downloaded the {free} games and game night began- without even leaving our couch. We chose to play pool first because it has been so long since I played pool, which was clear by all the rules I forgot. Fortunately, iPieces Pool makes it easy for you by reminding you of the rules as you play (hint: don’t put the 8 ball in a pocket before the end of the game, you’ll lose immediately). The pool sticks are about the size of a small ball point pen and have soft felt pads at the end, preventing any scratches or damage to your iPad screen. iPieces are specially designed to be completely safe for all iPad screens, eliminating any worry of your screen being damaged during play. After we played a round of pool we moved onto air hockey.

I’m so glad we waited until Jackson was asleep because I know he would completely hog the air hockey game. At 3, he is a little young for it but I know he will have a blast playing anyway! We were laughing so hard playing air hockey, especially when my {very competitive} husband claimed he was losing because couldn’t see because my man hands were in the way {they weren’t, but I do have big hands}. He may have won the air hockey tournament, but I guarantee you there will be a rematch! Air hockey was a faster play than pool and is suitable for kids 4 and up, while the recommended age for pool is 8 and up.

They are very affordable and would make a great stocking stuffer. You can buy them at Toys“R”Us, Barnes & Noble, K-mart, Radio Shack, Learning Express, and BJ’s Wholesale Club stores nationwide or pick some up online at Amazon & Toys “R” Us. For more information on iPieces, check them out at PressmanToy.com, on Facebook and Twitter.
