Daddy Troy: Welcome back to Gear Daddy I’m
your host Daddy Troy. Games are great for families but they have one tragic flaw, the
boxes fall apart. It makes a mess on a shelf, you lose all the pieces, and tears get shed…
it drives you crazy. But I’ve got a solution and today I’m gonna tell you all about it.
This whole week at Dad Labs has been brought to you by Fundex Games. They have this really
cool set if manipulative games you can play with, with your kids. They’re really fun
and we’re giving away a bunch of them so stick around until the end of the program,
and I’ll tell you how to get some. Game savers are great. These plastic hard
shell cases in which you can put your games and you’ll notice that the boards goes right
in there, all the pieces go in there, the cards all go in there. It’s well organized
and the best part about is that when you’re done, you just clip it shut and look at this
nothing falls apart, it all stays organized. Game savers, they have a bunch of different
sizes, this orange one is for small profile games. They’ve got a blue one for games
that has money in them, pretty cool. And they’ve also got a purple one for other differently
sized games. Now one other thing I would suggest about
these is that with games savers you kind of lose the identity of the game because the
box is has so much that helps you identify with the game. So what I suggest doing is
cutting out the graphics of the box and putting them on to the game savers box directly by
super gluing them or something like that so the kid can actually have a visual clue as
to what is inside the box. Finally, I also recommend that within the
box you might have to augment them a little bit. I really like to use baggies. I don’t
know why but I do know that my kids end of cleaning up more if they’re putting things
inside a baggie first and then dropping it inside the tray. And I also know that you
know cards will go everywhere if you don’t do something like out them in a baggie or
a rubber band. A final hint about baggies, kids do better with the kind of baggies that
have the zipper on them, their little pinchers, they work so much better with these than they
do with these type baggies that are really hard to close.
