Why you’ll love it: This imaginative twist on the classic Memory game not only features penguins, (and what kid doesn’t love penguins?), but it also develops brain-building recall skills.  Pengoloo also has additional rules for older players that allow for more complex play. And you can feel eco-friendly because the game’s producers have vowed to plant two trees for every tree used to create the ultra-cute wooden pieces in this game!
