RESTLESS, BORED DURING THE LONG WINTER MONTHS?
San Diego, CA – Jan. 18, 2008 – When the weather turns cold, and cabin fever attacks, parents may be at a loss for ways to entertain their children and be tempted to plant them in front of the computer or television.
The U.S. Census Bureau's Statistical Abstract of the United States reports that in 2007, each American adult and teen spent an estimated 3,518 hours - or nearly five months each year consuming media. That includes 65 days in front of the TV, and a little over a week on the Internet. And, according to BBM Nielsen Research, kids age 6 to 11 watch about 17 hours per week of TV – almost two-and-a-half hours per day!
Wiggity Bang Games is determined to reverse that trend. In a world where tech gadgets often replace human contact, Wiggity Bang Games (WBG), encourages families to come together to talk, play and laugh and most importantly, have fun - even when holed up in the house.
WBG CEO Matthew Rivaldi says, "Families can’t help but have fun with one another when playing our games. Using their imagination and appreciating each one’s personality and ‘talents’ proves more fun than zoning out in front of the TV or computer.”
Quelf and FlapDoodle
These games keep players moving, jumping and dancing with interactive cards that read: "Stand up, spin around, slap both your legs three times and say 'Blast off!’ ” or “Jump and wiggle while singing, 'I've got ants in my pants and they wanna dance!' ” With the roll of the dice, players will soon forget cabin fever angst as they dance an Irish jig while singing a children's song or pretend to be attacked by a swarm of bees while wearing a snorkel and flippers.
From board to card games, Wiggity Bang Games should have families turning off the gadgets and wishing for more snow days in no time.
