Patch's Can-Do Roo Preschool Game is Filled with Activities

BELOIT, Wis.—The new Can-Do Roo™ preschool game from Patch Products is a soft kangaroo with a pouch full of activities to help teach numbers, letters, colors and shapes to children. The game also includes activities, such as hopping like a kangaroo and imitating the sounds and actions of animals, so children will have fun while learning.

In Can-Do Roo, players reach into the kangaroo's pouch and pull out a Fun Card that will tell them to hop to a particular shape or color. Or they might have to act and sound like a dog, frog, cow or other common animal.

The 96 Fun Cards in Roo's pouch also include letters of the alphabet to help children recognize each letter and learn what words start with that letter. If they pick a number card, they will have fun hopping that number of times while counting. Players who successfully complete their Fun Card keep the card, and the player who collects the most Fun Cards wins the game.

The kangaroo holds all the Fun Cards in its pouch and serves as a soft and cuddly companion for preschoolers.

Can-Do Roo is for 2 or more players ages 4 and up.
