For my kids and I think for many children out there, Yackety Smack's recorder and the game design itself will release kids' inhibitions and will no doubt shorten pathways to sometimes not-so easily accessed centers of their brains. That is the areas of creativity and spontaneity.

"I think it is hard for some people. You know they get stuck or feel put on the spot," said New York child psychologist, Gayle Hermann about spontaneity. I love Gayle Hermann's opinions on toys and kids. She has completed hundreds and hundreds of neurological assessments on just about every kind of kid that the world has ever known. She learns a lot about kids when she watches them play and respond to opportunities for creativity and spontaneity. However, with Yackety Smack, she told me that the kids feel silly and goofy and they really let loose.

I bet that has a lot to do with the recorder since players are asked to record sounds to represent the cards. Not only does that offer a child an opportunity to associate sounds with images but there are even cards where a child is invited to completely make up something out of the blue. "That really is original and creative," Gayle said. "The goal is to be fun and funny."

The other aspect that is great about games that do induce spontaneity is to give kids an opportunity to be spontaneous but then also to turn that off.

Practice Outrageous Silliness with Propriety

Ever meet one of those can't-hurt-a-fly-people who had been super nice to everyone for years and then you see them get mad that one time and they turn into Godzilla? I think this is similar. Sometimes when we don't know how to navigate new behavioral waters, we end up sinking really fast. I saw it with my kids too.

We must have played a handful of rounds in one night. The kids really liked the game especially when we switched to the name version. That's where you record one sound and a players name. Then when the card that matches the sound is flipped from the player who name was recorded everyone rushes to smack the button.

Overall we had a lot of fun and there was no arguing or fighting in our house for the night. Since then this game has become a regular in our house.

With two kids ages 2 & 5, we're big fans of all the Thinkfun games so were really excited to get a review copy of Yackety Smack! to try out. True to the Thinkfun formula, the game itself is simple enough for the kids to grasp the concept and play quickly, but with enough elements to hold their interest for a good long time (unlike many of the games collecting dust on our shelves!). My 5-year-old got it immediately -- it was above the level of his little sister, but she still enjoyed contributing her own sounds and helping to smack the "Sound Smacker". As a parent of young kids, I know that one of their favorite things is to look at pictures and videos of themselves, so it was extremely clever to invent a game around kids recording themselves making silly sounds. For the couple weeks after the game arrived, the kids spent practically all day running around the house recording their funny sounds on the Sound Smacker and giggling endlessly. I'd highly recommend this one to anyone looking for some fun family diversion that's entertaining for both the kids and Mom & Dad.

The kids had such a blast with this game - especially the ability to record your own sound effects! Our family loves games like these where everyone can play, young and old, and laugh a lot. Plus, you have the added fun of being the first to "see and slap" the cards.

Yackety Smack from ThinkFun will be sure to please! Yackety Smack is a unique game like none we've played before. You get to record your own personal sound effects, and believe me, that adds tremendously to the hilarity!

Everyone gets a stack of cards, and the goal is to be the one with the most cards at the end of the game (similar to the War card game). Spot the cards that match the silly sounds you've recorded and be the first to smack the Sound Smacker! Be warned: This game can get quite competitive! :)

Game comes with one Sound Smacker (voice recorder w/long lasting battery), and 60 Yackety Smack Sound Cards (15 of each style). Geared toward ages 6 and up, this game is fun for all ages! The funnest part is listening while the other players try to record sounds without sounding like a total goof. Not possible!

*I received this game free of charge for the purpose of conducting a review.
