"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.Read more ›
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.
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.
Step 1: Say It! Record Two Silly Sounds.
Step 2: See It! Be the First to Spot the Card that Match the Sounds.
Step 3: Slap It! Slap the Sound Maker to Collect the Cards and Win.

This is one of several games I purchased for nieces and nephews for Christmas. I found them rated in Good Housekeeping the prior year. Read morePublished 23 months ago by DDoty
This is by far the worst game I have EVER purchased. There are only 4 cards that make up the categories and the rest are repeats. Read morePublished on November 19, 2013 by Vicki L. Hutchison
This game is fun and a bit different than what my son is use to. It's not like the matching games and makes the young ones think and pay attention. Read morePublished on April 27, 2013 by Pistol King
This game was recommended by a friend and when we got it and read how to play it seemed fun. It is a hit at school and the kids like it a lot.Published on April 7, 2013 by Walter Weismantel
This is a good product. The concept of the game is super simple which is good and bad. My 3 year old loves it, but even for a kid's game I find this one a bit boring for me... Read morePublished on March 18, 2013 by Kindle Customer

This game was highly rated and I was excited about getting it for my 8 year old. It's very simple and not real entertaining for an older boy. Probably best for younger kids.Published on January 9, 2013 by L. Oldford
