OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Alex Active Yoga Activity Blocks is a kid friendly yoga game that offers a fun way to learn yoga poses. It also encourages working on strength, balance, and focus. 24 yoga pose cards in three levels of difficulty are included. The levels are marked by the numbers 1, 2 or 3 found in the palm shape. Each card features an animal in a different pose with step-by-step illustrated instructions on the back. The poses are given basic animals names. For example, downward dog is simply labeled dog. A child can play alone or multiple children can play together but this game isn't about winning. To play, choose six cards and place them in the six slots of the soft green pose block. Then roll both of the included blocks. One block will show which pose to do, and the other shows how many seconds to hold the pose for. The times correspond to the included 15, 30 and 45-second sand timers, and are color coordinated for easy matching. Players must try to do the pose for amount of the time shown. Most of the poses are easy enough for preschoolers, and the fun colorful graphics make it appealing to play. Even 15 seconds can seem like a long time to a 3 year old but it offers a nice challenge and a great way to get little bodies moving.
