Suspend Physics is a Simple and Fun Game to Play

I first played Suspend Physics from Melissa and Doug with my daughter at a friend's house many months ago. Since we had such a blast playing it, I decided to add it to our significant game collection at home. This game is so much fun to play and can garner the attention and excitement of anyone in the room, even kids, and possibly adults, with short attention spans.

Plan Ahead and Suspend Your Piece

This game is incredibly easy to play. Each player starts with an even number of pieces. The pieces are color-coded, and a die is used to determine what piece may be utilized next. The object of the game is to use one hand to connect your piece to the game board. If you use two hands, you lose your turn, and if you knock yours or another players piece off the structure, you must add the fallen pieces to your pile of connectors. The first person to run out of pieces is declared victorious.

Play by Yourself or Play with a Group

My daughter loves games but is an only child, so usually, when she wants to play a game, I have to play with her. However, with Suspend she can play by herself. Not only does the game help her play by herself, without any electronics I may add, but it also contributes to improving her eye-hand coordination. The game is also fun to play with up to three other people.

Buy Melissa and Doug Toys with Confidence

One of my favorite things about Melissa and Doug toys is that I can buy these toys for my daughter with confidence. Why do you ask? Well, these toys are made from high-quality materials and come with a guarantee that their toys have gone through stringent testing requirements for metals and dyes. While my daughter is well past the age where kids commonly put toys in their mouth, my confidence with Melissa and Doug grew when she was very young and has grown since them. Now, I also like to buy these high-quality toys for my younger nieces and nephews.

I would recommend this game for any child young or old. Since the game is easy to play and doesn't require a player to read to enjoy the game, even very, young kids can get in on the action.
