Clarenville, NL – Oikos Game wins the prestigious 2007 Platinum Award. Serena Phillips of The Family Review Magazine & Review Center, a Washington-based organization, explains that the Platinum Award is a mark of distinction, being given only to the highest of quality products reviewed at the Review Center.
Family Review Magazine reviews products for companies worldwide and is a leader in quality, family friendly reviews. Serena states, “Oikos, by Oikos Global [oikosglobal.com] brings to the family game table a tool for helping parents and children talk openly about subjects that are sometimes hard to approach, without such a help.”
She further adds, “Parents are always looking for a way to speak to their children about the pressures they face at school and the many challenges that come in life, yet they struggle to find a good way to help their children open up and truly share honestly. Oikos achieves this by setting the stage for a non-confrontational format for all to share openly, and allows parents to be one step ahead in the parenting game.”
Indeed, Oikos Game is an “emotional intelligence” game that aims to teach kids personal development and emotional skills such as being assertive, problem solving, showing empathy, and dealing with bullies, while having fun in the process. Dr. Gayzelle Meneses-Rayel, co-founder of Oikos Global says that aside from being fun, Oikos Game also encourages kids to read and do simple math during play.
“The Oikos Game is not only enriching to the family circle, it is fun! This is mission critical if we are to use it to its full potential. The makers of this game used great forethought in making an inspiring, enriching and provoking game. We give them 5 up for mission accomplished!” says Serena.
