Love You Lickey the Labrador® comes with a cute, soft and cuddly stuffed Labrador with endearing big eyes, and a children’s book. It’s an interactive, unique and fun family tickle game that parents, grandparents, and other loved ones can play with their little one(s).
HOW THE GAME IS PLAYED: With Lickey in hand, the book is meant to be read to the child. Children discover that Lickey likes to lick, Lickey likes to lick people, Lickey really likes to lick kids, and Lickey really, really likes to lick kids whom Lickey loves. As the pages are turned, loved ones read, “Lickey loves YOU. Lickey loves you a lot. So Lickey is going to lick you a lot because Lickey loves you . . . [turning the page] A lot!” This starts the tickle game! Each turning of the page is a tickle event. “Lickey will lick you . . . [turning the page] ON YOUR TUMMY!” [“Lickey will lick you . . . [turning the page] ON YOUR NOSE! . . . ON YOUR BACK! . . . ON YOUR TOES!”]. Eight body parts get tickled as parents, grandparents and other loved ones play the game with their little one(s). Laughs, memories, anticipation and fun . . . all in one great game!
Consistent with Worthwhile Pursuits’ company vision, on the last three pages of the book, you read these words to your little one: “Lickey licked you a lot because Lickey loves you a lot, but I love you even more . . . [then turning to the last page] A lot more.” It is our vision that every child in America hears those words from a loved one.
MORE BENEFITS OF THE GAME: In the tickle game, families can spend quality time together, have some laughs, make memories, have fun, etc. In addition, for some very young children, the game provides the opportunity for cognitive development and educational value resulting from the parts of the body being tickled. The children’s book is great for early readers. Even older siblings can play the tickle game with their younger siblings. If your little one(s) likes being tickled, no matter their ages, they might love the Love You Lickey the Labrador family tickle game.
As an added bonus, kids can sleep with Lickey year round if they want.
It’s a “3-in-1” product . . . a book, a plush stuffed Labrador and a family game.
