Product Review & Giveaway – Les Mess Card Game

About the Product
Les is More, a home organization company, announces the launch of Les Mess card game. The interactive card game is a set of organizing cards that help children get their room and your home organized and clutter-free. The game retails for $19.95 and is available at lesmess.com.

The game is recommended for ages 5-12 and teaches children in a fun way the benefits of cleaning up after themselves. Kids Shuffle the cards, pick one and do what is on the card. Each card has a time limit on it. If you finish in time you get a prize (Mom and Dad do this part), and there are cards with unique prize ideas included that do not bring more clutter into the house.

These organizing cards teach children to put things away, as well as what to keep and what to toss. They will learn through getting organized, how to sort and will create a habit of picking up every day. After all, isn’t teaching our kids how to be organized and clutter-free a part of being a parent…and sometimes learning should be fun too!

Leslie Jacobs, founder of Les is More commented, “Our homes are a reflection of how people feel; if our homes are messy, we feel as if our lives are messy. Les is More was founded on the belief that organization is possible and with the Les Mess card game, it can be a little more fun for kids to jump in and help.”

Also available is Les Mess for couples. This version of the game is a little more intense than the children’s version and also includes blank cards so personal request cards can be made to manage a couple’s personal organizational challenges.

My Take on the Game
This was definitely a unique game and one that made J-Mom and I think as well as Diva-J get involved with gaining a better understanding about the clutter around her (and her room). I would echo what was said about about this being an interactive card game…it makes you talk and work together on going over things that will help your child understand and learn organizational skills.

While we have only played the game a few times so far, I am hoping that this does a great job at helping Diva-J keep her things organized into the future.

So if you are looking for a unique way to teach your child some organizational skills, this is a great, fun alternative that I would recommend!
