SimplyFun games are designed to connect families through the power of play. Based on the idea of “Building Smarter Kids and Stronger Families,” SimplyFun creates fun, educational games for children and families of all ages to enjoy!
I was first introduced to SimplyFun games a few months ago at a local MOPS meeting. Our featured speaker and SimplyFun Regional Sales Director, Tami Mathis, brought in several different SimplyFun children’s games for us to try. After playing a few of the SimplyFun games, I quickly learned that they were not your average board games…they were better!
Each game that we played offered specific educational benefits, such as reasoning, memory recollection, and creative thinking, to name a few. And the games were so much fun to play! I knew my kids were going to love them.

A short time later, I was given the opportunity to review two SimplyFun games with my kids. The first game was Bee Alert, and it is designed for children ages 5 and up. (This amazing game won the Top Fun Award from Tillywig and a Mom’s Choice Award!).
The key learning opportunities in this game include memory and observation, paying attention, focusing, taking turns, and being patient. My boys had so much fun playing this game that they started referring to it as the “Bee Game,” and they’ve been asking to play it every day!

We also had the opportunity review the “What If” game. This game was a thought-provoking, conversation-starter game that involved asking specific questions in 3 different categories: Safety, Emotions and Social Interactions.
“What If” game
Here’s how we played the game: I would ask each of my children a question and then we would discuss their answers. The questions were straightforward and they encouraged my children to think about how they would respond in certain situations. Here are some of the questions we discussed:
- What if a stranger was following you?
- What if someone fell into the water and they couldn’t swim?
- What if someone asks me to do something that I know is wrong?
- What if I don’t make the team?
- What if someone told me not to tell my parents something?
- What if someone at school doesn’t have a lunch?
The answers my children came up with, and the heartfelt discussions that followed were priceless. We were learning valuable life lessons together, as a family. It was time very well spent!

Tami Mathis, SimplyFun Regional Sales Director
Meet Tami Mathis!
I had asked Tami how she had gotten started with SimplyFun, and what she enjoys most about sharing SimplyFun games with other families. Here’s what she had to say:
“I have been in direct sales since my daughter was a baby. It was a great way for me to be at home with her, but still get out, have some “girl time,” and make some extra money…I love my job because I get to work with some phenomenal people and help them to build their skills and knowledge.
I love the product line because I am able to help families connect, while using our games as a parent resource for building social, emotional, and academic skills in their children.
SimplyFun has a unique opportunity that I don’t see any other direct sales company offering – we bring families together through the power of play! Our games are for all age groups, not just young children. There is something for everyone in our catalog!”
