Thumbs Up!

I found these card holders for the kids at Target, and to be honest, I was rather skeptical on how well they'd work, and if they'd be worth the money, but we don't play many card games with the kids because they get too frustrated by handfulls of cards they can't organize and don't want us to see if we help, etc, and it seemed like they'd be worth a try. We love them!! It's not a perfect solution in that if cards get piled too thickly together in one area, you pull one out of the holder and all the ones in the surrounding area come out, too, but my kids have gotten the idea pretty quickly. Also, I can hold the holder with the back to me and adjust their cards without ever seeing a single one, the kids are more able to view the cards in their hands, and we're all MUCH happier by the end of a card game! We give this product a thumbs up.

Great idea! I picked one up while I was at your house but never gave it much thought. I just looked at it and thought it reminded me of a ping pong paddle.

Very cool idea! Lilly and I tried a couple times to play cards, but have the same issue...I'll definately have to get some of those. Thanks for the post!
PS- Your kids are so darn cute, they could be the poster kids for the product!

I totally love that idea! I have little hands, too, and could probably use them myself! Especially when playing games like Uno when you end up with a TON of cards in your hand!
