Kids love talking about bodily functions, which is why the Fascinating Facts Human Body Game ($30, LakeshoreLearning.com) is as entertaining as it is educational. Sixty Q&A trivia cards guide kids’ exploration as they delve beneath the skin of a 10-inch torso with removable organs. Great fun in a classroom or a playroom, this anatomical ally helps elementary and middle schoolers alike learn about their own insides.
If you’ve got squeamish kids who might find these parts a little too real, check out the Despicable Me 2 version of Operation ($23, Hasbro.com). This twist on the classic kid surgery game requires players to “operate” on Stuart, one of Gru’s yellow minions, curing silly ailments (“cupcake cavity,” “banana belly”) with those famous beep-tripping tweezers.
