Card Games - Educational / Recreational Play

Befuzzled - a FunQ Games product
Induction Certificate Number: 74020110506-501 X Mark image which depicts the product does not have an evaluation report summary available. Rating:
Evaluation Report Summary - (in development) MSRP: $13.99 USD
Recipient of:
The Toy Man® Award of Excellence The Toy Man® Recommends...™ Award
The Toy Man® eChoice™ Award


Befuzzled is a game which encourages people to have some good old-fashioned fun. The simple concept of taking the correct action based on a flipped card becomes surprisingly challenging when the game is played. Befuzzled is high-energy but not fast-paced. Players stay on edge anticipating the flip of the next card as they try to be the first to act.

The action can become quite hilarious with this game with the structure of the game being somewhat similar to playing the odds with Bingo, poker, or similar type of game. Befuzzled game play is a matter of mathematical probabilities which makes the game more enjoyable with the odds of the same exact game being played twice being quite limited to almost none.

The Toy Man® eChoice™ Award


Perfect Stride is an exciting horse-themed card game for 2 - 4 players ages 8 and up. Players are riders who partner up with a horse of their choosing for a high-speed race across the countryside over a hidden course of jumps. Riders collect ribbons with each successful jump as they race toward the finish line. The rider with the most ribbon points wins the game.

In addition to being fun to play, Perfect Stride also offers educational opportunities that can assist with child development. It's a great game that encourages children to read, do addition and subtraction and engage in problem-solving through logical thinking. It also promotes personal bests as well as social skills development through player interaction. There is a lot to take in at first glance yet looks can be so deceiving. Are your ready? The first race starts soon!

About Our About Our Evaluation Report Summaries

With the fast paced change in the industry and buying habits today, we have chosen to introduce a new feature for our New Inductees. Due to the ratio of product passing our evaluation in comparison with the large volume of products being submitted each month, new post-induction process feature is needed.

If a product has been inducted, yet the product evaluation summary has not yet been posted, a company now has three options to consider;
  1. Do nothing but relish in the fact of their product(s) having passed our strict evaluation standards.
  2. Activate a license immediately for unlimited use of our Seal of Approval and any of our exclusive awards to which they are entitled.
    The licensing period will not begin officially until the actual product evaluation summary has been posted. Product evaluation summary is published within a maximum of 30 business days or sooner.

    Example: Company A's product is inducted on January 11, yet the product evaluation summary for it is not posted until February 1. Although the company activated their license on January 11, the one year licensing period paid for does not begin until February 1. All time between the Induction Date and the actual Posting Date is free of charge.

  3. Activate license same date as posting of product evaluation summary.
  4. If a product title or certificate number has a green check mark, (ie; An image of a green checkmark for products with an active Toy Man Seal of Approval license.), next to it, this signifies that the product has an active Toy Man Seal of Approval license and product evaluation summary for reading.
