Wizarday and the Two Tuba Switch are highly evaluated by professionals. Below are just a few of the reviews we have received.
" Recently, I finished working on a game that had an interesting mechanic that I haven`t seen before. The game is called The Four Rooms and it`s bundled in the Wizarday board game from ToysNTayls. The Four Rooms is a game that helps build communication within families. It`s tense and funny, with players laughing and shouting and sometimes even trying to distract each other. From a designer`s perspective, it`s even better, as the thinking that each player is doing is exactly what the game designers are looking for. Their goal was to get families thinking about the daily routine in a new way. That`s exactly what players are doing, but in a seriously fun and engaging way."

"Wizarday is a story for the entire family that humorously illustrates the role of routine, respect and communication within the home environment." (M. J. Saunders, Director of the Banyan Schools, Fairfield, New Jersey Aug. 2011).

"Many health related problems may be prevented or resolved by following a proper daily routine. These include nutritional issues, sleep disorders and academic challenges based on conditions such as Attention Deficit Disorder.
Wizarday combines a wonderful set of tools that help children and parents implement such a daily routine, both at home and in a clinical setting."

"Having 4 children of my own, now grown, we did use routine charts to make sure important things got done, especially music practice and homework. I wish Wizarday was written back then, as I could of incorporated some of these great ideas. Wizarday, in its own niche and category gets a 5 star rating. I give this book two thumbs up!" (R. Fischer, American Chronicle Jan. 2011)
"Scheduled around a ghostly holiday, the events of Wizarday lead to fun-filled games and routine - related deals that somehow lead to smooth operations of daily routines and increased family harmony. How does all this work? It really is best to read the book, besides, it is more fun that way!......Parents of preadolescents will love Wizarday but they may have to wait their turn to read it." (Midwest Book Review Dec. 2010).
