We got sucked into buying our son a mini iPad, but have since stashed it on top of the fridge and replaced it with tangible manipulatives. It is so great watching him move the pieces around and watching the wheels in his head turn. Children need to know how to use scissors, put together puzzles, and get dirty!

I love to play scrabble but the messy tiles all over especially if the board gets bumped. I remember to this day that one year Santa brought me a scrabble game. It was a larger board, but it had all tile lock AND it was on a base that made it able to turn so each player could look straight on. I had that game board for probably20 years. We have moved 3x while building our new house and I am pretty sure it has gotten lost in the transitions, I will miss that board but this will be nice to play on with the lock in tiles.

We love this game, I bought this game for my 12 yr old daughter at Christmas time and we all love it. The board and gems are beautifully colored but more importantly the strategical action of the game is intense. Every move has to be thought out. Great game of strategy for people not fans of war games.

Arrived as expected. I loved this game as a kid and now I get to play it with my kids. It is a simple and easy game to play and teach.

I played this game with my 9 year old granddaughter on Christmas Day and while it did require some good critical thinking skills, it was slow moving for her to wait while I went through the "steps" of finding out "who dunnit" and why. Maybe a time limit for each guess would speed up the action...I still think that even with all the electronic games available, a family box game does have a place in family activities.

This set is made of sandstone and uniquely old world. The pieces are very nicely carved and the board very full of color. You do have to be gentle when moving the board around as the pieces are prone to not stand stay upright as they are not bottom weighted. The workmanship is amazing!

This is a box of 200 "planks" of wood. Nothing else. No prefabricated anything just 200 pieces of wood. You stack them very carefully in whatever arrangement you want and then roll a ball down your "contraption." It really is very boring to most people and requires a patience not found in my grandchildren who I bought it for. They played with it for 5 minutes and moved on to other christmas gifts, never to return to it. Like most toys given to children these days, it wasn't electronic so it is doesn't keep their attention...
