There is nothing better than a NEW game for game night! We were very excited to receive this gift and my three year old son could not wait to play! My husband, son, and I played this game and we all loved it for many reasons. First impressions: 1. The game comes in a very sturdy box, so there is not chance that the box will get ruined or squished easily. 2. The game is very colorful and detailed and all the game pieces are also sturdy and well made. These things make it enticing for a 3 year old and because it so well made... the pieces won't break easily. 3. I loved how the acorns came in a resealable baggie so the small (but not too small!) pieces can be stored in there. While playing: 1. As an educator, I felt this game was perfect for ages 3+. It worked on fine motor skills, counting, color recognition, taking turns and of course, parents can teach their child how to be a good winner and a good loser, too. 2. My son loved this game! The directions were very easy to understand and he was able to remember what each of the spinner spots represented. Surprisingly, he was ok when an acorn was taken from him or his turn was skipped - because it was just part of the rules! 3. As mentioned above, this game is great for improving fine motor skills. My son had a little trouble working the squirrel (like a tweezer) at first, but after a few turns he got it. Maybe there could be a more defined hand grip on the squirrel. He just couldn't get a comfortable grip at first. But this tiny "con" did not change my 5 star rating! All and all, this game definitely earns 5 stars from my family! It will definitely become part of my "Birthday Gift List" for future friends' parties.
Math Slam is a hit at our house and in my classroom! My daughter (age 5) is enjoying practicing her addition and subtraction fluency using this fun, game. Math Slam allows you to select to practice addition or subtraction at various levels. You can indicate by pressing a button which level you would like to play on. The thing I like most about this product is that during the game, any questions you miss return back to the screen to have more than one opportunity to solve. My students love this product as well and it is perfect for our math center. This would be great for any kid age 5+ who is ready for addition and subtraction.
I bought this game for my 15 year old daughter for a Christmas gift and it's been a hit with our whole family. We try to do "Family Game Night" in our home every Friday evening, if possible. So this game has been a winner and we're ALL learning things about our country in the process.
