My girls (6&7) love this game. The anticipation of the next question is just so exciting for them. This age group is considered JR. There are different rules here. No blurting out. Instead, they write their answers on paper. They move 4 spaces if the word and spelling is correct and 2 spaces if correct word but incorrectly spelled and 0 spaces if all together wrong. I love that my 6 year old even though her spelling is incorrect still feels like she is super smart for guessing the word correctly. This is a great educational game and gets the kids to think and practice spelling. A game that will last for years. They can grow into the adult version and we can play as a family.
I like that 4 puzzles are contained so nicely in one small box. Our boy/girl twins can take turns and play well together (which is rare ha!). Our twins are 5yo now and do prefer larger puzzles, but this will be great for our 2yo soon.
This comes packaged in a very sturdy tree shaped box that is also used as a game board. It is a favorite game amongst the preschool-aged children I care for. The 3 and 5 year old were able to teach the 2 year old fairly easily how to play the game. Taking turns is not easy, and it was definitely a skill that was learned through this game. They learned matching and counting skills by collecting the correct number or the specific color acorn to the spot on the cute little tree stump. They also develop fine motor skills by spinning the spinner and picking up the acorn with the fun "squirrel squeezer" (their favorite!). Sometimes they have to skip a turn which also helps them develop good sportsmanship. We love this game. I think It would make a good gift for either boy or girl between the ages of 3-7
This puzzle is great for kids, large pieces, easy enough to assemble but still challenging enough to keep them interested. I would think ages 3-7 would find this fun.
