This product was given to me to try out with my four boys. They absolutely loved it. We received it Wednesday and my 8 & 11 year olds were up early Thursday morning playing with it before school. My 14 & 6 year olds loved playing it as well. I love how it makes them think quickly and keeps them on their toes as they try to come up with answers to each question before the time runs out. Even my husband and I enjoyed playing it with our boys. It's rare to find a game that's both educational and fun! The product is also durable and can endure being tossed around from boy to boy.
Wonderful word game for family game night. Simple, fun, and entertaining. We had a small struggle with our 7 year old who was screaming into the console, waiting for the "voice" to tell him if he was correct or wrong. Once we explained that each player has the "judgement call" he got concept really fast, with exception of continuing to scream answers out. I took into our car one day to use during traffic. He really had a blast then and it was a great alternative to handing over a cell phone or tablet, turning on a DVD. It was much more engaging! One night my husband and I found ourselves playing after our son fell asleep. One recommendation we be to have a level selection for single player with capability for acknowledging the correct answer/incorrect answer.
As a speech language pathologist in a low income elementary school, I used this game with my 4th and 5th grade language impaired students and they really liked it. These students have trouble with word recall and categorization. They felt as though they were playing against the toy and not each other, which is a positive. This game would be too challenging for my younger students, but the 4th and 5 th graders really enjoyed it.
