My initial impression of this product was that it was compact and small. The packaging was lovely, colourful and good quality. The idea of the game is fantastic especially for me as I home-school my children so this is ideal. Personally I think it was too old for my 4 year old. He understood the idea to a degree but because he cannot read he struggled to do it and lost his concentration after 5 minutes. I do think the age needs to be aimed higher, maybe 6+.  It doesn’t help with his development at present but I am sure when he is old enough it will be fantastic and keep him entertained for hours. At the minute he just looks at the pictures and asks me what things say and uses the words to tell me the alphabet. The quality of this product is brilliant; fun and colourful. The RRP £9.99 is a very good price for this game, very fun educational and once he can understand more this will definitely be at the top of our list to do. I would most definitely buy this again; I think it is fantastic for any child especially if you home-school. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has children. It is a nice exciting, fun product. Excellent quality, reasonable priced and a must for any child. We enjoyed using it but were disappointed we couldn’t play it properly.

I thought this looked great, very pleased it was in a small box and seemed simple enough to get started. It was beautifully packaged; great size for easy storage, lovely images to entice children to play. The concept of the game (to memorise as much of a scene in the time limit before being asked questions regarding the scene) is very straight forward. The only improvement may have been to includethe instructions for 1 player on the outside of the box too (the 2 player instructions are on the outside, both the 1 and 2 player instructions are also on a card on the inside). I had used my common sense on how to adapt for 1 player, but the instructions on the card were well thought through and it’s a shame I hadn’t seen these straight away when explaining to my daughter. Rose did understand the game; it took very little time for her to understand what she should do. The age range is 3 – 103. My daughter is 3 ½ and whilst she understood what she had to do, she did struggle to study the card sufficiently to pick out more than the very obvious parts of the scene (and hence didn’t find the questions that easy). So whilst I think it is age appropriate, perhaps some 3year olds observation skills/patience would be tested. It is certainly playable and even my younger 20 month old son loved just looking at the cards and saying the words he could from the picture (without questions). The game is correctly designed to be 5 to 10 minutes long after which concentration can dwindle, but even when we’d finished the game, Rose just enjoyed laying out and looking at all the cards…so still good fun! I’m sure older children would be able to play the game for much longer and even adults would enjoy this. The game will I’m sure over time develop a child’s concentration and observation skills. The quality is excellent; the tiny quibble would be the piece of corrugated cardboard to separate the cards from the dice/timer is not quite as aesthetically pleasing, but still functional. The game does offer value for money; I would be happy to buy this as a gift at £9.99. I would buy it for a slightly older child or one who enjoys concentrating/observing from 3 years. I would recommend this as it is quick to set-up and play, small to store and fun for all the family. Whilst my daughter’s observation/concentration skills were being very well tested, this can also be a good thing and I’m sure this game will be played time and time again with the whole family. Overall the packaging was great, simple concept to play within minutes, builds observation/concentration skills that are sometimes lacking in children. I would highly recommend it.

I really liked this product when it first arrived. The packaging was lovely, both attractive to adults and children. It was quite small too so can be easily packed away. The concept of the game is brilliant. It was really easy for me to understand in order to explain it all to Milly.  She was completely fine with it too and really enjoyed playing with it. I think the age it is aimed at is fine although younger children will probably not get the full benefits from it but I suppose they will learn too. Milly loved this game; it definitely kept her attention and this is one of the things that she shows when people visit. It definitely helps with their observation and concentration skills. The quality is excellent and is excellent value formoney. I actually thought it would cost more than suggested. I would definitely consider buying this now. I would recommend it to anyone with children as it is a good game that is fun and educational at the same time. We all loved it in our house. Emma Woods – Milly 5 Years
