Dobble The Gruffalo Game Reviews

Product Tested By Cathryn Bland – Phoebe 4 Years

Cathryn Awarded The Dobble The Gruffalo Game 5/5

We thought it was a really sweet little tin with the game in. Phoebe really enjoyed opening it and finding the cards inside. Perfect size for her little hands. We loved it! Easy enough for us adults and Phoebe picked it up after a few games. Changing games took a few goes for Phoebe to get the hang of, but her 7 year old cousin loved it! It’s easy enough to remember you’re matching symbols and we liked that you could play different variations. Good concept to develop skills. Really easy to read and understand instructions. No issues with wording and the illustrations are clear. Phoebe struggled a little initially, but with plenty of practice rounds and explaining, it didn’t take her long to figure it out. The practice rounds were just as fun as playing the game. Although her older cousin had no problem picking it up. My daughter absolutely loved this game, even when she didn’t know what she was doing, the cards and pictures are very clear and easy for her to handle. Phoebe played mainly with family and we all thoroughly enjoyed. This definitely helped her improve her observation skills. She has even taken to using her skills while we’re out and about, matching things together and finding the relation between things. Lovely illustrations on the cards, very clear and as expected exactly as they are in the books. She recognised the pictures straight away. We’ve played it around 3 times a week and sometimes for around half an hour to an hour.  we love the little tin the game comes in. She carries it around easily and the lid is secure so no card spills! Phoebe. mainly enjoyed the pictures and the games that involved matching them. This is really good quality. For the amount of different games and other things you can do with the cards, it’s definitely value for money. We’ve enjoyed playing with the cards together with the Gruffalo book. We would buy this game.  It is an easy game that is easy to store and transport. It teaches a good few skills that are important and helps with development. We already have recommended. Phoebe has an older cousin who really enjoyed playing with them. Definitely a 5 for value, entertainment and ease of use. Apart from Phoebe taking time to understand, which is more an age thing, the game is fantastic. The concept is really good, it teaches them new skills and helps to improve concentration. We had a lot of fun playing the different games and liked that you can use the cards for more than just 1 thing. Phoebe loved playing the games with her older cousin and they played it well with little guidance from myself, which showed how easy it is for them to play. It’s a fast paced game and I loved the fact that I could see her brain ticking while she was playing. It definitely had her thinking and using her brain. Even though we don’t move much while playing, it still seems to burn energy, which is obviously a positive. We loved it! Cathryn Bland – Phoebe 4 Years
