We loved it! The colourful nature of the boxing and the characters on the box really got little girl intrigued and eager to play! The concept is good, it’s a great idea for getting children into learning without them realising! The instructions were quite difficult to get your head around, they weren’t very clear and left it somewhat open to interpretation. My little one didn’t really understand how to play the game, but she didn’t understand the concept. She is at the lower end of the age range though and did still enjoy playing, albeit her own interpretation of the game. My daughter did not really understands spinning the carousel to form the picture on her token. However, she did enjoy deciding which character she was going for and trying to create this by spinning using different techniques. My daughter really enjoyed matching the characters and found this the best part of the game. This game did keep her entertained. She was so excited to get each part of the character she chose, this is what kept her engaged in the activity and excited with every spin! We only tried the spinning game, given my little one didn’t really understand the concept we stuck with the character matching. We will try the other section when she is a little older. This was enjoyed buy all as my daughter has played this game with her big sister and cousin (both aged 10) as well as myself, her dad and auntie on different occasions. Everyone spoke positively about the game and mentioned what a great idea it is. This is currently her game of choice and asks to play this regularly. Absolutely helps promote early cognitive skills and very educational. She likes to match the characters of her choice and decided how to spin each section in a different way to secure her goal! I liked the fact it entertained my daughter for so long. Usually she loses interest in games but this one keeps her interest for long periods of time until she has completed her goals. I do agree the age suitability is ideal. Although she didn’t fully understand the concept or how to play the game she is on the lower end of the age scale, as she was 5 in April she did still really enjoy playing the game and does choose this above other games in her collection. This is very good value for money. The quality is great, I was initially worried that it would break/bend easily given the technique required however, it is durable and good quality materials meaning that even though it has been played with a number of times it’s still the quality it was when we received it. I would buy this game for all the reasons outlined above. I would recommend and I already have. The game is great, the quality of the materials used to make the game are of good quality and it kept my little one engaged and excited for the duration of the game and beyond! However, given she is on the lower end of the age scale she wasn’t able to play the game how you are instructed to do so. Katie Ramskill – Annie 5 Years

It looked like an appealing game. The box design was colourful and playful, with some of the characters on show. The name ‘let’s learn’ also added to the appeal as indicated it was educational. I liked the simplicity of it and that it enabled the child to engage as much as the parent, if not more (i.e. it seems quite child led). I also like that there’s 2 themes to the game so it has variety. The instructions were easy to understand, and I liked the ‘tips for parents’ section that gave a description of what the game achieves skills-wise. It was appropriate for my child’s age and he understood it well. He loved the motion and active involvement in the game, and the fun of the picture mismatching. He enjoyed matching the characters. This did keep him entertained. He wanted to play both sides and played it several times. It was a game he went back to. He played with us his parents and it was fun to join in as a parent. This was played once a week. This is a good educational game. The observational and matching skills are definitely promoted by this game. My son liked the characters and ease at which he could understand the rules and lead the play. I felt that it was quite a child-led game which I liked, and that it wasn’t heavily made out of plastic! My child understood the game and was able to engage with it, but I also feel like he’d be able to play with other children at an older age (6-8). I think it’s a great game but I would have been pushed to pay £25 for it. I would think £18-£20 would be more reasonable. All the pieces seem sturdy but I like that it isn’t all made out of plastic. The boxing and design also made it seem of high quality. I would buy this if the price was slightly lower. I enjoyed watching my son engage with it. Yes, I would possibly recommend based on my son’s response to it. Overall, I think it was a fun and playful game that was well suited to a 5 year old. My son really enjoyed playing this game, and the variations of it. The packaging was initially appealing, and the inside of it was equally so, with the cute playroom background that was a nice addition when opening the box. The instructions were simple and clear, and easy enough to follow, leading to a seamless process of putting the game together to play. Pippa Selby-Morris – Casey 5 Years

This was well packaged and eye catching colours. Seemed a good concept and son was excited to try it. The instructions were a bit wordy. My son did not overly understand the game. I had to explain in simple terms but he understood. Harley was not that bothered spinning the carousel to form the picture on his token (my 3 year old enjoyed it). He did have a go at matching the characters but was not in a rush to continue. For my son this was not a game he was drawn too and would not play for long. We did try both games but found the connections flimsy so when we swapped games – the game would fall apart. This was played with all the family and his little sister too. My son did not play with this as much as I expected. I had to suggest it rather than him pick to play it and I had to play it with him to engage him in the game. It does help promote early cognitive skills. My son enjoyed spinning the carousel the most. I liked the concept of the game. I personally would say this game would be ideal for 4-7 years. I would have been disappointed spending that amount with the lack of interest my son showed in the game. Some really good elements – as in details and colours and things but the yellow connectors were very flimsy. I would not buy this as did not appeal to my son. I also think it is expensive for what it is. Game looked appealing, but was actually flimsy. Child not as engaged as expected and I had to encourage my son to get it out after the first time.

I would recommend and I already have. The game is great, the quality of the materials used to make the game are of good quality and it kept my little one engaged and excited for the duration of the game and beyond! However, given she is on the lower end of the age scale she wasn’t able to play the game how you are instructed to do so.
