This
looked very bright and attractive with Gruffalo on the front so my son loved it
immediately. Packaging makes it easy to
take on car journeys etc. and just pop into handbag and very bright/ colourful-
also separates the two games. The
concept of the game is easy to follow and understand. My son also got to grips with this game very
quickly. Some of the words were perhaps
a bit too complex. For example lake as my son uses the pictures to help guess
the word too and he would say pond or water.
This was a good game and certainly kept my son’s attention and helped
with imagination. This game really did
help with development, recognition, words, word building, counting and
patience. My son would lose interest
after a long period of time but a quick 5 min game is fine. I sometimes only played with half the cards. The quality is very good. Represents good value for money. I would purchase this and highly
recommend. Easy to play and kept my son
entertained- fun for all! Katie Prince –

When
this arrived the cards looked good quality and brightly coloured. Packaging stands out as bright and catches
your attention. I had to read the
instructions several times before I could even begin to explain to my 5 year
old. When playing the game it was quite simple and the game finished very
quickly. This game required us giving
Freya a lot of help when playing the game.The age is not appropriate, my
rather intelligent 5 year old struggled and once playing the game was over
pretty quickly. The game is fun to play
but it doesn’t last very long. It’s a great game for a few minutes of down
time. My daughter did learn new rhyming
words. Some of the games were simple
enough for my daughter to play but did not hold her attention for long. We used these cards to play snap and pairing
games. The quality of the cards is great
as they are thicker than normal playing cards and less likely to bend easy.
This does represent good value for money.
Overall we are quite happy with the game. It offers a quick spurt of
entertainment. It isn’t something I
usually buy and would make a great gift for Christmas or birthday. I would recommend. We had great fun playing this game and it was
a good time to bond. Jodie Fisher –

I
had previously considered buying this game, so I was pleased to receive it. I
had high expectations. I liked the box
it came in – it was compact and attractive. Having played the game, I think
there should be two different places to put the two different types of
cards. The concept of the game is
straightforward although I think the Gruffalo tradable card was confusing and
unnecessary. It was also confusing that some of the cards are needed for some games
and others for other games. It was annoying to have to separate them every time
we played as they invariably ended up mixed together. We have played card games before so they
found it straightforward once we stopped using the Gruffalo card. They just
about understood the Mouse card concept.
I thought the instructions were quite wordy and thought that the text
could be in larger font or spaced out more. It was good that the rhyming cards
were also the same colour, this meant non-readers couldjoin in. They enjoyed playing it and kept their
attention, although on the occasions that we played it they didn’t ask to play
again straight after as they do with some games. It helped with colour recognition, reading,
taking turns. I thought the writing on the cards should have been in standard
case rather than all capitals as most preschool children are encouraged to
learn lower case letters first. The
choice of games is good, although the one we played the most was the rhyming
one. My son grouped the cards together
by colour, then spread them out on the floor and chose his favourite
animal/picture from each group. Nice
quality cards with vibrant pictures.
Good value as offers a variety of games to play. I like – clear pictures and the fact that non-readers
can join in by matching cards by colours. I dislike- the fact that the two types of
cards are stored together- it is annoying to have to separate them. The
instructions seemed unnecessarily long and wordy – the Gruffalo card concept it
not needed. This game is good but there
are better card games available. Well-made game linked
to a favourite book, but could be improved.Lucy Jenkins – Tom 4 Years
