Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

The classic children's game Colorama is a highly enjoyable introduction to colours and shapes. The game is for children in the 3-8 years age group and can be played by one to six players. It comes complete with all playing parts--a brightly coloured game board, 40 game pieces in four different colours and five different shapes, one colour dice, one shaped dice and a full set of playing instructions.

The game is played by arranging the game pieces according to colour and shape and placing them in the appropriate fields on the game board. There are four different versions of the game to suit all the ages in the group, starting with a game for younger children to help them recognise the colours and shapes of the game pieces. The players take turns placing the game pieces on the game board in the field, which matches them in colour and shape (eg: a round yellow piece is placed in a round yellow field on the board). The game is over when all the fields on the board have been covered. There are no winners or losers--so, no tears! The games increase in difficulty and competitiveness for the older children. Game 2 helps the players to get to know the dice; games 3 and 4 are the full Colorama games where there is a winner.

No reading or number skills are required--all the games are played by arranging the pieces according to colour and shape. Colorama is an excellent learning game that practices dexterity and logical thinking--ideal for playschools as well as the home! --Ben King

Note: not suitable for children under 3 years of age because of small pieces.

    still playing colorama with my now nearly 7 year old- been playing it since he was three!

    about 10-15minutes long it teaches wee ones their shapes and colours- and as they get older, just a game you want to win!

    Shapes, Colors and Dice - review of "Colorama" 2 Mar. 2006
    By aaa-Pam - Published on Amazon.com
    This is a pretty cute game that can be played on three levels. There are 5 different shaped pieces (circle, square, triangle, hexagon, trapezoid) in 4 different colors (red, green, blue, yellow). In addition there is a gameboard and two special dice (one die with colors, the other shows shapes).

    The instructions that came with our game are a little different from those listed here. In our version you take the all of the pieces and put them in their proper places on the board. Then you begin play, removing the pieces to put them besides you. (We only play version 2 and 3).

    In Version 2, you roll the shapes-die and then remove whatever shape that was rolled. In Version 3, you roll both the shape-die *and* the color-die, so that you remove the shape from the board that corresponds to what is shown on both dice.

    I agree with one of the other reviewers that if you play the 'entire board' that the game can take much longer than the normal 3 year-old can stand. However we solved that by merely playing with half the board.

    Three Stars. [C+]. Teaches colors and shapes: either one at a time or together. Teaches small children to take turns. My 3, now 4 year-old son enjoys this game though it's not about the learning now, as much as it is about learning to take turns.

    One of my favorite games 30 Mar. 2004

    This is a fantastic game. As a teacher it is a great tool for teaching shapes, colors, and attributes. There are three ways to play this game depending on the level of the players. This has also been a great game at home with our own child.

    Best preschool game I have found 26 Dec. 2008
    By Christine C. Gardner - Published on Amazon.com
    Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
    I rarely review, but I wanted to sing the praises of this game. I often play this game with my 3- and 4-year-old. The game can take a long time, but each turn is relatively short and we have fun "helping" each other, especially help for my 3-year-old remembering the color or shape, or finding the correct piece. To pass the time between turns, we create imaginary items out of our pieces, like houses, people or trucks. And at the end, we each count our own pieces for another dimension of learning.

    We tweaked it a bit so a double clown roll lets us pick TWO of any piece, so we always do some extra cheering when we get the coveted double clown roll.

    I keep searching for a game that is as entertaining for both my kids and me. But for now, we return to this game over and over again.

    Great concept but slow moving 4 Jan. 2006
    By Mom of three - Published on Amazon.com
    My then 3 year old son found this game to be boring and we never completed a round. At age four he is likewise bored. My daughter probably would have enjoyed it at that age, but she possessed more patience.

    shapes and colors 4 April 2007
    By Aisha Shareef - Published on Amazon.com
    A great toy to teach little ones shapes and colors. No reading required. My son got it for his second birthday and still enjoys playing it. There are only 5 shapes and 4 colors, which is probably the only limitation of the game. My son learned the shapes and colors within a week so it would have been nice to have more variety. Otherwise a really nice first game.
