6 year old minimun is too young
on 9 January 2011
I got this for Christmas for my 4,soon to be 5 year old ,based on Amazon reviews. I fully agree the 6+ is too old as a guide.
Like all parents, I am wholeheartedly convinced my tot is unique in all ways, and streets ahead of her peers ( ;) ) , but just 10 days after Santa's visit, my lass is well half way through this engaging game. It's a superbly thought out logic challenge....but it does seem 4 year olds can do what the manufacturers aim at a 6 yr old. I'm all for making a child have that all important sense of achievement, but going on how fast my 4 yr old old susses out the puzzles, a 6 yr old will have its folks sending the game back to Santa on Boxing Day.
If a company really wants to sell a Juniour version, they should at least get the target age right. It's a fantastic game, I'll be getting the next version for my girl, but they should get the target age right. My 2 - going-on-3-yr-old will get more out of it. The 6+ guide could've put me ( wrongly ) off , and wastes cash for parents of 6 yr olds who get the game and find their child sails through it in weeks....
