i have bought a couple of these games as i think they are REALLY effective in Cognitive Stimulation therapy. The puzzle itself is quite tricky at first and quickly becomes addictive! Once you get the hang of things it becomes easier but still challenging enough to entertain. It is a wonderful way of introducing sequencing to children and is light but sturdy so can be held in their lap or set on a table. There are plenty of patterns to follow, printed on good quality wooden cards, and the bright smooth game pieces are easily moved around the game board. A simple idea which is very entertaining and develops a child's mind, or stimulates the mind of a dementia patient. Once you start playing it is hard to stop!

This simple little puzzle is very engaging. I actually use it for clients with dementia as it stimulates their cognitive function very effectively. At first attempt it is quite tricky, and planning the moves to make each pattern is great fun, and a little addictive. It is well made, not too heavy so can be picked up, but sturdy enough to stand on a table. Bright colours to catch the eye, and good quality, well finished wood and paint. Everyone in our house tried it- from 4yrs to 45, and we all enjoyed playing with it. Would highly recommend. Excellent value for such a well crafted toy. Buyers can trust this company to provide an excellent service and product.

I bought this for my 3 and a half year old girl, wanted to find something changelling for her, it's brilliant. The toy is very durable, very educational, the right level for her, not too easy but at the same time it is achievable and brings a lot of joy when the pattern is complete.
