This is a great and fun game for all of the family. My 5 year old son has difficulty with his spacial awareness,concentration and motor control... As well as multitasking! This game has helped to improve his balance and concentration skills in a fun and entertaining way. The stands for the cards are not very durable but other than that I would recommend this game.

HASH(0x980cbed0) out of 5 stars Disappointed 23 July 2010
By Nick Borgmeyer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I ordered this game to use at work, since I am a pediatric physical therapist. I was very disappointed! The quality of the game is greatly lacking. Upon taking the game out of the box the first time, several of the stands for the cards were broken. It only took one attempt to set up the cards and several more stands broke. Also, the bags of feed, which are bean bags, are quite small and not appropriate for the age range to balance successfully. Additionally, the die with pictures on it was already beginning to peel the stickers off. I have come to expect great things from Fat Brain Toys and this was a huge turn off. Hopefully they will make some changes before they attempt to market this game again!

HASH(0x980a5c00) out of 5 stars All family fun 27 Dec. 2010
By Busy Mom - Published on Amazon.com
We received this as a gift for christmas. What a RIOT!! The whole family got in on it. I like that is requires a bit of physical work, not one of those games were you just sit. My 3 and 5 year old did great, laughed ourselves silly all the way through. Didn't really follow the directions to a T. It was just plain FUN! The last reviewer was right, the stand holders come loose, a little glue and no big deal.

HASH(0x9902021c) out of 5 stars Good, fun game for the whole family 29 Dec. 2013
By Pizor - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this game for my 6 year old who has trouble looking at pictures and copying the actions so I thought this would be a fun way to exercise that. First, another reviewer commented on how several stands broke easily and how the stickers on the dice were peeling off when it arrived. You must've received a bad box and I would return it. Mine came in excellent shape. The stands are extremely thick and durable plastic. I was at first disappointed to see that when the large pigeon cards slot into the stands, they're easily removed, but then I realized that was done intentionally. Usually when my kids slot in this type of card, it starts to damage the base of the card by bending it or peeling the picture up. These easily fit in and out of the stands which means the cards don't get damaged and that they all fit back in the box easily when it's time to clean up. The only downside is that if you want to move the cards around and try to pick them up, they come out of the stand, but that shouldn't be a problem since there's no reason to move them around while playing the game.

The bean bags are made of heavy duty fabric and are of very high quality. They are small, probably about 2" x 2". My guess is that they are small enough to help younger kids balance them on their head, hands, feet or shoulders. Maybe a larger bag would flop over or be harder to balance? If this is really a problem, you can always swap these bags out for something bigger. I played with my 6 and 10 year old who weren't bothered by the size.

The dice, at first glance, seemed a little weird looking. They're larger, over sized foam dice with pictures glued on them. At first I thought they looked kind of cheap, but after playing with them I realized they were perfectly fine and worked well. My only thought was that since they were made of foam, if you have a kid who likes to pick at things, this could be an easy target, otherwise I had no complaints.

So what about the game itself? It made me think of a fun way to do yoga, actually. We lined all 12 pigeon cards in a row, then took turns rolling the dice to find out how long we needed to hold the pose and where we needed to balance our bean bag. There are two other options on the dice where you can choose where to put the bean bag but you either have to say, "tweet tweet, chirp chirp" while holding your pose or the other players try to distract you by pretending to wave butterflies in your face. That was my kids' favorite thing to roll. You can hold your pose for 3, 5, 7 or 10 seconds but there are options to double or triple the time to make the game harder. Surprisingly, some of the poses were harder than I thought they'd be. All in all, it was a lot of fun and got everyone up off their bums, which is always a good thing. I wasn't sure how my 10 year old would like the game (I thought she might think it was babyish), but since she's really into yoga, she really enjoyed it. Everyone was laughing and having a great time. The rules are fairly lose, so we let the kids try one pose as many times as they wanted in order to get it right. How can a parent say no to their kid asking to try harder or do better?

As for my son who I actually bought the game for, he was a little hesitant to give it a try since he knew it would be hard for him. But I think when he saw his twin brother and the rest of us having so much fun, he decided to give it a try. I had to help him a bit more to look at the pigeon card and see exactly what he needed to do to replicate the picture, but once he figured out the image, he enjoyed copying it. It was definitely a great game for him, but the plus was that his brother and sister also enjoyed it so it didn't make him feel as if he was having a physical therapy lesson, but instead was playing a fun family game.

HASH(0x9848beac) out of 5 stars Tons of fun for kids and adults!! 21 Dec. 2010

There were six of us playing ages four - fifty four and all we did was laugh! Buy this you won't be sorry - I've order more for gifts. As the previous reviewer stated the stands need to be reglued not worth complaing about, a super simple fix.

HASH(0x980a9a44) out of 5 stars Boring if you have good balance 13 May 2013
By Kara Beranich - Published on Amazon.com
Played this game with my 5, 8, and 10 year olds. They have good balance and so the poses weren't challenging. It just became a matter of counting down while they stood there. This would be more fun for players that need to work on balance.
