Product description

Animal Yahtzee is a charming game for children ages 3 years and up. You will love the colorful tin case (perfect for storage and travel) and child-friendly design of the dice. Counting animals on the dice is undoubtedly more fun for young children than counting dots on traditional dice! Roll the dice, count how many of each animals are face up and add up the points. Whoever has the most points at the end wins! Play with 2 - 4 players.

We love Animal Yahtzee & we haveone. It was a present we regularly bought for children once they became numerate, approx 4yrs+. SADLY IT SEEMS TO BE OUT OF STOCK/ PRODUCTION. DON'T KNOW WHY AS IT IS SUCH A GOOD GAME FOR YOUNG CHILDREN & HELPS THEM WITH THEIR COUNTING & NUMERACY SKILLS.

This toy is ok in some respects, it is quite a good version of yahtzee using animals rather than numbers. As a game I really like yahtzee for children it involves counting and working out probablity, so it is a fun and educational game.

However, the tin is absolutely tiny, with four very small pencils, a small pad for score keeping, and five dice that are loose and have therefore rolled around with the pencils and are covered in gray marks and are look really grimy, old and battered. The dice could easily have been kept in a plastic packet, as could the pencils. I suppose it would make a good travel toy in this respect, but this is not what it is advertised as. If it was called Travel Animal Yahtzee I think it would be a much fairer description.

5.0 out of 5 stars another great product from HABA 23 Jan. 2009
By The Green Turtle - Published on Amazon.com

I have purchased a couple of products from HABA and bought this one for the following reasons:

Durable and efficient packing - I have the sugar cubes and tea bag set, and now this Yahtzee set made by HABA. All three come in a cute and space saving tin - enough space to accommodate the toy and no more. As children, my siblings and I would inevitable crush the cardboard boxes that held our favorite games. The cute little tin that holds this game probably won't suffer that same fate.

Ecological design - a stretch in descriptor, perhaps, but if you own conventional games sold in cardboard boxes, you'll probably agree that the packaging, boxes and accessories are made in excess of the actual need to accommodate the game, creating unnecessary waste. This little game is self contained in the container used to shake the dice - including the score cards and pencils. Plus, the dice are wooden, not plastic.

Its not made in China - I can't vouch for the origin of all HABA toys but, this particular little gem is still made in Germany.
5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Travel-Size Game That Helps Teach Counting 27 Feb. 2012

My 5 1/2-year-old daughter, who doesn't really want to bother with numbers, loves to play this game. The animals are more interesting to her than the dots on regular dice. She knows how to fill out the point sheet by herself after only playing a few times. And she also quickly learned the strategy of first filling in the more difficult patterns. She is learning pattern recognition, counting, and strategy all without being turned off by those intimidating numbers. The canister is very small, so it will travel well for a quick game while waiting for dinner at a restaurant. We are giving this to all of our friends who are turning 6 this year!

The game itself is wonderful. It's a great way for me to share a game I love with my daughter, who's 5. She's not really able to handle the scoring part of it herself, and I'm sure it will take her awhile to completely grasp the flow of the game, but it was definitely easier for her to understand than the adult version of the game.

One complaint about this is that the dice and pencils should have been packaged somehow that the lead didn't get all over the inside of the tin and all over the dice and score tablet. The dice kind of got beaten up a little in transit, and they had lead shading all over them from the pencils. Everything was shipped loose inside the tin.

First of all, I almost bought this item on another website but thought to check Amazon first. It was $7 cheaper on Amazon and free shipping! The game is adorable! My little 3 1/2 yr old nephew loved it! I enjoyed a game or two myself, and I'm old!!! It's a little game for all ages! And because it comes in a can, it's very easy to store it away when not in use. I would recommend this game.
4.0 out of 5 stars Cute but silly scoring 21 May 2010
By elenateresa - Published on Amazon.com

Cute game, wish the pencils came in a plastic sleeve. The scoring is silly. A three of a kind should be worth three points at least but it's worth two. Similarly, four of a kind is worth three points. I think this is silly but the kids enjoy the game and we let them score for the number of dice the play uses except for a "yahtzee", we score 10 points like the score sheet indicates.
