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.

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.

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.
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.
