We love dominoes in this house. It's a good, fun, easy to learn family game. Our son picked it up in no time and he was only three years old. The domino pieces are nice and chunky cardboard (but don't let any babies suck them as they deteriote!) with bright pictures. Any Thomas fans will recognise the carriage characters immediately. Dominoes helps teach pattern recognition, turntaking, sharing, counting and so on. Highly recommended.
