5.0 out of 5 stars Just like I remembered, 6 May 2010
This review is from: The House That Jack Built (Toy)
I have been looking for this game everywhere, and it was so simple, I often thought about making my own version when I had kids, as my own well loved copy got lost somewhere (when my parent's ripped up their carpets to get slate flooring they found a green window piece from it, and it was easily recognisable). But my clever mum fpound it on Amazon and had it delivered to my Aunt's house to bring when she fcame for my sister's wedding (because Amazon won't deliver to Australia, slackers!! HINT HINT Amazon!) This game was iconic where and when I was growing up (Scotland in the mid 70's) but when we moved to australia, nobody had heard of it (and it was getting too easy by then, until my sister was born, and we could play together). It is simple, bright, colourful and great fun. Just roll the dice and get the coresponding house part and put the bits togethere.1-2-3! Sometimes, getting my 3yo son and his 2yo cousin to tkae turns is tricky, but a 3yo can usually understand that the 2yo is just excited to play with the dice and the pieces. Only drawback is that to finish the game you are often left waiting for one colour (lets face it, it's usually the black chimney piece you need) and the kids can lose interest a bit if both have lots of rolls and black doesn't come up! It was as much fun for me to play as it was for them, purely because of the immense nostalgia and fondness I have for the game. Don't recall the old version having garage doors though. Houses in the UK must have changed since, but the old version was amost a picture perfect representation of the house we lived in in Stirling!!!!!
