I was looking for something to travel with, even though the box is a little bulky (I actually put every thing in a ziplock bag to travel with on the plane). This was brilliant entertainment and could be played on the fold out plan table. My daughter was engrossed and loved the challenge of remembering and was very proud of herself when she did. At first we didn't use the timer but gradually introduced it to the point where she now insists on it. Hightly recommend for entertainment and education.
