A fun game for families with young children,
This review is from: Squiggle Safari (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
We took this game on a day away with our two children aged for and six. Although the blurb on the page says ages five and upwards it says four and upwards on the packaging. The game consists of a cardboard backing, with a tab that pushes out to hold the included pencil, a spinner and a pad for scribbles. To play you spin the spinner, which lands on one of an enormous number of animal names. You then take your pencil and turn the squiggle on the paper into the animal.
The challenge of the puzzle is not too hard and my four year old was able to do a very passable giraffe and crocodile and include the squiggles on her goes through. My wife, children and I all had two goes each and everyone thought it was good fun, but two goes seemed about enough. We played without any time limit on the turns, and I guess you could include one if you need a bit of competition to make things more interesting. OUr game lasted us for about 15 to 20 minutes as my children took their time. I can imagine if you are stuck in an airport waiting for a plane this is a good way to keep them occupied but it won't do for hours.
Despite the short playing time the cardboard backing was beginning to look frayed and of course the pad of squiggles will run out so it is not going to last much past one holiday trip.
All in all a good game for young children when you are travelling.
