Squirrels Go Nuts Smart Game
Squirrels Go Nuts
What looks like a simple sliding game is anything but simple. Squirrels Go Nuts will have your child sliding the pieces along the grooves of the gameboard trying to avoid dropping their nuts into the wrong hole.
He may begin trying to solve the Squirrels Go Nuts challenges by moving the pieces randomly, but he will soon discover the logic behind the game. By analyzing the position of the holes and acorns, he will discover which squirrel can fill which hole and in which order to move the squirrels. When all the nuts are in a hole the challenge is complete. With easy and more difficult challenges, Squirrels Go Nuts is a fun, attractive, logic building game for the entire family.

My 6 year old son is loving this just as much as the other smart games we own. Have to watch the acorns with the 3 year old around as they are quite small. Great activity that is really enhancing our school year so far!
This has been another winner from SmartGames for our five year old! It is challenging, but not overwhelming, since the puzzles start out with only two squirrels, and then build up in difficulty as you work through the booklet. Like all the SmartGames, it is well-made, and I was pleased to find that the acorns have ball bearings inside to help them not roll across the table or floor when dropped!
This little game is truly a gem. It is definitely easy to understand for a 7-year-old but challenging and addictive for any age! Despite it being a solo game, it is a lot of fun. I have to admit this was my personal favorite of all the games we got for the family this year! Very sturdy pieces too.
My 4 year olds love this game. It is a perfect way to learn problem solving skills while having fun. My girls love that they can set it up themselves.
This game has been a hit with the whole family! We are currently shopping for more Smart Games to add to our collection.
