”This game is such an amazing way to get those critical thinking juices flowing. I’d recommend this game or any of the other wonderful educational items from Smart Games.”Read the Review
We really enjoy this game. When we started my 3 y/o wanted to do the top of the columns first (essentially making them upside down). I had to guide him a bit and reinforce building it from the bottom up. Now he’s doing this independently and very rarely to I have to correct it.
My two-year-old son loves to play with this puzzle. He will request that I get it out! The box contains a three-pronged vertical puzzle board and ten colorful pegs that can be slid onto the board in creative patterns or to copy patterns in the also enclosed puzzle booklet, listed as developmentally appropriate for ages 3 and older. The board and pegs are made of quality wood and pleasing colors and the booklet is spiral bound with a stand-up feature.
My son loves to make his own configurations - still his favorite way to play with the puzzle - but we also work on the booklet together. At two years and four months, with help, he is starting to be able to hold a puzzle piece up to the booklet to "match it," but also requires prompting and help to place it on the correct peg and not slip in his own pieces. :) We definitely still have much enjoyment and learning opportunity to look forward to as he gains the ability to follow the puzzle challenges on his own. I love that it spans such a good age range! I am very satisfied with this quality product.
Real-time update...as I referenced the box to verify my review, my son asked to "play" with the puzzle and placed three pegs in a pattern that correctly followed the booklet challenge he was trying to follow. He then placed some other pegs in his own pattern. :) He is having fun while learning, which is every parent's dream! Highly recommended!!
Games like this are why I choose Timberdoodle. This teaches things I never even thought of teaching. She is learning about differences and loves to point out how different things look at night around our neighborhood. It has even helped her be less afraid of the dark. So simple and yet teaches way more than just following directions on a card. The perfect step up from the caterpillar stacking game!
My 2 year old hates new things so he didn't want to do this at first, but he has gradually decided he likes it! I let him pick the card and I help him figure out what goes next. I'll make a story out of the picture when he needs the extra incentive. He's gotten much faster over the last few months! It's a great introduction to thinking skills and taking directions.
We love this puzzle. It has been used with 2 kids so far and will be handed off to number 3. It is super quality and still in fantastic shape. They both are excited when it comes out!
