review by Mombrite
”We are a big fan of gameschooling, and Camelot Jr is one of our favorite puzzle games to keep in our homeschool arsenal. It looks deceptively simple with only 8 wooden blocks, but when you try and beat the challenge, you quickly realize that less is more.”Read the Review
We started playing this right away! My 4 year old daughter loves it and it engages her critical thinking/problem solving. The quality of the pieces are amazing. The puzzles start off easier and the difficulty level progresses; however there are enough puzzles to do over and over that I really don't think my 4 y.o. will memorize the answers (as long as we don't play it every day, lol).
My four year old son really enjoys this game. Prior to this game, he also played Three Little Pigs and Little Red Riding Hood. I don’t know that he has a favorite; he likes them all. He did ask if there was a wordless book, and with this game there was not. His two younger sisters like to play with the blocks and people. Fun all around :(
I am so happy we got this game for her. It is her favorite strategy/ challenge style game right now. The wooden blocks are smooth, brightly painted, and high quality. The challenges get progressively harder, but the concepts build on each other smoothly, so she doesn’t get frustrated. My 4 yo has very little patience and gets frustrated easily, but she is happy to spend time on these problem solving challenges. It has really boosted her sense of confidence and self esteem— she believes she has the power to figure it out on her own and doesn’t ask for help solving the challenges. She is already half way through the book and we have had it about a month.
This is a good puzzle solving activity but is not quite at the right level for my 3 almost 4 yo. She can do it, but it seems like it is not as engaging as other activities that are available. If you have a lot of problem solving games, this may not be a good fit for your family.
We love this awesome critical thinking activity. it is fun and engaging for my 3 and 5 year old. We enjoyed it so much, we bought a 2nd one as a birthday gift for my nephew. I love how it teaches my LO to think differently and adapt. The challenges grow with difficulty and we haven't made it through the entire book yet. Well worth the money.
