It was not my intention to get this game purely to upset my son, but watching my three year old torture his older brother by 'stealing' his acorns has been one of the best experiences of my entire life. The joy in his little eyes as he watches his brother lose his sht as Sneaky Squirrel takes his acorns. It's genius. Even if he already has the color, the younger brother would rather steal his sibling's acorn than take a color he actually needs from another player. It's honestly the funniest thing in the world. I love this game.
This game is fun, colourful and creative but also excellent for young children to develop game skills of taking turns, spinning the wheel and strategy alongside counting, colours and fine motor skills in using the squirrel shaped tongs to select the coloured acorns.
My daughter is small for her age and has struggled with the tongs but this is also good for encouraging resilience alongside hand strength and by continuing to try she is more confident and we have had to expand her game selection!
For grown ups this game is excellent for reducing chaos of lost bits in that it is self contained and self storing, the box is the game 'board' and everything goes back in it without having to align bits of plastic with inner packaging everytime, just scoop and shut the lid, job done.
Overall, I'm a fan of Learning Resources products despite their higher price you get quality pieces, this was worth the investment for us and is an excellent choice for the preschooler/reception aged child but wil still get value for older primary aged children as its competitive with the forfeit spins and fun overall.
The cardboard logs are sturdy enough though for the price tag and the Learning Resources brand I would have expected plastic ones to longevity. The disappointment for me, and the lost star, is the spinner - it is cardboard so easily bent with little ones enthusiasm, and ours actually came with a curve in the card and spinning arrow itself. Let alone the arrow lands on the same icon each time, if I use both hands to flatten it out on each turn we get more or a spin but it will always stop within the same half of the circle which ruins the game somewhat. I may contact LR to see if we can be sent a new one as the game is unplayable without me sneakily moving the pointer manually, something I don't want to encourage as okay practise whilst playing games!
UPDATE - I did contact Learning Resources UK and they were happy to send out a replacement spinner, happy customer here!
We also bought the card game Raccoon Rumpus at the same time and they have equally enjoyed playing it together.
Great game for teaching children the mechanics of a board game, taking turns and losing to chance! All in all, a great family game and one we will be enjoying for a good while yet. Highly recommended.
