My kids (ages 3, 5, and 7) all love this game. It’s fun to play and easy to learn. Simply take turns spinning the spinner while trying to fill your tree stump with each color of acorn. (Spinning a 1 or 2 means you get to pick any one or two colors, a sad squirrel means you lose your turn, a stealing squirrel means you get to take someone else’s acorn from their trunk - strategy!, and a wind gust means all the acorns are ‘blown away’ from your own tree trunk). When playing this game, kids learn to take turns, strategize, identify and match colors, and even practice some fine motor skills by using the ‘squirrel grabber’ to pick acorns up from the box. It’s perfect for preschoolers and definitely mom approved. We love it!  

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 sons are 2.5 and 4 years of age and really enjoy this game. It is simple enough that they understand the basic rules and can master the manual dexterity required to play, and also makes them think a little about strategy. You can set it up and teach it in under a minute as well which is always a plus where impatient little ones are concerned. I like that the bottom of the box is effectively the board, it means that the game is all nicely self contained and bits are less likely to go flying everywhere - the shaped box is nice touch.
