EDITOR'S REVIEW

All our tester found it difficult to play this game as intended. But that didn't stop them from making their own rules, or just using the tiles to make their own words. A beautiful eye-catching toy.

WHAT THE KIDS SAY

Making up words was fun, but a bit hard. But I like playing this game. I like the apple bag it came in.

I liked trying to make words, but sometimes it's really hard to think of them so I need help. I liked playing with the tiles and making words without really playing a game.

I like playing with the letters - and Mom and I are practicing my words and sometimes we even do sentences!  It would be better if they also had pictures on them - I have other ones that look like hearts and they have words and pictures on them.

This is a really easy game so I didn't like it so much. I think it would be better if you could put the words wherever, not just at the beginning or end of a word. It's similar to Bananagrams but easier and not as fun.

At first I was frustrated with this game and now I don't really like it because I find it boring.

WHAT ADULTS THINK

Rebecca Y.

We liked this game though it appealed more to my 6 year old than my 7 and 9 year old. We found it too challenging to make words from the last letter only so we would change it up a bit. Great way for early readers to get into word games and to build their vocabulary!

Kim M.

Loved the concept, loved the storage and visual appeal even better, but my 9 year old son has lost interest in playing this game.

Victoria (F8) loved playing with this game and even making up her own rules for it. It has helped her with her spelling and reading. Very portable, and stores away nicely.
