Our testers loved the Disney Frozen images of these Spot It! cards. Like the original Spot It! Junior game, this is a great eye-spy card game for younger kids! The deck is structured the same way, with 31 cards each featuring six images on it. And like other Spot It! games, there is always exactly one - and only one - matching picture with any other card in the deck. It's an excellent design that lends itself to some interesting games. It's basically themed version of the original Spot It! Junior games - in fact, the included booklet has rules for the three 4+ games described in the original Spot It! Junior game. So we're not really sure why the manufacturer suggests this game for for three year olds, especially as the cards themselves re actually smaller. Our younger testers did in fact find the game a little too challenging to play easily. Great game, but we recommend it for ages 4+.
WHAT THE KIDS SAY
I like matching the cards. I only like the characters on the cards but it's too hard to play because there's too much on the cards. It's too hard to find.
You don't play the game like that. I will show you how it is done. Look for all the hats, etc
Yes! I won!
This game is fun, the cards are nice but Logan (M3) didn't play properly!
This is like the letter one but with numbers. I like it too and I know all the numbers even when they are upside down.
WHAT ADULTS THINK
F (almost 4) and F6 enjoyed it but it was a little easy for F6. F4 really enjoyed the matching game which is a new concept for her. She learned quickly how to play although sometimes, it would take her a little while to find the match. F6 was able to match very quickly. They decided to take turns finding the match to give F4 more time. She liked the Frozen Olaf theme too but I think she would have enjoyed it, even if it was just regular shapes/numbers. They played with this game daily so it would have long term appeal. Like that cards come in its own tin so that it is handy for storage when not in play. Compact size so easy to take along. The cards were durable enough for children aged 3+. Good for younger children to develop matching/scanning skills and for identifying shapes/numbers.
The kids (M3, F5) love having their own unique card game, made for them. There's a variety of ways to play the cards making a new game every time! My 5 year old enjoys the competition and thrill of winning and tries to be faster every time. For my 3 year old, the game is a great teaching tool for learning letters and numbers, he quickly learns to match the symbols and is having fun while learning! And it packs up small and is the perfect game for travel to cottage!
It's an excellent game, there is variety and it can be a lot of fun. The small container is perfect and the circle shape of the cards is fun and different. It's just too much siting and talking for my active 5 year old boy. I think girls might enjoy it more (my 2.5 year old daughter certainly does). But for a boy near the top of the age recommendation, I give this a miss.
The toy can handle a lot. In In other words, it is durable, very bright colours. I enjoyed the toy, I think more than my daughter (3) did. She didn't want to follow the games instructions and played her own way..
The form factor and the simplicity of the game appeals to me. I love that it is educational and simple. Easy to bring to the cottage and on camping trips too as it is so neat and small (with so many different games one can play with it).
My 3.5 yr old daughter initially loved the game because it had Olaf on it. However, since we don't have any way for her to compete against someone her own age she was not interested in playing again. She was able to match the symbols easily, but the numbers were a little more difficult. I really like the vibrant colours and the tin the cards come in.
