WHAT ADULTS THINK
My girls, ages 4 and 6, have really enjoyed playing with this toy. They love the elephants and enjoy filling them up with different coloured balls. I really like the way the bottom of the box is a mouse-pad-like material that is perfect as the base for playing this game. The bright colours and great design of the elephants made it a big hit for my kids. My girls really enjoy the elephants and the idea of racing each other to fill them up. The game sort of reminds me of Hungry Hungry Hippo, but it's different enough that my kids feel like it's a totally new concept and have really enjoyed it. As the novelty wore off, my 6 year old lost interest a little bit, but my 4 year old still takes it out fairly regularly to play it by herself. The game says 5+, but I think 4+ is more accurate. My 4 year old had difficulty getting the balls in the elephant the first few times she tried, but she got the hang of it pretty quickly. She definitely enjoyed the game more than anyone else in my family. No safety concerns for kids over the age of 3, but the balls make perfect choking hazard size for little toddlers, so that is definitely a concern for a family with very little kids. Definitely a fun game, but I find it hard to justify spending more than $30 on a toy that kids will outgrow in a couple of years (my 8 year old thought it was babyish and had no interest in playing at all). If someone is looking to spend over $30 for a gift for a kid age 4 or 5, I would definitely recommend this toy. It's totally different than the average board game, and it's bright with a great design.
