My son is just shy of three years old. He really won't sit still for games so I asked my friends for some game advice. Anyone who owned the Sneaky Snacky Squirrel game higly recommended it. I received it in the mail and as soon as I opened the package my son was all about it. We opened it and I read the directions. It was very easy to understand and the rules made sense to my son as well. We played for over an hour straight that night! Since then he asked to play the game almost daily. He understands it, it's fun for him, and it keeps his attention for a good amount of time. Big hit around here!
My 3 year old loves this game so much we found It while at the toy fair in London 2020 at the learning resources stand and it's been a huge hit with her and her cousins it's hard to win ( the kids beat me everytime!)
I watched videos of this product first. It seemed a little young for my 1st graders, but also fun! I am so happy I ordered it! Exactly as pictured.
My house is full of educational board games, but the majority of them are pretty flat and a little dull. My kids still love them, but 'The Sneaky, Snacky Squirrel Game' is something else; an educational game that has has great production values. No flat bits of card here, but cute looking rubber acorns, plastic tree trunks and an awesome Sneaky Squirrel to play with. The gameplay is super simple, as you may expect for a game aimed at pre-schoolers. You each take a tree trunk and the aim is to fill the coloured holes with a corresponding acorn. You spin to see what colour you should take, or miss a turn. Or perhaps steal an acorn from someone else! The Sneaky Squirrel is the star of the show; a brilliantly molded piece of plastic that acts as tweezers to pick up the acorns in its hands. The game aims to promote recognition of colours and development of hand/eye co-ordination. I encourage my child to use the squirrel correctly as a way to help their penmanship in the future. This game has already been played countless times in my house. Its use of 3D elements means that it really stands out when compared to the other educational games we own. It is worth noting that you can play house rules like we do - my kids refuse to steal from others. I am not sure if this makes me proud or worried!
I bought this game as a gift bc we have one and love it. Simple rules and easy to modify for really tiny kids. My son and daughter have been interested since they were two. If only to put acorns on the tray while the rest of us play . It’s a good toy to keep everyone engaged. Super cute too.
I am a Speech-Language Pathologist, and this game is one of my top picks when working with kiddos of a variety of ages! The game is colorful and engaging, and encourages language use as well as turn-taking, counting, matching, fine motor skills, and much more. My young kiddos enjoy it's simple and easy to follow rules, and my older kiddos love using the squirrel, and stealing acorns! Highly recommend
