Product Description

Boggle Junior Game

Amazon.com

There's no need to be boggled by words. Boggle Jr. helps children learn letters, spelling, and reading while having loads of fun! This easy version of the terrifically popular adult Boggle uses pictures and matching games to allow children to make the connection between objects and their names. With two skill levels, players can challenge themselves further as they become more adept at identifying letters and words. It will seem like no time at all before kids are begging to play their parents' version of Boggle! The game, for one or more players, includes a game tray with word cover, 30 picture/word cards with 60 three- and four-letter words, and eight letter cubes. --Emilie Coulter

Customer Reviews

I absolutely love this game for my 4 and 7 year old!
Cassandra Duggan and Douglas Bowman
I love watching my son get excited about figuring out what letters make up the word and then frantically searching through the letters to find the right one.
R & J Corder
It is a great way to teach children how to spell and makes it fun so the children don't realize they are learning.

My 3, 4, and 7 year olds all get good use out of this game in different ways. (Also our 1 year old helps by stacking up the cubes.) I would recommend it to any family with preschoolers up to early second grade (older kids play with the words always covered). My kids have been able to play it by themselves with very little teaching. Other reviewers have complained about Boggle Jr's lack of buzzers, music, timers, and competitiveness, as well as the fact that their kids actually had to look on the cubes for the letter they needed-- these are all plusses if you ask me! This game has promoted concentration and focus in my kids, and the sound of busy, thinking kids emanating from the dining room is far sweeter than electronic noises any day.

This game was recommended by my daughter's preschool teachers as a supplementary activity to help develop reading skills. I can appreciate its value in helping kids learn their letters, developing sight-reading skills, and even letter-sound correspondence. However, my 4-year-old daughter didn't find having to turn over the blocks repeatedly to find the letters a lot of fun. And a word of warning: some words can NOT be formed, because occasionally two letters needed to form a word are on the same block! I wish Hasbro would do something about this...

This is pretty much kid vs kid only. Adults cannot play along. You can make it into a solo game for one child, but its really more like flash cards for spelling if you do that.

The product is basically a set of flash cards for spelling, with some letter cubes for the kids to spell out the words. The rules propose two games, which are basically see if the kids spells the word right, they get to keep the card if they do, first kid with 5 cards wins. Adults can pretend to play along if the child is younger and will "fall for it." It really works as a game only if there are two kids the same age playing.

I don't know, but I can't see my daughter pulling this out when a friend comes over. Therefore, to the extent this is a set of flash cards for spelling, its kind of expensive for what it is.

Don't get me wrong, you can definitely make it into a learning tool. Your call.

There are many ways of playing with this game. My child would hold up the cards like flash cards and play "teacher". She would roll the cubes like dice and try to get certain letters. She would sort the cards alphabetically (find all the words that start with "B"). As she grew, her game play evolved. Now she is 3 and a half and she has no trouble spelling the words if she can see the letters. Turning over the dice and finding letters on more than one dice is just a part of the problem solving process. I expect if she keeps playing with it she will know how to spell all the words before she starts kindergarten.
I recommend this toy for very bright children. My child is bored with a lot of toys, but keeps coming back to this one.

This is a wonderful item to encourage pre and beginning readers to grasp the concept of identifying each individual letter's shape (through matching) and that when put together in different ways, they form words for favorite objects.
This is so important to preschoolers and those on the verge of reading. Once you get the game and see it, you'll find various ways the game pieces can be used to help your child at whatever prereading level he or she is on.
One of the most underestimated games for this age.

It was a waste of $$. It's not a game -- it's a headache. There is no element of playful competition in it: you get 8 plastic dice - each letter of the alphabet represented twice, and then you pick a card, put it in the holder which doesn't keep the card upright and proceed to search for the letters which make up the word on one of the 8 cubes and then place it in the groove to spell the three or four letter word.
That's it. That's the "game".
It gets tedious fast. You're much better off to buy yourself a Scrabble game where you have the letters seperated in front of you and make your own word cards and let the kids do the same thing (therefore eleminating the headache and eyestrain of flipping eight dice over and over each time you try to spell out a word); Scrabble accomplishes this perfectly, and when they are 7 and 8 you've got the Scrabble game to play. I returned Boggle Jr immediately. I was mostly disapointed not because it was too basic for my 4 and 5.5 year old, but because it's sold as a 'game' and there is no element of a game within it. No time restraints, no taking turns - and it's not designed for two players no matter what the directions attempt to suggest - it gets boring in a surprisingly short amount of time. I felt I was mislead by the packaging.
Definately skip Boggle Jr and get yourself Scrabble board.

I agree that the "game" is more learning vs playing per the directions. However, a little creativity and a fun, educational time can be had. The newest version that I play with my 3.5 year old son has us splitting the dice and taking turns rolling our dice with the goal of getting one of the word's letters. He has fun rolling and searching his lot even if he doesn't roll a needed letter. Plus he can easily handle 4 dice. When you roll a "needed" letter you place it in its place. The player who fills in the last letter "wins" and gets to spell out and say the word. Sometimes we make up our own songs about the winning word. This version easily keeps him happy for a half hour at a time and he has also played his own take on his own.
