A Bit Gimmicky
on November 18, 2011
I bought this for a birthday party game - figured the 9 year olds would enjoy playing it. the board is colorful pressboard and holds up to play. But it slots into two small wood 'feet' that hold it up but don't give it any strength when the beanie birds are tossed at it. It falls over immediately.
The bird beanies are cute but more of a flat pancake shape rather than the round birds. They are decent quality, nicely made, but look more like a flat head than the whole bird body.
The graphics on the front are very colorful and cute - and the points are easy to read. But the birds are nearly the size of the oval throw holes, making it rather difficult to get them through for points. I am a bit worried the game might be too hard for the 9 olds to actually get through the hole.
The size of the game is about that of an 8x10 sheet of paper. It's small and compact - more of a table top game than one you'd put on the floor (it's much too small for the floor).
