Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Cranium Sounds of the Seahore is a matching and memory game that celebrates the sights and sounds of a day by the sea. Kids hold the Magic Seashell to their ears to hear sounds like the bark of a seal or the horn of a friendly boat. Then they match each sound with a picture on a shell card. Every successful turn is rewarded with a Way to go! or You did it! The game can be played two ways -- a beginner listen-&-match version, with success on every turn, and an advanced memory game for older kids. 2 to 4 players.

Product Description

Sounds of the Seashore lets younger children celebrate the sights and sounds of a day by the sea.

The instructions did not provide much guidance to that, and most importantly, how to play the game.

I bought this game trying to find a fun learning game for my 3 and 5 year old.

Both played this game for 5 minutes and haven't touched it since. The seashell sits on a plastic thing... it took both my 3 year old and 5 year old several attempts to sit it on there right to play the sound back. If you accidentally bumped the seashell off the plastic holder, it's starting a new turn.

Also, the little shells that are to plug into the seashell... the kids kept lifting up the seashell to plug and unplug them, thus causing the seashell to start over.

I'm actually really surprised this game made it onto shelves... stay far far away from it. It's just not a fun game at all, and I wouldn't call it a learning game either.

As a long time fan of Cranium, this is a major disappointment. As the other reviewers have written, it is boring, frustrating, and doesn't work all the time. It was a complete waste of money. Skip this game altogether.

My 3 year old loves Cariboo, so I was excited to get the Sounds of the Seashore. What a diappointment! It comes with a paper board that can get easily get torn, which it has. And it's very boring! Sometimes it's hard to tell the difference in the sounds...could that be crab claws clicking together? Hard to tell...stick to Cariboo for toddlers/preschoolers and leave Sounds of the Seashore at the beach!

My son is 3 1/2, he got the hang of the game after I played it with him a few times. It's nice because it makes him listen for the sound, and then match up the sound with the shells.

We got it about 6 wks. ago, and he still plays with it.

I bought this game for my 3 and 4 year olds. They love Cariboo and Hulabaloo, so I figured a Cranium game couldn't miss. Well, I was certainly wrong! The game is boring once you've played it a few times. Once you can tell that the sound is, for example, a dolphin, you really don't need to stick the key in the shell to tell you that. But if you don't, the game doesn't work. And, of course, if you jostle the shell wrong, it messes up the whole game. Luckily I got this on a really good sale because it's now occupying space in the back of our game closet. Cramium should have known better!

Cranium Sounds of the Seashore

Not sure why this product made it past Cranium Marketing. My kids were so confused with the instructions! Plus, the plastic seashell does not properly fit on its plastic base and it failed to work when turned on. We could not tell the difference between a sea sound and the on sound. The instructions did not provide much guidance to that, and most importantly, how to play the game.

To play a good memory game with preschoolers, I recommend using an old-fashioned deck of cards or buying the old-school Original Memory Game by Hasbro: Original Memory

For a Cranium product I was pretty disappointed with this. The "beginner" level could easily be played by a toddler (18 months) and the advanced level is not much more challenging. I echo the frustration others had with the shell restarting a new sound every time it was lifted or jostled. The conch shell was telling us hooray! we were finished, when we still had about 6 shells on the board. At least dealing with that issue added a challenge to this otherwise completely boring game. If you think hearing a boat sound and then flipping over pictures until you find one of a boat sounds fun, then this is the game for you, otherwise I recommend parents of preschoolers get Cranium Cariboo instead.

It is sad to see so many disappointing reviews of the Sounds of the Seashore game because I think it is fantastic! As an educator for children with developmental delays (like Autism), I have used this game with lots of my kids. It not only facilitates the development of basic cooperative play skills (like turn-taking, waiting, and attending), but it also helps to strengthen listening skills, teach sound associations, and matching skills. I have never had an issue with the seashell component malfunctioning, so maybe I am one of the few "lucky" ones. Sometimes it is difficult for me to differentiate between a couple of the sounds, but the kids always seem to get it and that's what matters most! Definitely for the younger crowd. Wish I could find more types of this game out there... It would be great to have a variety of categories of sounds.
