This is a very nice puzzle for making sentences. The sentence structure is enforced by the way the puzzle pieces fit together. Here's what you get: 40 nouns, 12 adjectives, 2 articles, 4 verbs, 2 prepositions. With these can create 16 sentences at a time. Of the 12 adjectives, there are 3 colors and words like big, happy, scary, furry. 4 verbs are "ate", "saw", "climbed", and "jumped" -- the last two require using "over" or "on" because of the way the puzzle pieces fit together.
For my daughter (nearly 6) it was good for learning about the parts of a sentence and sentence structure. She wasn't interested in the silliness as she was interested in making "real" sentences. On the other hand, my son (nearly 4) loved the silliness. For him the game was helpful for getting him interested in the concepts of words and sentences.
While there is room for improvement, this game works very well for making silly sentences. It is a very good introduction to reading and good for several half hours of fun. The 124 puzzle pieces, while it seems like a lot, still limits the breadth of sentences you can explore. Overall, I recomend it, especially for the younger end of the recommended 4-7 year age range.

While initially fun, the fact that the game comes with only four verbs--ate, jumped, climbed and saw--makes it hard to hold even a four-year-old's attention for long.

I use this game at school with first and second graders. They love it, and it's a great way to get them using descriptive words, capitals and periods. It's also very durable. I've used the same game with 20+ kids for three years.

I purchased this product to use with several ESL students that I tutor. So far I have used it with K-5 students, and all have enjoyed it. Even my more advanced English language learners got a kick out of the silly sentences and as a teacher I appreciate that it reinforces parts of speech and articles which are sometimes challenging for these students. My only complaint is that the verbs are limited, but I think my advanced students could make a project out of creating their own puzzle pieces. All in all, a helpful tool for kids new to english.

My kids have played Silly Sentences with their enrichment teacher & liked it so much that I thought I would buy it for them & we could play at home. A fun way to play & learn at the same time. Anyway this version of Silly Sentences doesn't have the spin wheel or game board according to what my 8 & 6-yo tell me. They said that their teachers game is better. This just has the different word groups & you pick from the different colored piles to form a sentence. I don't think the sentences are as silly compared to the other version where you spin the wheel. But for what I paid for it I guess it's worth it, but certainly wished we had the other version.

My kid has this game in her classroom. i wanted her to have more practice outside of class. It's a fun learning game. I wish there were a few more word options. I'm sure they keep it simple for beginning learners. But I find my kid wanting to add words. So we write them on paper and add them to the sentence line. But each piece is a puzzle piece connection, making the scrap paper additions look sloppy. So it would be nice if there were blank puzzle pieces that they could write in dry erase marker to make up their own words.

The game has a big selection of nouns, but needs more adjectives, verbs and adverbs. And blank puzzle pieces that can be inserted for learners custom words.

This game is great fun for kids reading level 1 books and even for older kids who are more advanced. My avid readers have enjoyed it for years. Kids can build sentences such as,"The hero jumped over a red thin dinosaur." and "The blue furry big scary happy fish jumped on a frog."
It would be nice if there were a few more verbs and adjectives, but we've used Silly Sentences over and over with our young children since it was originally purchased ten years ago. It's educational but fun and a nice resource for homes and classrooms.

This isn't an easy game by any means. It will challenge an emerging reader - and this makes it a great tool for learning.
