It's hard to rate this as a "toy". This is a game, but not a "toy". The game, like any board game is not going to be kept the best by young children, but it is as durable as any other standard issue board game. If you have a child, however, who is an avid birder, then this could be a great "toy". Most games centering around birding have one large flaw in common: they are made for people who have a passing interest in birding, but do not consider themselves "birders".

This game is the opposite. Getting this for the backyard birder would probably incite some frustration. My parents and grandparents enjoy birding, however they will have no idea where to find a Fulvous Whistling-Duck, much less what it is.

The rules are simple. Answer a question, move forward. Get to the end = win. There are "obstacles" to the simple play called "Life List" cards, which are much like Chance or Community Chest. You can do bad things and be forced to move back (such as disrupting a nest) or great things like winning a free trip to a birding hotspot!

The game tests knowledge of many subjects: Birding Hotspots/Geography/Anatomical Identification/Field Marks/Calls/Nesting and Clutch Identification/Foraging Habits and Food Sources/Habitats, etc.

Each card features 3 questions per side, one beginner, intermediate, and expert question. The questions cover the entire North America, and any species or location is up for grabs. Here are some examples:

---
Beg: A female Redhead can be identified by its head of what color: black, brown, red, or white? A: Brown
Int: How does a Canvasback hunt: dabbles at the surface of the water, dives under the water, or forages on land?

This is an excellent game;but only for someone who takes birds seriously.Ashley,from Somerville,Morocco, has written a Review that explains in great detail what the game is like,so I won't repeat what she has said.
The game is similar to Monopoly except you most certainly need some knowledge about birds.It is totally different from Monopoly in that unless the player knows a lot of things about birds and has been a serious Birder for a number of years ;it would be pointless in thinking they would enjoy it.Monopoly can be played by anyone from 5 to 105,and requires no knowledge at all.This game is all facts and trivia that takes many years of learning and study.and I even mean trying to answer the Beginner Level Questions,let alone the Expert Level Questions.
Just for example ,here is a Beginner question;
The male King Eider can be identified by its protruding frontal shield of what color:black,blue,green,or orange? Ans:orange.Now tell me,if one doesn't even know what Eiders are,what chance do they have of answering that?
Here's another typical Beginner Question;
Name three species of Jays.Ans:Blue,Brown,Gray,Gray-breasted,Pinyon,Scrub and Steller,s. Most people might get Blue Jay and The Toronto Blue Jay baseball player doesn't count.And how about this for a Beginner? What type of Woodpeckers are known for drilling evenly spaced rows in trees:Flickers,Three-toed,or Sapsuckers? Ans: Sapsuckers.Don't be surprised if someone says, What about Woody Woodpecker,and quits the game.Then there are the Intermediate and expert Questions,such as The "Peterson" field guide has described this southern Ducks call as a loud squealing "ka-whee-oo"? Ans:Fulvous Whistling-Duck.
So,Why did I rate this game 5*?

It plays kind of like Monopoly but without buying things, just go around the board & some spots you land on you get a card that tells you to do something. Every turn you get a trivia question (you pick easy, medium, hard at the beginning of the game) & even for a preset difficulty level the easiness varies a bit. Educational & fun, even non-birders can get by.
