The other side of the board is similar to the regular Scrabble board (without the doubling and tripling parts). One can form words without the constraint of pre-printed words. A kid who reads and writes well (7 or 8 year olds, for example), can do well with it.
I like this game because it gives kids a taste of the Scrabble game without making them work unnecessarily too long and too hard at it. (I tried using the standard board with kids. It worked for only a little while.)
All in all, a good game to have, even with the cardboard lettering.
There are only about ten words that kids can work to spell, and these are a predictably condescending mix of "easy words" like WATER and GOAT, along with "fun words" like ARCADE, CANDY and TELEVISION. If you play this game a lot, you're stuck spelling the same words over and over, so there's little learning value or reinforcement of new vocabulary.
The other side of the board can be used for a more normal Scrabble experience, but I find my 5-year-old, though she's reading, is a little young for that. My only other complaint is that all the tiles and "points" chips this game uses are thick cardboard, which means that if they sneak into the washing machine, they're toast (I know this from tragic personal experience).
All in all, this game isn't an outright loss, but I was expecting better from a big games company.
Recommended Ages: 4 to 6 years old ONLY (my 6-year old, an avid reader, is bored to tears with this game)
Playability on Shabbat: YES!!! (no batteries, electronics or writing)
Another great alternative is UpWords. This is a MUCH better pre-Scrabble game than Scrabble Jr. It rewards cleverness over knowledge of obscure words, and therefore helps to level the playing field among players of varying-sized vocabularies. Upwords

Great for teaching spelling and critical thinking. Wonderful that there are two sides - one with the words printed as a starter and the other a regular scrabble board. Read morePublished 11 days ago by Alla
We like to play games as a family and this works perfectly for little ones who are learning letters and letter sounds. This game has become a staple during our weekly family night.Published 29 days ago by Amber
Always a great game for the family. However I prefer the wood or plastic letters as opposed to these cardboard ones. Too flimsy for us. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Kindle Customer
Product arrived in excellent condition. Good game with choice of blank board on one side or fill in the letters for already spelled words on the other side. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
I got this to introduce my granddaughter to Scrabble but it's cheaply made and, more importantly, really, really lame. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Alex
