We returned it and got a new one hoping it was just a defective one, but no, the second one was just as horrible.

You have to make sure the car is perfectly lined up in the track, and even then, the monopoly man doesn't register spaces as you move around the board.

I would give it away, but I'm afraid of getting some other kid's hopes up and then letting them down ... it's really best off in the landfill.

I bought this game for my sons 5th birthday thinking it'd be a lot of fun to play and he could play with ease. Imagine the disappointment he and I both felt when it didn't work. The car counts the spaces as you move it, however it didn't always register the spaces.. sometimes I could move 4-5 spaces and it'd only count 1, and sometimes I'd move 1 space as told and it'd tell me to move back 3. We returned it and got a new one hoping it was just a defective one, but no, the second one was just as horrible. We returned it and are looking at other games for him now.

There is no way to sugarcoat this. The game construction is very poor and unacceptable. At the four points where the track connects, the car is very hard to move past. As a result the car can jump the tracks. As others have said if you move the car slowly it does better at counting. But if a 4 to 5 year old is trying to get it past one of the four connection points, he has to give it a good push. This usually results in the car counting wrong or worse the car coming off the track.

The counting issue also happens if you don't push the car very smoothly. This is not easy for a 4 to 5-year old. Especially for long moves, he pushes it part of the way, then re-adjusts to push it the next few spaces. His arms just aren't long enough. As others have said this may happen from the car registering multiple times on the same bump. Also moving too fast may cause the car to lift and not register on a bump. Mom or dad will need to hold the track to prevent it from moving when children are moving the car.

Hasbro should have spent a little more money in making the track. The car, houses, and money are fine. The concept of the game is fine for a 4 to 5 year old. The money really doesn't matter for winning, but my son does like it when mom or dad have to pay him though.

I bought this game for my classroom - special ed. It works on counting skills and paying money for rent. After playing around with it, we figured out that you need to move the car slowly and listen to the car counting. You also need to read the directions and have the button on the steering wheel pushed out of "training mode". The kids had lots of fun playing. They learned about paying rent, and the "go" and "chance" parts of the game. For visually impaired students and the students that have trouble with one to one correspondence, the car counting the spaces works great. I am going to laminate the game board insert and the money though because they won't take too much of a beating from the kids. They will be able to play this game without direct staff help - which makes them feel great!

My son wanted me to write this review so that we can tell everyone that this was junk. As many have said, it does not count the spaces properly. And it is very hard to move the car. That itself makes the game unplayable.

This is a great first version of monopoly that is pretty true to the original game. Mr. Monopoly moves around the board and on your turn you can build where he lands. You try to build each building to a specified height and cap it with your color roof so you can collect rent. The goal is to cap 5 buildings with your roof and then use your golden roof before anyone else. My 4 year old understands how to play the game and has learned when to cap her buildings, pay rent, or collect rent. It is a great game for a non-reader to work on basic math skills.

It can be tricky to move the car the proper number of spaces (and if you accidentally go too many spaces it penalizes you - which you can ignore). It also takes a few seconds for Mr Monopoly to respond after you push his head for instructions. I do have some concerns about how durable Mr Monopoly will be. However, you could replace his automated voice with a die roll if you had to and create a few chance cards.

As I've had this in our game closet and just threw it out this weekend after frustration, it prompted me to post a short review.
The education value is good as it teaches counting and group dynamics It had the potential to be fun with a cute car and colorful
parts. However, in the real world when you're actually playing it (where was the usability testing?) - it doesn't work.
To be clear, it's not children 'not able to use it properly' - I'm talking 2 adults being frustrated.
Picture moving the car 3 spaces and it saying you moved too far and move back. Then you cannot remember where you are because
you are spending more time trying to get it to snap/communicate the correct spot, you forget the fun of the game.
This wasn't an infrequent occurence, but nearly every turn - it would say you went too far, go back or were on the wrong spot.
Perhaps it could be redesigned to have the car built directly into the board so it won't be physically removed which was most of
the problem. Bring manufactuing back to the U.S. !

My wife and 4 1/2 yr. old daughter brought this game home tonight after seeing it at the toy store. We paid a bit more than the $4.99 sale price others have gotten on Amazon, but the price was still reasonable for a game we would get plenty of use out of. Assembly was straight forward, and the directions, although a bit complex for a 4 yr. old on first read, were simple and straightforward.

And that's where things went south. As many other reviewers have stated, this toy should never have made it out of the quality control department at the manufacturer. No matter how slowly we pushed the car, it frequently miscounted the spaces. Worse yet, it never once recognized the "chance" space, and consistently ignored the chance space, free parking, and "go" spaces in its counts.

I even tried disassembling the track and putting it back together, then realigning the car on the track to make sure the leads were making proper contact. We played on a hardwood surface. I pushed down on the car ever so slightly, thinking a small gap might be to blame for the poor results. But alas, nothing worked.

We played on. . . all in all, we all three agreed the game would be fun, if it worked properly. A big disappointment, especially considering what a neat idea it was.
