Product Description

Amazon.com

It's called Mancala For Kids, but, aside from having the traditional playing stones shaped into plastic animal forms, it's a surprisingly elegant version of the centuries-old pebble-snatching pursuit. With its clasped and hinged board fashioned of solid hardwood, this game's equipment is finer than many deluxe sets on the market, and the simple classic rules are intact. Two players still scoop out stones from one of their wells, dropping one in each subsequent pocket and trying to collect opposing pieces. So, go ahead and call it Mancala For Kids--at least until your little opponent scoops up all your doggies, fishies, and widdle turtles and wins the game. --Tony Mason

Product Description

Elephants, dogs, lions, and more! Collect as many colorful animal "gemstones" as you can.

The board folds for easy storage with wooden hinges.

The case seems well built and the 48 little plastic colorful animals that come with it are very cute.

Mancala, of course, is one of my all-time favorite low-tech games; now my daughter plays it for hours with her friends, just like I did 30 years ago.
This set has a nice folding wooden board and the fun animal-shaped plastic pieces -- the kids like the animals, and the irregular shapes actually are easier to handle than smooth stones. It also stores fairly compactly.
The three things I don't like about this set:
- the clasp is very difficult to work. You will break your thumbnail.
- The pits aren't deep enough to hold more than about 5 stones. This is a problem when you get a big stack.
- The wooden hinges, while allowing the board to lie flat, look flimsy and are difficult to work.
In all, a good game marred by a few technical problems, but the kids won't care.

I first played this game at summer camp. All of my friends and I used to fight over who would play. This went on from the beginning to the end and then I wanted to buy it. This toy never gets old. It is fun for all ages and you will just want to keep playing and playing ...

Mancala is a great GAME THAT TAKES A LOT OF SKILL, TECHNIQUE, AND BRAIN POWER. yOU CAN THINK UP OF MANY DIFFERENT STRATEGIES IN ONE GAME THAT CAN HELP YOU BEAT THE OPPOSING PLAYER. iT'S FUN AND EDUCATIONAL BOTH AT THE SAME TIME AND DESERVES 5 STARS UNDER EACH CATAGORY.

I bought this game, also kids' version, originally several years ago. My older version is of better quality compared to this one I just bought for a little girl's birthday. This one lacked the latch to keep it all contained, and the wood was not as smooth as the older version. It's all the same maker. Anyhow, this is a superb puzzle/strategy game for adults and kids.

This is the second Mancala For kids, that I have purchased. I first brought it for my daughter when she was about 8 years old, and then I brought it for her again, when she turned 21. Lol, I know she's to old for this particular version, however she loves the pieces, and it was a reminder of her childhood. I would highly recommend this game for children and adults. We love it!

Wonderful presentation of the most ancient of games, something I have enjoyed in a variety of settings with a variety of materials, including pebbles and holes in the sand.

Here we have an excellent presentation of this ancient math game which teaches and practices so many skills necessary for school, for standardized tests, for life.

This can hook right in, for instance, to The Lion King (Little Golden Book), but you did NOT hear that from me!

Makes math fun, and challenges all ages. Not just for kids, but the whole family.

Mancala is an ages old game and this version comes with easy to understand instructions and the kids love the animals. The board folds for easy storage with wooden hinges. Well constructed, this should last a loong time!!! this game helps those mathematically challenged and will improve strategic playing by your youngsters.

This is a great game! It's a kids version of Mancala in that the pieces are colorful little animals instead of pebbles - otherwise it's the same game. It's great for ages 4 and up. My son plays it every night and we got it for all of our friends for christmas!
