I bought this for my son's 6th birthday as a small gift because he still really likes Richard Scarry. We have the Busytown game(for three years now) and still play it constantly, and I am getting the new Airport game for x-mas . I was worried that this game would be a little too simple for him but he loves it! He has a fall b-day and just started Kindergarten and is not a very advanced kid in terms of literacy and math, so a game like this encourages basic number skills. Because it is simple and easy he feels confident about setting it up and playing it. We have fun playing with him and usually play for at least a half hour. Our ten year old neighbor has happily joined in too. I don't think kids really outgrow games as fast as people think...after all this game is basically like a "war" style game, and who doesn't like to play war with their kids? Only this is much more fun because it has all his favorite characters to look at and laugh about! Seriously, he still cracks up over the silliness of busytown, whether we are reading, playing, or watching it, ...and so do my husband and I! This would make a great stocking stuffer for a Busytown fanatic...and perhaps would be a good game for younger kids(3-5) who have older siblings who could play along. I think you would be surprised at how much the big kids enjoyed it too.
Update(7/13)-
Three years later I am somewhat shocked to report that my almost 8 year old, going into 2nd grade, STILL wants to play this game! And you know what....I STILL actually like playing it with him! It IS a simple game, but somehow not really boring for us. We play a few rounds, and that's enough, but it still gets more play than all of the other small games and card games that we have.

This game is all about numbers and math. Each player chooses a card, upside-down. At the same time, you flip them all over. The person with the highest number, wins. If you get certain cards, you pick another card and add the two numbers together.

The rating for age starts with 3 years old which may be too young for some kids. This game is meant for kids who can recognize the order of the numbers AND can do simple math. Otherwise, the game is not fun for a child, just frustrating because they are dependent on the adult telling them every step of the game, whether they have won or not.

Rated it with a 4 stars just because I don't think the packaging tells what level a child should be to play this game.

My child is a young preschooler. I got this game to help introduce my child to number concepts (numbers, less than, greater than, etc.) The great thing about this game is the vibrant illustrations with animal people representing the numbers on them which is invaluable when trying to show your child that one card is greater or less than another. Another good thing is just how much fun this game can be. The downside is if your child doesn't understand the number concepts yet it can be a bit difficult dealing with their frustration and doubt when they loose a round. However it is worth the trouble in order to teach them how to be good players, patience, and to teach them that winning isn't everything (having fun and spending time together is more important.) Although this isn't one that is often picked we thoroughly enjoy it when we do play it, but find that the adults tend to pick it more. It might be better for an older toddler to introduce them to numbers and values, but for our age of child and for our needs it is a good game not the best.

Like "War", but with fun characters... The drawings are fun and engaging - classic Richard Scarry - you know, trucks made of hotdogs and such....the person with the most cards at the end wins. My son is 3-1/2 and enjoys counting the passengers in the cars and trucks. The game also introduces some simple addition/math. A good, educational game. Cute pictures. As a parent, I have other games I would rather play, but this is good for car trips because it is more portable.

My three year old got this for Christmas and has enjoyed playing it. Basically, each person picks a card, each card has a vehicle on it. The person whose car has the highest number of passengers takes the cards of the other players. (Kind of like War.) At the end the player with the most cards wins.

PROs:
Cards are oversized and good quality
PIctures are fun
Kids like it
Teaches counting and basic addition
Ties into Richard Scarry books which my kids love and I recommend

CONs:
Winning/losing has nothing to do with ability, purely based on luck of the draw, which my advanced 6 year old daughter is OK with but I can tell she wishes there was some skill involved to improve her chances over her little brother. WITH THAT SAID... that aspect also levels the playing field between kids of different ages and abilities. So it's an aspect that could be a plus or a minus.
Slightly repetitive.

For the price of about $5, I find it was well worth it.

great game. Can be used as a simple visual, or a matching game. Or as the instructions state, kids learn greater than or less than. Very good educational game.
