By Alvin Chao on November 16, 2012
Disclaimer: I got a free copy of the puzzle to try out. However, have purchased several other ThinkFun products on my own and generally like most of the product they produce.

Concept:
I really liked the unique type of spatial visual puzzle concept that the designer was employing in this product. The dog shapes were fun for the kids 9 and 6 to play with. The 6 yo got bored quickly as the puzzles were a bit too challenging for her, but my 9 yo son enjoyed the puzzle quite a bit.

Design/Construction:
Overall a nicely designed product. I would probably prefer that the stencils themselves were made of plastic to hold up a little better especially with the amount of flipping through them, but overall the laminated cardboard was okay and should hold up adequately.

Fun Factor:
This was a fun puzzle to play with and my son and I enjoyed thinking through the various color combos and trying to figure out which layer came first. It's probably not a game we'll play every day or one we can't put down, but should be a nice road trip type of game since it takes up very little room to play it.

Overall rating 4/5 Liked it!

The puzzle: using the eight dog silhouette cards and one solid black card, make a stack to produce one of the eight designs shown in the booklet.

I found this considerably easier than the classic Rabbit Silhouette puzzle (ThinkFun made a version of that back when they were called Binary Arts). Because the cards in this puzzle are square, there are only four possible rotations for each one, doubling to eight once you include flipping the cards over. The order of the stack matters, so there are lots of possible combinations, but you can get clues to the order by looking at the puzzle goal and seeing how much of each color is visible.

The puzzle was created by Ron Dubren, who has designed quite a few puzzles and toys, including Rubik's Rabbits and Nemesis Factor. He is also the co-inventor of Tickle Me Elmo.

The cards are plastic-coated cardboard, and should hold up pretty well, though it is possible to fold them if you are careless. It comes with a fairly sturdy plastic tray that you can use to display your solution. The color scheme is attractive and well chosen, though you do have to pay attention to make sure you don't confuse the two shades of gray. I would recommend this for adults and older kids/teens, as I suspect younger kids would not find it as interesting.

I enjoyed the puzzle quite a bit. Between the colors and the moderate difficult level, it was kind of soothing (unlike some puzzles which lean more toward frustrating) and was satisfying to solve.

Disclaimer: I know some of the people who work for ThinkFun, and I got a free copy of the puzzle to try out. However, I loved their stuff long before I knew anyone there, and have bought pretty much everything they have ever produced.

I am a huge fan of ThinkFun products, and when I saw a chance to receive a free game on their Facebook page for a simple review, I jumped on it.

The concept of this game is to flip, rotate, and stack 8 different cards to match one of the puzzles shown in the puzzle book.

1. I think this game is a perfect coffee table piece/game for Dog Lovers!

2. I have yet to see anything else on the market out there for a challenge of this sort (It also reminds me of their Daily Puzzle.

3. The challenges are tricky for kids and adults both!

4. As a teacher, I will use it as a geometry/art project for my middle school students, and I have no doubt they will love it! Im also excited to hopefully get their other versions so my students have a choice. I believe they have Tropical and Sports. Perhaps more coming in the future too :0)

This product is a lot of fun for my 9 year old son! He loves being creative and likes puzzles so he really liked using the booklet to do the different challenges. It's also a great travel game!

This colorful puzzle is quite the challenge for my 8 year old, but he's up for it! The laminated cards are durable and the dog theme fits his interest. It's helped curb boredom blues on several occasions. Love that it's small and portable. Easy to have on hand for on-the-go fun.

Disclaimer: We received this item free of charge through a Thinkfun promotion and were asked to write a review.

First impressions: I remember stencils similar to these being made of plastic. I was disappointed to find that these are merely cardboard. The plastic tray that holds the stencils is thin and cumbersome to put back in the box. the colors of the individual cards are easily distinguished and show a high level of detail. Not sure how much lasting power this will have - one or two times playing seems like it will be enough.

Session impressions: We both figured out one puzzle and had pretty much had our fill. It was an interesting puzzle, but not one we cared do try several variants of by switching the front stencil piece and the colors behind it. Our daughter is too young for the puzzle aspect, but we let her explore just using the stencils in her art projects. As stated above, these are made of cardboard and have started to show significant wear in the short amount of use they have seen. After a few initial uses, they have gone untouched on her art shelf.

Overall impressions: The sum of the parts is greater than the whole. Good quality stencils are fun. Puzzles are fun. This combination of both seems to miss the mark (at least for my family). We'll stick to one or the other instead of this intriguing, yet unfortunately lackluster hybrid.
