i love rush hour junior even though i am 12. Normallly when you get a junior game it is sort of a waste of money because it is nothing like the original game but rush hour junior is exactly what it should be a junior game of rush hour. i would definetly reccomend this for younger kids. i even had a blast playing this game!

For children who likes puzzles and mazes, this is a great find. To get the ice cream truck out of the traffic jam, the child must think on more than one level and more than one move ahead. Any wrong moves can be easily reversed and there is no penalty for wrong moves, only the thrill of solving the puzzle. Its great for solo play or for two to work together. The travel bag makes it a terrific "take along" toy -- as long as you have a flat surface on which to set up the board. My son is five years old and takes great pride in solving the simplest level puzzles. With a total of four levels of difficulty, I think we will be playing this game for some time to come.

We bought this game on a whim, not knowing how it will go with our 4 and 6 year olds. Turned out they both love it--they pull it out on their own and work on problems for a long time (an hour at least). In the process, I discovered that my 4 year old, who usually is not very patient with time-consuming problems, can sit through several cards and has a talent solving problems of this kind. I highly recommend it!

Games has a simple objective -- get the Red car out of traffice. And boy! it is difficult and changelling at higher level. Set up the *cars* as described in cards and figure out a way to get the Red Car out.The best thing is complexity raange from very easy to very hard. So it captures kids interests and provides the extra incentive to move to the next level !!

Simple rules -- once you have placed the cars on the Grid, you can only move them forward or backward.

A great addition to this game is "Rush Hour 2, 3 and 4 Gift Pack" for less than $12/-. Each set has 40 cards or in total 120 different combinations are possible. The highest level is really really difficult. Meant for the "Pros" only !!!

My 4.5 year old saw this game at a friend's, and has devoured it (figuratively) since she got it a few days ago. I gave her some basic organizational pointers, like 'put the cars you need on your left side' and stressed that the Ice Cream truck was always the one to focus her efforts on, and she has really amazed me with her problem-solving abilities. The game has many different aspects that aid development, including the setup of gamepieces according to a diagram, spatial relationships on a grid, taking on a challenge, and feeling accomplishment. Going through the cards sequentially helps her see what her next objective is, and she feels the thrill of chipping away at a problem, one obstacle at a time. The reward so far, has been moving on to the next card. However, in going with the premise of the game, when she finishes the last card, she get's to go out for a real banana split.

This is the first game that has prompted me to write a review or make a comment. Rush Hour is an exceptional game that has got the whole family thinking and playing together. My 5 year old son received it as a Christmas present and was immediately drawn into the problem-solving aspect of the game. He loves mazes and such and this was right up his alley. This game is not only a great learning toy but also fun and with so many levels will be one that he can play for some time to come. Great durability and portability. So much fun, that every adult he showed it to wants an adult version.

After reading about Rush Hour, Jr. on this website, I decided to get it for my sons, age 7 and 4. They are both a year older now, and still enjoy it. My oldest is now ready for the "adult" version but the more difficult puzzles of the Jr. game still provide some challenge. An unexpected benefit from this "game" is that my sons love to watch each other play and offer encouragement and sometimes advice, and neither gets discouraged when he gets stuck--how great is it to see that?
It also travels really well, we take it in the car for our frequent long trips and take it on the boat to play during snack time.
Parents--I definitely recommend both Rush Hour versions and the booster cards.

Verified Purchase
I've never played Rush Hour, but the Junior version was a big hit with my 5 and 8 year old kids (and me!) this Christmas. It has 4 levels of difficulty: beginner, intermediate, advanced, and expert, with 10 cards in each level. You pick a card and set up the grid with vehicles as depicted on the card. The object is to get your ice cream truck through the traffic and exit the grid.
The rules are: no moving cars sideways. You have to move them forward or backward based on the direction the vehicles are facing. The beginner cards typically require each vehicle be moved only once before you are able to get the ice cream truck through the traffic. With the advanced cards, you may have to move vehicles a few times as you strategically plan your escape.
This game is not only fun, but helps with organization (setting up the grid) and planning (figuring out how to get your ice cream truck out of a jam). It also gives the kids a sense of accomplishment as they move on to the more difficult cards.
I highly recommend it and we plan on buying the adult version soon!
