{Be forewarned! I am going into great detail because this is the first review and I may have spent less time in Target debating over this purchase if I had known this beforehand. Sorry for being so longwinded!}

I bought this game a few hours ago so I can't say how long it will last, but it sure is fun! I was going to get the regular Hyper Dash for my daughter even though it is for older kids, but I saw this one and (after much debate) I decided to get it instead. Not only is it adorable, but it burns energy. Although the regular Hyper Dash would probably have been more fun as a family game (adults enjoy it too, from what I hear) this game is very fun for her to play by herself or with a friend. Her and her cousin have been playing it in the "treasure hunt" mode, which is like hide-and-seek, for awhile and love it.

Here is how it works. There are 4 different modes of play (play alone, play with group, treasure hunt and memory) and 5 different levels. When you play alone, you spread out the four animals and the base (giraffe) calls out animals, colors, sounds, attributes or letters (depending on the level) and the child "tags" the corresponding piece with the base. You can keep all of the pieces in front of your child so that they can sit and play or you can spread them out around the room so that your child has to run around to get to them. We even put one up a couple steps so that the kids had to climb to get to it. At the end the giraffe tells you how long it took you to finish so that you can try to beat your record. Group play is the same except that the base tells you when to pass to another player. Treasure hunt is just like hide-and-seek. One player takes the giraffe and counts.

My 3 year old son loves this game! It is a great way for kids to expend energy! My husband and I really get a kick out of watching our son run around like crazy! We can play it with him or he can play alone, which we like. We have not experienced ANY problems with its durability. I think the two reviewers may have gotten untypical games. The animals in our game fit very snugly into their bases (to the point that our son has trouble pulling them apart at times). Our son and his friends are NOT gentle when slamming the giraffe on the animals, but it has held up fine. I agree with Jenna Hoosier's review regarding the "treasure hunt" mode not giving the kids much time to hide the animals, but honestly, the kids don't seem to mind. We have played this both indoors and outdoors and I would definitely recommend playing it outside. I think it's much more fun. The kids can spread the animals out much further and get to run more, which they seem to enjoy.

We also have Hyper Dash (which we like equally well), but I think my son enjoys this one more because he can do ALL of the levels instead of just a few like with Hyper Dash. We'll probably stick with this one for another year or so. Overall, I'd definitely recommend this game for anyone with kids 5 and under!

This game was at the top of our Christmas list for our 3 year old son. We were so excited about it- loved the concept and just knew our son would get into it. Well, come Christmas morning he did! He was super excited about receiving it, so we openend it and played. In the 1st game, yay FIRST use, two of the four animals broke off their stands. The little green peg made a clean break inside the tiger and the monkey. They can't stand, even though I've tried and tried super gluing, and the game just isn't the same. We could NOT believe the poor, poor quality and to say we were disappointed was an understatement. What a great game concept, but what nousey construction.

My daughter who is 2 and a half loves this game. It's fun, easy to use, and gets her moving. The bases are a problem though. Don't skip this game just buy some serious plastic glue (super glue won't work) and glue the pieces on the bases BEFORE you start playing. Don't skimp on the glue either. Skuff up the bases and animals with sandpaper, and put the glue on thick. I have clear glue and it isn't noticable at all. I think if I would have glued the pieces first this game would have lasted much longer. It still works but the monkey is sitting on my bar with glue all over his feet and rubber bands wrapped around his head to hold him down.

My son loves this toy. At around 3 years old, he's not much for hiding the pieces or even spreading them out, but he loves the excitement of the game and is getting the idea of "racing" to finish the game quickly. The biggest problem is that the small animals rest on little green bases (see photo) with the smallest pegs you've ever seen. These pegs break instantly. Three of the animals will not stand on their own, and the giraffe doesn't register the animals unless they are upright, so leaving them laying down isn't an option. After setting the toy aside for a few months (and almost tossing it), my husband finally had the genius idea of making bases for the animals out of playdough. It works great. They might get dirty if you put them somewhere other than a table, but they hold the animals up and make play possible again.
