I was so excited to find the Uncle Wiggly games for my grandkids. We had been playing an old game of my childhood and they loved it.

The new version is so "dumbed-down" that the kids don't even ask to play that one. They want to play the old one. For example: the path goes only to 100 instead of 151. The paths don't intertwine as in the old game. It's much too easy and obvious; even kids catch on to that!!!!

Uncle Wiggily has the same appeal as a Dr. Seuss book. The characters are whimsical, the art appealing, and the rhymes help struggling readers. As a high school English teacher, I sometimes get asked by friends to help their children who are having trouble learning to read. I always bring out my Uncle Wiggily game, which has been in my family for about 30 years. Now I am delighted to be able to buy a copy for a friend's family, whose children always ask to play the game when they come over. Call it nostalgia or call it Peter Pan Syndrome...I still enjoy the game myself!

My daughter (5yrs),loves what she calls, "The Rabbit Game". I had this game as a child and loved it then. She can't read the cards very quickly, so we have to help her a bit on that. It was a nice change from Candy Land and Chutes and Ladders! I hope she'll remember it when she has children! Hey, it takes no batteries-yeah

I grew up playing my grandparents version of this game with my sister. To start your turn, you would pick a yellow card that had a charming little story involving the other characters interacting with Uncle Wiggily, usually rhyming, that told you how many spaces to move or where to go, or it told you to choose a pink card. Some of the cards were so funny that even when we played it when we were older we would find ourselves giggling over the stories. The new version only has one set of cards that have simplistic rhymes that only involve Uncle Wiggily moving ahead or back with no mention of any of the other characters. This new version is so dumbed down it is extremely boring to play, even to my 3 year old daughter! I wish I had read the reviews more closely and saved my money. I would never have thought that the game had been changed so drastically!

My daughter received this game for Christmas and it was instantly her favorite gift of the season. The artwork in the game is charming and the rhymes on every card are wonderful! The play and movement of the characters around the board reminds me a good bit of "Candy Land". The players draw cards to move their piece around the board just as in Candy Land. The difference being that this game uses numbers as opposed to colors. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the numbers on the cards go up to 20. Too many games and toys for children these days seem to assume children can't handle numbers beyond 5 or 10.

We recently got this game for my son after reading the reviews here. I had never heard of this game before but it seemed like fun. It is pretty much the same idea as Candyland (advancing pieces based on pure luck of the draw with the goal of making it to the end) but a little more educational. Instead of color cards this game has cards with numbers on them. If you draw a 5 you advance five spaces, etc. There are also cards that have you go backwards.

A winding pathway of one hundred steps takes Uncle Wiggily, the long-eared hare, to Doctor Possum's house. Players pick cards, read the little poem and travel the number of spaces specified. A few spaces tell the player to go back three spaces, but otherwise the action is all forward with no strategy or skill involved. Kids like the rhymes and this is good for those who are learning to read. Family fun, though not much challenge. Nice game board.

I grew up with this game as a kid and then my nieces and nephews grew up on it. We have nearly destroyed our original board game from so many played games. I have looked in the stores and done a few web searched in the past to no avail. But today I found it! I just ordered a few for my great niece and great nephew. I know they will grow up with fond memories of laying on the floor playing this game as their two previous generations had. You will enjoy playing this game with your kids as I did mine.
