This review is from: Peaceable Kingdom / Count Your Chickens Award Winning Cooperative Game for Kids (Toy)
We were looking to buy our child his first board game, and we are so glad we came across this cooperative game instead of the usual Candyland-type games. This game is simple yet fun for young children who are learning how to count. The board and pieces are colorful and sturdy, though keep in mind that the chicks are very small. This game is a great way to develop children's counting, fine-motor, and turn-taking skills. Although we usually "win" the game, the times when the fox "wins" are also a good opportunity to teach children to be graceful losers, and victory is far from guaranteed. Playing with the base number of chicks ensures that every game is exciting.
Customer service at Peaceable Kingdom is exceptional: our 2-year-old "lost" 7 of the chicks, which makes the game too easy. We e-mailed the company to ask if we could order replacements and they sent us some for free (plus some fantastic stickers). We are looking forward to buying and playing more Peaceable Kingdom games!
