This review is from: Fat Brain Toys AnimaLogic (Toy)I purchased this game as a gift for my five-year-old. Turns out the grown ups in the family have had as much (or more!) fun as she is having with this puzzle-solving game! Sixty puzzles are contained in a sturdy spiral-bound book, arranged by levels- with "1" being the easiest (my five-year-old can do these) and level "5" being the most difficult (these take some serious thought and strategic planning). The puzzles in the book tell you how to arrange the animals on the game board to start; the goal is to remove the animals from the game board one at a time, making sure each animal removed is followed by one that is either the same kind of animal (giraffe, camel, lion, hippo) or same color (red, yellow, green, blue). This is more difficult than it sounds! The game can be played over and over- there are plenty of puzzles, and it would be next to impossible to remember the solutions, so no worries about running out of games to solve. It is an ideal "quiet time" game, as it can be played alone (little ones may need some guidance, at least to start) and it requires thoughtful concentration. The game board is a sturdy cardboard that would easily wipe clean, and the animal pawns are made of painted wood. Only complaint I might have is that if you aren't playing in bright light the green and blue animals are a little tricky to tell apart. All in all, this is a great game and I would highly recommend it for any age.
