This is a very well-done memory game. There are twelve adorable wooden penguins with a hollow space to hide one of twelve brightly colored eggs (2 each of 6 colors). Players roll the dice to determine what color eggs they are looking for and then look under two penguins. If they get a match, they get to keep it; if both match, they get another turn; otherwise, it's the next player's turn. The first to get 6 eggs wins, or the one at the end with the most.

This game is very durable with all wooden pieces; it still looks brand new despite plenty of play. This is a big plus to me with six children now, and hopefully more in the future. The penguin framework makes this game very enjoyable to my middle four children (ages 8 down to 2 1/2), and even my almost 10-year-old is willing to join in on occasion!. And of course, there's the educational value of a memory-building game.

One of the biggest pluses to this game is it fits a wide range of skill levels. Even my 2 1/2-year-old, who hasn't grasped the idea of remembering which colors were where, can enjoy looking under two penguins. He's thrilled to death when he gets a match, because all of his older siblings applaud him. Though he rarely wins playing against his older siblings, he is still able to play along with them. As there is a significant element of chance because of the rolls, it's not always the one with the best memory who wins either.

I am very glad to have purchased this game. I also bought it as a gift for my nieces and nephews who enjoyed it also. I'd highly recommed it for families with preschoolers and early elementary aged children.

We bought this game as a Christmas present for my youngest daughter, who will be 3 next month.

It's turned out to be a huge hit with her on a couple of different levels.

The game itself is fun, brief, simple to understand, and fast-paced. Perfect for kids maybe 2-4 years who don't often get to join in for family game time due to a lack of attention span or lack of comprehension of the rules of more complex games. Really, the only skill needed to play this game is an awareness of different colors, though it could certainly be used as a teaching aid for children who don't yet know their colors.

The gameplay is simple. Each of the 12 penguins is placed in a central location, each hiding an egg beneath him/her. There are 6 different colors of eggs, 2 of each color. Each player has a wooden strip that looks like an iceberg, with the numbers 1-6 on it. Each player rolls two dice in turn. Each die has 6 matching color dots on it. After rolling the dice, the player gets two chances to find the corresponding colors beneath the penguins.... And so on until one player gets 6 penguins with the correct egg color on their iceberg, or until all the penguins are gone (then the player with the most penguins is the winner).

There is an element of memory to this game, but there is also - it seems - an almost stronger element of chance. So if you're not on even ground, say an adult versus a child, you don't have to 'dumb down' playing to compensate for their lack of skill in this department. The limited number of penguins certainly contributes to memory playing a very loose role, and a child can often win in earnest by sheer chance. I see this as a good thing, since I'm not overly fond of anything I have to think too hard about not playing well for the kids' sake.

My kindergarten and first-grade students love this game. It is extremely durable (being all wood) and pleasing to look at. My students are increasing their attention span and are enjoying doing it!

We play this game every night and my little boy loves it and he does not typically like board games. He enjoys lifting the penguins up to check which egg is underneath...I believe it is really improving his memory and ability to follow direction. The game is all wooden, high quality, and easy to store back in the box. A very cute game which gets a lot of use around my house.

Blue Orange Games actually plants two trees for every one used. If only other companies could be this responsible. They totally won me over with that straight away without ever seeing the toys, I confess. But my first experience with one of their games is a big success in terms of sheer fun factor.

The award winning Pengaloo is visually appealing and features an element of surprise. Players try to find colored eggs (hiding under the wooden penguins) corresponding to the colors on dice. It's a little more involved than straight "Concentration" but basically the same idea, it's a memory game. There are suggestions in the pamphlet for variations and of course, you can make up your own.

I'm a big fan of board games and think it's a great way to bond with your child. On day one, I played this game with my son for a good hour, with lots of "Let's do it again!" Then he continued to play by himself for another hour. He's gone back to it many times since and says it's one of his favorite toys already.

On a practical note, the box, made of recycled and recyclable cardboard, is sturdy and designed to house all the pieces nicely for easy cleanup and storage. I highly recommend this toy.
