This is a very nice puzzle for making sentences. The sentence structure is enforced by the way the puzzle pieces fit together. Here's what you get: 40 nouns, 12 adjectives, 2 articles, 4 verbs, 2 prepositions. With these can create 16 sentences at a time. Of the 12 adjectives, there are 3 colors and words like big, happy, scary, furry. 4 verbs are "ate", "saw", "climbed", and "jumped" -- the last two require using "over" or "on" because of the way the puzzle pieces fit together.
For my daughter (nearly 6) it was good for learning about the parts of a sentence and sentence structure. She wasn't interested in the silliness as she was interested in making "real" sentences. On the other hand, my son (nearly 4) loved the silliness. For him the game was helpful for getting him interested in the concepts of words and sentences.
While there is room for improvement, this game works very well for making silly sentences. It is a very good introduction to reading and good for several half hours of fun. The 124 puzzle pieces, while it seems like a lot, still limits the breadth of sentences you can explore. Overall, I recomend it, especially for the younger end of the recommended 4-7 year age range.

While initially fun, the fact that the game comes with only four verbs--ate, jumped, climbed and saw--makes it hard to hold even a four-year-old's attention for long.

I use this game at school with first and second graders. They love it, and it's a great way to get them using descriptive words, capitals and periods. It's also very durable. I've used the same game with 20+ kids for three years.

My kid has this game in her classroom. i wanted her to have more practice outside of class. It's a fun learning game. I wish there were a few more word options. I'm sure they keep it simple for beginning learners. But I find my kid wanting to add words. So we write them on paper and add them to the sentence line. But each piece is a puzzle piece connection, making the scrap paper additions look sloppy. So it would be nice if there were blank puzzle pieces that they could write in dry erase marker to make up their own words.

The game has a big selection of nouns, but needs more adjectives, verbs and adverbs. And blank puzzle pieces that can be inserted for learners custom words.

I purchased this product to use with several ESL students that I tutor. So far I have used it with K-5 students, and all have enjoyed it. Even my more advanced English language learners got a kick out of the silly sentences and as a teacher I appreciate that it reinforces parts of speech and articles which are sometimes challenging for these students. My only complaint is that the verbs are limited, but I think my advanced students could make a project out of creating their own puzzle pieces. All in all, a helpful tool for kids new to english.

My kids have played Silly Sentences with their enrichment teacher & liked it so much that I thought I would buy it for them & we could play at home. A fun way to play & learn at the same time. Anyway this version of Silly Sentences doesn't have the spin wheel or game board according to what my 8 & 6-yo tell me. They said that their teachers game is better. This just has the different word groups & you pick from the different colored piles to form a sentence. I don't think the sentences are as silly compared to the other version where you spin the wheel. But for what I paid for it I guess it's worth it, but certainly wished we had the other version.

I'm so disappointed! My son had gotten this game for his 2 daughters to play. We all played and loved it! When I ordered it to use with my RtI students - kdg. and 1st graders, the game I received was very scaled down as compared to my son's game. No board, no cube (as cheesy as it was) which totally changed the game! No shaking of a die, no moving around a board. Took a lot of the fun for the little ones at home and at school. No fun way to acquire an article, noun or verb. Haven't really figured out how to play this game as it is right now. Wish I could return it! Please bring back the original game - no it wasn't perfect but so much more fun for the kiddos!

It needs more variety, especially with the verbs, but my 1st grader likes making long, crazy sentences with this game. It's a fun way to introduce or reinforce parts of speech. Also, I wish it had commas so those long sentences could be punctuated properly.
