Cooperative Play for a Rainy Day!
With Mother out of the house for the day, The Cat in the Hat has brought Thing One and Thing Two to play! Oh, but these Things run about with bumps, thumps, and kicks. Work together to clean up their mess before Mother comes home. It’s cooperative fun for everyone.
- Launch the Thing Top onto the rug in the red living room inside the game board. Once the top stops moving remove it from the game board.
- On your turn, draw a card and do the action shown. You might get to launch the top, clean up pieces of furniture, use a net to block the Thing One or Thing Two card the next time it's played, or move Mother forward toward the front door.
- The game ends as soon as Mother reaches the last space on the path (inside the door mat). If all the furniture pieces are on a star symbol, the players win. If any items are out of place, the the players lose.
Great Fit For:
- Teaching your child about teamwork and cooperation.
- Children exploring their physical dexterity.
- Playdates for two.

The only bad thing I have to mention is the type of material they use for the objects that you set up in the house. It's a weak, pliable plastic material, so it's hard to get things to stay upright sometimes. The legs on tables get bent awkwardly and longer items tend to lean. Some items are meant to sit on top of other items and it can be a bit of a balancing act. You can straighten/adjust them but you constantly stand things back up the whole game. It doesn't take away from the overall fun of the game though. Just adds a few seconds of play/setup time here and there.
First of all, the board is made up of the bottom of the game box with a couple of separators to create a "house" with three rooms. It looks so cute and very Dr. Seuss-y. There are doorways between the rooms and then a front walk with spaces on it for the mother to go on. Then there are several plastic things that belong in the house - furniture, such as bookshelves or end tables and a grandfather clock, and other little things like a telephone or a fish bowl or flower in a vase. There are stars on the floor to mark where the items belong. You set up the house with all of the items, and this is where it was a little frustrating for me - some of the items do not stand up very well. This is because they are meant to be kind of crazy and crooked in a Dr. Seuss kind of style. The plastic is a little bendy and if you work at it you can get the items to stand up fine.
There is a fun top that you wind up and then push a button to release it into the house, causing chaos and messing up furniture and such just like Thing 1 and Thing 2 do in the Cat in the Hat book. Cards are drawn which tell you to either release the top into a certain room, clean up a certain room, clean up something of a certain color, clean up 2 things, or move the mother along the front path to get to the front door. The game is a teamwork game where all of the players are on the same team, trying to get the house cleaned up before the mother gets home. It is a fun game for little ones - our kids ages 3 to 9 enjoyed it - and is nice that it's not competitive for a change. It's also fun that it encourages cleaning up.
Overall, this game isn't perfect but is so cute and is a fun game to play as a family.
-no batteries required! i don't like buying toys that requires wasting money on batteries. so this was very nice set up. also, this is a great COOPERATIVE game (either everyone wins or loses together). since most things in life require you to work well with others, i'm trying to avoid the games which foster competitive nature.
-as previously stated, the board is the bottom of the box and flimsy cardboard inserts slide together as wall dividers of the "house.
-the furniture pieces are mostly tall and skinny, easier for the spinning top to knock down. however, the pieces fall over SO easily that my 5 yr old has a hard time playing the game (placing furniture upright) without nudging the board or other furniture. she's just a regular 5 yr old where a finger or something moves the wall dividers and then lots of furniture fall down. then, you may forget which pieces were already fallen down by the spinning top or the pieces that she accidentally knocked down.
-the entertaining part for me is that the spinning top is "too good". it spins so well that is actually stays in place for quite a few seconds before finally knocks something down. i guess they should have built a more unstable spinning top to do more damage? haha.
-it entertained my 5yr old and 3yr old. they were giving the whole "oh nooo!!" when they drew a "thing" card. for now, its a cute game, but too soon to say if its a "favorite" game. well, i love it!
