Top Customer Reviews
The game board consists of 120 robot heads -- all of which have unique color combinations and none two robots are the same. The object of the game is to be the fastest player to find a robot with a specific color combination. The game also comes with a "robot randomizer", a plastic contraption picturing robot face parts and small colored balls that are covered by a clear bubble. This clever design allows players to shake the randomizer so that each ball rolls towards different face part. Players then have to analyze the color combination and match the colors for each face part to find the corresponding robot on the board. The first player to spot the robot face puts a scoring token on top of it. If their guess is correct, they get to keep this token; if their guess is incorrect, they sit out the next round (which is a good rule when you have children with impulsivity control issues). The first person with five tokens is the winner.
THE EDUCATIONAL VALUE FOR SPEECH THERAPY & BEYOND
This game is a great tool for students working on improving their visual tracking / discrimination skills and impulsivity control. And, as with most games, you can "speechify" this one and use it to work on language targets. Here are just a few ideas:
•Describing: You can use the different robot faces to target describing goals. One student could describe a specific robot (e.g., "My robot has a rectangular blue head with three green eyes, a yellow triangular nose, and a smiling purple mouth") while the other students have to listen and find the match.
•Comparing / Contrasting: Have students pick two robots and compare and contrast them
•Following directions: You can work on listening comprehension by giving directions, such as: "Place a token underneath a yellow robot / between a blue and a green robot, etc.
The versatility and durability of this game is what makes it so great for use in Speech therapy. Another reason I love this game is because it requires no batteries!
Highly recommended for both educators and parents!
The box is a colorful and very inviting for children to want to open and begin to play the game. There are a few parts which make it very convenient: board, robot randomized, 25 tokens.
The object of the game is to shake the robot randomizer and match it with the exact features on the board and place your token on the board. Whoever gets 5 tokens wins first. For example, I might shake a yellow head, red mouth, orange nose, and green eyes. I would then have to find the robot on the board with those exact features and place my token on that robot.
I have a 2, 5, and 7 yr old. My 2 year old just liked shaking the robot randomizer, but I also just had her match the tokens to the colors on the board whenever I played it with her. Before playing, as a parent I would explain to your child how to look for the biggest feature (head), then the eyes, and then mouth or nose. Another thing that helped my girls is that I would verbally repeat saying I'm looking for something with a yellow head (pause), with red eyes (pause) with blue nose (pause) and purple mouth. This games teaches memory, order, visual discrimination, and careful observation/monitoring. I was looking at the game more from a fun perspective but as a former reading specialist I can verify the importance of having visual discrimination as a pre-reading skill. That's why kids may mix up the letters f or t because they just see a stick Instead of the curve feature of the letter. Also this game helps with visual scanning from left to right a skill children will help them learn in reading. I noticed my 5 yr old scanned randomly so I taught her how to look left to right and then a return sweep for the robot.
I recommend those who may have children with different abilities to modify the game. The seven year old played the game according to the rules but our 5 yr old needed us to modify with her looking for two features (head and eyes), then three features (head, eyes, nose) and eventually worked up to four features.
I would recommend this game to others. It is fun and educational too. My girls didn't get tired of playing this game. It was neat to see them all looking quietly for the matching robot.
Also it would be neat if they provided a travel version of this game. I could see my children being occupied quietly playing this game on long road trips.
I got this game set up for family game night and this time, we let the really little ones stay up. Usually the adults pick a game and play when the kids go to sleep as they cannot keep up with the adult games but this game was different. The game play is simple. After mixing up the robot randomizer, each player has to race to find the correct face. There are so many options. Such as blue face, yellow eyes, red nose, and purple mouth. There is so much going on and such a busy game board that you never know who is going to find the face first.
This game actually surprised me. When we played it with the kids, some were faster then the adults. After the kids went to sleep we had an adults only game, and it was great. Some adults got the faces right away while other adults had a really difficult time. Rather then using age appropriate skills for this game, this game uses scanning to play. What I discovered is either you have it or you don't. One of the special needs kids I played with had it while I by far did not. As a matter of fact I this is such an important skill, that I will be using this game as part of my work as well as for future family game nights.
If you are looking for a game that will make family game night fun for the whole family, Robot Face Race is one of them. It really test your ability to scan and find.
