Product Description

The POOF-Slinky 0X4266 Ideal The Storybook Card Game tests your memory and creativity by looking at picture cards to create fun and silly stories that are different every time. The storybooks are all mixed up and all the characters and objects need a story! Play starts with the first player starting a story by saying, Once upon a time... as he turns over the top card of the deck. The player includes the object on the card in this sentence, making up whatever he or she wants as long as the item on the card is included in the sentence. Example: If the first card turned over is the alien the player may say Once upon a time, there was an alien who came to Earth. The player then places the card back on the top of the deck, face down and passes the deck to the next player. That player then turns over next card and adds this object to the story. Example: If the second player's card is the Lollipop, the player may say, Once upon a time, there was an alien who came to Earth because he was looking for a lollipop. As play continues, if a player forgets the object on a card or says the wrong item he or she is out of the game. The winner is the last player remaining in the game. Ideal's The Storybook Game is designed for 2+ players, comes in a collectible mini tin lunch box storage container and includes (54) cards and instructions for (2) levels of game play.

The game is simple. A deck of cards with a pictures on eah one. Turn one over and begin a story based on the image, then take turns turning over cards and adding a line to the story based on the picture. It's an excellent language challenge for everyone, Kid's that like to talk will like to play and kid's that have a hard time expressing will benefit from the structure and visual clues. I play with a 5 year old who loves it. I also bring it to school and play with my 6-9th graders.

I bought this for my four year old and she loves it. The best part is that it is one of the few games that we play that adults can also enjoy. I think that older kids would enjoy it as well. We don't usually play by the rules though (I thought it might be a bit hard for my daughter to remember so many cards). We simply put out three or four cards and take turns telling a story about them. Also, this way there is no winner or loser (for those kids that don't want to play games they might lose). The longer we have been playing this game the more elaborate my daughter's stories have become. It is a wonderful game to spark her imagination and help with sequencing skills.

I use this game in speech therapy for my middle and high school students. It is simple in its concept, just a real test of concentration and recalll. I love the sturdy container it comes in. This is a real plus in keeping the game easily stored without losing the cards. I feel this is a good value for a multiagency game. I can see adults enjoying this game as well.

Although it's fairly simple, this is a great game for exercising a child's creativity. My daughter has enjoyed this game even though she as only 3yo when we first got it.

POSITIVE: the lunchbox bin is a great storage compartment & it makes for a nice traveling game. The child can also play by themselves & there's no reading required so a very young child can play it by him/herself or with as many others as he/she wants.

NEGATIVE: It doesn't seem to have the "varieties & options" factor that some other toys have to keep a child's interest (this is the only reason I refrained from giving it 5 stars)

I first discovered this game playing with my grandchildren. I now use it in my counseling practice. It is a useful tool in getting children to use their imaginations, engage in storytelling and interact. I highly recommend it for fun and therapeutic uses.

This game is wonderful for the imagination of small and even big children! As you make up the story from the
picture on the card, the child can let their imagination go anywhere, and as an adult playing with the child,
you can expand on their knowledge of how to make interesting and fun stories.

I love this game! My daughter got it for her 4th birthday and it is a wonderful way for her to use her imagination. This is a game the whole family actually enjoys playing together. My one disappointment is that the rules ask each player to recited the entire story before adding to it with their next card. She got bored and frustrated with the repetition. I understand the purpose of this rule, and it was fine for a while, but it really slowed the game down and I could see her interest waning after 10 or 15 cards. She just wanted to bust out the creativity! We now play by just adding to the story, but will try following the intended rules when she gets a little older.

I have 5 kids between the ages of 9 and 18mo. They all love the game. We have played it several times and they all love it. We took it to a family gathering and everyone had a great time playing, from the kids to the grandparents. Even the college age Aunts had a great time. Wonderful game. I would recomend it to anyone looking for a fun and easy game for all ages!
