This was purchased with my 4 year old stepbaby in mind, though his 6 year old brother found himself enjoying it, too!
It's SUPER simple. This is a game for kids who have a hard time processing rules of more complicated games. Basically, you put the tokens in the picnic basket. On each turn the player asks, "May I have a token, please?" and you respond, "Yes, you may." They take a token which is either a picnic item of their color, another player's color, or an ant. They either keep the token or discard it. Then the player says, "Thank you." To win, you collect each of your color picnic items.
The boys LOVED "catching" their daddy and myself not using our manners! Ok, we pretended and over-emphasized so they'd catch it, but they had fun! Sometimes we'd slip in, "gimme a token!" or "I wannnnnnnaaaaa token!" in the way that they ask for things so that they'd recognize some of their own poor behaviors.
It's not a forever game. I think that most kids can easily start playing this when they start becoming interested in games, no matter what age is written on the box. I'd start them on this one even before Candyland, if that describes the simplicity enough. I'm definitely going to keep this game for the baby to enjoy when he's old enough.
Basically each player has several tokens they place in a cute picnic basket. In turn you pull a token out of the basket (without looking.) You must use your manners and request to pull a token. If you forget to use your manners then you don't get to pull a token. If your token matches your picnic then you place it on your picnic area. If it is an ant or another players token, then it's placed on the center of the blanket for another player to use in turn.
The game is sturdy and very cute but it did not hold my son's attention for repeated playing.

Overall, the game itself is just ok. My son and I just play and match the discs to the board. But the big winner is the CD and the book. Read morePublished on October 7, 2011 by HC

This game was a hit the first few times it was played with my 3 and 5 year olds. They rarely played more than once in a sitting and found it to be repetative and boring. Read morePublished on August 10, 2011 by nyok

Great educational toy. I wouldn't say it teaches manners, however it does allow ample opprotunity to "practice" good manners. Read morePublished on January 12, 2010 by A. Baran
