A 3D building game for younger builders with real wooden blocks!
Each player has their own wooden building blocks and races to be the first one to complete the structure shown on the building card.
In Make 'N' Break Junior, children try to be the first in recreating the structure shown on the building card in the middle, using their own set of building blocks. There are two different types of building cards for various skill levels: building cards with yellow edging show buildings consisting of 3 or 4 building blocks and building cards with red edging show buildings consisting of 5 or 6 building blocks. For every successfully completed building, players win a chip. Be the first to collect 10 chips and become Master Builder!
Master Builder in the Making
Steady hands and speed are needed to recreate the structures shown on the building cards, down to the position of the blocks. With each turn, players must move quickly and precisely, practicing crucial hand-eye coordination skills. Make 'N' Break Junior trains shape recognition as well as basic counting skills and hones children's ability to concentrate and maintain composure under pressure while developing strategic reasoning. The sturdy wooden blocks provide a tactile appeal and promote fine motor skills.

There are two levels of block building (yellow cards and red cards). My daughter uses the more simple yellow cards, while us adults have the red cards and also a one-handed handicap. With that system, out of the 6 games we've played, my daughter has won 3 so we're just about even playing that way.
Some people have said it's too simple for kids over 5. I can see that, however, it's sort of fun to try to build crazy fast and then snatch the "done" block from the center of the table without knocking over your stuff. But really, yes, I would say that this is more of a preschool age game - perhaps 6 years at the upper limit. But that's okay, because there's a version of this game targeted at older kids, too. Just pick up Ravensburger Make 'N' Break - Family Game.
As for me, I'm happy to have some variation on the same old same old rolling the dice and moving a specified number of spaces game. This is a really neat concept and a fun way for me and my preschooler to spend an evening.
This was just not challenging enough for our 7 year old son, the game was too easy and too simple, so it wasn't fun for him.
We recently got Creationary by Lego and the whole family loved it, it's a similar idea in that you are building structures pictured on cards you choose. But the game is challenging and has different levels of difficulty and you need to use your imagination to both build and guess what the creation is.
If you are looking for a fun building game for children ages 7 and up (fun for adults too) I would highly recommend the Creationary game by Lego.
This game might be fun for you and your children if they are very young or if their abilities are such that building simple structures would be challenging and fun for them.
Unfortunately we just weren't the right audience for this game.
You don't have to play by the rules & for kids, you can ask them how many cube sections it took to build the picture on the card to teach geometry too!
We had these blocks up to around 3rd or 4th grade, then had to do more with the block sets, which are made of wood w/ a nice finish.
Great game for ALL pre-K to elementary school kids.. just have to graduate the rules based on ability &/or age-group.
Teaches kids about math in a "non-threatening" way.
The competition is great for some kids, others is more about spacial relationships. Handicaps can go far beyond the levels of the game. Block sets for teachers & home-schoolers are expensive & often made of plastic. Nice to have these made of wood again!
Great to give kids other options as well for those that have a hard time with spacial relationships, yet all kids need to learn this, AND competition that they'll face in life too, but if always loosing, may not be their cup of tea, so just getting those kids that are slower to get comfortable with making what's on the cards is useful.
Nicely made game by today's standards! Kids that had "baby blocks", or that have a knack for geometry will likely do far better with the game. Multiplication will be easier when kids master the blocks when they get older.
Adding a timer & having kids try to beat their old times is a great way to help them learn the more challenging builds.
Great stuff... Simple, but a great "MUST HAVE" in ANY child's resources!
I will say, the challenge level is perfect for her, but I can't see how this would entertain her as she gets much older. The age range on the box (5-15) doesn't seem accurate. I cannot see a 15 year old being interested in this at all. My wife thought it was too easy and found no interest in it at all. My youngest daughter just throws the pieces around, so we play this when she goes down for a nap. Like I said, my eldest loves it. It is perfect for her age.
There are enough cards to offer plenty of different buildings to build, and I love that it challenges her to really think about what she's doing and how she places her blocks in order to keep her building up. It may not teach her a lot of things, but she is learning to `think' about what she does, which is important. It has a limit to the amount of usage you'll get out of it, but for a toy that will keep my five year old interested and engaged, this works really well. I've heard that the Lego variation of the same concept is more advanced and offers different levels of challenge, so maybe that would be ideal for families with older kids, but for us this works just fine for the time being.

Great Game for children and family! I do think it's for a younger age range than listed. Great for family time!!!Published on June 14, 2013 by Audrey Chin
Based on my observations, kids aged mature-4 to 6 seem to enjoy this the most. The game is a simpler version of the adult version without the timer. Read morePublished on May 13, 2013 by Amazon Customer
