My 9 year old gave this game 4 and ¾ star out of 5 . His comments on the game - `It is a great game, one of the best word searches I have ever done. Some are easy but most are really tough and challenging. It is fun and sometimes frustrating because I cannot find the words, gives me an idea of future word puzzles and I definitely encourage other people to play it. It is good for kids 6 and above.' (The last comment is because he saw his little sister play and enjoy it)

My 6 year old loved it when she found the words, she enjoyed it when they were backwards or upside down. She tried to make up stories using the words in each word set after she had found them. She mainly played the easy level and watched her older brother play the harder levels.

My comments - This is a twist on the fun and classic word search game. Bright, colorful, and transparent tiles that are shaped are used to cover the found words. Beginner puzzles are easier with small words and small word sets which are easily found. As levels progress, clues for the words are given instead of the words themselves and the clues also get harder with each level. I enjoyed playing at all the levels myself. A great family game which can be played alone or together. It helps improve vocabulary, logical thinking, problem solving, and observation powers. Good to take along for travel or long waits for appointments. The only con I notice is that once we complete all the levels, it is done; but hopefully, we can get more puzzles to print out online at the ThinkFun website or even make up puzzles for each other to play.

This is no ordinary word search. It's not just special because of the colorful and translucent tetris-like pieces that act as scanning windows. That component is awesome but what amazed me was that a veteran learning specialist I consulted taught me how the practices used by the kids in Pathwords Jr. were teaching the kind of flexibility required for building strengths in reading.

There are tricks here and there are hints too. Together, they work to help children build their vocabulary which is obviously really important for comprehending the words you read. Sometimes you'll actually have to know the meanings of words and their connection to the other words to be able to solve the puzzle. This is not a feature in an average word search but Pathwords Jr. does this so cleverly and the benefits become so apparent that you wonder why all word searches are not created this way.

Top that with these special word-finding puzzle pieces that will undoubtedly appeal to the kids who like to manipulate things with their fingers and like using visual-spatial skills for learning. Thus, you'll find that there are features here that pretty much appeal to many different types of learning styles.

I recently had the pleasure of reviewing this game last month for my toy review website but this purchase here was made by me after my review was completed because I wanted to buy a birthday gift for my friend's daughter. This child likes reading very much but has never loved spatial reasoning puzzles or building blocks but something told me that Pathwords Jr. would sort of "hit the spot." And it did!

I bought this as Christmas time as a lightning deal. I am so glad I did! My son turned 4 shortly before Christmas and he LOVES it. It has a book that has a variety of different difficulty levels. It is easy for him to slide the book out and turn the page to a new puzzle. It also tells you on the page which block paths you will need to solve the puzzle. The path pieces fit with the book inside the case so everything stays together. I would highly recommend this for any beginning reader.

We were given Pathwords Jr. by Think Fun to review.

Instead of writing only what I thought about the game and how our boys played it, I decided to make up a survey for them to fill out after playing the game.

WOW. What can I say? They loved playing Pathwords Jr. and giving their honest opinion about it. Here's what they had to say:

8 yr. old: He thought the game was 'a little hard and fun'. "I liked searching for the words. I would change the hints." (I asked him what he meant by changing the hints and he said, "Make them harder." He's the Brainiac. And they DID get harder as we progressed through beginner to advanced--he wanted to play the hardest one!)

7 yr. old: He thought the game was 'very hard and fun". " It was so fun! Change the tiles because you might get mixed up." (The tiles truly are perfect! It was hard for him to figure out which way the tiles went for some of the word searches and that is EXACTLY the point, to challenge while learning. I will add he has a few developmental delays and it was genuinely challenging for him at times and I was very pleased with the level of difficulty. It really wasn't too hard for him, although that is what he perceived, but he did it himself!)

6 yr. old: He thought the game was 'a little hard and fun'. "I like the game. It is fun." (Lol. Straight to the point. He is hearing impaired and those are some pretty awesome complete thoughts/sentences for him, so I went with it. He really did enjoy this game. He is very visual because of his hearing impairment which played in his favor. He quickly found the words at the beginner level;faster than his 7 yr. old brother.

We four had a really fun Saturday morning playing this game together. I love Pathwords Jr. It gently progresses from beginner to more challenging puzzles. Think Fun aged it appropriately at Ages 6+. We love THINK FUN games!
