We are a gaming family. We love board games, card games and video games. Out of the many, many games we have in our house, this has got to be the most educational and fun at the same time combo game. My children (3 and 4 when we bought it, now almost 5 and 6 years old) consistently come back and ask to play this game. It teaches patience in taking turns, and great letter recognition (early reading skills) and social interaction.

Taking turns - It is still engaging while you are waiting for your turn. One player can operate the board and call out the letters and pictures, while the other plays trying to find the various letters on the mat.

Social interaction - we cheer each other on, and interact to help each other find and reach for the right letter or picture.

Letter recognition - to play you look at the letters that come up on the chips on the board, then find those same letters or pictures on the mat. You place the corresponding body part (ear, hand, foot) on the letter on the mat. It's a silly game, which captivates easily distracted young ones, and "tricks" them into learning.

This game earns it's critic acclaims (It has won the Oppenheim Platinum Toy Award). I keep thinking at some point my kids will outgrow this, but they love it still. We love it so much we have purchased one for my son's kindergarten classroom.

Don't pass this game up. I cannot say enough good about it. The only incredibly small issue I have is the little "collection boxes" that you use to hold your chips are a bit flimsy cardboard, but nothing a bit of tape cannot fix if needed. Also, it's good to get 3-4 ziploc bags to contain all the pieces in an organized fashion.

The first thing I noticed when I opened the box was that there was nothing to assemble. All of the cards and chips were punched out, and put it their own tiny zip-top bag. The "toy boxes" used to collect the chips were also already assembled. This seems to be unheard of now-a-days. The box the game comes in is also nicely constructed, and will help keep all of the pieces inside.

As far as game play goes, my kids really enjoyed it. What works well, is that unlike twister, each player takes a turn on his/her own. This allowed us to have a bit different rules for my younger child than my older. Per the suggestion of a previous reviewer, we had my 2.5 year old son, who is still learning to read his alphabet, just find the letter, and touch it with the proper body part, instead of trying to touch all of the letters at once. This is really helping him identify his letters. However, after watching his older sister try to touch them all at once, he tried to do it that way, too. So maybe next time we'll try to have him play that way. I also tried to play with them... it just reminded me how inflexible I am :). It is really silly trying to watch everyone try to touch everything at once.

I also liked how the chips come out displaying either the letter, or a picture. This was great because it allowed for my 5 year old to think about her reading skills when determining the starting letter of the words. For my 2.5 year old, I would just flip the chips over to display the letters.

I also liked that it's easy to make your own "house rules" for this game. Play it the way that makes the most sense for your family.

Another thing I liked is that the winner of the game is random, and not based no the number of chips received.

Purchased this product for a November 2009 birthday. The recipient was a four year old boy. It kept his attention and he enjoyed the competition. He was a little too short to stretch all items, but we compensated for him. It was fun for all of us playing. It challenged his ability to follow directions and execute the required movement and would be considered age appropriate.

We purchased this game for our 4.5 year old daughter after playing some of the other cat in the hat games. I thought that it would be a little more like twister but it is basically a 'horseshoe' shaped map with letters (and words corresponding to those letters) on the horseshoe. You then have another part of the game which is the letter assigner that you spin and get letters assigned that you have to put hands, feet, and an ear on.

As far as difficulty, it is as difficult as you want it to be. Our daughter has been doing physical therapy to catch up to her classmates and that is why this toy intrigued us. It is very good in that way as she has to work on core strength and balance to get to all of the letters. But nothing in the game says that you have to get them all each time.

I wonder how much educational value it has though. The player must identify what letter they need to be standing on, but for our daughter this was a minimal task.

In conclusion, one month out from getting the game and our daughter still enjoys playing it. Great team building as you can cheer each other on. It is a durable product, but it does have a lot of parts (mainly the letter disks and feet) that could get lost (oh yeah forgot about the cards.) It would still be a strong recommend in my book.
