|Chutes And Ladders Children Board Gametravel along the game path they encounter situations that reward them for good deeds by letting them climb the ladders or punish them for misbehaving by sending them down chutes. All the while they are learning to recognize numbers and count to 100|
Austin is a 4 year old boy. He enjoyed this game and learned some life long lessons too. Great Toy!
It was my favorite as a child. It's my daughter's (age 5) favorite game. It's also very educational. Her counting and basic math skills have greatly improved.
Terrific Family Game12/5/2008
A game my whole family enjoys.My 3yr. old and 6 yr. old can even play it on their own.
Age Appropriate Fun12/5/2008
My six year old daughter received the game Chutes and Ladders as a gift. She set up the game without much of my help, including propping the characters in the white slots. Once the colorful gameboard was set up, I sat down to play it with her. As we went through the gameboard, climbing up the ladders and sliding down the chutes, we realized how many of the situations pictured she encounters all the time. She landed on the space where the cookie jar breaks and she had to slide down the ladder. It reminded her of her own experience with a broken cookie jar, and she realized that all children face similar situations at one time or another. It was a great way for me to teach her how to deal with circumstances while she was enjoying herself. The spinner is also more exciting than a conventional die, and is also safer for her two-year old brother that was sitting on my lap. She also played the game with our neighbors, ages 5 and 7. They loved it and didn't need Mommy's help to set it up or to read any questions. The bright illustrations didn't need any explaining! Great game for suggested age range!
It was very easy ordering and the product arrived very quickly. The package arrived without any problems.
Board Games Never Go Out of Style12/5/2008
My four year old nephew loves his new Chutes and Ladders Game. Nothing wrong with going back to my own childhood. Still a great and fun way to teach your child the benefits of taking turns.
It's a classic12/5/2008
What can I say, it's a classic. No childhood is complete without Chutes and Ladders...and it helps the little ones learn to count and take turns.
Perfect for young beginners12/5/2008
This is her first game board. It was simple and we love the fact that she can still learn while playing it. She is learning to be patient, also that someone else can be first to start the game, reinforcing her numbers, etc. I will defintely purchase others to so her and her girl pals can have even more fun.
I love this game!!12/5/2008
This is the classic Chutes and Ladders game!! I loved it as a kid and I love it as an adult!! And my daughter loves it!!
Too old for him12/5/2008
My son turned 3 and received many board games this year. Most of the games he can play, but this one seems to distract him more. I think 3 1/2 is closer to the appropriate age. He just wants to slide and climb the ladders instead of moving his piece to the right space
5 & 7 yr old loved it12/5/2008
Game was good for both ages 5 & 7, enjoy playing togeather. Even older brother & sister, played with them.....A good game
Bought as a gift for donation12/5/2008
The description of the product said it was for ages 4 - 7 and had pictures of school aged children on it. The version I received seemed to have been redesigned because it had pictures of toddlers on it and was for ages 3+. I was a little upset because this was for a donation for a 7 yr old. It was a specific request from a gift tree and I had no choice but to donate it. I couldn't find another anywhere else, and I'm not sure it is available anyways.
Great "first" board game12/5/2008
This game is very enjoyable for my 3 1/2 year-old granddaughter. It makes a very good "first" board game.
They loved it12/5/2008
Their Lab had destroyed their previous Chutes and Ladders, so this was a replacement. They were very happy to get it.
confusing to my 4 year old12/5/2008
My 4 year old still finds this confusing. Sometimes I find myself starting to move in the wrong direction. The numbers could be made more visable. I'm sure it will become more fun for my son as he ages.
great game for my 5 year old granddaughter12/5/2008
