Rating is based on what our almost two year old son thinks about the game.

I'm rating this for how well my 2 year old has responded to the game. She loves the game and we play it many different ways. She'll even get the game from the shelf herself and start playing on her own. It's well done and perfect for 2-3 year olds.

A multifunctional memory game for the youngest of gamers.

As others have said, one of the few games actually designed with a 2 year old in mind and therefore quite good for Ages 2-3. Almost no other game was doable at 2 years old but as our son approached 3 there we lots of other HABA games or similar he could play after this game. I'd consider it a must for the right aged child but you could probably skip it easily if your child is already 3 (I'd start with something like Hopple Popple then instead).

Great game to introduce young ones (you could start at 18 months) to gaming. The large game pieces make it easy to handle, it improves vocabulary, teaches task completion and game can be played differently as child grows. Plus it is over so quickly parents will not get board ;)

It is incredible to see a child go from not being able to play to completely understanding in a short period. At a young age they simple match the pictures, which may seem dull but can be a lot of fun with a young child. Also the game evolves with the child adding competitive or co-operative game play.

Not a GREAT game but for what it is, it works really well. I can't really rate it as I would only ever play it becuase my daughter likes it, and the rating scale I use doesn't apply. That said as long as she likes it I'll be more than happy to play it with her cause it's something fun we can do together. It is well designed in that it's simple but the game changes as the child grows to become slightly more complex to challenge them more and extend it's lifetime of use.

One of the few kids games that's actually aimed at the two year old gamer, and not the two-almost-three gamer. The game targets language development by having kids match large, illustrated pieces to their appropriate location on a board, saying the word as they place the piece. While too simple for adults and older kids, it's exactly right for the little ones. Besides vocabulary development, the game also exercises visual perception and matching items to their environment (the eggs belong in the store and not the playroom, etc.). It's a simple game, but very well focused for the target audience. The game includes variations to play it as a memory game, making it more suitable for slightly older kids. Kiddie fun factor is high according to my daughter, who asks to play it ("Li-no! Li-no!") at least twice a day. Her twin brother isn't such a fan, but he'll play along from time to time. We'll call it a 7 on the balance. And it gets a bonus point from me for being educational. Unfortunately, Ravensburger doesn't sell this game in the US. I ordered it from Owl's Hollow in Canada, paying a rather high price for the privilege. Still, there aren't many other choices that are designed for two year olds, so I consider it money well spent.

Good game for the smallest gamers. It teaches matching, helping others (in some variants), taking turns, and memory. It is safe for very young children who eat pawns, and takes only a few minutes to play.
