[as a kid's game] Fun, light recognition game, suitable for kids ages 3-5. I think it would lose its appeal pretty quickly once you're familiar with the items represented. Still, for the price point (about $7) the game features great quality components, clear rules and a gameplay experience that helps stretch a kid's mind... Reinhard Staupe is a fabulous designer of children's games.

Pretty good speed/recognition game that my kids have enjoyed. The main problem I can see in playing with my kids is that the game is basic enough that the older kids will have to hold back when playing against the younger ones. That kind of takes some of the fun out of it.

This is a great game for kids to learn their alphabet as well as build their vocab.

Ooh a little higher, now a bit to the left, a little more, a little more, just a bit more. Oooh yes, that's the spot!

Not a bad letter/word association game for young kids. I'm not 100% sold on the idea of reinforcing letter/picture relationships (ie: 'a is for apple') for the simple reason that later someone has to come along and teach the exceptions to the rule ('a' makes the 'a' sound like in apple, but it can also bay an 'ay' sound as in baby, or the 'ar' sound as in aunty and so forth) (differences are more noticable with letters like 'c' - celery vs coke). Still, you can't expect a little game like this to reflect phonographic relationships fully - it does an admirable job of what it was designed to do.

The first game is boring, but the two other are fun, and certainly help with letter recognition.

Kids Rating. I bought this one for my 4 y.o. nephew. It's not a bad game for learning the alphabet but is unlikely to have much staying power once kids know the alphabet well and have memorized the associated pictures. Still it's a good buy for the price.

Card layout can be confusing for kids. Once you teach them an order to figure out their plays, it works better.

Surprising how difficult it can be to find the matches. High amount of luck. Too long (at least with 5 players)

Nice card game, especially when the kids are learning the alphabet. When you are familiar with the cards (and the alphabet of course ) this is a no-brainer but it's still worth every penny for the right group of kids.
Got a lot of positive feedback from parents and kids as well.
