Learning To Share Fun Park Game
Review: This game for kids ages 4 and older uses a carnival to teach the concept of sharing with others. Sharing is often a big concern for parents, especially ones with multiple kids or kids who attend daycare so this game might be just what they are looking for. It consists of carnival rides and activities….a log ride, a Ferris wheel, a roller coaster, and circus tent.
The pieces are all really well made and cute so that the game looks like a lot of fun right from the start, just like a carnival. You roll a die to find out which ride or carnival game you need to do and then if you “win” you get a token. If you win the log ride for example, by balancing a ball on a forked twig without letting it fall, you win.
Each ride has a unique token and each player has to get all their tokens before the park closes. Cooperation and sharing comes into play because you have to do the same rides more than once and you may get extra tokens that other players don’t have. Since everyone loses if you can’t get out before closing time it gives players incentive to share tokens with other and get sharing stars in return.
My own kids loved playing this game. Every time we played I heard “Can we play again???!”
The game is for kids 4 years and older and I think the hand-eye skills in at least one of the rides does require some skill that kids younger than 4 might not have yet. There are definitely small pieces that young children could choke on too.
Noodleboro also has a Learning to Listen Pizza Palace Game and a Learning About Manners Picnic Basket Game.
