Garbage! This Melissa and Doug shut the Box is junk. For almost $30, I'd at least expect mediocre quality, and much more from the Melissa and Doug brand but this had the wood pieces glued in crooked and almost 1/2 inch sticking above box top! Also, the "felt" lining was stained with glue, crooked, didn't cover the entire bottom, and had ripples/bumps in it. Plus, for the tiles you flip down are at least an inch crooked! The cover of the box looks like it was supposed to be glass or thick plexiglass to protect it, but instead it's paper thin plastic that crumples in when you pick the game up. Last, the dice are light as a feather and not square, so some numbers tend to come up more often than others...terrible when you're playing a game like this that requires rolling a series of random numbers to win the game:(

        Bought this online - couldn't wait to play, but when we did, flipping over the 1 was near impossible as well as the 2, and difficult on the 3. Looks like it was flawed manufacturing and we are going to return it soon.

            Comments about Melissa & Doug Classic Wooden Shut-the-Box Game:

            I could not be more pleased with my decision to purchase this game as a Christmas present for my son. He is in kindergarten and just starting to learn basic math. This game has been a fun way for him to learn counting and adding without making it seem like a chore! The rules are simple and the games are quick, which is great for the attention span of a 5 year old. I think this product has a lot of value because not only is it helping my son with his math skills, but it's also not something he will outgrow. This is a game teens and adults could play together as well. In addition, it's well made and very nice to look at, so I don't mind leaving it out on the coffee table.

            This is new to us but has been fun and easy in the first day that we have played. Would like the instructions to be slightly clearer and printed on the bottom of the box so as not to have to hang on to the paper.

                  This is a beautifully constructed dice game that challeges math skills and is short but you can continue to play for as long a time as you'd like. A friend introduced it to our 5 year old grandson on a camping trip and he had so much fun we started our search for it and found it here online. It's easy and most of all, fun for everyone playing. 2,3 or 4 players. Easy to travel with. This is a winner.
