At first my boys (2-4) had a hard time when we played at the table. After watching them play I figured to put the actual board on a table and the pieces either on another table some feet away or on the floor some feet away. My boys could spin their turn and run to the cards to search, then run back. They seem to enjoy that more.

The game is too complicated for a 2-3 year old and not exciting enough for a 4-5 year old. Most kids who understand the difference between upper and lower case letters will not find this game stimulating enough to hang in until the end. I like the concept of mixing numbers-knowing how many spaces to move-with letters but it is somehow just clumsy and doesn't work. I bought it because it was Eric Carle. The box sold me the game but it will be going to the donation box on the next trip.

                The Spin & Seek game is a good game for older 2 & 3 year olds who are learning to differentiate between capital and lower case letters, count and take turns. The game requires a decent amount of table space but the rules are simple and the graphics (Eric Carle illustrations) are bold and engaging.
