I was not compensated for this review. I did receive a game to facilitate my review. However, all opinions are 100 Percent my own and are not influenced by the game I received.
The holidays are coming and with the holidays come the multitude of road trips with the family. Whether you are visiting someone fairly local or someone far away it can be hard to find ways to keep the kids entertained in the car. Instead of turning on a DVD player or handing them a video game, why not try out a travel game that will keep them busy for quite some time. Check out my Penguins Parade Travel Game Review.
What did I receive?
I recently received a travel version of Penguins Parade.
How was the Travel Version of Penguins Parade?
The travel version of Penguins Parade uses magnetic pieces to hold the pieces in the book. This will be great for a road trip because it will make it harder to lose the pieces.
There are different difficulty levels for the game. The above board is a simpler board. Both of my children were able to fly through it.
However the board pictured here really had R struggling for a bit.
The pages tell you how to set up your board. These are fairly simple to copy because each piece has it’s own design.
The goal of the game is to get 4 penguins in a row. The row can be horizontal, vertical, or diagonal based on the puzzle put before you.
What did the kids think?
After the kids stopped debating over who should have the first turn on the game they had a lot of fun. C is 6 and needed a little help laying out the game board. However, once it was put together he was ready to play and had a great time. He went through many of the game boards and even started inventing his own challenges. He really enjoyed this game and pulls it out around the house to play as well.
R was frustrated with it at first. She couldn’t quite understand how to overcome the challenge in front of her. She settled her mind on one way to solve it and couldn’t see it any other way. Once I showed her one move she could make it helped her to see the different options on the game board. With that knowledge she was able to fly through many of the other challenges.
I really like this game for them because it made them think critically. They had to look at the bigger picture instead of just grabbing the first piece put in front of them. If you are looking for a fun way to challenge your children I highly recommend this for your next road trip.
