Rated 5 out of 5 by from Challenging and fun Our 4yr old loves this game. We play together and she likes to do it by herself. The shapes are hard plastic so it won't break easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can hear my daughter's gears turning My daughter was just a little shy of 4 when I gave this puzzle to her. Because the puzzles start easy and gradually get more challenging, my daughter was able to get it very quickly. At first she didn't understand that she could flip a piece to make it fit and would get frustrated. I told her "Try flipping it", "try a different piece first," "try turning it" and let her figure it out. Some puzzles are more challenging but when she figures it out and the look on her face is priceless. I love that it comes in a compact carrying case, perfect for restaurants and traveling. It's nice to see her so focused on something, that's not a screen. One things is in some lighting, the pink and red in the book are hard to tell apart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great puzzle game for kids! I purchased Kanoodle Jr. for my 4-year-old and my 6-year-old who both enjoy puzzles. I wasn't sure how they would do with Kanoodle Jr., I thought maybe the concept might be too hard for them, but they took to it immediately! I love how it comes with a booklet that inserts right into the case, and challenges them to finish the puzzle. I'm also a fan of how the challenges start easy and gradually get harder. The way they have designed it, assures that kids will be able to understand what the challenge is asking them to complete.This is also the perfect size to throw in a bag or keep in the car for some fun on the go! I would definitely recommend this to any parent whose child enjoys puzzles. It keeps kids engaged and entertained!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big fun, little package I gave this to my four-year old and put in the first puzzle, and she was off! After about four of the easiest puzzles she was already asking for more difficult ones (while her eight-year old sister was BEGGING to use it!). They both used it until bed time and and woke up and couldn't wait to use it again. I love that there are no batteries, all of the puzzles are in a booklet (as opposed to single cards), and compact enough not to take up a lot of space.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great travel puzzle game for young children There are 75 different sheets of puzzle to complete using 6 colored pieces. Our 3 year old had fun completing all the puzzles especially the latter more challenging ones. The game comes in an easy to carry case. The instruction and puzzle sheet book fits nicely into the case. Game is great to take on travel or trips to the restaurant. Only comment is that it's a bit a pain to have to fold each page of the puzzle sheet. Would have made it easier it if it's a spiral book design where you can slide into the case. Also the suggested age for the game is 4 to 7 but we felt it's probably best for 3 to 5 year old as the puzzles are too easy for older kids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Educational Game in a Small Travel Size Package My 4 year old enjoys this game a lot!! It's great for visual perception and spatial awareness. The game can be as simple as just getting the pieces to fit, following simple designs, to more complex designs. I also like the fact that it is travel ready. Everything fits neatly into the container and it does not take much space at all. Great game in a small package!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love this game! We love this game! It was very portable, which was great for my family. It is easily adaptable to multiple children because of the range of difficulty of the game. I love that it is educational, while still being fun for the children. I love this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great game for preschool My class was so excited to get Kanoodle Jr. Our first impression of the game was the it was very colorful and inviting. We really liked how the pieces are large and easy to grasp. The game directions are well written and the levels are clearly marked on each game. We enjoyed the variety of puzzle themes (rockets, popsicles, dinosaurs, doughnuts ect.) this kept the game exciting and engaging. The only thing I will be changing to meet the needs of our preschool will be to laminate the puzzles to accommodate all of the little hands that will be using them daily. I love all of the skills my preschoolers will get to practice while using this game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now this is a game that will hold your child's attention! My daughter (5 1/2) loves this game! She needed a little help the first few times, but after explaining to her the different puzzle types, she was ready to play on her own. This game holds her attention for long spans of time which is great for long drives in the car! The book that accompanies the game has many puzzles that range from easy to challenging. My daughter and I love this game!
