Rated 5 out of 5 by from BUY NOW & NEVER LOOK BACK!!!! Robot Face Race has provided our children the opportunity to build fine/visual motor skills, social skills, language skills and pre-academic skills However, this does NOT have to be a game!!! We all know the fallouts that can happen when there are "winners & losers" so we just avoid it all together! It is a great social turn taking and friendship building game without a winner and loser. We don't even know where to start on this games amazingness...So, we will break it down! Academic/Cognition: -Sequencing (find the red head first), Working memory (blue head, red mouth, purple nose, etc.), Colors, Facial parts, Numbers/Math (this one has 3 eyes and the other has 1, etc.) Vision/Visual Perception: -Visually scanning, Visual motor, Visual Orientation, Visual Attention, Visual Discrimination, Visual Sequential-Memory, & Visual Form Constancy Language (receptive/expressive) & Social Skills: -Tell a friend what to find, Prepositions & Sequencing Fine Motor: Shaking the randomizer & Finger isolation Differentiation (simplifiers and challengers): -We put a piece of plastic over the board with binder spring clips (an old piece of lamination we got out of the trash in the staff lounge) and we let the kids circle the robots with dry erase, connect all the red ones, etc.) -We gave the kids the 5 colors in crayons and paper and they created the robots they made with the robot randomizer (this was a favorite) -For our 2 year olds, we cut out the pieces with construction paper (laminated them later because it was such a huge hit) and they created the robots by orienting the pieces on a robot head (we didn't make them follow the sequence but they could have). -Projected the game board on a smart board with a document camera and the kids could use the pens to circle when they find them on a vertical surface. -Made the "face base" and kids made the eyes, mouth and nose out of floam, play dough or wikki stix!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Game - maybe for grades K and up This is a great game. The pictures on the board are cute and silly, which is great for the little ones. The faces are very small though, so my 4 1/2 year old found it a little hard to quickly find the faces. As with some of their other games, it might be good to give different play options including one with a timer so that everyone is racing against the clock instead of against each other (especially if you're playing with kids of varying age/skill). Overall a great game that teaches colors, shapes, matching and PATIENCE!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the Whole Family! To make it easier for travel, consider designing velcro game pieces. It'd be a great game for the car if the pieces could stick to the board.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great game to challenge multiple levels of memory This is a great game - the packaging, art and quality of production is fantastic. Solid, smooth and sophisticated. As a game its challenging - there are 4 aspects to look for and match up and my son (4.5) got frustrated with the multiple levels of search. He had no trouble processing the instructions but I think if the robot count on the board would have been fewer (and the art bigger0 it would have been more age appropriate for 4+. My daughter (6.5) took to it and loved it - and although some of the rounds proved challenging for her- it was more age appropriate for her. That said, we enjoyed playing with it as a family and would definitely recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for older preschoolers This game is challenging for my three year old, but she is determined to keep trying. I think it would be perfect for 4 to 6 year olds. The game challenges players to find the robot face that matches what they come up with on the randomizer. Looking for each feature to match the randomizer really helps little ones with both memory and visual discrimination. The game is so colorful and engaging that I can see it holding the attention of little ones for a long time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very good game I played with my daughter and was able to keep her attention. It helps with concentration and memory. Played several times and liked it more when more people were involved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun educational matching game Robot Face Race is a fun educational matching game for 4+. We are a board game family but often find it difficult to find a game that keeps everyone engaged. The concept is simple enough for my 6 yr old son but challenging enough for even the adults. It took a few games for my son to learn a strategy (matching the head first, then the features) but he was very encouraged to keep playing and improving. This game will help with memory recall and ability to discern small details. The board is colorful and the randomizer is very unique and not your typical dice shaker. The board background is black and makes it a little difficult to scan but that may be part of the visual discrimination training.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Kids Kicked My Butt! Robot Face Race is such a fun matching game! My 5 and 9 year old nieces really enjoyed playing this game. It is beautifully designed and the randomizer is super unique because it is much different from your typical dice and spinner games. We had fun racing to find each robot...although my nieces were better at the game than me! I highly recommend this game for family board game night!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from inviting and engaging game The box is colorful and very inviting for children to want to open and begin to play the game. There are a few parts which make it very convenient: board, robot randomized, 25 tokens. The object of the game is to shake the robot randomizer and match it with the exact features on the board and place your token on the board. Whoever gets 5 tokens wins first. For example, I might shake a yellow head, red mouth, orange nose, and green eyes. I would then have to find the robot on the board with those exact features and place my token on that robot. I have a 2, 5, and 7 yr old. My 2 year old just liked shaking the robot randomizer, but I also just had her match the tokens to the colors on the board whenever I played it with her alone. Before playing, as a parent I would explain to your child how to look for the biggest feature (head), then the eyes, and then mouth or nose. Another thing that helped my girls is that I would verbally repeat saying I'm looking for something with a yellow head (pause), with red eyes (pause) with blue nose (pause) and purple mouth. This games teaches memory, order, visual discrimination, and careful observation/monitoring. I was looking at the game more from a fun perspective but as a former reading specialist I can verify the importance of having visual discrimination as a pre-reading skill. That's why kids may mix up the letters f or t because they just see a stick Instead of the curve feature of the letter. Also this game helps with visual scanning from left to right a skill children will need to help them learn in reading. I noticed my 5 yr old scanned randomly so I taught her how to look left to right and then a return sweep for the robot. I recommend those who may have children with different abilities to modify the game. The seven year old played the game according to the rules but our 5 yr old needed us to modify with her looking for two features (head and eyes), then three features (head, eyes, nose) and eventually worked up to four features as she improved on her skills. I would recommend this game to others. It is fun and educational too. My girls didn't get tired of playing this game. It was neat to see them all looking quietly for the matching robot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Find Your Strategy - Find the Robot Head I am an elementary school teacher. I showed my students how to play and they became very excited. I let them take turns playing in teams and had them write reviews. The majority of the reviews were positive. Students had fun scanning the game board and finding the correct robot head. Some said the game was too easy while others became frustrated and said it was a game of luck rather than skill. Once every student had an opportunity to play, we had a discussion about what skills were needed in order to play. Strong players explained their strategies, which helped to illuminate others as to how there actually is skill involved when playing. The most revealing test as to whether or not a game is fun is how often the students ask to play it again. This is a game that students ask to play regularly!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun for the family! My family of 4 had lots of fun with this game. Though, it's pretty challenging for my 4 year old to find the right robot... I do believe with a bit more practice my 4 year old will get the hang of it and love it. My husband and I spent a lot of time playing with my 8 year old and we all enjoyed it. Since there aren't too many pieces we we able to take it with us while traveling too! This would be a great gift for a 5 or 6 year old.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, fun, challenging. Should be 6+ High quality board and "randomizer". game pieces are just cardboard. Fun and quick setup, challenging for all ages. However, only recommend at least age 6+, not 4+ as box states

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much fun! This game is so much fun! My 6 year old son and I had a blast locating the different robots. You shake the dome and there are four colors that fall in slots to show the different features of the robot. There is one additonal color that gets hidden and doesn't come into play for that round. Then the hunt is on to find the robot that matches. The game itself can go pretty quick (about 15 min for us), so it is great for those with shorter attention spans. Of course you could keep playing over and over like we did as there are so many different combinations! It would be easy for the youngest of players to understand how to play, Though if your child is under 4, you might need to motify play and focus on one or two features instead of all four. This game would be great for traveling as well as there are not too many pieces to keep track of. It has been a great addition to our family game nights!
