Quick Take: Your 2 year old can play a game! This game is ideal for the high achieving first-time parent who is eager to teach children colors, animal names, and their corresponding foods. I'm tired and on my 4th kid and I sort of hope she learns from all the books we read to her so I was happily surprised when my not quite 2 year old was all about this game! I was a little annoyed to actually have to read rules for a 2 year old game (I'm tired) but I made a video so you don't have to and it's actually quite easy to play, they just have different ways to play the game depending on how your child wants to play. It's quite ingenious, it's a very fun way for your child to learn, the pieces are very sturdy, and there's enough going on here that I don't feel like I was robbed buying an expensive toddler game that my child will only enjoy for a few months. Super cute game, checks all the boxes of being easy to play and educational and helping with fine motor skills while being fun for you and your child. There's a cooperative way to play the game and even a mildly competitive version.
How to Play: One person (or team) picks a tile that has a picture of something that is on the board. The other person gets to ask a series of yes or no questions until they’re able to determine what is on the tile. The official rules are 15 turns chances to ask questions and whoever collects three tiles first is the winner.
Variations: I love that there are three different ways to play in the official rules, and the first is free play. They even give positive examples of how to encourage your child as they're learning how to work the puzzle aspect of the game and the animal names and colors of the cards. So helpful. There aren't a ton of items included in the game but there's a lot you can do with them.
