Quick Take: Draw cards, do cute activities, and try to be the first to make it to the end of the Silly Street to win the game. It's a fantastic aid for preschool developmental skills - spelling their name, making up stories, listing colors, and practicing some gross motor skills like hopping on one foot. Our four year old is crazy about this game and we have a blast playing it with him. But his older brother and sister are officially "too cool" for a lot of stuff in this game and they're only six and seven years old. Very fun and cute game, it's just for a very specific audience.
How to Play: Win by being the first to get to the end of the Silly Street. You assemble the cute puzzle board and then place your tokens on the first spot on the path. Youngest player goes first and you take turns drawing cards and completing the activities on the card and moving the amount of spaces specified by the card. The board has some special spots like shortcuts and places where you miss a turn. The first to get to the end of the street wins the game.
Variations: Some of the cards could win the game in one turn. For instance: name words that rhyme with bee. Or list animals that come from an egg. We cap the number of spaces you can move in one turn at six and that keeps things a little more even keel.
