So this Christmas, Santa got Devansh some really interesting gifts like a binoculars, hovering football, and this Smart Games’ Penguins Parade game. While I was happy with the choice of gifts (why wouldn’t I be considering I had suggested 2 out of the 3) 😉 , I was particularly excited about this magnetic travel game of Penguins Parade. Not just Devansh but hubby and I have also thoroughly enjoyed playing this one, and we have fought over it too…I am not exaggerating, I swear!! The urge to snatch the puzzle from another person solving it when you “think” you know the solution is irresistible, or so my kiddo or husband have me believe. 🙂 This game gets a thumbs up from me, husband, and kiddo. It makes for a great gift for kids in 5 to 10 years age group and their parents too, I must add. Read on for more details.
Smart Games Magnetic Travel – Penguins Parade: Review
What you get in Smart Games Magnetic Travel – Penguin Parade?
The game comes in a bounded booklet form. It has a hardboard with puzzle grid on one side and 4 levels of challenges on the other side. Solutions to the puzzles are provided at the end of the challenges. You also get 6 puzzle pieces which have magnet at the back that stick to the magnetic surface on the grid.
How to play the game?
First the player needs to place some puzzle pieces on the grid as indicated in the challenges’ pictures. This helps child develop visual and spatial perception. The player needs to then fit the remaining puzzle pieces such that 4 penguins are placed together in a vertical, horizontal, or diagonal line. This aids child’s logical thinking and strategic planning skills.
Puzzle has 48 challenges with 4 levels of complexity—Starter, Junior, Expert, and Master. The puzzle is meant for ages 5-10. 5-6 year olds who have got the hang of the puzzle will be able to solve some of the challenges even with higher complexity levels.
