The Sneaky, Snacky Squirrel Game Review

I just had to review this, the name alone made it stand out.  Also it does not hurt its already won a few awards, so it has earnt its place in our games cupboard (space is a premium in there, so we only want decent games taking up what little is left!!!).

The game itself was really entertaining to play, great to help youngest with his fine motor skills, using the cute squirrel to pick up the coloured acorns.  It required some skill and its nice to see youngest get better at it the more we have played.  Even I dropped a nut a few times trying to use the squirrel hands to pinch on to it, but not quite getting it right!

Like any game it is useful for learning to take turns but it is quite an exciting game with the fun pieces helping keep the boys attention!  Although youngest was fairly keen on wearing one of the log-shaped game pieces as a hat…

The arrival of The Sneaky, Snacky Squirrel Game was our first introduction to the Learning Resources site.  But am sure it will not be our last, it looks well stocked with a huge range of educational materials.  Investing in my children now might pay off in the future, when they have that high profile position and keep me in tea and cake for the rest of my life!!!  If I say it enough maybe they will get the hint lol.

You can win a copy of the game on the Learning Resources facebook page.  It closes on the 30th of April, well worth an entry, with five to giveaway.
