It works well for younger children, but anyone can play. It's a little too complicated for the 4 year old still but he likes flipping the character flaps down. Our youngest is 3 and our oldest is 8 and our girls love playing this game.
The cards are thin and can be bent easily if you try, but they won't be damaged in regular use. It's a fun game. It’s a convenient size.
The cards fall out in the middle of play and the card holders get jammed. You have to weave the portrait between the bars to get it to stay securely. The cards have to be placed in the holder every 2 mins after falling out.
Just various shades of brown and a few token *. It's difficult to tell the difference between blue and green eyes, for example. Unless someone has really keen eyesight, it’s hard to distinguish between the details.
Most characters are dark skinned, there is hardly any asian representation, and no obvious hispanic characters. The name that goes with the character are pretty obvious what culture it belongs to.
An instant hit with 4 & 6 year old girls. Best game ever for a 5 year old. My 6 yo granddaughter loves this game. My 4yo’s favorite activity.
The family enjoys playing it together. It brings out loads of creativity. It's so easy to just pull out and play whenever. We have a ton of fun as a family playing this.
Non-readers can use colours and pictures for each category. The proud face they have when you have guessed what they are acting is just awesome. It doesn't matter that we have acted out the clues before, it is just as fun, as the first time!
Watching your kids do charades is hysterical. It's just silliness and giggles. Lots of laughs for all of us.
Other charades games for kids are much more engaging. What few female characters there are were drawn mostly with short skirts, prominent breasts, and colored with pink or purple accents.
