Laser Maze Jr Game from Think Fun

Laser Maze Jr Game from Think Fun

Disclosure: I received a free product in exchange for my honest review.

I really love working with Think Fun. They have so many engaging games for kids. 

Even as an adult I enjoy their games and puzzles. It is a great way to get kid's brains thinking instead of zoning out in front of a screen.

My daughter is not 6 yet, but when I was asked to review the Laser Maze Jr Game I had to say yes! 

 The toddler is too young to get the whole gist of this game, but she enjoyed watching the grown ups figuring it out, and eventually she "helped" us.

What is the Laser Maze Jr Game all about?

Here is the manufacturer description:

Laser Maze Jr.  (Ages 6 to adult, MSRP: $29.99)
Your Mission: Get the laser beam to the rockets so they can safely return to earth! You’ll need to use science and logic to reflect the laser beam to the rockets. Carefully place the satellite mirrors to guide your path, but watch out for space rocks that might get in your way. It’s one tricky job for any scientist, but with a little brain power you’ll be sure to ignite the rockets and your mind. One mission completed and 39 more to go! 

What was our experience with the game?

Laser Maze Jr Game uses a real laser, so we really had to watch the toddler closely but it was no big deal for her once we explained the concern we had.

Basically the way the game works is that you look at the cards and set up the board to make the laser reflect to the goal area. 

There are easy to super hard cards to try out, and we were able to do each level. Although, the harder ones took us longer and longer to succeed. No problem- the increasing levels of difficulty made it more fun!

The man of the house sat and played with this for about 45 minutes and he was seriously enjoying himself. The instructions were easy to follow and the pieces seemed substantial enough to hold up to the 6 and up crowd.

An easy configuration- the goal is to light up the small tower with the laser.

This splits the beam into 2.

Hard to capture the lasers on camera- but you can get the idea.

 The card.

We have this on our game shelf now, and we will certainly enjoy it more and more as she grows into it.

Thanks so much!
