Houdini Game from Think Fun
Disclosure: I received a free sample of this product in exchange for my honest review.
I really love the products from Think Fun.
I have reviewed several already, and I am never disappointed. Board games are sometimes forgotten in this digital world, and it is a shame, because these folks make some awesome ones. I saw several on their site besides the ones we have tried, that we would enjoy.. we will need to expand our game cabinet!
So what is Houdini all about?
Houdini (Ages 8 to adult, MSRP: $19.99)Who isn’t intrigued by the sensational escape acts of Harry Houdini? In these 40 disentanglement puzzles featuring the great illusionist in miniature, you’ll use ropes, rings and a lock to secure him and work your magic to set him free – without undoing the clasps! Sound easy? Well, let’s just say we won’t ask you to tie yourself up quite yet! Watch the video: http://www.thinkfun.com/houdini#tabset-tab-4
This particular game is too old for my toddler, but I have to say, even though I was working through the puzzles myself, she was attentive to the whole process. She watched, gently handled the components and offered "helpful" toddler advice.
SO much fun even for adults.. I am sure the kids 8 and up are going to love it even more than we did, if that is possible...
Thanks so much for letting us try this out.. in another few years of watching us struggle, I am sure that toddler will be solving these herself!
