Think Fun Rush Hour Traffic Jam Logic Game Review


Think Fun Rush Hour Traffic Jam Logic Game Review

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




We have so much fun testing out the games from Think Fun
The toddler is too young for this game still, but mom and dad sure like playing anyway! 

We also have nieces and nephews that ARE within the age groups, so we are loving that play as well.





What is Rush Hour all about?

According to their website:

Now with 40 New Challenges
Voted one of Parents' Choice Best 25 Toys of 25 Years!
Set up the traffic challenge and battle the gridlock as you slide the blocking vehicles out of your way to find a path for your red car to exit! This game features four levels of difficulty, allowing players to progress at their own pace. With 40 all-new challenges, it’s even more bumper-to-bumper fun for all ages!

 single player
Features: 
Rush Hour Traffic Grid with card storage
40 ALL NEW Challenge Cards from Beginner to Expert with Solutions
15 Blocking Cars and Trucks

It comes in a regular enough box, and has the pieces you see here- a nice mesh bag for simple storage, and the "road" and all the vehicles.



The goal is to take the road and set it up according to the cards inside the road, and try to puzzle your way out of the little side exit. Your car is the red car.







The cards are stored in this handy little tray. I love this because it is less likely to get lost like this!





The puzzles can be easy to hard, and they are all a challenge to this grown up brain.





I had set up puzzle 13, and worked it out over some time.





Here I am winning.. lol.

I really like the simple design of this logic game. 

Rush Hour can be easy or challenging. It can be done in the living room or on a car trip or anywhere really. 

The mesh bag is a genius storage idea. Frankly, I hate to keep those bulky game boxes anymore. We can easily pick this up and go and it doesn't take up a lot of space in the car, or even the closet really. 

I love these kinds of games because watching kids sit in front of a movie or computer screen makes me feel like their brains are going to mush. Here is something they can touch, they can be challenged, and they can play without batteries. 

The toddler sat and watched Rush Hour in complete fascination, as she usually does. I know she is going to be playing this game soon enough. We will be playing, she will be watching, and she will be running the show! 



We are once again in love with one of the games from Think Fun! Thanks so much!
