Great States is really a fun way to learn about the United States. I purchased this game for my granddaughter in January and she has already been asked a question, in her class at school that she knew the answer to because she had learned from playing this game. We enjoy working against the timer to find things on the map board.
I got this jewelry box for my granddaughter's Christmas. We worked on it for a part of 2 days. She loves sparkle and glitter and was so proud when she finished. She did 90% of the work . A wonderful gift for someone who is creative. Helps build confidence in them.
My granddaughter and I are having many fun hours with the card games. The cards are a nice size for her to handle and the quality seems very durable. The instructions are very simple and helpful. It is a nice break from all the electronic gadgets she has!
The plastic tray need to be more sturdy. I had difficulty getting the paper pieces to fit correctly in the grooves. My granddaughter could not do it and I took over an hour working with the pieces. The end result was exciting for her as she watched the trees bloom and the mountain become covered with snow. Be prepared to help the child you buy for.
