Thanks to SmartGames for sending along a complimentary copy. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Do you have a gift closet in your home? We don’t have an entire closet full of gifts, but we do have dedicated space in one of our closets to gives we like that we want to share with others. It’s quite handy when birthday party invitations come our way, as well as when it’s time to make final gift decisions for all the cousins (10, so far!).
Sometimes I’ll stock up on something that my own kids particularly enjoyed playing with, and today I want to highlight our newest find. I’ll be buying multiple copies of Three Little Piggies in the near future because this logic game rocks in SO many ways. I really enjoy playing it as an adult, and it is also quite fun for both of my girls (almost 4 and 6 1/2). It’s hard to find something that can entertain young kids as well as adults, but Three Little Piggies does just that!
So the game comes with a blue board, some figurines, some houses with attached “grass” and a book with 44 different puzzles to solve. Half of the puzzles involve figuring out how to place the houses in such a way that the piggies are all outside of them. These are the day time puzzles. The night time puzzles involve the wolf and you have to figure out how to place the houses so that each pig is safe inside and the wolf is outside. Pigs and wolves cannot be moved. It’s quite a lot of fun, really!
And perhaps best of all, this game is intended for just one player. This is fantastic for only children, but it’s also nice for anyone who just wants to play alone for a spell. By playing Three Little Piggies, your child gets to practice working on logical reasoning, spatial perception, strategic planning and mental agility. Not bad for just one game, right?
I have also just found, through observation, that this game really can hold a child’s attention. This is especially true for my 6 1/2 year old, who will go through challenge after challenge after challenge, all in one sitting.
Overall, I give this game two very enthusiastic thumbs up! As I said, I plan to buy a few more copies to give as gifts because my whole family thinks it is a winner. You can purchase Three Little Piggies from SmartGames for $24.99.
