My comments:
This is such a good quality made game from Ravensburger, I really love it for my wee ones. I have played it with each of my children when they were learning their colors and shapes and the game is still in excellent condition after 7 years of use! There are ten different variations of the game so you can really keep the toddlers coming back to this one.

Ravensburger says this game is for 3 -10 year olds, I have to disagree with that range. A ten year old would not be interested. This is strictly for the preschool/kindergarten crowd so I have adjusted the age range in the description. There are some small tokens that present a choking hazard but you can easily play this with a two year old if you play the non-competitive games which do not use the tokens. link to this game:
