The game is about a dog named Shelby and she has buried bones on the beach and needs your help in collecting them. Whoever collects the most bones wins. To play, you spin the first spinner to see if you get to pick up bones, lose your turn because you were sidetracked by chewing on a flip flop, lose bones because of the sneaky seagull, or get to steal someone else's bones! Once you know which action you will be doing, you then spin the spinner to see how many bones you get to get (or lose). You then use the Shelby squeezer to pick the bones up and put in your bowl. The game is so cute to play and it's a great educational game too! Your child can practice counting and early number skills. Also, squeezing the Shelby squeezer helps build their fine motor skills. We absolutely loved it and my son requests to play it daily and neither of us are bored of it yet, it's really cute and a lot of fun! It's a great family board game.**Disclosure: I received the game free of charge in order to do an honest review. My thoughts are 100% my own.**Was this a gift?:No(1 of 1 customers found this review helpful)Was this review helpful? Yes / No - You may also flag this review6/10/2013(1 of 1 customers found this review helpful) 5.0Shelby makes learning fun!

It's a similar game set up as the Sneaky Snacky Squirrel which is my all-time fav preschool game.

It's always fun to play "easy" games with her to practice taking turns, following rules, etc. What I loved about this is that the awesome artwork, pug squeezer, and bones were enough to engage my almost 8 year old son, and it's been great to see them play together! I love that the game is easy enough for my daughter, yet "fun" enough for my son! They've learned more than the simple counting skills--- they're learning to compromise, follow rules, and have fun-- all with a little healthy competition and the CUTE pug-themed squeezers! We LOVE this game! We now have a go-to birthday gift to buy!Was this a gift?:YesBottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friendWas this review helpful? Yes / No - You may also flag this review4/9/2013 5.0Quick and easy fun! By Lyndsayfrom Chicago, ILAbout Me NannyProsDurableEducationalEngagingInteractiveLots of FunConsBest UsesEntertainmentIndoorYoung ChildrenComments about Shelby's Snack Shack Game™:This game is a big hit with my 5 year old girls. The game can be played in about 15 minutes which is perfect for their attention span. It has simple directions so they knew how to play after just one game. It's great to have a game they can play together with or without me. We expanded on the math aspect and they did addition every time they added bones to their bowl (ex. I had 4 bones and added 3. Now how many do I have?). It's a good game for younger children to learn basic counting and number recognition. I highly recommend it!Was this a gift?:YesBottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friendWas this review helpful? Yes / No - You may also flag this review4/1/2013 4.0fun quick game By Jackiefrom chicago, ilProsDurableEducationalEngagingInteractiveLots of FunConsBest UsesYoung ChildrenComments about Shelby's Snack Shack Game™:My son and I had a fun time with this game. It kept his attention but then he wanted to work with higher numbers so instead of 5 we would say 10. The game lasted about 15 minutes which was perfect for my son who can only sit still for about that long. Might be good for younger kids who are learning to count as well.Was this a gift?:NoBottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friendWas this review helpful? Yes / No - You may also flag this reviewDisplaying reviews 1-10Back to topPrevious | Next »
