    Do you have any toys in your product line for kids who complete the booklet? My kid is six, and tested as gifted in visual-spatial intelligence when he was 3. He loves this toy and says that he feels challenged and is finishing the last few exercises as I type this (I promised him an ice cream sundae if he finished them all). Any recommendations?

    This product would have earned a five-star rating from me IF the company offered replacement parts. However, if you lose one piece, and you might as well throw the whole game in the trash. Every piece is required for play. My son loved this game. He is very disappointed that he can no longer use it.

    I emailed the company once over a year ago to purchase replacements, and I got no response. I tried emailing again today, but I won't hold my breath. Very unfortunate. If replacement parts were offered and customer service was acceptable, this would be a great product.

    Comments about Kanoodle®:

    I received this game as a donation to my library for game nights for teens. Having tried the game out, I found it's a one-player game so will work best for a small group of teens coming in and not looking to play a big game with everyone. I tried the game and I love it! It's so much fun and so challenging. Every time I play it's still a challenge as it's not easy to remember the combinations between gameplays! I tried playing it in the car but dropped a piece between the seats...not easy to retrieve. But if you're in a building and not jiggling around it is great!

      My 7 year old loved legos and putting stuff together this was something perfect for him. Its more for older kids that wont place stuff in their mouth.

        So, we got this for my son, and he loved it. It's a challenging little puzzle game! I ended up taking it to work, and now it lives on my desk where my coworkers and I can work on the little challenges when we need a brain break (or a pick-me-up as the case may be!)

          Excellent toy - even for younger ones! My little guys (4 and 6 year olds) will build designs or simply follow puzzles in the box, just for basic pattern matching. I keep this puzzle in my bag-o-tricks for when we are at restaurants and they are getting restless. Compact for easy portability. I have brought this to an event for my children to play and fellow adult friends took it over! :-) SUPER bonus - after well over a year of use, we managed to lose the smallest piece. I called E.I. and the replacement is getting shipped tomorrow at NO CHARGE to me. Wonderful customer service!!!!

            Very challenging game for all ages! The progressive levels of difficulty make it as easy or hard as you like based on age/ability. The size makes it great for travel too as you can put it almost anywhere. Love this game! Highly recommend.

                    I bought this as a gift and ended up keeping it for our family. My 5 year old daughter continues to be interested. The bright colours are hard to resist! She's doing level 3 puzzles with some success. Now I'm planning to get one for my 85 year old father in law who loves sudoku and crosswords.

                    My only issue is with the puzzle book. When I'm setting up a puzzle, it's hard on my eyes to switch between the puzzle board and booklet. I'm considering enlarging and copying the pages so the puzzles are index card size. I actually came on this site to see if such a companion product was available for sale- laminated perhaps? This would be great for older eyes!

                      My kids and I LOVE this game!!! The puzzles are fantastic and my almost 7 year old daughters have been solving them. I like how the levels are scafolded and help solve the missing pieces. My only warning is that when these kids open it, sometimes the case is tilted and the beads just roll out. We've just lost one them. Very sad. Hope it can be replaced.

                          Yes, all the 2d and 3d puzzles listed in the instruction booklet are solvable. I've even posted solutions to the most challenging ones on my web site. Sorry, but due to the requirements of this web site, (not to include personal information, etc.) I am not allowed to post a link to it. But it's not impossible to find. Your favorite search engine can be your friend.
