        What's not to love about this game? Each player gets a raccoon card with a three dimensional and adorable face. You get to roll the dice to determine what color and what item of clothing your raccoon gets to wear. If you get tops and bottoms, you take 2 cards. If you get the underpants (this made my three year old crack up) you have to give up all of your raccoon's outfits and start again. The first person to get 5 outfit cards wins. My daughter and I had so much fun playing this. The game allows for some color practice, counting, hands-on activity, and a lot of discussion. One of her favorite things to do was to guess the job that each raccoon had according to his/her outfit. There are lifeguards, astronauts, artists, and so much more. I love this game, and appreciate how compact and sturdy it is as well. I will definitely be buying this as a Christmas gift this year!

          Our 3-year old son loves this game! It helps him with directions and rules, and he identifies what the dice are telling him to do with each roll. He loves picking out the different options available with each color, and will sometimes act out the raccoon character accordingly. We remind him to count his cards to see which player is closest to winning. He also loves when the die rolls to the underwear, and finds it hilarious. He anticipates it and asks if it's going to be the underwear again. It's a fun and quick family game to play, and allows us to laugh and bond together while finishing the game at the same time. He's always asking us to play this game with him - a great one for young toddlers!

            This is a great basic game for a 3-4 year old Preschooler. It might be too basic for any age beyond that. There are 2 versions of playing the game: one where you roll a color and article of clothing die and have to find a card with that. The other version is a memory type of game where you keep the clothing cards face down, roll just the color dice and have to match just the color to one of the clothing cards, trying to remember where the card you need is. It is a cute, simple game where the graphics do keep my child interested. This game helps with color recognition, naming of articles of clothing, learning to take turns and recalling the location of the cards you need. My 3.5 year old had fun playing this game! I would definitely recommend this game for a Preschooler!

              Comments about Educational Insights Raccoon Rumpus™:

              I am a mother of an older 2 yr old, 5 yr old and 7 yr。old girls. The construction of the games is so cute. The box is compact and I love how the instructions are on the box and very simple to read. My girls were so excited to play the game when we got it that I had my 7 yr old read the instructions and start to play the game while I finished washing the dishes. Yes, it is that simple that she could read it and explain it to her 5 and 2 yr old sister.

              So each player up to four receives an adorable raccoon card. We placed the 20 costume cards on the table. Then the youngest player goes first. I loved how the dice were oversized which made my 2 yr old able to handle them with ease. There are two dice. The color dice has: blue, red, purple, yellow, green, and rainbow. The clothing dice has two sides with pants,2 sides with shirts, underwear, and a top and bottom side. So when you roll the dice you get a color like yellow and a piece of clothing like shirt. So you find the card that has a raccoon with a yellow shirt. The only different dice rolls are: underwear in which you lose all your cards, or rainbow which means you can pick any color, or a shirt and pant which means you get to pick two cards with whatever color dice you roll. Whoever gets 5 cards the first wins.

              I love how my three girls could play this game together. I saw it more educational for my two year old as I saw her just matching the color dice but not paying attention to the shirt or pants. I quickly taught her how to look carefully for a shirt top or pant bottom. This was a cute simple game the girls enjoyed playing. They all laughed when someone rolled underwear and lost their cards. I was afraid one of my girls might have a meltdown in losing all the cards but the underwear makes it more fun.

              For entertainment value I would give it a 5 star. The educational value is really geared for 3 yr olds who may not know their colors, articles of clothing, and counting to five. There is not much new information for older kids to learn. I would say the memory part of the game would be more for the older girls. It's a little easier than memory because you just need to find two cards with the color you rolled on the dice.

              I was given this game in exchange for a review. These are my own opinions.

                I have four kids, ages 2 through 8. All of them loved this game. The two year old liked the colorful pictures and 3D raccoons. My four year old took pride in knowing he could play this with his older siblings, because he knew his colors. My 6 and 8 year olds were not bored with this game at all. I appreciated that it can be played by all my children. The colorful pictures and goofy-ness of the raccoons made it super fun. We also loved that there were two games in one box! Another awesome plus--moms and kids can easily come up with their own variations of how to play.

                  This is a perfect game for my 2 year old! Finally a game she can play with the whole family! She is learning colors and this is a fun game to reinforce what she already knows. Her 4 year old brother is very into it as well. The idea of dressing up the raccoon is fun and it's a great game for pre-schoolers and up. The playing cards are adorable and very well made. A great game for families with young children!

                      This is a great product if you're introducing your child to their first game with rules and players. My daughter just turned 3 and she loved it! It's great for learning colors and counting. The rules are easy to follow and the game pieces are well made and very cute! I like that it can also be turned into a matching game, which gives it variety.
