      Comments about Educational Insights Robot Face Race™:

      This is a great game. The pictures on the board are cute and silly, which is great for the little ones. The faces are very small though, so my 4 1/2 year old found it a little hard to quickly find the faces.
      As with some of their other games, it might be good to give different play options including one with a timer so that everyone is racing against the clock instead of against each other (especially if you're playing with kids of varying age/skill).
      Overall a great game that teaches colors, shapes, matching and PATIENCE!!!!

        To make it easier for travel, consider designing velcro game pieces. It'd be a great game for the car if the pieces could stick to the board.

            This is a great game - the packaging, art and quality of production is fantastic. Solid, smooth and sophisticated. As a game its challenging - there are 4 aspects to look for and match up and my son (4.5) got frustrated with the multiple levels of search. He had no trouble processing the instructions but I think if the robot count on the board would have been fewer (and the art bigger0 it would have been more age appropriate for 4+. My daughter (6.5) took to it and loved it - and although some of the rounds proved challenging for her- it was more age appropriate for her. That said, we enjoyed playing with it as a family and would definitely recommend it.

              This game is challenging for my three year old, but she is determined to keep trying. I think it would be perfect for 4 to 6 year olds. The game challenges players to find the robot face that matches what they come up with on the randomizer. Looking for each feature to match the randomizer really helps little ones with both memory and visual discrimination. The game is so colorful and engaging that I can see it holding the attention of little ones for a long time.

                I played with my daughter and was able to keep her attention. It helps with concentration and memory. Played several times and liked it more when more people were involved.

                    Robot Face Race is a fun educational matching game for 4+. We are a board game family but often find it difficult to find a game that keeps everyone engaged. The concept is simple enough for my 6 yr old son but challenging enough for even the adults. It took a few games for my son to learn a strategy (matching the head first, then the features) but he was very encouraged to keep playing and improving. This game will help with memory recall and ability to discern small details. The board is colorful and the randomizer is very unique and not your typical dice shaker. The board background is black and makes it a little difficult to scan but that may be part of the visual discrimination training.

                        Robot Face Race is such a fun matching game! My 5 and 9 year old nieces really enjoyed playing this game. It is beautifully designed and the randomizer is super unique because it is much different from your typical dice and spinner games. We had fun racing to find each robot...although my nieces were better at the game than me! I highly recommend this game for family board game night!

                            The box is colorful and very inviting for children to want to open and begin to play the game. There are a few parts which make it very convenient: board, robot randomized, 25 tokens.

                            The object of the game is to shake the robot randomizer and match it with the exact features on the board and place your token on the board. Whoever gets 5 tokens wins first. For example, I might shake a yellow head, red mouth, orange nose, and green eyes. I would then have to find the robot on the board with those exact features and place my token on that robot.

                            I have a 2, 5, and 7 yr old. My 2 year old just liked shaking the robot randomizer, but I also just had her match the tokens to the colors on the board whenever I played it with her alone. Before playing, as a parent I would explain to your child how to look for the biggest feature (head), then the eyes, and then mouth or nose. Another thing that helped my girls is that I would verbally repeat saying I'm looking for something with a yellow head (pause), with red eyes (pause) with blue nose (pause) and purple mouth. This games teaches memory, order, visual discrimination, and careful observation/monitoring. I was looking at the game more from a fun perspective but as a former reading specialist I can verify the importance of having visual discrimination as a pre-reading skill. That's why kids may mix up the letters f or t because they just see a stick Instead of the curve feature of the letter. Also this game helps with visual scanning from left to right a skill children will need to help them learn in reading. I noticed my 5 yr old scanned randomly so I taught her how to look left to right and then a return sweep for the robot.

                            I recommend those who may have children with different abilities to modify the game. The seven year old played the game according to the rules but our 5 yr old needed us to modify with her looking for two features (head and eyes), then three features (head, eyes, nose) and eventually worked up to four features as she improved on her skills.

                            I would recommend this game to others. It is fun and educational too. My girls didn't get tired of playing this game. It was neat to see them all looking quietly for the matching robot.
