We love having fun! Who doesn't, right? Well, we are always looking for new games and activities that are both fun and educational, that we can add to our list of favorites, so we were very excited to have the chance to try out this new brand new game from USAopoly, Treasure Trax - The All In One Scavenger Hunt Game!
When I first viewed this game online, it looked liked something my daughter would really enjoy. It was something new and different than we had tried before and that's always a good thing. We patiently waited for the arrival of our new game in the mail.
And then it came! And let me tell you something. The quality of this game totally took me by surprise! Both quality and fun factor far surpassed my expectations which is why I asked the company if they would consider giving away one of these games to one of you. It's just so, so good!
This is basically how the games works. It comes with a series of cards that are big, bright, colorful, and high quality. Each card has a picture on it... it might be a location, a color, a letter, or an animal. There are a few different ways you can play but the basic premise is that you will leave a card somewhere and that card has a clue such as a picture of the bathtub. So, then you'll go the bathtub and find another card there that might have a picture of the refrigerator. So then you'll go to the refrigerator... and on and on and on. Get it? It's a treasure hunt! You can use the animals as little things to find along the way if you like. You can add clues like letters and colors. So for instance, maybe you're at the bathtub and you find clues for the bed, brown, and something that starts with T. Maybe you'll go look on the bed for the brown teddy bear and find your next clue!
I have a daughter that will be four next month and I cannot even express to you how much she loves this game! She prefers to only use the location cards right now. She says the animal cards are "too distracting" for her. HA! This is serious business! She loves letting me hide the cards and then she walks around the house with the little purple (her favorite color) card-sized bag that comes with the game, following the clues, and collecting the cards. We decide together what the treasure will be at the end that will signal that the last clue has been found... could be an animal card, a special stuffed animal, or even the display sign that is included with the game! Now that we've played the game enough times, she has mastered hiding the clues on her own too... which is actually really impressive to me because it takes a lot of brain power for a little kid to place all of these cards, in order, around the house, rather than placing them randomly. I can see her brain stretching and her little wheels turning the whole time, which I love!
This game keeps my daughter excited and occupied for a long time. In fact, I don't think she's ever stopped playing on her own! It's usually only because it's meal time or bed time!. And, (because this is kind of important to parents out there) I actually don't mind playing this game either And, you can only say good things about a game that you are cleaning up as you go, leaving nothing to deal with when you're done, right?!
This game is geared toward 3-5 year olds but I bet even one a little bit older would enjoy it too. It retails for $19.95.
