It seems that most games my daughter plays are on my iPhone so I was looking forward to playing an old fashion board game with her. She loves “choo choos” as we call them and wanted to play this game as soon as we walked in the door. The game is really easy to understand and we already have our favorite characters. She is always Koko and I am Brewster.
The object of the game is to spin the wheel and open the different boxcars to see if you can find the right cargo for your train. It teaches her to look for colors, shapes and counting as part of the game. It also tests her memory as she tries to remember what is in each boxcar. The game doesn’t take that long to play so it is a great game to play as we are getting ready for dinner.
You can purchase the Traintastic Cargo Game exclusively at Toys “R” Us stores and online at toysrus.com for $16.99.
Disclosure: I was provided a complimentary Traintastic Cargo Game in order to facilitate this review, but all opinions are my own (and my daughter’s!)
