Recently, I was asked to review a toy with my boys from Educational Toys Planet. I’m not quite sure who was more excited me or them. We are huge game players here at my home. I believe that learning can be fun and I’m always looking for new games to add to our collection. So, I was excited when we received Find Five Fast! Matching Game.
What is Find Five Fast?
Find 5 Fast! Matching Game comes with magical discs of common things. Can your eyes spy the matching ones? Discs show lots of common objects. Shuffle the 5 discs, place them on the table and everyone at once tries to find the common object that’s on all 5 discs. Whoever finds it first gets to mark that object with his/her colored coin and flip over ANY ONE of the discs. There will always be only one common object that appears on all 5 discs, no matter which disc is turned over during the game. It’s Magic! For a greater challenge, there’s a version using 6 magical discs, with more objects on each one. Contents: 5 magical double-sided discs, 6 magical double-sided discs for advanced play, 16 scoring chips, built-in scoring board, rules in English & French (2-4 players)
For ages 5 and up
This game focuses on building several skills including: Thinking skills, matching skills, concentration, quick thinking and verbal skills. All this while the kids are having fun, and they don’t even suspect they are learning these valuable skills.
So, my little guy doesn’t look too happy because his brother just won again! My oldest son has super visual skills and this was crazy playing with him. My little guy is 5 so it takes him a bit longer to find the matches. My oldest sons favorite part was being the scorekeeper and my little ones is “just playing”. I learned quite a few things watching them play. This game absolutely is a vocabulary builder. I had no idea that my son couldn’t identify the round hairbrush or clothing hanger on the disks. It helped my little guy concentrate, especially when he realized he was losing. When playing with his brother he definitely had be quick with his thinking. I would also suggest using this game to sharpen anyones quick thinking skills. If you want it to be more challenging there are also more disks with more images on them. This will keep your mind sharp!
He looked much happier when I told him we could play again and he could be the scorekeeper! I would recommend this game as fun and highly educational. This would make a great gift idea. Make sure you take a look at all the fun learning games over at Educational Toys Planet.
