Hi Friends! I’ve got a quick game review for you!
Disclosure: As a member of the 2018-2019 Blog Team, I received the Thinkfun Color Fold logic game from Timberdoodle in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review of this product.
The basic premise of this logic game is similar to QBitz. You select a card with a puzzle and attempt to fold the microfiber fabric until only the pictured shapes are showing. The game has 40 beginner to expert leveled puzzles.
This game was nice, but we struggled with folding the fabric.
It’s an interesting concept, but it frustrated my daughter because it’s a piece of fabric to fold. She gets frustrated folding laundry, so while this is a unique concept, it’s not for the easily frustrated.
I liked it much more than my daughter. I’d definitely place the skill level in the upper middle school to high school category. My daughter was 10 at the time of this review. The box says it’s appropriate for 8 and up. I think this is a little young.
Thinkfun is also the maker of Cat Crimes. We LOVE this game. It’s a single player, Clue-like game to see who the “offensive” cat is.
You can find all of the Timberdoodle Thinking Skills resources at this link.
My overall recommendation is to look at all their resources before you purchase this one. It’s nice, but I think there are better products for working on visual perception and sequential reasoning.
