Things We Did Not Like About It
There is nothing much to comment on here. The only observation we make is that it can become a bit repetitive with extended playing periods.
Probably not something to do on consecutive days because you will have seen all the cards and puzzles.
A way to overcome this would be to add more different colored balls or even create your own puzzles!
Just note there is a Choking Hazard warning for children under 3 years of age.
