Animal Upon Animal Game Review

Award winning and best-selling game, HABA's Animal Upon Animal, is celebrating 10 years! Grab this commemorative edition tin of the game that has players race each other to be the first to place all of their wooden animals upon the animal pile. A roll of the die tells the players how many animals can be placed or whether they can add to the crocodile base. This game fosters hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. For Ages 4+. MSRP: $21.99. Available online at www.HABAusa.com

Our Thoughts

Animals Upon Animals is a great game for kids! My nine and six year old are like night and day with what keeps them occupied, but they both enjoy playing this game. It really requires some critical thinking and balance so it keeps them busy for a while because they don't want the pieces to fall over!

The box is compact and holds all the pieces perfectly. Each game piece is thick so it is hard to lose them and they don't break easily like cardboard pieces. The dice that comes with the game is made out of the same material as the animal pieces and it is also much bigger than a normal sized dice, which is great because it's hard to lose. I remember losing many game dice growing up and having to scrounge around in a different game box for one but you don't have to worry about that with Animal Upon Animal. 

I love the little animal pieces too because my son learns the animals and tries to imitate the sounds. So while this is a game that's multiplayer, my six year old can stay occupied with this, by herself, for over an hour easily. She loves toys that really get her attention and make her slow down and think hard how to stack them. It is great for kids with sensory issues in my opinion, a great gift for the Holidays!
