It is like any other memory game except instead of cards, you have these great wooden tiles. You can set them face up so that your child can look at all the animals (this is called the Memo) and try to remember where all of them are. Then you flip them over and they try to remember the Memo. The youngest player should go first (you can play with 2-4 players) and if the player gets a match, they go again. If they don’t get a match, they simply flip them back over and the next player tries. The player with the most matches wins!
I think the pictures of all the animals are really beautiful. They have a modern type look to them and I like that. I think they look kind of “artsy” instead of the “cute and cuddly”. Don’t get me wrong, I like cute and cuddly too but I just think it’s great that kids can experience a different kind of art every now and then. Animal Memo is also great for learning and identifying animals too.
Even thought they are stored in the cloth bag, I haven’t noticed any kind of scratching on the tiles either after being jumbled around. They do have a slight glossy coating to them which I like – it helps keep them protected. The age recommendations are for ages 3 years and older. Our son loves it at 4 years old and our 9 year old daughter even likes playing with him. Due to some of her disabilities she has a slight problem with memory such as this kind so playing this game helps a little. Now if I asked her about something that happened 2 years ago, she would remember in a finger snap even though I most likely wouldn’t have.
I think it’s great to have a game that our kids can both play together despite the age gap. They also like to stand them on end and push over one end to see them fall over in a domino effect! Our kids really like it and as a mom, I would recommend it to anyone with kids!
