This is such a fun and cute game. My 9 year old son loves playing this game and says “It’s a game of gardening and panic!” You go around to little shops and collect items for your garden (herbs, vegetables, flowers, fruit trees, and birds), then you go home and plant your garden. You try to avoid spaces where you might need to return items to the shops. The pieces and the board are nice and thick, the spinner spins well, although sometimes it’s hard to tell which number you landed on. The art is very cute. The directions are printed on the inside of the lid so you can’t lose them (I love that). It says something on the box about learning counting, however this is applicable to any board game with a numbered spinner and spaces. I highly recommend this game to anyone who likes cute kids games that are mildly competitive.
