    Sudoku puzzles have exploded in popularity in recent years, and this product allows you to enjoy the logical puzzles with colors instead of numbers. Instead of using numbers from 1-9, Colorku uses nine differently colored wooden marbles on a large wooden board. The high-quality wood board measures 13.5" x 13.5" and is divided into nine rows, nine columns, and nine 3 x 3 squares. It has 81 wood marbles in 9 vibrant colors. The board and marbles are covered with a plastic tray that holds the balls on the board when storing, and flips over to serve as a ball holder while playing. The board comes with 100 different puzzle cards that come in four different difficulty levels and tell players where to place the first few marbles. The solution to each puzzle is achieved when the player ends up having one and only one of every color ball in each of the nine rows, columns, and 3 x 3 squares. Solutions are included. There's even a color conversion card that shows you how to alter any Sudoku puzzle from any book or news-paper and solve it using your Colorku board. Think the 100 puzzle cards that come with the game won't be enough? Luckily, there are a few Expansion Packs, which offer additional puzzle cards at a variety of levels. Each pack offers 100 puzzles with solutions. The Beginner Puzzles are fairly simple, the All Level Puzzles offer puzzles for four different difficulty levels, and the Advanced Puzzles will drive you crazy. The durable wooden game and fun yet challenging puzzles will be enjoyed by new and old Sudoku fans alike. ~Rachel

    Rush Hour puzzles are wonderful for all ages, but once younger kids get through the beginning cards and a few harder, it can get too difficult for them. The solution to this puzzle? Rush Hour Jr! It has all the fun of the original, with minor changes. For example, their playing piece is an ice-cream truck they guide through the maze of fire trucks, police cars, and other vehicles. The game comes with 40 new junior challenge cards, and a bag to store the game in. A great travel toy. - Melissa

    An adorable 3-D sliding puzzle with a bit of a twist. The little squirrels in this puzzle are all holding their acorn stash in front of them, and the board has holes in it for your squirrels’ acorns to be buried.

    This is not your average board game. Yes, there are cute playing pieces, obstacles and rules, but everyone plays the game until the end AND learns programming fundamentals along the way! The game is played by 1-4 "Turtle Masters" who are trying to get their turtle to the matching jewel on the grid-like game board. In the most basic game play, the players lay out action cards for their turtle, and the parent (or older sibling) acts as "Turtle Mover" and acts out the turtle's movement on the game board. As players get comfortable with the game, you can add "unlockables" to the game board – obstacles like ice walls, stone walls and crates. Turtles must work around each of these obstacles in a different way. As players advance, there are options for upping the ante, like having players lay out all of their action cards in a complete "program," then moving the turtle across the board all at once and seeing if he ends at the jewel. Created by a computer programmer and dad, this is a unique way to show kids how programming works in a fun and visual way! For 2-5 players. – Jess

    They're the Logic Link Puzzles kids love but a more game-like form! This set includes 166 puzzles at various levels and 32 small plastic, colored game chips. Each puzzle is presented on a 5" x 5" puzzle card and uses a series of clues to instruct a player where to place chips to solve the puzzle, requiring deductive reasoning and determination. The cards are double-sided, with a puzzle on both sides, and while outlines show where to place the game chips, instructions tell where to put specific colors (i.e. the green chip is adjacent to the yellow chip, the red chip touches only yellow chips, the topmost chip touches the blue chip, etc.). Beginner puzzles form a single row of chips and usually have two clues; intermediate puzzles form a rectangle and require 4-6 clues; advanced puzzles form a square of three rows and usually have 7-8 clues; and expert puzzles form a circle of chips, with 5-8 clues. Cards are color-coded by difficulty and the game is stored in a cardboard box.

    Programming isn’t just for the computer in this game! The idea is to “program” your way through each puzzle, using a specific combination of movements. Included in the game is an avatar, a portal, various move tokens (actions your avatar can take such as jumping, sliding, or running), power crystals, and enemy tokens, along with a map book and guide book. The map book contains puzzles of increasing difficulty with color-coded paths, which indicate which movement you need to go down the path, numbered spaces for power crystals, your avatar, and the portal. The guide book is your “program”: you place movement tokens on the various slots available in that puzzle, and then “run the program” by moving your avatar based on what tokens you placed in the guide book. The goal is to program your avatar to collect all gems, fight enemies, and navigate your way to the portal. Once you have a successful program, you can move on to the next level! But be warned: though the early levels are simple, there’s only one solution to each puzzle. Later puzzles feature loops, one-way paths, and non-linear programming logic in the guidebook. While the main goal is to demonstrate how computer programs “think”, the game is also great for developing planning, sequential logic, and problem-solving skills. Code Master is a single-player game, but can easily be passed around level-by-level for some family fun!

    Combine logic and science for a fun, electrifying lesson in circuitry. Sixteen tokens snap into place in different combinations to complete the circuit and light the beacon. Challenge cards get you started by showing where to place your starter token, and then you figure out where to place the other tokens needed to complete the pattern (circuit). Three AAA batteries (not included) are placed in the battery receptacle, which is also your start token. The start and finish tokens are wired together and are the power supply for your circuit. You are to use only the tokens seen on the challenge card. There are 60 challenge cards divided into four levels beginner, intermediate, advanced and expert. Light up your logical thinking with this twist on the Rush Hour game.▲CHOKING HAZARD (1). Not <3yrs.
