What we think

It’s a fun game that’s easy to set up. With L being 3 years old she’s at the lower end of the age range but found it fine to play. Once I explained what the game was about and how to play it with her she found it interesting. In fact, it was hard to encourage her to come away from the game!

thinking-how-to-play

The game pieces are well made and very colourful. The idea behind building your own butterfly is fantastic for kids. It’s combining playing together, puzzle building, decision making, counting, and collecting. The educational aspect of this game is amazing, there are many benefits and it’s downright fun to play.
