OK first off look at the cute packaging of this game. The colorful box with the peeking cat in the top and the crazy eyes...who wouldn't want to play this game.
When we opened the box we were really impressed with the bright, colorful pieces and appreciated the game instructions also being cat shaped.
It’s nap time for the itty bitty kitties, but they just want to play! Help them jump, bat the yarn balls around, and race to the basket without catching a look from the watchful eyes of the mommy cats. Each turn, roll the dice, look for the mommy cat matching their colors, and lift one. If she doesn’t catch you, your kitten advances one yarn ball closer to the basket and you get to go again. If she spots you, it’s the next players turn. The first kitten back to the basket wins! Players must correctly identify colors, and remember which mommy cat eyes will catch the kittens so that the fun never stops in this adorable memory game.
This weekend I babysat a 3 and 6 year old along with my daughter. All three girls loved this game and the playing pieces. It is a really cute memory game for 4 players. Each player takes a cat (blue, green, red or yellow/orange) (depending on which kid I asked).
Your job is to roll the dice, and move your kittens around to each yarn ball making it back to the basket without mommy cat seeing you. The dice has colors that correspond to the mommy cats colors.
Put your basket in the middle with all player cars inside it. Put the mommy cats around and finally the yarn cards around. Next we put two eyes on each cat. One eye has a cat on the bottom. You don't want to pick that one because that means mommy cat saw you. As you roll, you move around to each yarn as long as mommy doesn't see you. If she does STOP and wait for your next turn. If you never get mommy's eye you can keep going. Just try to remember which eye has the cat on the bottom.
We thought the game was really cute and allowed the 3 year old to play however she wanted. She mostly wanted to move her cat around. The 6 year old did great and my 14 year old, cat loving chick loved it.
