What People Say about Melissa and Doug Puppy Pursuit Games:
“A very nice game for a preschooler. We all played this on Christmas Day. Must be played with an adult if the child does not read. The cute little well made dogs are a nice touch. Most games now do not quality pieces or construction, so we all really appreciated the care taken with this game.” – Opera Lover “bhutros”
“This was the hands down favorite present my daughter got for Christmas. She can’t stop asking us to hide the puppies or having us find the ones that she has hidden. I haven’t looked at all the different game options yet, mainly because my daughter is so happy with the basic hide and seek game, but it is nice to know there is a variety of ways to play.” – FairLeaBantams
“My daughter loves this game – especially when we hide multiple puppies without her knowing, then leave the first clue where she will stumble across it. We get a kick out of trying to stump her, she likes tracking down the puppies.
For younger kids you may need to be selective as to which clues to use as it could be frustrating if there is more than one place to look based on the clue: “look for me in the bathroom” could be on another floor in our house.
Melissa and Doug Puppy Pursuit Games is an excellent guided game and good for social interaction between kids of different ages, where the older one is setting it up and the younger one is playing.” – gf
