What It Is
The Hello Kitty Match and Win Game is a matching board game starring none other than Hello Kitty. The object of the game is to collect the most pairs of matching Hello Kitty figures. Before you play, you must place one sticker on the bottom of each 1.5 -inch Hello Kitty figure. Mix up all the figures and then place them on all of the game board spaces. Players take turns flipping over two figures to find matches. If the sticker image on the bottom of one figure matches the sticker image on the bottom of the second figure, you've found a match and get to remove both figures from the board and place them in front of you. If a match is not found, the figures are placed back in their original spots on the game board. A player continues to take turns until no match is found.
The Hello Kitty Match and Win Game comes with 24 Hello Kitty-shaped plastic playing pieces, a game board, a sticker sheet, and instructions. The game is for two to four players.
Why It’s Fun
This is a very colorful, cute, and simple matching game. No reading is required for young children because the sticker images are just pictures of different objects. And when not playing the game, kids can have all sorts of imaginative play with the Hello Kitty figures.
Kids will also be engaged changing the stickers from game to game, which keeps it interesting and different each time it's played.
Who It’s For
The Hello Kitty Match and Win Game is for ages 3 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
It's helpful for parents to tell kids what each image is as they play so that kids can begin to associate words with the pictures. Plus, preschoolers might not be able to identify some of the pictures. A tree is pretty easy, but a sea lion might not be familiar to a 3-year-old.
