Children: Game Review, Mommy Life

Children’s Game Review: Rush Hour Jr.

I love purchasing games for my daughter that help her think logically and plan accordingly to solve a problem. And it’s an independent game where I can just sit back and relax while I watch her play, lol. I know, terrible but momma needs a break here and there and what better way to keep her occupied while I do my own shit?!

One favorite game that has helped my daughter with her reasoning skills is the “Rush Hour Junior” game brought by “Thinkfun” company. This is another game I had requested for Christmas 2018 Wish List, so she has been playing this game for almost a year and it still keeps her interested and challenged.

Basic Information:

  • Cost: $19.95 currently on Amazon
  • 40 cards with 4 levels: Easy, Medium, Hard, and Super Hard
  • Traffic Grid
  • Ice Cream Truck
  • 15 blocking vehicles
  • Game Bag
  • Age: 5 to 15 years old

Object of the Game:

  • The ice cream truck is stuck in traffic.
  • The cards for each level will display how to set up the other vehicles on the grid alongside the ice cream truck.
  • You will not be using all vehicles for each level so some will be placed back in the bag.
  • The point of the point is to get the ice cream truck out of the traffic jam.
  • You are only able to move the other vehicles either horizontally or vertically.

Skills that are being utilized:

  • Logic Skills
  • Planning Skills
  • Problem Solving Skills
  • Independent Learning Skills
  • Spatial Reasoning
  • Vocabulary: Horizontal, Vertical, Grid

Overall Opinion Of Rush Hour Jr. Game:

  • This is a challenging game but it keeps my daughter entertained for awhile.
  • She enjoys playing it and feels ecstatic when she moves up a level very quickly.
  • She is able to set up the grid by herself at this point and can easily pass the Easy, Medium and Hard levels.
  • She has been playing this game for almost a year and she finds the Super Hard level still challenging. So I think this game can last another year until I move her up another level.
  • Amazing game to help her learn logical thinking skills.
  • This is one of my favorite games and I highly recommend any parent to purchase it.
