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.

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.

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.
