Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for those just learning to play structured games This is a fun game to work on prepostional concepts, multistep directions and some basic vocabulary words. This has been a great game to use with my pre-school population that is just learning to play more structured games. As a speech-Language Pathologist, this has been a great tool to use for my students who are working on location concepts and novel 1 and 2 step directions. The direction cards have great visual cues which serve as good reminders for the students. I like that students are able to use this toy to give me directions as well. The direction cards are a lighter weight card-stock, so I laminated them to prevent them from being bent up or ripped. The rest of the toys are a nice plastic. The kids love the manipulatives and hiding the object cards. It has been a fun and interactive way to learn to play games as well as preposition words.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great product I got this for my nephew and he had difficulty understanding what to do with it at first. But when we sat down and played with it together, he became interested. I loved that he had a way to show off to his auntie that he knew his colors and numbers and animal sounds. I'm so glad I gave this to him! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rhyming Positions I received this game as part of an incentivised review program. I am a elementary teacher in Illinois. I think this game is great for peopkle looking for a cute game to have Pre K through first graders learn about positional words. The rhyming make the game a little silly and fun for these studnets. It is engaging and interactive as children place the picture cards on, in, over, below, etc. the colorful rhyming objects. The back of the box clearly and accurately depicts the contents of the box. I would recommend this product to teachers as part of a center and parents as part of a learning game at home. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So. Much. To. Do! When you first open the box, you notice right away the tree, the box (with a lid!), the hat, and the chair. They're pretty big materials. With those items, you can match colors and rhyming words, and use prepositions to place little squares with pictures on them. Then there are activity cards and a spinner to also help guide you in your play with those manipulatives. At first, the directions were a bit overwhelming because of all the options, so our boys just played their own way, which worked great as well. The spinner is supposed to be double sided, but we couldn't get the arrow to detach from the one side so we could attach it to the other side. I looked for directions on how to change it on the website and couldn't find an answer. There's still lots to do without the other side of the spinner, but it would be nice to use it. Regardless, I know we'll come back to the fox in the box set again and again. And it all fits so well inside it's own box! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun for reinforcing positional concepts When we received this game, my three older children played with it right away. While there are instructions included in the box, it's pretty self-explanatory once you look at the pieces (4 bright, plastic "rhyming" objects - a hat, chair, box, and tree; a spinner; small picture cards - bee, cat, stair, etc.; and activity cards). The game lends itself well to variations, which allows the children to be creative while playing. It's a simple concept: read the card and figure out which small picture card to place where in relation to which larger plastic item -or spin the spinner and select a small card and rhyming object to use. My children divide activity cards and take turns, then they spin the spinner for a new position. Sometimes, they just play with the cards and make up their own positions and rhymes "the cat is BEHIND my back!" They have fun with it, though my 9 y/o tends to tire of it relatively quickly. It's suggested for ages 4 and up, and my 4 y/o enjoys it the most; however, she needs someone to help her play, since the game requires some reading ability. She has found a helpful reader and playmate in her older sister, who at 7 is just young enough that she likes to share her ever-growing reading ability! It is good, fun reinforcement for positional words and concepts, and my four year old is learning to figure out and read some of the more repeated words. I enjoy playing the game and watching my children play, but I really wanted to love it more. The concept is fantastic, and the execution is well done, too; I am not sure what I would change to improve the game. Perhaps small plastic figures in lieu of the cardboard cards to show the positions, or even some kind of game board to keep track of scores to make it seem competitive? It is a fun game, and I would recommend it to parents or teachers of younger children (pre-k through 1st grade). I received this as part of an incentivized review program in exchange for my honest review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fox In The Box This game is so much fun. This game teaches you the different types of skills that can be used (spinner use, reading, rhyming) as well as the obvious intent of the game are helpful in developing multiple skills at differing age levels. Great for family time, or in a classroom! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
