MAIN Arrow to Toy ReviewsToy Reviews Arrow to MemoryMemory


Memory Game The suggested age range is from 36 months to 6 years old but who doesn't want to keep their memory sharp as a tack? Adults can play this game too and reap the benefits. Memory helps develop the ability to concentrate and improve memory. The difficulty of the game really depends on how many matches have been hidden and how much a stickler to the rules the players are.

There are 72 cards (36 matches) all with bright and colorful images that children love. Practice makes perfect when you play this game because if you are looking for the airplane card and you keep turning over the kitty cat card you get pretty good at finding that kitty cat card. The trick is finding the other kitty cat card before someone else. Eventually all the cards have been seen at least once and finding the matches gets easier as they are found and eliminated from the face down cards.

Other bonuses: There is no reading involved so these can be used sort of like flash cards to help children learn some of their first words. Not to mention the fact that the cardboard that the cards are made of is pretty sturdy so they hold up to even the meanest teether.

Object of the game: Be the one to find the most matches.

How to play the game: Determine how matches to begin with. For beginners or very small children, you can start as low as 4 cards or 2 matches. For the more advanced player there are up to 36 matches to make! Mix up the cards face down and then arrange them in whatever order you want. With the youngest player going first, take turns trying to find a match. If you find a match you get to go again. If you don't find a match it is the next player's turn.

Why parents love this game:

  • It is a great generational game

  • No batteries needed

  • Encourages taking and waiting for turns

  • Develops eye-hand coordination

  • It is a great family activity or it can be a one player game

  • Enhanced memory and concentration skill

  • Helps teach "first words" to smaller aged children
