Join Dorothy and her friends on a wonderful Wizard of Oz adventure in this exciting game where you can hear some of your favorite characters.
Spin the spinner and move around the game path. Along the way, you'll land on spaces with Dorothy, Toto and Glinda. Then you'll get to use the Yellow Brick Road speaker. If you hear on of these characters you'll collect a Ruby Slippers card. but if it's the voice of The Wicked Witch of the West that you hear, you'll have to go to the witch's castle and you might lose a Ruby Slippers card... or two!
When you collect three or four Ruby Slippers card, you get a chance at winning. Place them on the spinner card and take three spins. If the spinner lands on Ruby slippers all three times, you're the winner!
Collect those ruby slippers! My six year old niece had a lot of fun collecting the ruby slippers. Sometimes she lost all of them, but was able to quickly get more, so she didn't get upset. Learning to lose gracefully is a very important skill and this game provides opportunities for that without defeating the child. Kids at this age like to win and like to play over and over again, which can be boring to adults. But, this game was fun for both child and adult. I liked it so much that I wanted to buy another game just like it for my grand daughter, but I couldn't find one in the area where I live. As with most board games, there are several pieces and they do get lost. I tried putting parts in zip lock bags, but that didn't really last for long. The game is age appropriate for 5-8 years old.
