I was recently sent the Haba game: Animal Upon Animal – the Duel to review, and my kids LOVE this game. Even my 11 year old loves this game, and he says it is one of his new favorites.
Haba's game Animal Upon Animal -The Duell is a game where you stack the four animals on top of one another. You have an octopus, a goose, a tiger and a squirrel. This game looks easier than it is. You roll the dice, and one dice tells you what animal is on the top, and one tells you which animal is on the bottom. There is a chance you get to choose how you stack them, but it all depends on what you roll.
It such a fun game because I can race against my 11 year old, or my 4 1/2 year old. This game is great because the 4 1/2 year old doesn't have to read anything, or be of a certain skill level. He has beat me at how fast he stacks.
I love that the pieces are wooden, and they are made in Germany! The wooden playing animals are durable, and cute. My daughter (age 2 1/2) loves just walking the animals in a row, and tries to stack them, too. She loves playing with the little wooden shapes.
Animal Upon Animal Haba Game can be found on the Maukilo website. The Haba games are affordable, and you can get many hours of fun and entertainment with your kids with them! Animal Upon Animal retails for $12.59. Habas games are designed to grow with your child, and I would agree with that. I like that my kids can play this game together, and so can my husband and I. :) Many of the Haba games offer alternate play variations, so as children learn new skills, the game adapts with them. HABA offers many cooperative games, where siblings play against each other, as well as work together to accomplish a common goal, like Castle Knights and Wiggling Cow.
HABA products can be found nationwide at over 1,000 U.S. specialty retail stores and in specialty catalogs and websites. Many of its products have been recognized with German and American awards including Parents’ Choice, National Parenting Center, Creative Child, and Parents’ Guide. HABA received Best Toys of the Year recognition from the TODAY Show Toy Test and has been featured in national magazines such as Child, American Baby, Baby Talk, Fit Pregnancy, Parenting, Parents and Working Mother.
