Young Reader Reaction: none offered by this reviewer

Adult Reader Reaction: This may be the most colorful, most useful, most fun little 10 x 10 near-cube a parent will ever run across. It may also be the best $20 they ever spent. . As a former teacher, I believe children should think education is fun. Ideally, they should be having so much fun at learning they won't know that they are being educated. This is the item that will do it.

Pros: Cranium is suggested for kids seven and up. I'd say way up. It's been awhile since I did homework with kids. Some of this information was very good review for me, too. And there is no age limit on creativity.

Cons: None.

Borrow or Buy: Buy.If I still had elementary kids living at home, I'd buy a half dozen or so of them and keep them on a closet shelf as a year's supply of birthday and Christmas gifts!
