What color are the panda's eyes? And which color is on the right and which is on the left? Can you be the first to match them correctly?

Players shake the dice and race to be the first to match their panda game cards to the colors of the dice shown. Make the correct match and collect a bamboo reward tile. Once all tiles are collected, players add the bamboo pieces shown on the tiles. The player with the most bamboo shoots (some tiles show one, others show two) wins the game.

Our young testers were fully engaged as they seamlessly practiced identifying and recognizing colors, matching patterns, taking turns, and sharpening fine motor and visual discrimination skills. Our intrepid and beloved preschool teachers took the game several steps further and talked about what pandas eat and where they live. The classes looked at a globe and talked about how long it would take to fly to China. Or drive to the National Zoo in Washington, DC. And eat peanuts and visit grandma.

With its clever premise, appealing box, and call of the wild (preschoolers that is), this quick to learn game includes 4 sets of panda face cards (12 in each set), 1 panda dice shaker, 16 bamboo reward tiles, and an instruction booklet. Designed for 2 - 4 players ages 3 and up.
