Engaging and Loads of Fun Sept. 22 2012
By Dadof3 - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
I bought this game for my twin boys' 2nd birthday after researching a lot of games. It teaches (or reinforces) colors, numbers and shapes in a fun way, and also grows with your children (there are several levels of play). The best thing about this game, however, is that it is non-competitive. All players try to beat the "stink bugs" together, and if the bugs win everyone loses, not just one child/player. This has undoubtedly saved me from many meltdowns! We play this game all the time and it's from a great company as well!

Terrific Game! June 14 2013
By Margaret Beckner - Published on Amazon.com

I am a preschool teacher working with 3-5 year old children. This game works on so many levels, is super easy to teach, and you can differentiate the rules based on each player -- one might be only spinning for colors, another be changing the attribute each turn (shape, number, color), and another might be looking for 2-3 attributes at the same time (size of eyes, color, shape). Any number can play. Children can even come and go in the course of the game. The children LOVE the stink bugs too. That cracks them up!

Great game! Feb. 6 2013
By EFD - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
My son got this game, Candyland, and a few others for his 3rd birthday. Night and day! Candyland (with updated art) is just a busy giant picture of candies and sweets. It's a very simple game but almost harder for him to pay attention, the board is so busy and full of sweets. Snug as a Bug on the other hand is such a fun game. At first it was hard for him to read the spinner (it has 4 different rings with colors, numbers, shapes, and big/little eyes), but once he got it he loved it! He loves the stink bugs and likes to hold them.

It's cooperative, nobody wins. We work together to get the bugs under the rug before the 3 stink bugs come! So far we haven't "won" yet, but it doesn't matter, so the rug gets stinky and game play ends. With Candyland he got really worried when Grandma got to the castle first, not because of winning or losing, but because he wanted to get there too. No problem, we kept playing, but we're really instilling this winning vs losing mentality that way.

Love Snug as a Bug!

Quality Cooperative Learning for ALL Children May 3 2012
By Miss Jen Braun - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
Snug as a Bug in a Rug is not just a game but a learning tool as well that is able to engage students of varying levels. I used this game when I worked with my students who have severe disabilities that inhibit their ability to engage with their peers, know colors, shapes & numbers and to respond in a cooperative learning atmosphere. However, I found that my students, when prompted, were able to engage in this game longer than many other activities we have tried. It also encouraged them to build necessary skills appropriate to their developmental level and abilities. I was also impressed with the appearance of the game as it was visually stimulating, which is critical for my students, and the fact that it is a "green" game, after all I live in Seattle! Overall a great rating. I would recommend this game to anyone with children needing to grow in cooperative learning as well as the skills appropriate to their developmental levels.

Great Educational Game for Preschoolers (easily adapted) March 15 2012
By FC - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
Snug as a Bug in a Rug teachers colors, numbers and shapes and can grow with your child depending upon where they are skill wise. Our 4 year old really enjoys this game and often grabs it from the shelf for us to play! This would make an excellent birthday gift idea under $20!

If you have a younger child you may want to watch the smaller bug pieces. They could become lost or bent.

*I was sent this game for review for my honest opinions.
