HASH(0xa8b8ab1c) out of 5 stars Fun, yet VERY instructive May 31 2009
By Jennifer Donovan - Published on Amazon.com
My son received this for his five-year-old birthday.

The first time we played it, he immediately asked to play again, which shows that it appeals to the target age. My ten-year-old daughter played with us, and while she tolerated it for family fun, she only wanted to play once.

The pieces are very sturdy: the cards are very thick cardboard. The box that it comes in has flaps and a flip-top insuring that the pieces will stay put, even if it falls off the top shelf of the game closet. Not that it would ever happen -- I'm just saying. . . .

The 12-sided die is cardboard instead of plastic, and it's the one element that I could see succumbing to wear and tear.

However, the fact that there is a die AND a game board/spinner (which is used if you land on a certain square) makes the playing of the game pretty fun for a 5-year-old.

This is perfect to build up sight words, since the same articles and prepositions appear over and over, and the verbs are simple ones. The noun cards have a picture with the word, helping children make that association.

In all -- I recommend this -- and I'm thankful that he received this as a gift instead of junk!

HASH(0xa8b91060) out of 5 stars Very poorly constructed. Extremely disappointed with DK. Jan. 31 2016
By Bruce Willis - Published on Amazon.com

1. I ordered this on Jan 17 and received Jan 29. Not good enough!
2. I have Silly Sentences and use in a Reading Remediation environment. I was excited to be able to find another game like that. I expect a lot from any DK purchase. The quality of this product is (almost) shocking to me.
a) The instructions have been poorly glued to the inside of the lid. While it is a great place to put the instructions, the way in which it has been glued certainly reeks of "amateur show to me".
b)The dice is so poorly constructed (like it was cut from a flat sheet of thin cardboard and clicked together) and it is going to break very easily. I thinking it will take one kindergarten man to devour it in less than 5 minutes. I have had to use clear tape to try to strengthen and straighten the surfaces.
c) The spinner is completely unusable. It does not spin due to tightness of the central pop rivet. I cannot do anything about this, so will have to change the rules of the game.

NOT GOOD ENOUGH DK. Very disappointed. I am not returning it because the game itself is excellent for my purposes. I do not believe it would last any longer in a domestic environment.

HASH(0xa8b91858) out of 5 stars Good concept ... bad execution Dec 30 2014
By David Tuft - Published on Amazon.com
This was given as a gift to our nearly 5 y.o. daughter (emerging reader). She was skeptical at first, but when her nearly 7 y.o. sister (a reader) opened and started playing, she jumped right in. They enjoyed the silly sentences and I think it's helpful to pick up the parts of speech. BUT, while the cards are sturdy, the parts that advance the game ... the die and spinner are flimsy and non-functional after just two days. The die completely fell apart and the spinner isn't posiitoned high enough to actually spin! Shame on the manufacturer for not putting more into those pieces as this would have been a favorite for a long time.

HASH(0xa8b9142c) out of 5 stars Great game for practicing reading and learning the parts of speech! Aug. 1 2011
By M. Jolly - Published on Amazon.com
I found this game very cheap at a local store and bought it for my three year old. I was nervous about if she would be old enough to play, but she reads on a high level for her age and the game was cheap. As soon as we got it home we started playing. It is a very easy game to learn and not one of those games that lasts a terribly long time! We probably played at least fifteen times before I was able to get her to take a break! She absolutely loves it, and I must say that it is my new favorite as well. Each part of speech is color-coded and there is even a cheat sheet on the instructions to help parents explain the parts of speech when your child picks one. The game is good quality. My only concern is that the dice included is made of cardboard. As long as you teach your kids to respect the property though, I don't see that being an issue. Great game for practicing reading and for learning the parts of speech. I think the company offers a whole line of educational games like this, that I will be checking out. I am very satisfied with my purchase.

HASH(0xa8b919e4) out of 5 stars Not recommended June 27 2015
By Russell D Fendick - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
We bought this for our son with autism in the hope that it would be a fun way to expand his ability to form sentences. It was not at all fun for him, and I didn't like it either. He loves the card game "Story Smash Up". I would recommend that game to other people looking for a sentence building game. Specific comments on this product: 1) The spinner doesn't spin. 2) The multi-sided die is so flimsy I had to use tons of scotch tape to hold it together. 3) The pace was very slow.
