Mom and kids (and the unofficial after school day care friends) had loads of fun with this one during the elementary school years.

Charades with kiddie categories (objects, actions, and animals). Sounds are allowed, but not words. Biggest problem is that there are only 20 cards for each category (the cards have the word and a picture of the word on it, so our non-reading children play).

This is a children's game. Kids charades. For limited readers with lots of life experience. The cards have 1 or 2 words and a picture. I found my son could read the words, but didn't know what things like "sewing" were. Great for bringing out imagination and personality. Autism winner.

It's a great game to play with kids, however I must be honest and say that I don't like playing charades with my kids.

Charades in a box. Good for children younger than 8, as it doesn't require reading or thinking up a topic. Works fine for what its design is. We let our youngest just use the animal deck as he finds miming a fridge a bit tricky!

We've played a lot and I'm bored by the cards. (I keep considering adding new ones to the game.) My four-year-old likes this though.

Beginner's Charades game . . . good for teaching basic counting skills and the turn-taking principle . . . My daughter really likes it, though she "*really* likes Pretty Pretty Princess" . . . .

This isn't a game at all, but an activity. That said, Charades is a fun activity, and really young people (a gregarious 3 year-old, for example) can play.

I hate this game. I can't wait until my kids grow out of the phase that forces them to play crappy board games, and they start to play Daddy's fun games like Railroad Tycoon and Through the Ages. Until then, this piece of [ADJECTIVE REDACTED] crap sits in my closet waiting for my kids to grow up and we make one large charitable contribution to Goodwill!

EDIT (06/05/2014): This has now been donated to Goodwill, as well as a few other really, really bad games that were taking up space in a closet. I am very happy that my daughters are finally grown up and out of the phase of crappy games.
