You may not thank me for adding this, but the box states it is for ages 2-4.

"Ages 2 years and up"

All the pieces are attached to the sturdy board, so there's nothing to lose - other than the instructions and box.

A lovely game, purchased from Book Depository. Cooperative play, dice rolling, fun toddler/pre-school activities and beautifully made components. Manufacturer suggests 2+, users suggest 2-5 years.

Stacking animals is great fun, and already doable with a two year old. Apply the rules as much as is fun. My seven year old also still likes this, so it is a good investment.

Just came across this list and, on the assumption that others will do the same while researching games for their children, thought I'd add one or two. First Orchard is an excellent first game, with great components. Manufacturer suggests 2+, users suggest 2-6 years.

Suggested Age is 3+, but I have found that it plays just fine with 2 year olds.

A great first game for kids. It teaches turns and sharing and it gives them a game of their own that they know how to play.

Our 2 year old was able to pick this up right away, before she was able to play Candyland or Snail's Pace Race.

...but all the parts, are large (2"×2" or bigger), and my 20½-month-olds love saying and signing what all the pictures depict.

"2-8 years"
As a glorified puzzle, Good Night works just fine for even one-year-olds, with a little supervision.

This game has 5 game modes that younger gamers can graduate into as they get older, but it also has large chunky pieces that the littlest gamers can safely play with.

Our boys were playing this as early as 2 years old. Teaches great turn taking, and color recognition, and die rolling. Two color sided die determine the movement of the snails in the race. No one wins our looses, everyone moves all snials on their turn. Children can discuss who they think will come in first as the race continues.

Great wood snail peices. My son always asks for this one.

"from 2 years on"

Like many of the Haba games targeted at the really young audience, several different levels of "play" are recommended, which include reading the poem and pointing things out in the illustrations, freely playing with the parts as toys, and actually playing the game with rules.

A one player game, making pictures by matching large, coloured, plastic buttons to an underlying picture, and plugging them into the see-through board. Lovely Ravensburger pieces, great colour matching practice, dexterity practice for small fingers. Manufacturer recommends 2+, users suggest 2-3.
