UNO® was one of my favorite games when I was growing up and now my preschooler can play too — Mattel has come out with UNO Moo!™ Preschool Farm Animal Matching Game (price between $15- $20). This simplified UNO® game comes with 28 farm animal figures, a plastic barn with a handle and 4 “bales of hay” dividers. The object of the game is to be the first to get rid of all your barnyard animals by matching colors and figures to get your animals in the barn.
The barn doubles as a storage case and has the handle — which makes it ultra- portable (and easy to stash away when not in use). It’s ideal for ages 3 and up (the figures are a choking hazard for children under 3) and for 2-4 players.
My son, who turned 4 at the end of September, was the perfect age to understand how to play this game. It was a fun game and an excellent way to reinforce matching similar colors and figures. I loved that my son could actually hold the figures in his hand — making it more of a tangible skill for a preschooler.
Mattel supplied an Uno Moo Game for testing purposes.
