Dr. Seuss Thing Two and Thing One Whirly Fun Game Review (Wonder Forge)

Dr. Seuss Thing Two and Thing One Whirly Fun Game
What It Is

Classic Dr. Seuss characters come off the book pages and onto a game board in the Dr. Seuss Thing Two and Thing One Whirly Fun! Game. In this cooperative game, players work together to clean up the house before Mother gets home.

The box actually becomes the playing space. Set up all the household items on each star symbol around the house, and then mess everything up by launching the Thing Top in the living room. Then take turns drawing cards and doing the action shown on the card. If the card shows a room, you get to clean up all of the knocked-over items in that room. If the card shows a color, clean up one knocked over item of the indicated color. But if the card shows Thing One or Thing Two, launch the Thing Top in the room that matches the background color on the card to create a mess.

You might also draw The Cat in the Hat, which allows you to clean up any two knocked-over items. If you get a Net, you keep that card and use it later to prevent a Thing One or Thing Two card from being played. 

Drawing a Mother card moves the Mother figure along the path toward the front door. You may choose to move her one, two, or three spaces forward. If everything is tidy when Mother reaches the doormat, everybody wins. But if any items are still knocked over, you'll just have to try again.

The game comes with a box board game, two walls, a path, a Mother mover, a mover base, 16 plastic household items, a top, a top launcher, 40 cards, and instructions.

Is It Fun?
This game is a really cute way to help young kids practice color and shape recognition, physical dexterity, cooperation and teamwork, and the importance of cleaning up after oneself. While those are qualities that parents might appreciate, kids will just like seeing familiar Dr. Seuss artwork throughout the game and spinning that top to make a mess.
Who It’s For
The Dr. Seuss Thing Two and Thing One Whirly Fun! Game is for one or more players ages 4 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
Some assembly of the game board is required, but it's easy to do and will take you about five minutes.
