Nature/ Type:          Matching/ logic game 

Rating:                     ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ 

Recommended age:  7 year-old ++   

Who would love this: Kids and adults who love colours + brainteaser! 

Hands up if you are a colours-addict, maniac of everything bright and vibrant, and a believer in the power of paint palettes 👩‍🎨. Imagine my thrill when I discovered Educational Insights has a colourful puzzle game called Kanoodle® Fusion that is unlike anything I have ever seen before! Thank you Clover Street for providing a copy! 

Why I love ❤️ this game: 

(1) Brain Challenge With A Blend Of Colours! 

10 translucent puzzle pieces (in different colours/ shapes), 3 round black “blockers”, a booklet with 50 challenges, and a game board with a little surprise - that’s all you need for a day of stimulating brain challenges with a play of colours! I can’t think of a more exciting way to learn about primary and secondary colours in a visual way. Kanoodle® Fusion is a mix between a matching puzzle, and a logic & deduction brain-teaser. The aim is simple: select a challenge, and position the puzzle pieces on the hexagonal game board to match the colours combination and arrangement as shown on the picture. The twist? We may have to blend up to two colours by stacking and layering the translucent pieces - for example, yellow + blue = green, red + blue = purple, red + yellow = orange. The game is a fresh experience for my 7-year-old and he thoroughly enjoyed solving the challenges independently. What surprises me most is that even my 4-year-old (who doesn’t show much interest in logic games usually) was completely enchanted by the colours element and completed 18 challenges in one go! 

(2) Puzzle With Exciting Light-Up Board 

I LOVE the light-up game board with switch button. You will need two AAA batteries and a right-size screwdriver for this (both not included). The light-up effect on the translucent pieces are visually-stunning, and so delightfully beautiful! The backlight really enhances the appearance of the game! 

(3) Brainteaser With Awesome Components & Design 

I love the components and design of this puzzle. The 50 challenges are arranged in progressive difficulties, and solutions are provided at the end of the booklet. The game board also serves as a compact storage box, and everything can be fit and locked neatly inside the handy carry-case. This is a fantastic, portable game for an awesome road trip!
