I was asked to review uKloo and I am glad that we did! Here is what Amazon says:

We loved it!!! uKloo is a very engaging treasure hunt game that will get your child thinking as it combines critical thinking skills with hands on fun! It will also boost reading comprehension and the riddles are very clever. It isn’t often you get a game that is fun, educational and also has teachable moments that extend far beyond the game. Kids also have the opportunity to make up their own riddles! While the kids are playing what they do not realize is how much they are learning! They are building language and critical thinking skills that extend far beyond the game.
The age recommendation for uKloo is ages 7+. However, my youngest, who is 5, was able to play and understand the game. The recommendation by the company is just that – a recommendation. Depending on the development of younger children, I don’t see any problems in including them in this game. Again, that is at the discretion of the parent because they know more about their child(ren) than anyone.
The cards are divided into three categories.
We used level one for my youngest, level two for my middle son and level three for my oldest. My oldest, who normally likes much harder games, really enjoyed the riddles! I was happy that the whole family could benefit from this game. The boys already have asked to play it more than once.
Another added benefit to this game is the riddle writing guide! It will take your child on a learning adventure and teach them how to write their own riddle! As a homeschool mom, I give uKloo an A+!!!
Need a gift for Christmas? Looking for a game to add to your library? Want a game to challenge your children? Try this wonderful game! You won’t be sorry.
*** I received Ukloo through Tomoson in hopes that I would share it on my website. The opinions expressed our my and my families alone.***
