Described as a combination of Where’s Waldo? and Charades with sounds, this patent-pending easy-to-learn and easy-to play game was created specifically for the preschool set.  A player chooses   a picture card and gets the others to guess what’s on the card by imitating the sound it makes.  Choo-Choo!  Beep Beep!  Gobble Gobble!  Those are just the easy ones … but guessing the sound is only half the fun.  Once the sound is identified (e.g. Choo Choo for the train), players race to find the object that makes it amid one of six preschool-friendly illustrated scenes such including Around the Farm, Costume Party, A Day at the Zoo and Out on the Street, each filled with action and surprises.
 
Featuring 72 cards and six giant-scene boards, each drawn in a whimsical, original style, Sound It! Found It! Junior combines visual hilarity with the unique twist of guessing sounds, offering hours of laugh-out-loud fun.  No reading required.
