This game is well suited for the young and growing mind. Kids don’t have to know how to read to start playing. They learn as they go along. Advanced cards are provided as players become older. It comes with a game board, two sets of playing cards (beginner and advanced), six colorful treasure balls, key and the treasure chest. It’s designed for two to four players.
— “The Cranium games are very popular because they’re educational as well as a lot of fun. I think a lot of teachers use them. You can start as young as age 3, and play all the way up to the teens,” summed up Lee Ann Stern, general manager of The Village Toy Shop in Canton, Mass.
— “Lately, it’s been Cariboo by Cranium,” was what Daniel Janoska, of Talbot’s Toyland in San Mateo, Calif., said when asked about the best-selling game in his store.
— Cranium “Head of the Hive” Heather Snavely was excited to talk about this popular game. She told TDmonthly, “Cranium Cariboo is a shining star in its category because it engages preschoolers in the thrill and excitement of a treasure hunt, while reinforcing letter, number, shape and color recognition. ... Cariboo also fosters parent-child interaction, as it’s designed in a format that’s fun for adults to play along.
