    Oct 21, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The fun of building, then using the mousetrap!
    Cons: Hard to do without an older child or adult to help!

    Summary: Ah memories! When I was a child we played a lot of board games ~ we did call them bored games as that is when we seem to think of playing them! Since cable, VCR's and DVD's weren't around, we would kill time by playing games. One ... read more

    Aug 17, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: I'll have to get back to you on that...
    Cons: Someone thought it was a good idea...

    Summary: I've always loved board games; the only one that stands out in my mind as disliking as a child was Mousetrap. I managed to hold off my eldest on bringing this game home until she pulled out all the stops, including "I'll use my own money." At that point ... read more

    Pros: Lots of bright shiny parts.
    Cons: Lots of bright shiny parts.

    Summary: I was first introduced to this interesting game when I babysat a little boy as a teenager. He loved it, but I just didn't see the fun in it. It seemed like such a lot of work setting up all the pieces into an intricate contraption. And the game ... read more

    Pros: Can help in educating kids in following directions.
    Cons: Hard to assemble, Parts are easy to lose

  • Mousetrap is fun to watch

    Feb 8, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It's really fun to watch and it is interesting for young children
    Cons: The set up time is too long to keep interest of young children.

    Summary: The appeal of watching the trap work is the best part of the game. It takes a lot of patience to set the game up. Do not lose or break a piece or the game is rendered useless. I suggest that if you want to play the game with children under 8, that ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: the mouse was cute
    Cons: need an engineering degree to play this

    Pros: very creative
    Cons: lots of pieces that can get lost

    Summary: Bob the Tomato was right on when he made this dry remark in Veggie Tales' "The Toy Who Saved Christmas". While this game is as zany and crazy as it gets, it is also completely safe (unless someone swallows one of the mice). Younger kids enjoy ... read more
