    And Zingo Was It's Name-O

    An imaginative twist to the ever-popular bingo for kids. It's a great game that's also educational, too. For both boys and girls age 4 and up, it's a really nice game.

    My Nephew absolutely loves this game

    I bought this for my 3 year old nephew. His parents, and 5 year old sister play this game together often, and whenever they do he calls me to tell me this is the "best game ever". I have gone up several notches on the great-aunt scale thanks to this game.

    Five+ stars / We love this game!

    This is a fun game for all ages. Does not take a long time so you can play a couple games or this one and another in an evening. My 9 yr old and 5 yr old both enjoy playing as does Grandma. Highly recommend to anyone!

    Fun game for the family!

    This game has been a huge hit in our house. My 5 year old received it as a gift but my 3 year old loves playing it just as much. It's a great game for my husband & I to sit around the table and play with them! They think it's hilarious & they like trying to beat Mom & Dad at it! My 5 year old also played with her playgroup & they all loved it too! It's a good game for everyone!

    Zingo game

    Zingo is excellent for preschool children. Our grandkids started at age 2 (for the ones that had older siblings) and age 3 for the ones with no siblings yet. For the youngest it is a matching/recognition/bingo game, but the older they get they are recognizing the letters and small words. We love this game because it can be played in a short time (actually by themselves or with several people), FUN, educational, but most of all they can learn to play it without adults and that is empowering for them to "direct" the game and not the adults. We gave this to our kids before age 5 because we play so many games, but for a child that has not played a lot of games - I think they will love it at age 5!

    My son was obsessed with ZINGO!

    This was a xmas gift for my son (then just over 2yrs old). He went nuts for it and wanted to play it morning, noon and night. He would wake up in the morning and ask to play Zingo before even a "good morning". Thankfully, mania has subsided (he's now 3yrs old).

    We still play and we all love the game. It's a great game and a great choice for a variety of ages. Also- the rounds don't take too long to play so you can bring people in to play one round 2. Fun!

    Fun for Family Game Night

    I had bought this for my niece a couple of years ago just based on the concept and description. But I recently bought it again for my daughter's 5th birthday and have been playing it with her and my 2.5-year old son. My daughter LOVES it. She's at an age where she enjoys the challenge of games. This one is easier to follow, hence, even my son can play it, although he's a little slower to recognize and grab the tiles. I use the tiles as a springboard to reinforce her reading and spelling skills. And as kids' games go, I actually enjoy playing this with my kids. It moves quickly and we can play a couple of rounds in a short time period. I highly recommend this as a fun, simple, educational game for kids starting to be interested in the concepts of game playing, ie. taking turns, competing, winning.

    The only minor complaint I have is the tiles can easily get jammed up in the dispenser, usually because the kids push down on it too hard or don't slide it jerkily.

    Pretty good

    This is a rare find - a game that both my 5 and 2 year olds have fun playing together. My 4 year old can actually play the bingo(zingo) part and my 2 year old loves to operate the card holder. I like that there are 2 levels of play, and it is a short game.

    Fantastic for kids of all ages!

    I bought this for my 6 year old, thinking it would help her learn to spell some simple words. She loves the game but, more importantly, so do my 8 and 3 year olds!

    My toddler loves to play by matching the pictures to the cards and shouting, "Zingo." My 8 year old likes that we can all play together without having to change any rules to make it fair for all ages.

    The tile dispenser mechanism is super fun to operate and I can often convince a new friend to play by offering to let him just do the dispenser!

    We've had the game for a few months now and still play it regularly. It's great for waiting rooms too, since the games last about 10 minutes.

    We recently donated a set to my daughter's kindergarten class and the teacher says it's been a great addition there as well.

    Perfect gift

    I bought this game for my nephew and his mother's comment was that this was the perfect gift. Both him and his sister loved playing this game together. I would recommend this gift.

    Fantastic Game

    This is such an excellent learning game. Our grandkids ages 4 and 5 love playing this game. They are totally engaged 100%. Both children are learning the sounds and letters and can read the words on a separate piece of paper without the pictures. I would definately recommend this product!

    Fun and educational!

    I bought this for my 4-year-old grandson. He and his 8-year-old sister had a great time playing. The tiles have pictures and words, which should help both children with their reading.
