Our family loves games, and I love the idea of a game that doesn’t require any electronics. I had heard of Rush Hour before, so I was excited to try out Rush Hour Jr. with my two girls.
Just like the classic Rush Hour® game, you shift blocking cars and trucks out of your way to clear a path to the exit. The 40 leveled brainteaser challenges are a fun way to build problem-solving skills. Rush Hour Jr. is ideal for younger ages but still plenty of fun for an adult brain!
Rush Hour Jr. is recommended for ages 5+, but both my girls, ages 4.5 and 7, were able to play with and thoroughly enjoy this game. This is a single-player game, although we have played this with a little teamwork when one player gets stuck and someone pitches in with a suggestion.
It is easy to play the game, and my girls were able to figure it out very quickly.
First you choose a challenge card – there are 40 to choose from, and all different levels clearly marked from Easy to Super Hard.
Set up your vehicles as shown on the card.
Slide the vehicles back and forth on the grid until there is a clear path for the Ice Cream Truck to exit the grid!
If you get stuck, the challenge cards have solutions printed on the back.
Rush Hour Jr. comes with a carry bag, which is great for both storage and traveling. This way we can keep all the pieces together, and the kids can take the game with them when we travel. The pieces are easy to fit in the bag, and it is nice to have frustration-free storage.
Overall, my kids are a big fan of this game, and so am I. I love that they are using their minds, working on problem-solving skills, and having fun (while unplugged, at that!). Rush Hour Jr. encourages them to apply their minds and even work together as a team.
