Five great card games in one box, this colorful set teaches kids the classics, like Crazy 8's, plus trains them in the ins and outs of lesser knowns like I Doubt It, where they'll get a primer on bluffing and strategy. The sheer joy kindergarteners get from catching a parent in a bluff cannot be overstated. A fun, back-to-basics toy sure to bring many hours of family fun, and lay the foundation for sportsmanship, turn-taking, and patience—skills which do not come easily to five-year-olds.
