What our experts think
Alphabet Runner® consists of several games with simple concepts that promote concentration, observation and memory skills. Our testers liked that each game doesn’t take too long, so found it good for keeping in a bag when out and about or travelling.
For the Maxxras game, our testers did find it a little tricky to get their heads around the rules at first, but once they got it, found it very simple. There is lots of room for progression as it gets harder each time more letters are needed to make a word – this is great for building confidence in spelling and developing vocabulary as the children challenge themselves.
