This is a wonderful "first" board game experience for our grandson. He has enjoyed it immensely and wants to play again and again. Uncle Wiggily and the other characters are charming and the game has interesting twists with "rabbit holes" and backwards moves. There is one set of cards, which differs from the classic game that we had as kids, but it is still a pleasure to play for everyone. Having to draw the card with the exact number needed to win, seemed very exciting to our little guy. The game was packaged well and arrived on time.

I had purchased this for my daughter years ago since I loved it as a child, but it was ruined in Hurricane Sandy, even at 11 she was so upset- found it again for her and was thrilled to see it under the tree!

I bought this game for two young girls. It seemed like a nice change of pace to introduce a board game for them to interact with others instead of everyone using a electronic device. Although I have not seen the game in years, it was a favorite when I was younger. It was warmly received.

I bought this game for the little girl that I baby sat when she was just a baby. How I found you was you had sent me one of you catalogs. As I looked through many memories from my own childhood ran through my head! I played the Uncle Wiggly game back in the early 1950's. I kept the game for many years and my own daughter played it. I also had the book for many years, its now in tatters
Looking though your catalog brought back memories of my childhood and 1960's teen years. I was born in 1946. Nancy Owens, St. Louis, Missouri

What Our Customers Are Saying about Our Uncle Wiggily Game …
"Back in the 50's when I was just learning to play games, I moved from Candy Land (my first) to Uncle Wiggily. I loved the game and my mother kept the game. I have it to this day. Now I want to give an Uncle Wiggily game to my grandaughter for Christmas. Thanks for keeping it going. Sincerely, An old little girl" - SANDY DANIELS, RIVERHEAD, NY
"I remember this game fondly from when I was young. I loved my Uncle Wiggly game because it was a game I could play and be like my older sisters. It was MY game and I loved to play. The Storybook was also a joy and I remember my sister reading stories from it to me. Memories I will always cherish!" - Tammy Bosse, New Lenox, IL
"During the 1970s, my mother gave me two full color hardback editions of Uncle Wiggily books she had read in her own childhood. After that I was hooked. My younger sister and I also enjoyed the Uncle Wiggily Game at that time, as well as a vinyl LP of Uncle Wiggily read by either Howard Garis or one of his children [I don't recall]. There were stories on that LP that I hadn't seen in other Uncle Wiggily books, such as "Uncle Wiggily and the Sad Rock." Seeing the Uncle Wiggily Game in your catalog brings back one sweet memory from my childhood. Thank you!" - Jeff Beaudry, columbia, MD
"My two brothers and I grew up in the 1950's, begging my mother to read the Uncle Wiggly books over and over to us. One Christmas, much to our delight, Santa brought us the Uncle Wiggly game which we played so often over the years, we finally wore it out. We missed it so much, our parents got us another one. When we finally outgrew it, our cousins were the incredibly lucky recipients of it, and they loved it too. I am a retired educator and Uncle Wiggly fan who highly recommends this game." - Jen, Weedsport, NY
