    I bought this for my nephew (age 5)- he and his sister (age 8) both love it. It’s a bit different than many of the flashy, fast paced games available now (my sister described it as folksy) but it makes the kids think and is entertaining. It has worked pretty well on their Mac, although there has been a couple times when the screen has gone blue- can’t see the picture but can hear what’s going on. On those occasions my sister had to restart the computer.

    My four year old son absolutely loves this game. It took him a little while to figure stuff out, and I’ve had to give him hits, Like when he couldn’t get through the mud I said that he must need some type of off road tires. He figured out which tires to put on his car. He also loves putting together different wacky cars and seeing what kind of score he can achieve at the car show. There’s still lots that he hasn’t figured out yet but I think over time he’ll figure it out. I do think he is a little young for this game, but there is still lots that he can do. . . and he has lots of fun doing what he can.

    This game definately helps kids work on their critical thinking skills! My son just turned 6 and I agree with another poster. . . this is perfect for ages 5-8!! Any younger and it would be too frustrating and any older and they’d get bored. It is a slower-paced game that requires thinking and problem solving! You create cars. . . you help out the people in your town. . but you have to think. For example. . . to get to a destination that you need to go (like a party you’ve been invited to) you have to cross a muddy patch. . . if you don’t have the correct tires, you can’t go across. You have to find the right tires in the junk yard, but if they aren’t there then you might have to go do some other favors for people and they will give you spare parts in return. . . and maybe someone will give you the right tires!! Lots of fun! Not your normal game!

    Allows children to create cars from all kinds of bits of junk. My son (5) has had lots of fun with this since getting it for Christmas. Also try the Crazy Machines game if you have a builder in your house.

    This game is perfect for my son as he works on cars with his grandfather at his auto body shop. My son is 8 and it appears that he’ll get bored with the game fairly quickly as it’s not very challenging for an 8 year old. I’d say that ages 5-8 would work best for this game.
