Comments about Product: It is very difficult to find the game Chinese Checkers at any store carrying children's games such as Target, Wal-Mart, etc, and even the most upscale children's toy stores. When I was shopping Hearthsong and saw that they offered Chinese Checkers, I immediately ordered one. My grandchildren, ages 5-7, love both games. The board is exceptionally sturdy and the marbles are very good as well. However, the checkers are small and not the same size and quality of checkers that come with a game of checkers that you can buy individually. That was the only disappointment for me. As for my grandchildren, they don't know that checkers can be bigger and have a more raised edge so they enjoy the game as much as chinese checkers...no complaints from them. I am always pleased with Hearthsong, and am so happy to have found Chinese Checkers! The logic and reasoning skills involved in these two games of strategy has improved the attention span and focus for my grandchildren.
