I gave these to my son on his third birthday as lately he has been fascinated with facial expressions. He has really enjoyed using it so far and gets it out of his own accord. It creates lots of discussion about feelings. Although there are no descriptions the pictures are really clear and also fun. The pieces are the perfect size for little hands and feel nice. They pack away easily in their wooden box which he enjoys doing. There are no instructions for ‘game play’ as such but you can play like bingo if you wanted as there are several boards. A cute gift.
