Ani-gram-it Board Game! #Spon #HolidayGiftGuide

**Complimentary products received in exchange for out honest review.  All opinions are ours and ours alone**

We recently had the chance to review Ani-gram-it, a board game about animal classification:


This board game is an award-winning game from Na2ure.
Na2ure is a company founded by an artist who believes children should have the opportunity to be inspired by science and nature. Ani-gram-it lets children use what they already know about animals and learn even more about them through play.

Here is the description of this game from the website:
"Ani-gram-it is like games you know, with a twist - a crossword style game except you make animals, not words, with body parts, not letters. The twist is that the 'animal' can be added to, to make new animals - each set of body parts simply become parts after the last players turn, like an anagram."

The first things we noticed when we opened the game were the beautiful photo tiles.  


We spent quite awhile just sorting through all of the amazing animal tiles and ohhing and ahhing over them:)

Each tile is double-sided with a close up picture of an animal feature on one side and a word on the other which allows for two different methods of play.  

  
The board is also double-sided, so depending on the level of the players, you can play this game several different ways.  


We enjoyed playing with the pictures better since we were just learning the game and our kiddos are a little younger.  This game is kind of like Scrabble, but players are building animals instead of words.  I love that this game encourages discussion and collaboration, as well as a healthy dose of zoology.  

The kiddos also thought is was fun to make up crazy animals and try to outdo each other with super silly combinations...not so much educational, but creative and entertaining nonetheless:)  


This game would make a wonderful gift for the nature-lover on your holiday gift giving list this year!
