Training Games: Rhino Hero Junior

June 24, 2021

This is part of a series called Training Games, where I review children's games when playing (with modified rules) with my twin toddlers. This review was written when my twins were 21 months old.

We received a free copy of Rhino Hero Junior from HABA when my toddlers were 20 months, and I let them unbox and unpunch it. The game comes with a lot of thick cardboard pieces, which my kids loved punching out. One also enjoys putting the pieces back into the punchboard, so I’ve saved some punchboard for that.

Tidy Up! Is a game where you have cardboard squares representing different types of toys - stuffed animals, vehicles, or blocks. The box itself has a storage shelf of cardboard with slots in it, so you take a piece and put it into the correct slot to match the type of toy.

Teddy’s Colors and Shapes has boards with different cut out shapes and wooden pieces of different shapes and colors. You roll a die that’s either a color or a shape (depending on which mode you’re playing) and then get one of those colors or shapes and place them into a corresponding cut out.
