My little one was very lucky this past Christmas and amongst other things, she was given many games. One particular game her nanny gave her which was this Crocodile Dentist from MB Games. I do not generally make a habit of looking up prices of presents though for the purpose of this review I found out that this game can be bought between £12 to £15 - too high a price if you ask me for what it is as you will see below!
Crocodile Dentist is aimed for children four years and upwards, though I think that the ages of two to three will be able to play this game easily. It is also stated that it is for 2 to 4 players, though my little one plays with it on her own quite happily.
From the size of the box you would expect there to be a lot more included with this game, though all you actually get is one green crocodile whose mouth opens to reveal 10 small teeth. The crocodile itself is quite attractive and would appeal to young children, though to be honest, that is about all on the plus side to this game.
The object of the game is simple. The crocodile is suffering from toothache and you have to find out which tooth is giving him problems. Simply take it in turns to press down a tooth. The looser is the one who makes the crocodiles mouth snap shut on their hand! The winner is the last person in the game.
When the mouth snaps shut, it actually can hurt if you are not quick enough to pull your hand out, though with smaller hands it is not too bad as with adult hands.
When you first purchase this game, there is no hard set up needed, just stick a few stickers onto the crocodile and you are ready to go.
The game literally takes a minute or so to complete and although my little one loved it at first, she has soon thrown it to the back of the toy box as it really does not keep her entertained. Although the tooth changes with each reset, with only ten teeth the game is over as quick as it has begun. To entertain her more, she has started feeding the crocodile little people to eat!
For the price it is sold for, I really do not think it is value for money. It entertained my youngster for a very short time and is now put to one side.
Summary: Not worth the money
