When I got the opportunity to review a new game about music, I knew Apple would love it. What I didn't realize is that she would LOVE LOVE LOVE it and that Speedy would enjoy it too! ThinkFun's newest game is Compose Yourself. This game allows your child to compose their own music using included cards and a computer.
The game includes 60 music cards, a travel bag, and access to the Compose Yourself website. It is so easy to use. It only takes a couple of minutes to get started. Your child (or you!) selects 4, 8, 12, or 16 of the cards. These clear plastic cards are each designed to be used 4 different ways. Then, they put in the numbers for the cards on the website. Instantly they can hear their beautiful musical creation.
In conclusion, Compose Yourself is an easy, fun way for anyone ages 6 and up to learn more about music and composing their own songs. The music is beautifully played from a real orchestra instantly. The game is interesting and will entice kids to create their own songs again and again. The 60 transparent cards can be used in so many combinations that they are sure to create more than one piece every time they play.
I received a free game from ThinkFun in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
