Marvelous Matching Valentine Game
Great classroom game
I bought this for my daughter's 4th grade Valentine's party. First I numbered the individual hearts on the back with 1 - 28 (I only used half of them), and then I used magnets to affix the pieces to the classroom white board. The students just called out what numbers and then the parent helps would turn them over to see if the student had found a match. The game was a total hit and the students were rewarded with a small prize for every match they found. It held the kids attention and they really got into it!! Another great advantage to this game is that it can be used over and over again. I have already recommended it to other teachers looking for a fun game that can be done on a classroom scale, especially if you use all 56 hearts.

Should be a fun Valentine game for my preschool class.

My daughter loves these. The only problem was on the back the printed Oriental Trading logo is misspelled. Kind of strange.

I got these for my daughter's kindergarten party. The kids loved them and had a wonderful time. They were sturdy and held up great. The teacher asked if she could keep them and use them again. I would buy these again next year.

Very nice quality game
This game is really cute and sturdy for little hands, so it doesn't get bent or anything like that. I was a little hesitant after reading the review about the beat up edges of the game, but I have had great experience with this company in the past when I wasn't satisfied with an order so I took a chance and I am glad I did. I will have this in my classroom for many valentine holidays to come.

Avoid Buying This Item
The edges of the cards are not nice, smooth, clean cuts but look like they have been played many times. Some of the cards are stuck together which tears the image when pulled apart. Other cards are also wrinkled as if the paper got wet and then was allowed to dry. The coloring and images are not bright like what is shown. A very poor quality product that Oriental Trading should send back to the manufacturer and not offer to their customers.

great entertainment for all ages
Children aged 6 thru 15 were playing this game and loving making the matches! My only complaint... 1 heart was missing, so I am missing 1 pair as a result. No big deal. The patterns are bright and distinct! Fantastic game. I hope one is made for Easter with eggs.

Bought this to use as a game station for my daughter's class Valentine's Day party. The hearts were bigger than I expected and sturdy. The game itself was a hit with the kids and I was glad the hearts held up! In fact, I left the game with the teacher so the kids can play it again and again. Would recommend to others.

Cute and Nice Quality
I used these in a fish-and-match hearts game for a special ed class Valentine's Day party. They are very cute and the quality was great. The hearts are made of heavy duty board and aren't flimsy or cheap.
The only disappointment was that several sets were stuck together and tore when separated. Still, a good value as long as you don't mind losing a few of the sets.
