Some of us LOVE color. You know who you are... your heart beats a little faster when you happen upon a Pantone swatch book. You seldom describe a color in one word - "red," because "tomato red" and "brick red" live in different zip codes of your color memory.
How accurate is your color memory? Palette is just the fast-paced game to help you find out if you're keen on green, have got a clue about blue, or can think pink! Palette isn't just pretty - it's a riot of fun!
The entire family will be gathered around - with eyes and minds working together in this clever game of color craziness! Just three simple directions make Palette inviting, exciting, and revealing - it's a colorful analysis of the receptors and brain work of your family and friends!
HOW TO PLAY:
1. For just five short seconds -you'll view a specific color (detecting a new wave frequency) and attempt to memorize the color you see.
2. Match the shade you saw so briefly with the correct color swatch and you win that color chip for your palette!
3. When your palette is full of correctly matched color swatches - 6 color chips in all... You Win!
You might just be surprised at the different ways your mind and eyes interpret color. Just the slightest difference in wavelength, and the perceived tint, hue or shade can completely change - challenging your color perception!
Palette is a game that tests the way your eyes and mind work together, provides lively interaction, and lends itself to learning more about the wondrous functions of the eyes and brain. Palette is proof that your detection of color makes your life experiences unique!

Playful fun for a wide variety of ages
Here's something to consider - color is a product of our minds. In nature, color doesn't exist- just wavelengths of different sizes. It is our eyes and the way our eyes and brain work together that create colors. Whatever the range of wave frequency when light bounces off an object - our eye receptors pick it up and our brain deciphers. That is what determines what color it is we "see".
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 6 years of age.
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Learning Disabilities,
Speech & Language Delay
"Palette is a challenging color-matching game which requires no reading to play or adding of scores. It is not at all babyish and is appropriate for all ages. It could be modified to be simpler by limiting the number of chips and color wheels used. No verbal interaction is required, but lots of chatter seemed to be generated as someone would recall an item they had that was that color or discussing favorite colors and different shades."
This is a fun game that challenges your memory in an area that's not often challenged. You'll be surprised at how hard it is to remember the exact color you just saw. It's great for kids and adults - it's one game where our daughter (age 5) is probably better than we are!
Review of Palette
Posted 12/23/2012 by Susan Steed
The recipient of this game was my 6 year old granddaughter who had a paintbrush in her hand before she was a year old. Three generations of us played, including one person with a reading disability. It is terrific because no reading is required and it presents a level playing field for all ages and abilities. Also the physical aspects of the game--the paint chips, color wheels, and palettes worked beautifully. As soon as we had finished, the kids demanded another game and then dragged it to the breakfast table the next morning. Definitely a keeper.
