Five penguins are on a slippery slope! Can you pack the ice so that every puzzle can fit on the game board and make sure that all the penguins are in the right spot?
Penguins on Ice is a super cool game of logic with 5 pentomino puzzle pieces that must be shape-shifted. Includes 60 challenges to solve from easy to difficult.
How to Play:
1. Choose a challenge.
2. Put all 5 pieces on the game board, in such a way that all the penguins are positioned in the places shown in the challenge. Don't forget that you can change the shape of all the puzzle tiles!
3. There is only one correct solution per challenge.
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.
This game was for a ten year old. The puzzles are challenging, yet the guide in the back provides help when needed. Adults use this game many times as well. Since the game pieces can shift, the game provides a more interesting twist.

Review for Penguins on Ice
Posted 6/28/2011 by NLI
Based on the concept of pentominoes (variations of five squares in 12 possible configurations) but also includes the transformation of one into another. I love activities that are more than they seem at first!
Solutions to the problems require changing the shapes as well as finding how they will fit together.
Advertised entry level age may be a bit low with the shape-shifting requirement.
Some alternate spelling variations of this product:
