Strategy and simplicity criss-cross and entwine!

    "It can be played with little direction for all ages. It gives the child a sense of I can do this and understanding. They also have the ability to create a pattern with the sticks that is neither right or wrong but theirs which helps with individuality and the freedom to make their own decision. They feel like they have accomplished something by themselves. "

    I use this with large groups of kids, both for organized games and free play. It is very versatile and durable. The kids love it!

    My rating of Pallina
    Posted 1/29/2013 by Laura

    This product looks nice & is made well, but it is very hard to put the sticks in so that the balls actually stay put for any amount of time while the game is in process. The sticks also slide out unless they are positioned completely horizontal, making it very hard to setup. I bought it for my six year old, and unless I am very hands-on with it, he can't make this game work. We have used the sticks to play pick-up-sticks far more often than we have actually played the game Pallina. My 14 & 16 year old daughters even have trouble getting this game to cooperate! I really wouldn't recommend it. It is the only product I have ever purchased from Fat Brain Toys that was a disappointment.

    If the sticks are giving you the slip, set things straight with a visit to the Returns & Exchanges Center. We assisted our customer promptly.

    Fun Game for All Ages

    What an ingenious game! The concept is simple and my daughter has created several different ways to play it, beyond the "rules" that came with it.
