Smart Games: Snow White Logic Game for Kids Review
We are always on the lookout for fun and educational games and toys for our children, so when we were given the opportunity to review Smart Games’ Snow White game, we were thrilled! Snow White is perfect for children ages 4-7 (and even those younger and older) and packs in a lot of fun and learning. We instantly fell in love with the bright colors, high-quality pieces, and brain-boosting challenges. To see all the details, please continue reading below.

What You’ll Need
- Adorable cottage with opening shutters and door
- Snow White
- Seven dwarfs
- Wicked witch (or, as my little ones like to refer to her – “apple lady”
- Spiral bound book of challenges with solutions included
- Picture book
Begin by selecting which challenge you’d like to start with. The guidebook includes 48 different challenges of varying levels of difficulty. We started with the first challenge, which was very easy, and worked our way up from there.
Object of the Game
The object of the game is simple – correctly place Snow White, the seven dwarfs, and “the apple lady.” 😉 Getting there may or may not be so simple, and will require deductive reasoning skills. Don’t worry though, each challenge offers a solution – if you get stuck, simply turn the page to see the correct placement. This also makes it easy to check your work once you’ve completed a challenge.
Playing the Game
Once you’ve selected which challenge you’d like to start with (we started out with the easiest – which is the first one in the book – and then quickly went up from there), arrange the figures as directed. Before long, Miss 7 and I were on to the master level (you didn’t think I was going to let her have all the fun, did you? 😉 ). As you can see from the image below, it shows where to place the apple lady and purple dwarf. Once they have been placed, begin placing the other figures by working through the given clues. For this challenge, the orange dwarf cannot go in a window, the blue dwarf cannot go in a green room, and the purple and green dwarf must be in the same room.
All the pieces snap in well, which is great, especially if the cottage is bumped (or knocked over by a younger sibling) in the middle of play. We tested the sturdiness of this and are happy to report that you can knock the cottage over or tilt it upside down and the figures will stay in place if they’ve been snapped in.

I was also impressed with the bright, vivid colors and quality of the pieces. No cheap plastic here! Miss 18 months personally tested their durability and can attest to the fact that they can be thrown across the room and chewed on and still look brand new. 🙂
Once we completed several of the challenges, we brought out some of our other imaginative toys, as well as two other Smart Games we own (Little Red Riding Hood and Jump’IN) and the children created their own unique scene to play with.
Do you have children between the ages of 4 and 7 and up? If so, we highly recommend this game. Not only is it a fun game of logic that helps to build deductive reasoning skills, but it is also the perfect toy for open-ended play.
Snow White is available to purchase from Timberdoodle. We’ve purchased many items from Timberdoodle over the years – they have SO many fun and educational products, often times priced lower than other retailers.
If you aren’t familiar with Timberdoodle, they offer fantastic learning products for babies all the way up to high school students. We have used their curriculum for many years and have been very happy with not only their products but their amazing customer service as well. Not a homeschooling family? That’s fine too! They have an entire shop of products that would make the perfect gift for any child.
