Oscar’s Trash Race is the best of the bunch, as it actually teaches counting. A dump truck drops of a certain number of the same object, then the player must pick the trash can with the correct total. Then it’s a race to get the items. The Grouches are not speedy, and harder game variations add some obstacles that are welcome from a gameplay perspective, yet beyond my son’s current ability. We had the most fun with Oscar’s game, and I felt like he was actually learning something. However, I did need to explain why perfectly good televisions (and toothbrushes, et al.) are considered trash in the game!
