    Games for small children are notoriously hard to come by. “Don’t Break the Ice” is one of the few available and a classic in its own right.
    My young son loves this game and we play all sorts of variations including moving the main ice piece that holds the bear to different places so we can experiment with the “physics” of the game. (So there is a true educational element.) We also try to put the ice pieces back in the frame using different patterns of insertion. This helps kill the time factor in getting the game pieces ready to play.
    With its minimum of rules anyone can pick this game up in a minute. It’s fun and can be played by “kids” of all ages. Given its low price, it’s a no miss. Even if little children get more fun out of making the bear fall than not, so what? Think of it as a more versatile “hammer & peg bench” toy.
    There are some durability issues. If one of the tabs that hold the ice breaks, you are out of luck. The frame consists of two pieces that slide together and the connection is prone to breakage. Still, at this price point it’s a lot easier to replace than many of the fragile toys that cost far more. In fact you could buy every toy in the Milton Bradley “Cootie” line and still be under the cost of just one other plastic toy.
    A good bet for a good price.

    I loved this game as a child. We still have the one I played with 16 years ago.
    Break the Ice is a simple game anybody can play. There is a man sitting on a big piece of ice. You want to knock out the pieces around him, but not knock out piece that will send him falling. It’s simple enough but it does take some stratedgy.
    We have a lot of kids that come through my house for different reasons, and I’ve never met one that didn’t get a kick out of this game. It’s a fun family game and a must for a small child.

    A wonderful classic toy! Buy it and keep it for life! I would only like to see this toy produced as it was originally. The frame, blocks and hammers are not as heavy duty as they used to be and it was the first thing I noticed…to the maker…they kids will play with it but the parents are buying it and classic toys that aren’t as we remember them are dissapointing. We await an “Original” version and we will keep it for life!
