For younger players, there is a Heads Up Charades For Kids version. Rather than the older pop-culture reference, this focuses on identifying animals, actions and items around the house. Also, there is a picture that appears on the app, held against the head, to help younger players. This adds a scavenger hunt aspect to the game where you are trying to collect the pictures to complete the deck.
4+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Still, it’s important for parents and guardians to ensure they understand in-game purchases and have spending limits set-up. Very young children love guessing what they are and getting help from parents, guardians and siblings. Older children like the board game feel of the adult version.
