Orchard Toys Shape Snap
Most people are familiar with the traditional game of 'Snap', which involves trying to match your card with that of another player. Shape Snap makes the game particularly appealing to young children, and helps them to learn about shapes, colours and counting along the way. The game is particularly suited to players aged from 3 to 6, but the colourful illustrations will appeal to much younger children as well, who will have fun identifying shapes, colours and images in the pictures. The game can be played by 2 to 4 players; all the 48 cards are shuffled and dealt face downwards to each player. The first player turns their top card over and places it in front of them, picture side up. Each of the other players does the same in turn. If a player sees any two top cards that match, they quickly shout "Snap", and the first person to shout wins all the cars from both of the matching piles, which they place at the bottom of their own face-down pile of cards. Once children are familiar with the different shapes, they should also call out the name of the shape, i.e. "Star snap!" The game ends when one person has won by collecting all the cards. The cards are beautifully illustrated using bright, bold colours, and show a range of different shapes, some familiar, such as circles, squares and diamonds, and some more obscure, such as hexagons, cubes and cones. The cards are large, approximately 13cm x 19cm, and many of the pictures will show more than one example of the shape - you could ask your child how many stars they can see on the card. The game will help your child with maths and English (there is an educational guide on the box), and the cards can be used for so many other fun and educational activities.

Orchard Toys Slug In A Jug
The 48 rhyming cards in this box can be used to play 3 different versions of this game. In version one, players each choose a card, and have to pick another from the cards spread face down on the table that rhymes with the one they have chosen. The aim is to make as many rhyming pairs as they can, and they have to make up a sentence using the cards that they have. They can increase their scores by collecting three or four rhyming cards, but must make up a sentence using all the rhyming cards they have. Once they have a rhyming pair, players can continue by taking more cards from the middle, aiming to produce more rhymes. The winner is the person with the highest score. In the second version of the game, players try to match the word from the top of a pile by turning over unseen cards on the table, collecting pairs that rhyme as they go. The winner is the person with the most rhyming pairs at the end of the game. In the third game, players each take a hand of two cards, and pick unseen cards from the table which they hope will rhyme with one of the cards in their hand. If they find a rhyming pair, they put the pair to one side and pick another to bring their hand back up to two cards. The winner is the player with the most rhyming pairs at the end of the game. Made from durable, thick card, and with colourful, cheerful illustrations and clear writing, this will help children with literacy skills. The game is suitable for 2 to 4 players, ideally aged from 5 to 9.

Orchard Toys - Le Jeu de Coccinelles "Ladybirds Game" - Langue: anglais
A very easy game that encourages counting skills. The 24 cards are placed on the table, with spot sides uppermost. Throw the die and then pick up a card with a matching number of spots on it. Turn the card over, and see how many little ladybirds are hiding on the leaf. Some leaves won't have any ladybirds on them, and sometimes there won't be any cards left with the same number of spots as on the die. At the end of the game, players have to count all their ladybirds, and the winner is the player with the most. Or you can make it even more exciting by waiting until all the cards have been picked up before turning them over to count the ladybirds. One player could also be nominated to count everybody's ladybirds at the end. As well as helping with counting and addition skills, this game also teaches observational and logic skills. It doesn't take too long to play, so will hold a child's attention throughout the game. The cards can also be used to play other games, such as 'Snap' or 'Pairs', or used for counting practice. There is also an educational guide on the box which shows how the game can enhance your child's education. The bright colours make this a visually appealing game, and the durable, recycled board with a wipe-clean finish means that the game will withstand plenty of use. It is suitable for 2 to 4 players, aged 3 to 7.
