This is a game for 3-6 year olds designed to encourage matching and counting skills.
The cards are laid with the spots face up on the table. The first player rolls the dice and picks up and keeps the card with the same number. On the other side of the card is a leaf and possibly a ladybird or two. The next player then takes their turn. The game ends when all the cards have been taken and the winner is the person who has accumulated the most ladybirds.
Made of sturdy cardboard.
Orchard Toys is a Norfolk-based company designing and making their games in-house. They have been going for years and have a reputation for producing good, honest games which are both fun and educational. All the games are fully tested by teachers and, of course, by children, so they are totally safe and dependable.
Most of the games are aimed at the 3-6 year olds. To an adult the games will inevitably seem somewhat simplistic but they really know that age group so I never have any hesitation about recommending them. Obviously children develop at different rates so some children may not be able to follow the instructions at first but that doesn't seem to matter as they enjoy playing with the colourful cards. As the child develops, it isn't long before they fully appreciate the game and they benefit from the educational aspects whilst still having fun.
