This is a game for 3-6 year olds designed to encourage counting and very basic addition.
Spread the cards out on the table with the dogs showing upwards. Each player spins the spinner and chooses a dog with the same number of spots as the number on the spinner. They then turn the card over to reveal the number of bones in the dog's basket, one to three or none. Then it's the next player's turn until all the cards are used up. The winner is the one holding the most bones.
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 enjoying themselves.
