We’ve been sent a couple of games from Orchard Toys to review, and since we’re already huge fans of these games for preschoolers, it can come as no surprise to hear that we love them! If you’re looking for a last minute stocking filler, Christmas gift, or a fun game to play in between now and Christmas (and let’s face it, we all need ideas on how to keep the kids entertained while they climb the walls with excitement!) then look no further. Here are our thoughts on the Cake Monster and Christmas Surprises games.
This game is aimed towards children aged three and upwards, and is a simple game that teaches a multitude of skills. It’s great for
- Observational Skills
- Number and Counting Skills
- Personal and Social Skills
- Matching and Memory Skills
- Hand Eye Coordination
Not to mention it’s great fun too!
The object of the game is to collect a full plateful of cakes, and there are two ways to play. Like other games from Orchard Toys, the game is fun, educational and very easy to play, so perfect for preschoolers jus beginning to learn counting skills and turn taking.
The pieces are brightly coloured and durable- all printed on thick cardboard that withstands even the heaviest of hands!- and the whole game play is short and sweet, making it great for limited attention spans. This would make a great stocking filler or gift this Christmas….
