Orchard Toys is one of the UK’s favourite makers of educational toys and games. Since the beginning of the pandemic and school closures, it’s been more important than ever to make sure our little ones can learn through play at home. Orchard Toys offers a huge range of games that make learning fun! Let’s take a look at the top 5 trending games from Orchard Toys. Best of all, each of these top 5 games is under £10!
Our first trending game from Orchard Toys features different types of quirky shopping lists, including paper ones and a tablet which children will enjoy. A great way to extend learning is to ask children to recognise the different grocery items from their list and read them aloud, both while playing the game and on a trip to the supermarket! Shopping List is a game for 2-4 players, but booster packs about Fruit & Veg and Clothes will allow more players to join in the fun.
Smelly Wellies is a fun and simple matching game for children aged 2-6. Turn over welly cards to find matching pairs of wellies for your monsters. The first player to fill their board wins! Children of all ages can play and enjoy the game together, either as a simple pairs matching or a more complex memory game. You can also encourage children to identify the objects they can see on the patterned welly cards.
Match and Spell encourages letter recognition, teaches phonetic word building and promotes matching of pictures and words, from simple words like ‘cat’ to more complex four-letter words. There are two ways to play and the game is designed for both guided and independent word building. This is a simple matching game that provides a great way to introduce letter shapes and sounds.
This game is an Orchard Toys classic and has been a top 10 favourite for years. Children will develop their adding and subtracting skills and have fun talking about the interesting characters and placing the bus stops along the way! Race to the bus station, picking up and dropping off passengers as you go!
Spin the spinner, count the number of bubbles and collect the matching cards on your fish board. But watch out! If you turn over a shark card, it will eat all of your fish and you’ll have to start again! The player with the most fish at the end of the game is the winner!
