Product Description

Product Description

This best-selling shopping game will help children learn about social skills as well as handling money and giving change.The game will teach them to distinguish between different coins, and to work out the value of their money. Every player takes on the role of both shopper and shopkeeper, so it also encourages role playing and polite conversation. Each player is given the same amount of plastic money, including 50p, 20p and 10p coins. Players move around the 'village' by rolling the die. Each time a player passes the Bank, they collect another 20p. The first player starts by picking a card from the table - this will determine what item the player must buy first, and therefore which shop they will need to aim for. Visit the different shops on the jigged playing board - the Mini Market, the bakery, the newsagent or the greengrocer - to buy familiar items from the other shopkeepers. Don't forget to ask politely. Players learn to work out the correct coins to use for payment, and have to work out how to give the correct change as well. An educational guide on the box shows how the game is suited to your child's education. A bright, colourful and fun shopping game, suitable for 2 to 4 players aged from 5 to 9 years.

Verified Purchase
We have a number of Orchard Toys, and with the exception of the Greedy Gorilla game, have found them to be of a consistently high quality. Pop to the Shops is no exception. Our 5 year old daughter loves this. It took her a while just to get her read round how the money works, with change etc. but she really took to this game, and its a firm favourite.

The rules are simple to pick up, the board is colourful and encourages them to get involved, and it brings through some good role play for shopkeepers! Can't really think of any minuses!

All in all - very good value, and highly recommended.

This game is a little more complicated than some of the other games in this range, but well worth it. My daughters ask to play it again and again. My 5 year old and her friends are enjoying learning to distinguish the coins and add them up to pay for items. My 3 year old also loves the game; it holds her concentration and she is starting to recognise the different coins.

One of the most fun aspects of the game is the roleplay element; when the time comes to buy something, the shopkeeper and customer have to talk to each other politely and you can experiment with different voices and accents for the shopkeeper which adds to the fun.

As other reviewers have mentioned, it is quite a long game and also it takes a few minutes to set up. But it's easy to make the game quicker by declaring in advance that the first person to buy (eg) 4 items will be the winner, instead of waiting until someone has bought 6 items.

The game is most fun with 4 players and wouldn't be so much fun with just 2 players.

If your children enjoy the Orchard Toys 'Shopping List' game, this is the ideal next step from age 3 1/2 up.

An excellent game for 5- and 6-year-olds (my daughter, 5, loves it; little brother, 2, loves joining in though the maths is somewhat beyond him!) to help them start to learn to count and add up money. There are only 10p, 20p and 50p coins but that's plenty to get them started with adding up simple amounts in their heads. The game takes maybe 15-20 minutes to play and (as well as being terribly educational) most importantly it's fun!

Like all Orchard games (we've got plenty!) it's simple, well-thought-out and well-made, with nice bright cartoony pictures of familiar things. Recommended!

I love Orchard Hill games and we have owned this one for a couple of years but we have found it is too difficult to gain much fun from it.
The games last too long and my children have always lost patience with it before the games end.
The main problem we find is it involves too many throws of the dice to get to each shop and the children often lose track of which direction they should be moving their people markers.
From an educational point of view it is potentially brilliant in the way
each child has to pay for each shop item with the correct coins but the added confusion of matching cards and taking the correct card makes it more hard work than fun. To be honest ny children have much more fun playing shops with a pretend till and counting out correct play money.
I'm all for children learning through play but this game is too difficult for small children and not interesting enough for older children.
Sorry to be a dissenting voice but this is one purchase I regret.

I've used this game with children 7-9 who were learning English, and they constantly asked to play it. It is truly excellent in developing polite standard phrases for greeting and buying things, for developing a knowledge of English coins, and for developing numeracy skills with money. It also helped practice some vocabulary, and could help with thinking about categories (different products are found in appropriate shops). We had a lot of fun, and they really enjoyed it, in the same way that children that age enjoy Ludo, and anything where they get to put on voices and act out little plays.

If your children are too young to play Ludo, they will not enjoy this: you have to be able to decide where you are going, as well as count on how many moves you took. They also need to at least be able to mostly count on in tens with help to have a chance of working out the correct coins and change with your help: if they can't do that yet, you'll probably to working out their money for them each time, and they're unlikely to get much out if it yet, other than the fun of role-play.

I would mostly veer towards the older end of the age range given for this game: if only they would issue a version with Moshi Monsters or some other branding on it, you could continue to get play out of it into the Upper Juniors!

If you're willing to be a bit silly and over-the-top in your role-play, this game is a lot of fun, and it is the very best game I've come across for teaching basic money skills. Highly recommended, when they're ready.

An excellent game for children starting to learn about money. My kids (8 years and 5 years) both really enjoy it.

Nice little game in which you have to purchase items, whilst running a shop yourself, selling your items. I bought it for my 7 year old and he enjoys playing it with his 5 year old sister. It is great for helping them to learn about the different coins (50p, 20p and 10p provided), giving change and adding the coins together to make the correct amount.
A straight forward game, made fun by the different items that you need to buy and excellent value for money. I would recommend it for 6-7 year olds based on our experiences.
