Product Description

An exciting , fast moving spelling game. The game consists of 17 word cards, which are put in a pile face down on the table, and 67 letter cards, also put face down in a separate pile. The first player turns over a word card, and then immediately turns over the sand timer.Then, as quickly as possible, they turn over the letter cards, one at a time, to try to spell out the word from their word card before the timer runs out. If they manage to do this, they keep their word, and try to complete another word with a new word card, in the same way, before the timer runs out. If they do not complete the word correctly, their unfinished word card and letters are passed to the next player, who resets the sand timer and proceeds as before. The winner is the player who has managed to complete the most words when the pile is used up. Aimed at 5 to 9 year-olds, children who are already reasonably confident at spelling will enjoy racing against the sand timer, while those who are a bit younger will soon gain more confidence. New readers will find that the game helps with letter recognition, and may enjoy just picking a word card and finding the correct letters in their own time, without the sand timer and other players. The box features an educational guide, showing how the game fits in with your child's education. The game is suitable for 2 to 4 players, and is made of durable, recycled board.

    I'm a big fan of Orchard toys/games as we have quite a few that are well played with however theres not much of a challenge in this one as it spells the word for you, you just have to copy it which is not what I bought it for.

    Think we played it twice but its off to school fundraiser at christmas

    I am a great fan of Orchard toys and have many of their products. But I have to say this is my least favourite of all the Orchard games that I own. Being a teacher I'm always on the lookout for games to use with the children and unfortunately this one is a little boring and time consuming. I also find that many children find the timer stressful. I rarely use this game now and it sits in the back of my cupboard.

    This toy can be used for ages ranging from 2 to whatever age u like. The 2 year old can name the pictures and makes a long line of fitted jigsaw, the 4 year old can find the letters which match the word and fit them in while playing against the 7 year old who is given half the time to do the same job. The pictures can be sorted into living and non living and the game played along those lines, also wonderful to get the 6 year old to separate the vowels from the consonants in a given time. The timer is sturdy and performs well throughout unless highjacked by the baby! Good for Home Educators!

    This is a great game, which makes learning to form words fun. Our (just) 5-year old grandson is very keen to read and we wanted to foster his interest at this early stage, so bought this for his 5th birthday. Tremendous fun and very good value.
