I've just created a 'Listmania' list of the 10 best games my 3 children have and this is definitely a must have purchase for age 3-7. It is excellent value for money and great fun.

This game is ideal for very young children as it is a very simple introduction to board games. It's much easier than similar board games (like the excellent washing line game, pop to the shops etc) but still has a huge fun factor. It is also a quick game so children don't lose attention. There are also no small pieces like dice or counters to struggle with.

You take a board each which has the outline of a glass, dessert glass, knife, fork and middle plate and you start of with one face down pile of cards. Each player choses a card in turn from the main pile or a face up card from the discard pile. You match the card to your board and have to shout "tummy ache" if you take a card covered with spiders, maggots or other types of yukky stuff. The aim to to collect enough 'healthy' eating cards on your plate to win. If there is a space on your card you must place a yukky card down but the aim is to swap it for a 'heathly eating' card. The winner is the first person to fill up their card/place mat with 5 edible choices.

It has great educational value for this age range as the children have to match their cards to the background. It teaches them which side the knife and fork usually go (although doesn't work for left handers like my daughter) and most importantly can set a discussion going about healthy eating choices. Most of the food with the bugs are the unhealthy options like pizza, burgers, chips, ice cream. It is not a preachy game though as there is also a frog in the water, millipedes on the lettuce leaves and worms on the tomatoes.

This game was given to our son for his 3rd birthday and a year on it's still a firm favourite and is played at least once a week. The fun seems to come from yelling 'TUMMY ACHE' at the top of his voice - unsurprisingly. He's got so good at playing it that he can now play 2 boards simultaneously.

The aim is quite simple, collect a main dish, one vegetable(with fork), one starch (with knife), one drink and one desert. If you get a 'tummy ache' card yell it out loud and then wait for your next turn to hope to get rid of it. The Tummy Ache cards include hamburgers, ice cream and potato waffles all with a gruesome selection of bugs crawling all over them.

The child learns a little about balanced diet while having a lot of fun. I highly recommend it.

I bought this game when my children were aged 2 and 4. It was an instant hit then and is still one of their favourites a year and a half later. The concept is so simple that even very small children can join in, but it is still lots of fun for older children and even the adults.
Boo hiss to the reviewer who wanted it to be more 'educational'. For pities sake, aren't things allowed to be just fun anymore? The fun in the game comes primarily from trying to get your 'favourite' cards. In our house this means the trifle and the strawberry milkshake, and I doubt that the game would be half as much fun if they were forced to choose low fat yoghurt and water in order to win.
A top game from Orchard Toys. Very hightly recommended.

Great fun. Quick & easy to play. My 4 & 10 year old girls love it. Requires mainly good luck but a little skill can be used when choosing to select a new card or to take one discarded by previous player. Does not take long so no time for boredom to set in. Lightweight & easy to pack for trips away.

You can pretty much buy anything in the Orchard Toys range with your eyes closed and know that it'll be a hit.
All together now: "Tummy Ache, Tummy Ache !"

I played this game as a child 30 odd years ago and was delighted to see that it is still on the market. My children love it and it has been a firm favourite ever since it was first opened. It has really helped language development too, discussing whether something is good or horrible and what should be swapped. It is incredibly simple but effective and helps everyone to take turns.

This version is also very much based around healthy food, which can't be bad. Anyone for spider and chips?!

My oldest son received his first Orchard Toy game two years ago for his 4th birthday. We loved it so much that we have purchased many more since and regularly give them for gifts. Tummy Ache is no exception. The game pieces are sturdy and colorful. And, the game itself teaches the importance of eating healthy foods versus junk foods in a fun way.

this game was bought as a christmas present for my three children aged 8, 6 and 3. They had a few goes of the game on christmas morning and really enjoyed it and it was simple to play, all you have to do it pick a card from the top of a pile of cards and match it up to your plate and if you pick up a card with tummy ache on you have to say 'tummy ache' and put it on your dinner plate till you can replace it with nice food or drink cards, the person who completes their card first wins the game. I think the colours of the game cards are bright and appieling to all children.
