Product Description

A very easy game that encourages counting skills. The 24 cards are placed on the table, with spot sides uppermost. Throw the die and then pick up a card with a matching number of spots on it. Turn the card over, and see how many little ladybirds are hiding on the leaf. Some leaves won't have any ladybirds on them, and sometimes there won't be any cards left with the same number of spots as on the die. At the end of the game, players have to count all their ladybirds, and the winner is the player with the most. Or you can make it even more exciting by waiting until all the cards have been picked up before turning them over to count the ladybirds. One player could also be nominated to count everybody's ladybirds at the end. As well as helping with counting and addition skills, this game also teaches observational and logic skills. It doesn't take too long to play, so will hold a child's attention throughout the game. The cards can also be used to play other games, such as 'Snap' or 'Pairs', or used for counting practice. There is also an educational guide on the box which shows how the game can enhance your child's education. The bright colours make this a visually appealing game, and the durable, recycled board with a wipe-clean finish means that the game will withstand plenty of use. It is suitable for 2 to 4 players, aged 3 to 7.

This is my daughter's favourite game at 3 and has been for near on six months now since we first got it. Shes not yet old enough for most board games or able to deal with skill, tactics or such and this is really good as a modern game for younger ones of I'd say 3 and up as well as being non character based and traditional. Cards are thick and withstand heavy use which wasn't expected for the price.

She is enthralled by the ladybird element as she is into bugs and the cards are large, bold images which are appealing. She even really likes the large red and white spots domino element and shaking the dice/turn taking. there's lots of things to count basically, being a practical, educational Maths game involving counting and addition in the guise of a game so they do it happily without knowing it. It is also designed to tie in with the National Curriculum KS1, encourage observation and logic skills and communication and sharing with others.

We use it to play dominoes actually as a second game (spots or ladybirds)or do snap/number comparrisons with other players.

Orcahrd toys in general I think are great and go down well....she also really likes the "Shopping List Game" and "Farmyard Dominoes" by the same company.

A fun counting game by the well respected Orchard Toys, that helps pre-schoolers with their number work. Firstly you collect cards by throwing the dice, then when they have all been taken, you turn them over and count how many ladybirds you have each! A very simple game but lots of fun and older ones can join in too without being bored. This game takes about 10 minutes max to play so is ideal for the attention span of a pre-school child. I would heartily recommend this game. We play it every evening.

My 3 year old granddaughter simply loves this game, the first real box "game" she had been given. It's a durable product, simple to play but at the same time is teaching counting - well worth buying

We purchased this for our little boy who at the time was 2 years and 9 months. His counting and recognition of numbers we thought was great at the time which is a reason behind why we got it for him, however he got bored with it very quickly and therefore the game would never be finished. Now that he has turned 3 he is taking more interest in it and plays for longer but it is much better to be played with more than 2 people as the game then doesn't last that long. The product however is a great tool for children to recognise the numbers and match them from the dice to the cards and is lots of fun. The age range of this game is correct with a starting age of 3.

My 3 year old loves this game. It's quick and easy to play and very educational. Her counting has improved as we count the spots when we throw the dice. It's also helped her understanding of 'taking turns' and that sometimes you win but sometimes you lose.

The box and pieces are robust and have been taken to pubs, restaurants as well as peoples houses and been in contact with sticky figners etc.

The whole family from Grannies downward are now very familar with it. I've had to buy some other orchard games just to give us a break from this one as we were having to play it 10 times a day at one point!

I've now bought this as a present for other kids - I can't recommend it highly enough.

My little boy is 3 and loves this game it is great for counting as well as getting used to the spot patterns on the dice as these match to the cards. My one crit would be that the dice is quite small and for counting spots can be quite difficult...saying that he coped very well with the dice and didn't bother him at all, but just somrthing to consider.

My Granddaughter loves this ladybird game. She is just 3 and keen to learn her numbers so this is ideal. They do not realise how much they are learning through the play. The game parts are sturdy and will last until my other Granddaughter is old enough. All the family join in so it's great as kids can sometimes get bored in adult circles. The game box is a good size to pop in a handbag or change bag so can be whipped out when the need arises.
