Let's go shopping...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Orchard Toys Shopping List (Toy)
This game is a great twist on the classic memory games where you turn over a tile or card to reveal the image. In this case you take it in turns to turn over the cardboard squares to see the item, it could be anything from milk to socks - and if it's on your shopping list then you put it in your shopping trolley.
The game is incredibly easy to play and can get fiendishly competitive as you pick up a square revealing an item that one of your fellow players needs to complete their shopping and you try to put it turn it back over quickly and hover your hand over it to try and distract from its actual location! I have a 6 year old girl who enjoys playing this and a 4 year old who also plays but only 1 or 2 games at a time. Each game lasts for about 5 minutes-or-so if there are two of you or a bit longer if there are more.
I've had a few games for my children and they've been tricky to set, the rules have been overly complex, and they've not captured the interest of me as an adult. But this game takes seconds to set up, and as it requires you to use your brain to remember things when you become involved in the game, it maintains your interest. It's also quick to pack away - something all parents will appreciate!
You can buy expansion packs for these too - the packs replace the shopping list and the items so that the game can remain fresh and not get boring. Expansion packs include Fruit & Veg and clothes.
In a nutshell: A genuinely fun game which is easy to set up and simple to play - there are no complex set-ups, simply take a shopping list and make sure the items are face down. It should provide plenty of opportunity for your children to play by themselves and you can join in too.
