2.0 out of 5 stars Educational but not fun., 7 Nov. 2008
This review is from: Orchard Toys Pop to the Shops (Toy)
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.
