The new range of card games combines play and education.

fundels480The new Fundels educational card games range combines entertaining and colourful games and packaging, with themes such as language, conceptual thinking and mathematics.

At its launch, Fundels will offer four games across three educational themes, each with its own colour — a mathematics game (red), a languages game (green) and two conceptual thinking games (blue). The flagship premium games add to the fun with markers, dice and special wipe-clean cards for writing, all packaged in highly robust cases that are easy to carry and store. Players can flip a mini-card and write a word, then race the other players to win a counting game.

There is also a pocket money-priced standard version, which offers a take-anywhere-play-anywhere deck of regular flash cards full of spelling, counting and drawing fun.

Available to retail from January 2017, all games are aligned with the UK national curriculum.

Marco van Haaften, international marketing director at Cartamundi Services NV, said: “We set ourselves the challenge of bringing together the world’s favourite game format with ways to play that offer both fun and learning. With Fundels we have achieved that aim — in a way that will delight little learners and parents alike.”
