Orchard Toys is introducing two new games and a jigsaw into its range in time for Christmas.
Big Alphabet Jigsaw has 26 chunky pieces, each showing a different letter of the alphabet with colourful illustrations. The jigsaw comes with a full-sized matching poster, which can be used as a guide or displayed.
As well as teaching letter recognition and manual dexterity, there are ideas on the reverse of the box to promote discussion – children can talk about the characters and objects.
Farmyard Heads and Tails is a simple game which toddlers can enjoy on their own or with other players. Featuring 12 farm characters and objects to match, the game encourages observational and memory skills whilst introducing young children to the concept of turn-taking. The cards are wipe-clean.
Robot Run is a family game which involves players taking turns to match their robot cards by type or colour with the last card played. The winner is the first person to play all of their cards.
