This good value set incorporates two games of lasting popularity whilst giving them a fresh and magical new twist. Simple to set up – just join together the 6 jigsaw-type pieces to make the board and you’re ready to go. In Fairy Snakes & Ladders, players must race to the enchanted treehouse – but will they be sent up the rainbows or down the rope ladders? Flip the board over and it’s time to gather counters at the fairy ring in the game of Ludo. The games are recommended for ages 5 – 9, but our 4 year old tester played very happily, so I would put the age range a little younger. Who, out of the friendly fairies and unicorns, will be your child’s favourite?
This fun family board game has plenty of educational benefits; it develops counting skills, encourages turn-taking and group play, and promoting observation. Orchard Toys and Games are always really popular in our house – the colourful distinctive boxes make them stand out, and the children know the games are guaranteed to be fun. Parents love them because as well as providing hours of fun, every game inculcates a range of essential skills. A lovely new take on old favourites. Buy from Orchard Toys.
