We’ve been huge fans of Orchard Toys for quite some time now. In fact my sister and I had a few Orchard Toys games as children ourselves.
The most recent addition to our ever expanding collection is the Once Upon A Time Dominoes – this is basically just your standard game of dominoes however rather than matching spots you’re matching fairytale characters. A great introduction to a time honoured game!
What we love about it:
* As you would expect from Orchard Toys the dominoes are good quality and robust enough to withstand the game being played over and over
* The dominoes are a great size for little hands and perfect for playing on the floor
* It encourages observational skills
* Memory and matching skills
* Trying to make the most of your “hand” can also develop problem solving skills
* As with any game of this sort it’s great for learning that important life skill of taking turns!
* It can be played just as easily with two people as four meaning Ben and Chloe are able to play independently
What we’re not so keen on:
* Nothing! It’s fabulous!
*Disclaimer – We were sent the Once Upon A time Dominoes free of charge for the purposes of review however all thoughts and opinions are my own*
