What we love about it:
* The game pieces, as you would expect from Orchard Toys, are sturdy and well made to withstand many many hours of play
* The shopping lists include an image; giving younger children the option to picture match whilst older children can be challenged to read the items
* Each shopping list is written in a different font which a bonus for a bit of reading practice
* The game is simple enough that once I’d explained the rules Ben and Chloe were able to play it happily by themselves
* As is always the case with Orchard Toys games, the game doesn’t take too long so you can reasonably expect your child’s attention to be held
* Matching the images on the shopping list and also keeping an eye out for other people turning them over is great for developing observational skills
* Paying attention to the cards as other people turns them over develops concentration
* Remembering where the different cards are draws on memory skills
* Counting can be encouraged by asking “How many things are left on your list?” etc
* Personal and social skills are encouraged by turn taking
* It’s a bargain at £7.50!
What we’re not so keen on:
* Nothing, it’s ace. Get it on your Christmas lists!
