Official testerPRODUCT: Orchard Toys Doodlebugs ( Toys Doodlebugs

DESCRIPTION: An NATLL award-winning 2-4 player matching game, with the aim of discarding all your 'doodlebug' cards. Includes 40 x circular 'doodlebug' character cards, 1 x 'wild card', and an instructions leaflet. Suitable for children aged 3 years upwards.

GOOD POINTS: Doodlebugs is a wonderfully simple and educational board game for young children, which is ideal for developing social communication as well as colour and object matching skills.

The game is made in the UK from 100% recycled board, and consists of a number of sturdy circular card disks, displaying an array of 'doodlebug' characters in a variety of bright colours. Five cards are dealt out to each player, and laid face up in front of them. The remaining cards are placed face down in a separate pile.

The idea is for the players to take it in turns to turn over the top card of the pile and decide if they can match the card with one of their own cards, either by colour or shape. If they can match it, the player gets rid of one of their cards, but if the card cannot be matched, the player gains that one too!

The winner is the first player to discard all of their cards.

In our opinion, this is a fun little game which is full of educational qualities and will appeal to any young child.

BAD POINTS: None, other than there are lots of separate pieces which may be easily lost over time. Orchard Toys do however offer a very useful replacement service for any elements of their games (excluding puzzles) that do go missing!

PRICE: £7.50
