Official testerPRODUCT: Orchard Toys 'Farmyard' Dominoes ( Toys Farmyard Dominoes

DESCRIPTION: A 2-4 player game consisting of a set of 28 dominoes cards with the aim of matching up the farmyard animals. Instructions included. Suitable for children aged 3-6 years.

GOOD POINTS: A wonderfully colourful set of sturdy domino cards which are based around farmyard animals that will appeal to any young child.

Each domino card contains two familiar and friendly animals (from a range of six), including a cow, sheep, pig, chicken, horse and dog. These two animals may be the same or different.

To play the game, the dominoes should be shuffled and seven dealt to each player, with the remaining dominoes placed face down on the table. One player starts by placing one of their dominoes face up on the table, and the other players in turn must try and match a picture on one of their own dominoes to one of the pictures on either end of the line of dominoes on the table. If they can find a match, they must place their domino on the table with the matching ends touching. If a player is unable to find a match, they must pick up another domino from the pile and add it to their own. The winner is the first player to use up all their dominoes.

This is a fun and educational game, which is ideal for encouraging attention and observational skills, and developing social skills and interaction.

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: £9.50
