PRODUCT: Orchard Toys Old MacDonald Lotto ( Toys Old MacDonald

DESCRIPTION: A 2-4 player board game based around a farmyard theme, with the object of matching the farm cards to the pictures on the player's farm playing board. Includes 4 x farm boards, 24 x farm cards, 4 x farmer cards and instructions. Suitable for children aged 2-6 years.

GOOD POINTS: Old MacDonald Lotto is great matching game from Orchard Toys, which comes in a fun and colourful box that has instant appeal.

The game is designed for up to four players, who must each choose a farm board. Each of the four farm boards has a different farmyard scene, and shows seven farm-related picture squares of animals and objects, as well as one of four farmers.

The game also includes a collection of farm cards which match all the pictures shown on each of the farm boards, and these must be placed face down on the table. The four farmer cards must also be placed face down in a separate group.

The aim of the game is for each player to take turns to turn over one of the farm cards. If they can match the selected card to one of the picture squares on their farm board, the player keeps the card, but only after making the noise or action of the subject on the farm card! If they cannot match the card, it must be returned face down on the table, and play passes to the next player.

Once a player has matched all their picture squares, they must then match their farmer by turning over one of the farmer cards. The winner is the first player to successfully collect all the matching farm cards and farmer on their farm board.

This is a very educational game which is ideal for developing matching skills, confidence and social 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!
