Orchard Toys Shopping List 2

DESCRIPTION: A 2-4 player memory game, with the aim of finding all the items on your shopping list! Includes 32 x item cards, 2 x shopping trolleys, 2 x shopping baskets, 4 x shopping lists, and an instructions leaflet. Suitable for children aged 3 years upwards.

GOOD POINTS: Orchard Toys have just released a relaunched version of their much loved Shopping List game, with a fresh look and updated features but all the same gameplay.

Aimed primarily at preschoolers, Shopping List is a simple, fun and educational board game, offering a great way to encourage observation and memory skills as well as social communication and learning to take turns.

The game consists of four sturdy cards in the shape of shopping baskets or trolleys (each with eight designated spaces on it) and four shopping lists, each displaying a different list of eight products to 'buy'. All these products also appear as separate itemed cards.

To play, each player choses either a shopping basket or a shopping trolley, and a shopping list. All the shopping item cards are spread out on the table, face down.

The idea is for the players to take it in turns to turn over a card and if it matches one of the items on the player's shopping list, then they can place the item card in their trolley/basket. If the player cannot match it, they show it to the other players and place it back on the table (face down!). If other players have been paying attention they will remember where that card is should they need it later on!

The winner is the first player to fill their shopping basket or trolley with all the items on their list. 

The instructions are clear and easy to follow, and as always the game comes in an attractively packaged box with useful 'educational guide' on the reverse.

In our opinion, this is a really fun game for young children, with easy-to-follow rules and a fresh revamped has never been so easy!

BAD POINTS: None, other than there are lots of separate pieces which may be easily lost over time, as with any such game. 

PRICE: £7.50
