PRODUCT: Orchard Toys Ten Green Bottles ( Toys Ten Green Bottles

DESCRIPTION: A 2-4 player board game, with the object of being the first player to recycle all ten of their green bottles! Includes 4 x jigged wall boards, 40 x shaped bottle cards, 1 x 3D recycling station and instructions. Suitable for children aged 3-6 years.

GOOD POINTS: Ten Green Bottles is a fun and educational game which is loosely based on the song of the same name, but with a slight recycling twist!

The game is designed for up to four players, and comes with a number of parts. Each player is given a jigged wall board which they must first slot together and place in front of them.

Each player must then place ten green bottle cards (numbered 1 to 10) across the top of the wall board, and forty dotty number cards (with spots to represent the number) must be placed face down on the table. The game also includes a fun 3D recycling station, or bottle bank, which slots together and stands in the centre of the players.

The aim of the game is to take turns to pick up a face-down dotty card, count the spots, and try to match it to one of the numbered bottle cards on their wall. If a match can be made then both cards can be posted into the bottle bank. Otherwise, the card must be returned face down on the table, and play passes to the next player. The winner is the first player to recycle all their green bottles.

This is a wonderfully imaginative game, which develops early concepts such as numbers and counting, and encourages recognition and memory skills. In addition, the game is ideal for stimulating social interaction and communication.

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!
