A surefire way to keep my children entertained is to surprise them with a game to play. Our family are huge fans of Orchard Toys which are all lovingly made in the UK without a battery or button in sight. We love how cheerful and educational their children’s games are and when I spotted their new mini games range I simply had to try it out.
Penguin Pairs is a cutesy matching game featuring thirty-two quirky penguin characters dressed up in everything from their finery and fluffy slippers to monocles and footballs. This game is suitable for 1-4 players aged 3-6yrs with the aim being to turn over the penguins to match the most pairs before the other players. Being a mini game it’s perfectly compact, lightweight and easy to take on the road, pop into a backpack or bring out for a sunny afternoon or sleepover soiree.
Not only are the perky penguins great fun for little ones who squeal with excitement for every match but this activity also helps to develop essential colour recognition, memory, personal, social and observational skills and can be simplified by removing several pairs of penguins should you wish to make the game easier for younger players. Penguin Pairs is a wonderful game for active little minds that’s also rather fun for parents too!
