I bought this for my eldest daughter last Christmas, who at the time was almost 4 years old. I remember playing a similar game when I was a kid, and I thought it would appeal to her in the way it did to me, and also the bright colours of the beetles (or ladybirds as we like to call them) would really attract her attention. ***Build A Beetle*** Build a Beetle is made by Chad Valley and is suitable for children aged 3 years and above, and can be played by 2-4 players. Inside the box you will find 4 beetle bodies, 4 beetle heads, 4 noses, 8 eyes, 24 legs, 1 dice, 1 storage tray and 1 instruction leaflet. The object of the game is to be the first ...

Beetle, is the name of the game rowdy behaviour is usually the result! well it is for us on Boxing day. All of the family (which is naturally growing in numbers) decend on my aunties house to play Beetle. We have three stations to play at with an even number of people at each station. A dice is thrown by each player in turn very quickly and each dice reading represents part of the beetle. (it has 1 head,1 body 1 tail, 2 feelers, 2 eyes, and 6 legs) you start on a 6 which is the body, and once this has been achieved the other parts are added as the numbers come up on the dice that correspond with the body parts. You play in pairs opposite each other and ... Read the complete review

Build a Beetle is a brilliant boad game for families with young kids. I bet it's especially useful for families with more than one under five, thanks to how simple it is to learn to play. It's made by Chad Valley, and is available from Argos for only £5.99. I think that's a bargain buy for keeping the kids happy on a Sunday afternoon, and it would be a great idea for Christmas too. The aim of the game is simply to be the one to build a beetle first. You get four beetle bodies included in the box, along with a plastic tray full of beetle parts and a dice. Each player rolls the dice in turn, and as soon as they role a number one they can start to build ... Read the complete review

Like most children my 3 –year old loves to play simple games with me. He likes it even better when he wins and is a dab hand at finding ways to ensure he does! I always buy a few new games for Christmas and this year I bought the game build a beetle. There are several versions of this popular game and all are similar. The version I choose is by Chad Valley and exclusively available from Woolworth’s. I paid £ 3.99 during a promotional offer period. What do you get for your money? **************************** The game comes in a fairly compact square box making it easy to store. Inside the box are 4 plastic beetle bodies, 4 beetle heads, 4 ...

Firstly a tip, do not buy this game, like Yahtzee, you just do not need to. Beetle can be bought in fancy sets and they do have the advantage of being colourful but ultimately it is a game which you can play with just a pad of paper and pencil for each player and a dice. The objective is to build or draw the picture of a beetle. The picture to be complete must comprise the body, a head, two antenna or feelers, two eyes, a tail and six legs. Now you will have to agree on your own local rules but basically this is what we do. 1) You must throw a six to start and with it you can draw the body of the beetle, 2) Having thrown the 6 you must get the ...
