This game was actually given to me by a friend who's children had outgrown it. As my children are younger then hers she thought they would enjoy it.
The game is 'wee little piggies' and the aim of it is to pick the correct pigs to complete the song.
It is an electronic game and so it needs 3 AA batteries to work.
Included in the box is:
The game looks like good fun but as the instructions had been lost before my friend gave it me I couldn't quite figure out how to play it so I had to ask my friend to explain.
Basically you pick up a pick from the fenced area and it plays part of a song, you have to try and get the pigs in the corect position so that the song makes sense.
It's actually a really fun game and my children loved it.
It's very funny listening to the song when it's not quite right and they jump and clap once they get the song to play correctly.
It is educational as it learns children to listen and how to put things in the correct sequence.
It would be enjoyed by all pre-school children.
Wee Little Piggies takes the popular nursery rhyme and mixes in an element of deduction and memory for young players. After inserting three AA batteries (not included), randomly place the five plastic pigs on spots inside the pen. Electronic sensors in each of the mud holes and on the bottom of each swine let the game know to begin and assign each of the five spots one line of the nursery rhyme. If you discover the little piggy that went to market on your first try, you have the chance to find the piggy that stayed home. If you pick up the piggy that ate roast beef first, you have to wait until your next turn to try again. Once a player finds all five pigs in the right order, the game's friendly voice asks you to rearrange them again, making a new sequence for the rhyme to continue the game. Four cardboard pigs that stand in plastic bases make up the pieces players move around the board. The player that reaches the end first gets to hop in the pen with the rest of the pigs and is rewarded with congratulations and encouragement to start a new game.
