Orchard Toys Knickerbocker Glory is a 'fun counting and colour matching game', and this is the reason I bought it for my eldest daughter around 2 years ago. She was aged 2 at the time and I wanted to get her into playing games; learning to take turns etc. And as Orchard Toys had many simple yet attractive games available I bought this one, along with Red Dog Blue Dog; and then I let the fun begin. Orchard Toys are well known for their fun learning games, and there are many available with various different themes, but the basis of most of them are the same - your children get to learn their colours and numbers through playing the game, at the same time as ...

This was the first board game that both of my daughters ever played at just under age 3 for both of them. It was the first Orchard game that I ever purchased, actually at full price from a shop, though I have since acquired a largish collection of other Orchard Games, mainly from varied Fairs and Car boot sales. It is currently £5.87 from Amazon, the rrp is £7.00. This is a great introduction to the concept of taking turns and playing a game for little ones, and the game play is not too annoying for parents either. As with all Orchard games it is a quality and British made product. It is made from nice thick wipeable recycled cardboard. In the ... Read the complete review

We own a fair few games aimed at the young and preschool market. A number of these are from orchard games, which are fun, well made, and can withstand rough toddler behaviour. This particular game, Knickerbocker Glory, is aimed at 3-6 year olds. The aim of the game is to collect up pieces of fruit to put on your gamecard, jigsaw style, and the winner is the first person to collect all 6 pieces and complete the card. The game is differentiated to suit the younger end of the market yet still provide a challenge to older kids. The game came with 2 dice. With one dice, you can roll and get a colour from the fruit pieces, so you only need to be able to ... Read the complete review

I love Orchard Toys games, they are generally well thought out and well made. Orchard games are made of thick cardboard, they are incredibly colourful and very appealing to children. I have used various games throughout the years at work and Orchard is one of the best games manufacturers for young children. So when I sat the knickerbockers glory game I bought it straight away to use at work and home. The little boy I worked with at the time knew his numbers and colours but didn't spontaneously ask for anything very often until he saw this game. It is a spin on a lotto game. Each player gets a board with a cut out knickerbockers glory in the centre, there ... Read the complete review

Orchard make fantastic games for young children and the Knickerbocker Glory game is no exception. It is for 2-6 players, and aimed at children aged 3 to 6 years old. My 3 year old son has just discovered it and loves it! The aim of the game: to be the first person to build your knickerbocker glory. In the box you will find 6 playing cards, each with the six different contents to create your knickerbocker glory. There will also be 2 different dice as there are 2 playing modes. Each of the ingredient cards has a different number of fruit on, and each piece is a different colour - for example there are red strawberries, an ... Read the complete review
