I first came across Orchard Toys last Christmas when a friend told me how good they were and so I bought a couple of games for my daughter. Since then I have become a huge fan of the games due to not only the quality of the games, but also the educational value and of course fun! I am now always on the lookout for these games when I am out and about, but also tend to look on Ebay to see if I can grab any bargains! I recently bought one from Ebay called Insey Winsey Spider for the great price of just £3.00. The only downside to that was that there were no instructions but I asked a friend how to play as she had it too, though really it wasn't all that difficult to figure . Read the complete review

This game is from the excellent "Orchard Toys" 2001 Catalogue,. and is suitable for children aged between 3 and 6. We recently bought it for our daughter (who is 2 and a half) and she loves it already! The company who make this product have, according to the catalogue, been established for 30 years. They now have a vast range of imaginative games, jigsaws and creative activities. It is re-assuring to know that all their games have been extensively tested in playgroups, nursery and primary schools, as well as in the home. The company have also won awards for their standards of safety, durability and quality. Their new catalogue is very well ... Read the complete review

Orchard Toys are a good quality name in puzzles, games and activity packs. I didn't think there was much out there in the way of board games for under three's but I have found two games that my two year old absolutely loves. Shopping List is a game for 4 players (recommmended for 3-7 years). Each player has a trolley and a shopping list. All the shopping items are on small pieces of card and are faced down on the table. Each player turns a card over and play is something like the memory pairs game. If you turn over an item that is on your shopping list you put the item in your trolley. My daughter is patient enough to wait until it is her turn to 'claim' . Read the complete review

As you may be aware if you have read any of my other reviews I am a big fan of the Orchard Toys range of games. They are great fun but also educational and I think anything that does that is a real bonus as children certainly learn through play. My son received the insey winsey spider game for Christmas when he was three. This is an appropriate age for a child to have this game I think. The age range on the box says age 3-6 and I would say this is pretty accurate. The box is very bright and shows spiders-but cute spiders! If they were scary looking spiders there is no way I would let it in my house lol. The spiders are smiling and wearing ... Read the complete review

Before I bought this game for my daughter I was in two minds as to whether she would be too young for it at two and a half. The game is designed for children aged three and over, but my daughter does seem to be very inquisitive and loves to count which swayed me in buying this game. I bought this from Amazon for £7.00 just before Christmas. Insey Winey spider is my daughter's favourite nursery rhyme and this game is based on the rhyme. It's essentially a board game but simplified for young children to introduce them to playing games as well as teaching them counting and shapes along the way. The game consists of four different coloured boards which ... Read the complete review

|Pointless Board Game|
Poor game play. To much faffing on and you need a quiz master to get any enjoyment out of the game.
Encourages children to spell correctly.
Scoring system complicated and doesn't reward the exact things the game is trying to encourage

simple, easy to play
won't last your child that long
Easy to learn, appeals to a range of people, fascinating cards, enjoyable
Scoring a bit complicated, not for the ultra-literal, no real strategy, a little over-priced
