Orchard Toys Two by Two
Advantages: Great Noahs Ark box
Two by Two is a fun matching game by Orchard Toys. The game is based on Noahs Ark.
Inside the box is a cardboard Noahs ark box. At the top is a slit, a bit like a money box, where the cards fit in. The ark is in two pieces, the bottom of the boat is easily attached by placing the top on the holes that are already made to keep it in place. By unattaching it makes it easier to get the cards out. The bottom of the boat has a square hole. I'm not really sure why it is there as when you move the boat cards drop out. Despite this the hole is not big enough to take the pieces out easily.
There are 42 cards with brightly coloured animals on. These include toucans, tigers, elephants and many more. Some of the animals I don't even know.
All of the game is made from cardboard which is a great quality and has lasted a long time.
The idea of the game is to place the cards face down on a surface and match the animals up. When you find a pair you put it into Noahs ark. The children absolutely love this idea and try to push to have there go for this reason.
It is recommended for children over two. When we play it with younger children we often put the animals face up as they get impatient the other way around.
The only issue is losing the cards. As with a lot of games, some pieces have mysteriously gone missing, where to we don't know. This isn't the fault of the game though.
It can be bought for around £12 (Amazon) which I think is well worth the money. This simple idea provides a lot of fun.
