The Very Hungry Caterpillar Game ($19.99)
Your, mine and our kids’ favorite books The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Brown Bear, Brown Bear What do you see? come to life in a new collection of board and card games from the The World of Eric Carle, the wonderfully imaginative author who started it all.
Newly introduced to the bright, vibrant and colorful stock of products that sprouted from the lovable books are:
Eric Carle’s ABC Game
The Very Hungry Caterpillar Game
The Very Hungry Caterpillar Match and Munch Game- Dr. Toy 2012 Award Winner
We will be giving away each of the four new games in our 25 Days of Christmas giveaway, but first up is the The Very Hungry Caterpillar – Game
The game is designed to be played by children 3 and up, and for 2 to 4 players.
The children immediately recognized the images and their favorite characters when they unwrapped the game. Mine were and they were also excited to see them come alive in this new form. Each kid gets a turn to spin the wheel and travel along the board as the caterpillar goes from an egg to a butterfly. There are 40 food pieces that he gets to eat along the way. It teaches counting and number recognition, learning to be patient and take turns and colors.
It was more favorited by the youngest of my three children as the older ones already have the skill sets that the game teaches. It is a fun way to supplement some of the knowledge she may be getting from pre-school or to prepare a child for going to kindergarten as these will be the basic skills a kid will need to know to succeed in early childhood.
Since the children do not watch TV or play video games during the school week, this game will be a wonderful addition to have among various other non-media options to have. It is also a good game for game night and for play dates.
Get it HERE as an supplement to the other mindless toys your youngest kids may get this year.
