Daisy has been commenting that she misses the Super Sorting Pie that she got to play with a year ago.
So I figured it was time to let them have a play with another fruit game, Avalanche Fruit Stand this time.
The object of the game is to be the first player to collect one of each type of fruit. As is typical for us, we just started playing and made up the rules as we played.
The games comes with:
- 2 Easy Grip Tweezers
- 40 Pieces of Fruit
- Fruit Stand Game Board
If you are a stickler for the rules, they are printed on the back of the fruit stand and so, easy to read at any time. They are also difficult to lose, game parts vanishing is a frequent occurrence in our house.
We set up the fruit on the stand and began to play. The spinner tells you what to fruit to pick; colour, number or the star, which means you can steal from another player (that part we did read). The game is fast paced and short, perfect for younger players.
Our cat got in on the action too but his aim was to knock the stand over!
Although this game is recommended for children over the age of three, Rose enjoyed playing too. Her wee hands only coped with the tweezers for a few minutes but what a great way to build up muscle power in the hands. We have a couple of these tweezers at home and play with them often.
We will be back next week to tell you about how we played with the fruit pieces.
