This beautifully illustrated, colourful game is exactly the same as the traditional game of dominoes, but made specifically to appeal to young children, aged approximately 3 to 6. The dominoes, printed on sturdy, recycled board, show pictures of dragons, flying pink unicorns, mermaids, princesses, pixies, friendly witches and fairy Godmothers.
How is it played?
The cards are dealt to the players, and the remaining ones are placed in a pile face down on the table. The first player puts one of their dominoes face up on the table, and subsequent players try to match a picture from one of the dominoes in their hand to one at either end of the line of dominoes on the table. The winner is the first person to play all their dominoes, or, if nobody can finish, the player with the fewest dominoes at the end of the game.
The game is very simple, and as it relies solely on pictures, even younger children may be able to join in successfully. The game can help with counting, colour recognition, and number and language awareness; you can increase the play value of the game by asking your child questions about the pictures on the dominoes: what does the fairy Godmother have in her hand? What colour is the princess’s dress? Can you find a card with a mermaid and a pixie on it?
The 28 included dominoes are made of sturdy, recycled board, and the game can be played by 2 to 4 players.
