What they say: A fun counting and colour matching game for ages 4-7, featuring giraffes in wacky patterned scarves! Players must pick a silly giraffe body, which include a footballer, a diver and a ballerina! Next they must try and build up their giraffe body with as many scarves as possible by matching the colour dice to the coloured spots on the back of the cards. Remember, the aim of the game is not to have the tallest giraffe but to get the most scarves! The winner is the player with the most scarves on their giraffe once everyone has found a matching giraffe head. Using quirky characters and innovative gameplay, Giraffes in Scarves helps to make counting and colour matching fun! It is also great to develop general gameplay skills such as confidence and taking turns. Wrap up for winter with this fun and hilarious game which can be played by up to 6 players!
What we say: “We absolutely love Orchard Toys games and were thrilled to receive this new game to review. My son is 6 and my daughter is just about to turn 4, the prefect ages for this game.
As with all of the Orchard Toys that we have played before, setting up was easy and a quick look over the instructions meant we were ready to go! The aim is to build your giraffes body with scarves by rolling the coloured dice and matching with a colour on a scarf. If your giraffe has the most scarves by the end of the game, you win!
I do find with Orchard Toys games that you can easily change the rules, based on the age of your child. We played a few games the wrong way around; by starting with all the scarves on the giraffe and the first to ‘lose’ them all won! This made for a few more rounds before interests were lost…
Another great and educating game from Orchard Toys and great value too at just under £8.”
