In the Jungle Number Line game players have to reach the end of the number line first or seize the other players’ counters to win. The messages on the spinner and number line tell the player how many spaces to ‘count on’ or ‘count back’ – great for addition and subtraction too. There are three skill levels, enabling players from around 3+ to 7+ years to play together. Similar principles apply in the Insect Alphabet Line with players moving up and down the letter line trying to reach ‘z’ first with additional word-building skill levels. The cute animal counters are neatly stored in the folded game and the integral spinner provides much activity and excitement that we have grown to expect from ZooBooKoo’s educational toys and games.
But it gets even better: on the reverse of each game is a metre long white board. The Insect Alphabet Line has large letters to trace and a hangman game. While the Jungle Number Line has large numbers to trace and a four-in-a-line connecting game.
The games have been put through their paces by children, parents and teachers with the kids wanting to play again and again; the parents particularly appreciating the compact size for storage and travelling; and teachers delighted to see beneficial enjoyable kids’ learning games with three levels that work really well.
So in true ZooBooKoo style, these charming games are great fun with significant learning value. Stephen Wattleworth, ZooBooKoo MD, told us, ’We are delighted with the Concertina Board Games. They reflect our ZooBooKoo toys and games ethos in every way: compact, intriguing, fun and affordable with multi-level learning value. We thought it would be hard to follow the wipeable Word Searchers and multiple choice Quizonics we launched last year but the Concertina Board Games do that just beautifully.’
The concertina board games are shrink-wrapped with a euro hook and retail at around £9.99 each. Visit us in Hall 3, stand number M50. Alternatively please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 01473-735346 or visit ZooBooKoo (http://www.zoobookoo.com) for more information.
