We have the Colours & Shapes game and the Matching Numbers one and my four-year-old daughter loves them!
The Fundels Colours & Shapes game is a really clever game that gets children’s brains working hard! It’s a single player game that consists of 30 example cards and 20 see-through cards. You choose an example card (there are different difficulty levels to choose from) and try to copy the picture by using the transparent cards that have one shape/item on each one.
It’s a brilliant educational game that’s perfect for my eldest daughter. She loves things like this! She soon understood what to do and loves playing it.
You can use the box it comes in as a stand for the cards in use which is ideal for when travelling so that you don’t lose any cards.
The second game is all about numbers. Matching Numbers helps children recognise and rank numbers 1-10 and also helps children learn how to write them. It’s based on National Curriculum KS1 and suitable for ages 4+ and 2-4 Players. You get instructions for the different games you can play within the box and also an erasable marker to use on the writing cards. Click the picture below to see a large version of the game rules.
My four-year-old has known the numbers and has been counting for a few years already but she is just learning how to write them, so she really loves the 10 writing cards and erasable pen that you get in this game. They’re really helping her to learn how to write the numbers which is wonderful as she’ll be starting school soon!
There are a few variations of games that you can play with this set — one of which only uses some of the cards and is intended for younger players like my daughter. She likes this one and also just loves playing with the cards, lining the matching number sequences up or practicing her number writing skills.
She adores both her new games and I think they’re great too. The hard cases that they come in are perfect as they’re easy to pack, carry and open and also keep everything organised and protected.
